Championship Proven Wattage-based Road, Criterium and Time Trial Training Programs

Gain a 6-8% Power Increase in your First Season
On average the competitive cyclist men and women athlete clients that I coach have realized increased power at threshold of 6-8% in their first year, and have achieved success in their specific disciplines. Over the past 7 years, these athletes have gone on to win twelve California SCNCA/CBR State TT championships and USA Cycling Masters National TT championship gold medals, USA Cycling Masters National B.A.R. (Best All-around Rider), a MN state TT championship gold medal, 4th at UCI Masters Worlds Time Trial Championship, Fiesta Island TT course record, and multiple bronze and silver podium placings using these custom designed wattage training programs. Current athlete clients include a wide range of competitive cyclists, from first-year bike racers all the way up to elite cat 1 cyclists, masters national champions and masters world champions.

Advanced Science-based Professional Training
Race proven custom power-based training programs include detailed focus on aerodynamics, race specific strategy, strength training, and advanced recovery. I've used these proven training methods to coach a number of road and criterium racers, time trialists, and triathletes (bike leg) throughout the U.S. to wins and podiums at every level: from the first time new racer to the Cat 1 elite cyclist to multi-time masters national and masters world champions, in local popular time trials to race day at the State/National TT, criteriums, road races, Race Across America RAAM, gran fondo/century PRs, and endurance track pursuit events.

Custom Time Efficient Periodized Coaching Plans
Structured yet flexible periodized annual training plans focus on one or two "A" level races per season, using other "B" and "C" races as preparation and training. Your plan is designed and tailored unique to your needs, taking into account work, family, and other portions of your life. For optimal success with the program, indoor mid-week trainer rides are utilized in most cases (unless your climate and schedule allow for year-round outdoor rides). I suggest the use of a high-accuracy power meter (SRM, PowerTap, Quarq), a high-quality fluid resistance indoor trainer or rollers (e.g. Elite Muin, Kurt Kinetic, Wahoo, 1-up, CycleOps, etc.), 60-90 minutes of training time per day mid-week, with 8-14+ hours total per week to train. These personalized coaching and training plans have resulted in real-world athlete client results with personal attention and flexibility to life's demands; a combination that is truly effective in building your race fitness. Plans include:

  • TrainingPeaks Premium account included
  • 10-week strength program, core/plyometrics
  • Custom workouts emailed daily
  • Unlimited email communication
  • Wattage testing throughout the season
  • 20-minute weekly training review phone call
  • Weekly summary and power file analysis
  • Aero test data access and TT equipment review
  • Visual time trial position recommendations
  • Wind tunnel run consultation at LSWT
  • Aero testing consultation at the LA Velodrome
  • Training rides in the San Diego area

The 2014 coaching rate is $250 per month. There are no start up fees or minimum duration commitments and plans are billed month-to-month. I limit the number of athletes that I coach in order to provide quality communication and attention to my clients' needs. There is a waiting list.
