Every fall/winter is usually the time I get the most inquiries about coaching. Many work out to be clients and some don’t. I learn more from each interaction and I truly learn the most from the folks that sign up. I am lucky to work with some extremely informed clients. Many have read more cycling books or have more racing experience. I always look at this as an opportunity to learn and to grow.
One of the great gifts of coaching is the inspiration you get from your clients. It gets me out on the bike more. I am further pushed to do more research and stay more informed on new power meters, nutrition, training methods and psychological approach for athletes. Ultimately, I am a better coach and even racer due to the folks around the sport that I get to support.
Thanks to the folks that allow me to be a part of their cycling success.
