Steve is the owner and coach at Bell Lap Coaching, a small firm focused on providing fully customized training plans and coaching for cyclists and endurance athletes. Bell Lap Coaching also offers on-the-bike skills clinics, training camps, seminars and race-day support and consultations.
Bell Lap Coaching's founder, Steve Weller, has been coaching since 2004, and brings practical experience and a scientific background to his athletes. He holds a BA from Dartmouth College in biology and physiology, and is both a USA Cycling Certified Coach and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
In his years of coaching, Steve has worked with hundreds of athletes, ranging from those using cycling as a fitness tool to professional and Olympic athletes racing domestically and abroad. Under Steve's training and guidance, his athletes have achieved upgrades to every license category, numerous amateur and professional wins, and medals at National and World Championships in road, cyclo-cross, mountain biking and track.
After more than a decade of racing road, track, cyclo-cross and mountain bikes, Steve now focuses on helping his athletes reach their goals and athletic potential. He most recently raced as a Cat. 1 for the BikeReg.com / Cannondale Elite team (formerly Fior di Frutta), managing the team after his retirement from racing.
Steve lives in western Massachusetts with his wife Darcy, and two dogs, Elsa and Ingrid. When not exploring the local roads or trails on his bike, Steve enjoys barbecuing, swimming in rivers, and taking his 1977 FJ-40 Land Cruiser apart, and putting it back together.
