1. He helped me setup a training schedule that I can follow using weights/bands/core/etc
2. He helped me change my diet, so I now eat healthier (which makes me faster on the bike) and with the appropriate vitamins/protein
3. He got me to setup indoor trainer, with appropriate training routines
4. He re-fitted me on my old bike, along with assisting me in selecting and setup on my new bike
5. He got me to join the local cycling club, where I have worked my way up to the “fast group”
6. As a result, now I can set goals to be in the top 20 for the year on various Strava segments, and sometimes even in the top 20 All-Time on various Strava segments. After all, the reason we are hiring a cycling coach is go-faster!
7. I can document my progress with video, as I run front and rear GoPros on my bike. More cycling videos with data overlay click here.
8. And, I’m doing all this at the age of 61, duking it out with the younger riders on Strava and group rides!
I started working with Jake in my preparation for BC bike Race 2019.
I Jake and I reviewed my goals, my current fitness, and together formulated a plan for success.
I decided to work with Jake because I was impressed by his knowledge, and his holistic approach to fitness and wellness.
I was important to me to work with somebody local who can spend time with me in person (vs. online).
After a successful BCBR I continued training with Jake. I currently don't have any big races on my plan. I view our collaboration as an investment in myself.
