Coach Bio

Full-service coaching delivers a lot more value than just a training plan and data analysis. I care about how you are, not just the workouts you’ve done, and I make the successful integration of training, nutrition, career, and lifestyle a top priority. I have a degree Exercise Physiology and 20 years experience coaching with CTS. I am also the co-author of 8 books, including "The Time-Crunched Cyclist", as well as some of the most-read and shared training articles on the TrainingPeaks blog.

I’ve been a full-time professional coach since 1999, and an endurance athlete for much longer. I have a BS in Exercise Physiology from Wake Forest, and I was an elite amateur bike racer in the late 1990s. In addition to coaching I’ve co-authored eight books on training and sports nutrition, including “The Time-Crunched Cyclist”, and produced more than 20 full-length indoor cycling videos. Currently my own training focuses on being fit for training camps and ultra-distance cycling events like the Dirty Kanza 200 and the Leadville 100 mountain bike race. And at home I’m happiest playing with my two young boys, preparing fresh vegetarian and vegan meals with my wife, and tinkering in the garage.

In addition to coaching, my other role at CTS is Editorial Director, so I keep my athlete load very low at the moment and am mostly available for Time-Crunched Athlete questions.
