Hi! I'm a long time both athlete and coach on Training Peaks. I enjoy coaching all levels from pure beginner to national champions and really like to focus on communication and connection with the athletes. I enjoy providing detailed training plans as well as working with individual clients. Additionally, when possible, I love seeing a rider's skills improve via in-person skills development sessions, either 1:1 or in a group setting. Take a look at our webpage and reach out- I'd love to chat!
A dedicated and seasoned cycling coach, Coach John uses a proven combination of consistent and personalized communication, goal setting, nutritional education, customized training plans, and the latest technology in data collection to help athletes meet and exceed their goals. His athletes have won international, national, and countless regional titles at all endurance events including road, track, cyclocross, and mountain biking.
On top of numerous coaching qualifications (listed below), John brings more than 20 years of experience as a competitive endurance athlete. Personal achievements include Ironman distance triathlons, marathons, pacing athletes at the Western States 100, and extensive racing in the disciplines of cyclocross, track, and road cycling.
Committed to giving back to the cycling community that sustains him, John volunteers as performance director for Oakland Composite High School Mountain Bike Team and is co-director of the Earlybird Training Series that is part of USA Cycling’s Beginner Racing Program.
