I am a coach with the Peaks Coaching Group, and we are the experts in training with a power meter and data analysis. If you are looking for the best, then I will exceed your expectations and help maximize your training time. We also can help you with race tactics, nutrition, skill development and we have 4-6 cycling camps each year.
Each athlete's situation is different, but there are some common features in my approach to working with riders.
Know where you want to go: In order to craft an intelligent training plan, you have to know what you want the end result to be. I work with all my athletes to set reasonable yet challenging goals.
Communication must be open, clear, and honest: The success of any coach-athlete relationship depends upon the quality of communication between the two. Both sides need to be clear about their expectations, and it is vitally important that the coach be a good listener.
Be open to new ideas: My experience as an educator has proven to me again and again that teachers can often learn much from their students and the same goes for coaching. The coach-athlete relationship is a partnership in which both sides have contributions to make and both must be open to new ideas. In addition, my background as an academic also helps me keep up with the latest research and helps me use it to address each athlete's unique needs.
