Val Hopkins

I create personalized training plans for all types of cyclists, for those just getting into the sport by riding their first gravel grinder to seasoned elite riders who specialize in crits and road races. I recognize the differences between how women and men need to train, and how much age really does matter. My plans include strength training workouts that work with the progression of the riding intensity. I also offer indoor alternatives for when you just don't want to ride outside.


Val is a USA Cycling Level 2 Coach, a USA Cycling Power Based Coach, a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and she is USA Olympic Committee Safe Sport certified. She decided to establish Liv Power Cycling to share her knowledge and experience as an elite athlete with others.

As a former member of the U.S. Speed Skating Team, she was able to quickly turn to cycling to stay fit and healthy as a working mom. When the New England weather forced her to embrace indoor riding, she bought a power meter and hired a coach. In less than 4 months, she was at the top of her game racing the New England circuit of ladies pro races. After 4 seasons, at the age of 45, she won the New England Ladies Pro Criterium championships. This was all because she had a structured, periodized training plan and could measure strength and fitness gains with a power meter. It is this knowledge and experience that she would like to share with you to help you achieve your goals.
