To "Attack" is to put forth a hard effort to separate yourself from the rest of the field or group. 


Attacking requires confidence, determination, and grit.  I believe that these traits are trainable and need to be present in competition, but more importantly, in training and in daily life.

KEY PRINCIPLES

COACHING PHILOSOPHY

Coaching for cyclists seeking high performance.

WHY?  I became a cycling coach because it is merger of three things that I am passionate about: Cycling (obviously), Data Analysis/Technology, and helping others reach their full potential.   

HOW?  It's all about the process.  I am a USAC Level 3 Coach and Power Certified by Hunter Allen (the guy who wrote the book on training with a power meter).  I use the framework developed by Hunter and Dr. Andy Coggan to train my athletes.  In addition, I am a big believer in having a "Growth Mindset" and incorporate that in my coaching.  Most importantly, EVERY ATHLETE IS DIFFERENT!  You will not get a canned training plan from me… your plan is based on your goals, strengths, limiters, and schedule.

WHAT?  I coach through TrainingPeaks, which is a fantastic tool for cyclists.  I also use WKO4 for deep analysis of training data.  WKO4 offers insight that was never before possible and is real game-changer for training and racing with a power meter.  For clients in NW Ohio / SE Michigan I put together events (seminars, training rides, power tests).  I am also the coach for a local racing team, the Maumee Valley Wheelmen.  You can explore the different coaching packages on the Services page

Always Compete- Standing on the podium is the result of winning every day by knocking out key work outs.


Work Smart, then Hard - Time available for training is our biggest limitation.  We need to invest time up front to determine goals, strengths, weaknesses, and optimize your time on the bike.


Embrace the Process - The process of continuous, measurable improvement is its own reward.


Everyone is Different - No two athletes are the same, make your path your own.


Belief - The first step to progression is believing you can get there.
