Work One on One with a Cycling Coach

Tempo Endurance athlete wins ironman medalTempo Endurance athletes come from all cycling disciplines, from cyclocross to triathlon to track. Each finds that they thrive within our personal and goal-specific approach – we’re on your team, supporting you to succeed and working with you to troubleshoot problems, push your limits, and find balance between riding and all of life’s other demands.

We coach a mix of adults and kids, and are especially known for our work with middle- and high-school-aged youth, women, and masters racers.

No matter the rider, we begin with each athlete by setting both process-based and outcome-based goals. Based on those goals, we establish a solid annual training plan to get you there! We continue supporting you in regular check-ins by phone, email, and in-person when possible.

Using Technology To Make You Fast

We deliver most training plans via TrainingPeaks. We were early adopters of the TrainingPeaks online platform and after years using other systems, we’re confident that this is the most effective coaching platform on the market for endurance athletes.

  • INSCYD is for all athletes.
  • INSCYD will benefit your training schedule and performance with both a scientific foundation and precise predictability.
  • With INSCYD you’ll get full picture of your physical capacities and also a prediction of your training and racing outcomes.

The performance you are looking for is composed of a variety of components and metrics, but if you only focus on FTP, heart rate zones, or keep training only according to your Rate of Perceived Exertion, you’ll miss accuracy and efficiency.

For example, with INSCYD you can finally understand the interactions between your aerobic system and your fuelling needs. Do you wonder, “How much should I consume per hour in order to maintain my performance?” With INSCYD, you’ll know.

INSCYD takes into account, and connect to one another, the most important metrics for training purposes

  • VO2max
  • Anaerobic threshold
  • Lactate accumulation and recovery
  • Fat and carbohydrates combustion
  • Recovery
  • VLamax (or glycolytic capacity)

Each of the above metrics measured by INSCYD is critical to performance and remember, each sport performance is predictable and can be broken down to these fundamental elements. r

Take VLamax, for example. Although you might have never heard of it, VLamax. It is the single most important measurement to enhance your performance. VLamax is the maximum production of lactic acid in your blood and gives you a complete understanding of your anaerobic metabolism (which yes, is crucial in endurance events, too!). VO2max is aerobic, now we know the anaerobic piece, which turns out to be at least as important.

Holistically coaching people means you need to understand their responses to training and life stresses such as limited sleep, lifestyles, and work. Whoop is a fantastic platform that closes a feedback loop that previously was often guessed at by coaches.

To complement our work together, we’ve developed a strong network of cycling and wellness professionals to help you achieve your goals.  This includes massage therapists, aerodynamic consultants, personal trainers, nutritionists, sports cardiologists, physical therapists, and more.

But don’t take our word for it – our athletes can share the experience of working with us better than we can!
