Coaching

I coach beginners to pros; individually, in groups, at camps; in person, via e-mail, Skype, and telephone.

 

I generally conduct or participate in San Diego group rides several or more days a week. Visitors are usually welcome, and informal coaching advice is generally provided at no charge.

 

My philosophy and training approach? May I suggest you read a copy of my general racing book Smart Cycling published by Simon and Schuster, or HIT (High-Intensity Training) for Cyclists eBook.

 

Here is a partial listing of riders I have coached and coaches with whom I have collaborated. I work closely with several coach associates. These coaches may be a better match for you than I am, or may be available for coaching when my coaching practice is full.

Episodic Coaching

I answer episodic or intermittent questions via e-mail or telephone. $100 per consultation which includes same-subject follow-up queries received within two weeks.

 

Hourly consultation, at $250 per hour, is also available.

 

I can also help with more extensive one-time consultations, such as setting up wind-tunnel testing.

 

I and my coaching associates are available for intensive weekend or week-long private coaching in San Diego, CA and elsewhere. Please e-mail us at  for details.

There is a waiting list. I'm more motivated to coach riders who are themselves motivated. The rank order of my waiting list is somewhat dependent upon your interests. If you'd like to fill out a goal sheet and be placed on my waiting list, please e-mail me at .

 

I generally coach at two levels of intensity:
 

1. Standard. I provide weekly to monthly training plans, answer questions, and provide advice. This level of coaching normally entails a weekly training log report, weekly review of heart rate and/or power downloads, and e-mail or telephone conversation. $500 per month.
 

2. Intensive. Unlimited coaching. Typically includes above as well as daily review heart rate monitor or power downloads and twice a week contact. $1,000 per month.
 

Although there is a monthly fee, not all months of coaching are equal. The monthly fee represents an amortized value. During the course of the year we will have busier times and quieter times.

 

For riders in San Diego, several-times-a-week training rides are generally included.
 

 All of my cycling ePublications (8 books, more than 100 articles) are included to assist you in your training.

 

There is a $500 registration fee for either level of coaching intensity. This $500 fee is refundable after one year of continuous coaching.

 

Payment is due the first of the month, via check or via PayPal.

 

Alternatively, I can provide an annual plan. I review your past training, current fitness, cycling psychology profile, nutrition knowledge, bicycle fit, and future goals. I outline and submit to you a comprehensive 12-month program to help you achieve your goals. All of my cycling ePublications (8 books, more than 100 articles) are included to assist you in your training. Once monthly follow-up e-mails or telephone calls are included. $2,000 via check or via PayPal.
