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. Coachees on the Standard Plan come at no additional charge. Coachees on the Monthly Plan will get the discounted rate.
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.
