coaching for cyclists and runners

Coaching for cyclists and runners improves your performance by becoming more resilient and durable athletes through endurance training, strength training, and yoga.

And as runners and cyclists, we all need to improve the same things: 

  • increase endurance and speed,
  • increase joint and muscle strength,
  • improve mobility.
We met Paul right before the pandemic while focusing on strength training for runners and biking. Then we moved on to personal training – he always comes up with couples exercises that get us laughing (extra core work!). I stay balanced and flexible with Paul’s yoga sessions. I plan to increase my biking and running event distances and I know Paul will help keep it fun while pushing me.

Simple Endurance Coaching for cyclists and runners

With Simple Endurance Coaching, I offer training plans, support, and motivation with coaching for cyclists and runners who want to find new adventures and train to accomplish them.

My coaching is equal parts cheerleader, trainer, teacher, comedian, and guide.

The people I support simply want to improve on yesterday: get faster, get stronger, lose some weight, be a different version of themselves.

Coaching plans for cyclists and runners

In the Full-Custom plan, I’ll create a full custom and comprehensive program of endurance training, functional strength training, movement through yoga, mental toughness training, and nutritional advice. You also get a pro version of Training Peaks.

The Semi-Custom program is for people who need minimal direction and just a plan to know what to do with endurance training, strength training, and yoga. I include videos for yoga instruction with Virtual Coffees and monthly communication.

Coaching for cyclists

At Simple Endurance Coaching, I coach riders who want to do centuries, bike pack, race cyclocross, race on the road, or do bucket list rides like the Stelvio climb.

And I’ll support you at every step in your journey as a cyclist.

I’ve been riding bikes for fun, recreation, competition, and mental health for over four decades. 

Along the way, I’ve tried all the new training techniques, nutrition, supplements, read as much as I could and asked as many questions of smart people as I could. 

And I coaxed as much success out of my body as I could with severe asthma. 

Along the way, I learned a lot.

And that is exactly what I bring you as a coach.

Coaching for runners

You want to do a 10k with a friend or in a charity event, or maybe break 30 minutes in a 5k race, or improve your half-marathon times.

You need a coach who understands your goals, your needs, and your past, someone who will push at the right times, and understand why you need to back off at others.

I’ve been running for decades and understand the need for exercise, to improve, and to hit my goal times.

I support runners who want to increase distance, improve their times, or do some challenging event.

Coaching for triathletes

I help you do your first or fiftieth triathlon. 

If you want to try your first Sprint or improve your half-Ironman time, we’ll build a program that meets your needs.

Training for a triathlon, regardless of the distance, is a challenge. 

You have to juggle the demands of training for running, cycling, and swimming. 

Plus you need to continue to strength train and do yoga to build mobility and stability in your body. 

Training plans for cyclists and runners

If you’re not ready for a custom or semi-custom coaching plan, you can purchase monthly or event training plans that I build for you.

I’ve created plans for runners, cyclists, marathoners, Tough Mudder participants, and triathletes.

Training plans for everyday athletes are designed as a road map for success in your target event. 

We can create targeted plans for your event or you can purchase pre-made plans.

Training plans are a good way to get you started since some structure and consistency are better than none. 

Training to find your challenge

Our training philosophy is Simple. For any endurance sport, we blend five essential elements:

  • lots of long and slow training,
  • intervals to improve fitness and speed.
  • strength training
  • yoga,
  • rest and recovery

The art of coaching is to combine those in the most effective, efficient, and fun way possible. 

Want to know more about what you can achieve with good coaching? 

My purpose with Simple Endurance Coaching is to help everyday endurance athletes achieve their goals with more strength, endurance, and mobility.
