Programs to Fit Every Athlete

Selecting a Coach

Looking for a coach?

Effective coaching requires understanding how different individuals respond to training, and knowing how to adjust training based on how the athlete responds.  I provide well thought out, individualized training plans and schedules, and offer timely ongoing feedback, and adjustments, to the training.

Coaching is my full-time vocation, and yet I still limit myself to no more than 10 clients at one time. I provide a service that not only draws on my more than 20 years of coaching experience, but also offers unprecedented availability to my clients.
I’ve worked with professional, and amateur cyclists, ranging from absolute beginners to state, national, and world champions. I’ve developed my coaching abilities, philosophies, and methodologies from racing, formal training, and my experience working with a diverse group of clients with various skills, interests, and athletic abilities.

I work with clients all over the world, as well as local to the Bay Area in California. If you think you might be interested in having me coach you I welcome you to contact me to set up an interview.

Performance Testing

Physiological Performance Testing

If you want to know about your V02 max, fat verses carbohydrate metabolism, power training zones, training thresholds, and aerobic verse anaerobic energy system balance, I can take you through an easy to follow, but challenging, power profile test, and then analyze the data to determine these parameters for you.  This can be done on your own (you send me your power files after following my instructions), or in person with me pacing, and guiding you through the actual tests.  All tests are done on your bike, with your power meter.  This keeps all the data relevant to your training.
Tests are $500 in person with me, or $300 if you do the power tests on your own and send me the files for analysis.  I will compile a test data report that provides the following information.
– Training Thresholds
– Power Based Training Zones
– Aerobic and Anaerobic power balance
– Metabolic Profile of Fat and Carbohydrate burning
– Calculated V02 max
– Training Focus Recommendations based on test data and athlete’s goals.
Please contact me for more details.
