This is a beginner plan for people who want to lose weight and gain strength and have about 7 hours per week to train. Mountain biking is all about power to weight ratio. This plan is for the athlete that has some weight to shed before the season starts, or just someone who wants to maximize their early season watts per kilogram.

Warp Speed Coaching

Coaching to help endurance athletes reach peak performance. I am a USA Cycling Level 3 certified coach, and I specialize in mountain biking, but I also coach running, trail running, road cycling, triathlon and cyclocross.

I can coach diabetic endurance athletes. As a type 1 diabetic, I know diabetics have their own individual struggles and I can help maximize results while taking into account an individual's issues using training, diet, and recovery.
