My name is John Wessling and I am the owner of Wessling Fitness. My methodology is based around my educational background, my personal experiences, and the knowledge of other high level coaches I surround myself with. My main focus is motorsports, with an emphasis in motocross and supercross racers, while also helping cross country skiers, cyclists and runners reach their goals.
I grew up playing every sport imaginable, but mainly enjoyed racing motocross until I was about 13 years old. From there I fell in love with running cross country, and a year later cross country skiing.
Cross country skiing ultimately became my passion and taught me how to train, eat, and rest properly. I skied at the NCAA level for the College of St. Scholastica under head coach Chad Salmela. The methodology I learned on how to train was both from a classroom educational view, but also by training and racing myself. Training along side some of the best athletes in the world opened my eyes to the possibilities different training can minupulate the human body.
From there, I have coached some of the best skiers in the nation/world, and currently I am training the best Motocross and Supercross racers in the world. I am currently an avid runner, and cyclist, competing in Cat 1 mountain bike and cyclocross races as often as I can.
Train smart, and train hard; in that order.
