Robert Smith, MS, CSCS   Powersmith Performance

Coach Smith has worked as a strength & conditioning coach since 1999, with experience training athletes from a variety of sports. Focusing on training for cycling since 2007, Coach Smith specializes in training with power utilizing the powerful new metrics in WKO4 to individualize each athletes program.


I started my career as a volleyball coach in 1997. Quickly shifting paths to focus on strength & conditioning coaching in 1999, I gained experience working with athletes from a variety of sports at the Institute of Human Performance in Boca Raton, FL. After riding recreationally throughout college, I started personally pursuing XC and marathon distance mountain biking events in 2007.

Starting in 2010, I began specializing in training with power for cycling events. First using WKO3, and now utilizing the powerful new metrics in WKO4, I use a data-driven approach to individualize each athletes program. Based in South Florida, I have experience with MTB athletes racing XC, marathon and ultra endurance distances, and stage races; road cyclists racing crits, circuit races, road races and time trials; and cyclocross athletes.
