Improve your strength, durability, and endurance as a cyclist or runner to be your best and healthiest to tackle your bucket list adventure goals. Your performance over the long-term depends on endurance training for your event, targeted strength training, and yoga for mobility.
I am a former middle school teacher and lifelong endurance athlete, who retired early in to start a coaching business that helps a limited number of cyclists and runners like you improve their performance and check off their bucket list goals.
You have your bucket list of events you want to do, maybe with time goals or simply to finish.
But how do you hit those marks with limited training time and still have fun along the way? And how do you stay healthy while you train?
I’ll help you with coaching that includes endurance training, strength training, and yoga to improve your strength, durability, and endurance as a cyclist or runner.
As a cyclist or runner, you are always moving – but only in a forward direction.
To improve your performance, you need to improve your mobility and core strength without having to become a pretzel. I’m an older guy with lots of past broken bones, so I don’t move like a 25-year-old former dancer!
I’ll help you you move better, feel stronger, and breathe better, regardless of your age, ability, and flexibility.
You can improve your performance, strength, and durability by doing the right kind of strength training.
Not only will you build strength and fitness with lifting weights, but you will move better through life, prevent injury, and keep running or cycling as long as you want to!
You can do strength training with me at my studio in Muskego, WI. You can also purchase strength training plans or courses.
What's Your Adventure?
So what are your goals?
What adventure goal is on your bucket list?
- Riding the Stelvio in Italy? (That’s one of mine!)
- Running parts of the Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin?
- Skiing your best time at the Birkie?
- Bikepack a long dirt trail?
- Beating your best time on a 5k?
- Completing a century on the bike?
- Improve your Sprint Triathlon time?
- Upgrading from a Cat. 4 to Cat. 3 or 2?
You need to train to reach cycling and running goals!
Regardless of your sport, your ability levels, your experience, or your physical condition, all endurance athletes need the same things:
- increase aerobic endurance capacity
- increase joint and muscle strength to improve performance and prevent injury
- improve mobility in all movement directions for better health
I help you with all of these with my unique blend of endurance training, periodized strength training that utilizes what you have available, and frequent yoga that develops better joint range of motion.
I met Paul several years ago when he led a cyclocross clinic that I attended. His passion for teaching/coaching athletes was evident even then. After he started his coaching/personal training business in 2019, I threw my hat in the ring to be part of his “adventure crew” in 2021 and was ecstatic to be chosen! The pandemic was a crusher for me mentally, so “adventure” was not in the cards. Paul shifted our focus to handle what I could while working to build my aerobic base from basically nothing leading into the offseason. I have been well supported and well guided in the process of starting to regain my cycling fitness, learning a lot from Paul about things like Heart Rate Variability to help me train/recover more effectively. I highly recommend Paul as a coach/guide!
