The day we register is the day we need to start preparing!
Personally, I started preparing at the the end of the last race. You see, my goal of 2017 was to finish every race of the entire season. Mission accomplished. Each race brought a new reflection, a new challenge, and new insights into what I want to accomplish in the 2018 seaon!
Before I dive into what I want to accomplish, I’m going to be straight up about this! I am a strength & conditioning coach specializing in improving your performance by channeling my obsession for MTB and Science through my education and experience to create a personalized exercise prescription that is entirely based on your strengths, weaknesses, and goals. These might not be crystal clear to you yet, but that’s ok because it’s my job to create a clear trail to success with you. The reason we’re starting now is because I am not going to give you a quick fix, I am going to make you work for it as much as you work in every race. So yes, this is an invitation to work with me, train with me, give me the opportunity to coach you to improving your performance.
Selfishly back to me. I’m typing this with 90-seconds before registration opens. My goal this year is to ride as fast as I possibly can for every stage. Race seriously, safely, joyously. What’s the difference between that and last year? Last year, I did a lot of coasting to ensure I finished… hold on have to register!
Ok, I’m all registered! As I was saying about last year, I was successful with finishing. I’ll highlight two of the many areas I will be working to improve: First is a mental gear change from the liason constant low intensity work to high intensity at the start of a stage. Second, I’ll be focusing on my ability to maintain a high intensity effort while maintaining focus for an entire stage. Over the course of the off season, I’ll be chronicalling my training routines on and off the bike, and my rationales for my program. THIS NEXT SENTENCE IS IMPORTANT. What works for me might benefit you slightly, but you will NOT get the response you’re truly desiring. That is why there is a contact form at the bottom of this page. Starting the beginning of 2018, I will be training ONLY Mountain Bikers out of SISU Strength House in Seattle, Washington. Before we start training, we need to talk about why we’re training, and what we’re going to accompish together. I recommend small groups (no more than 5 people) because we ride together so why not train together. The reason for only 5 is I can provide each participant the individual coaching and programming that I’m promising.
