My areas of expertise are road, mountain and cycle-cross. I offer coaching plans that include daily detailed workout prompts that include time, intensity, watts, heart rate, and specific description of the workout. I will also create a one time training plan for big events and I provide nutrition guidance. I coach all levels of athletes and specialize in athletes that must maintain a sustainable family/work/training life balance.
I have been riding, training and racing for over 20 years and I am currently the owner and head coach of Beyond Category Coaching, LLC and the head coach for DU cycling.
I choose to operate as a complete coaching program, and do not solely focus only on science. For instance, I do not overlook the components of “the game” of cycling vs. “the physiology project,” remembering that I am coaching athletes to race or achieve their specific event goals, not just to score higher on strength and lactic threshold tests. Heart rate, wattage, cadence, and perceived effort can be used in training prescription and review. I am proud to be able to help athletes progress towards their goals with or without the use of power meters.
BCC exits to empower, challenge and motivate athletes to GO BEYOND! I use a Simple.Effective.Results approach to coach my athletes (ask me about this). Beyond Category Coaching believes in responsible coaching practices that center around long term athletic development and the teaching of athletes to self-monitor their bodies and minds. BCC guides athletes in identifying realistic goals and expectations for themselves while encouraging them to seek and accept challenge. BCC also emphasizes that the coach-athlete relationship is vital and a personal one and that the written training plan is less valuable without the trust between the coach and athlete.
