I started coaching cyclists in 2008 while training and racing as a pro. I learned the art and science of coaching from my long-time coach Dr. Arnie Baker and through my work with many other coaches and athletes. Perhaps it’s my background as a teacher combined with my education as an engineer, but it’s safe to say that I love coaching people and helping athletes work towards their goals.
I work with athletes from juniors to adults-of-all-ages who have a variety of experience and cycling objectives. If you have goals, are fairly motivated, and are interested in learning more about yourself and cycling, we may be a good fit!
Coaching Plans: I currently offer two levels of individualized coaching: Standard Plan (based on weekly updates) and Monthly Plan (based on monthly updates). Each of my coachees keeps a training log excel spreadsheet and emails me with training files according to their plan. Coaching is year-round and follows a cycle that are aligned with your goals and events.
Rides: When I am in San Diego I tend to do regularly scheduled rides 2 or 3 times per week. This is a great time to ride with coachees and spend more time on the bike. If you’re from out of town and weekly rides aren’t possible, I highly recommend coming to Borrego Camp or to San Diego so we can ride together while you are in town. I travel quite a bit, so there’s a chance we can meet up on the road, too.
Trainer Program: I lead Arnie Baker’s High Intensity Training 13-week Program each winter. This is included in my coaching plans. It is a great tool in preparing for the season of racing or for your target events.
Borrego Camp: All of my athletes are invited to attend Borrego Springs Cycling Camp in December at a discounted rate (Coached Athlete Price = Cost of Camp – Monthly Coaching Fee).
Other Coaching: I offer hourly consulting for individuals on-the-bike, via Skype, or in person at a rate of $75/hour. I’m also available for coaching camps and clinics for groups or teams. Pricing is specific to the event.
Event Add-on: For athletes who have the Monthly Plan, I offer a one-hour meeting for event specific preparation for $50. This is great for athletes who are rolling on their monthly plan but have a need for additional help for a target event.
