A BIT ABOUT ME AND WHAT I OFFER

I’m certified as a personal trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and am a USA Cycling licensed Level 3 coach. As a cyclist, I enjoy road, gravel, and mountain biking. I've successfully completed numerous long-distance, 1- and 2-day events on the bike, plus a marathon, half-marathons, and other running events. I got into personal training because I really enjoy working with people to help them improve themselves. As an Air Force veteran, I 'speak' the fitness test language and can help you overcome obstacles there, too.

Client Profile:

Age: 62

Home: Virginia

Primary Sports: Cycling (Road & Mountain Biking)

Target "A Races": Leadville 100 MTB, Dirty Kanza 200, and a few century road races


Testimonial:

I started working with Bruce in early 2020 to prepare for the Leadville 100 MTB race. Bruce translated my 2020 goals and objectives into a training plan that adapted to the fallout of Covid-19. Although Leadville was ultimately cancelled, another 100 mile MTB race was scheduled for August 15th and I stayed with Bruce's Leadville training plan. Using a combination of indoor training with a Wahoo Kicker & Zwift, weight training, and road & trail riding, Bruce built a comprehensive plan that increased my FTP by 15 watts over six months. That training culminated in a race where I exceeded my target intensity factor by 4 points and normalized power by 8 watts. In short, Bruce's training plan got me to where I wanted to be and I can't wait to start training with him for the 2021 season!

COACHING PACKAGE OPTIONS

Choose the Level that Works for You!

BASIC COACHING PACKAGE

12-week program

You're strongly self-motivated, you have an idea of what you want to accomplish, but you need a plan to get there! This option begins with a 2-hour phone/video consult to talk about where you are and where you want to go. I'll build your plan and email it to you within a week. You may initiate program clarifications via email to me, and I'll respond within 72 hours (usually much sooner). At the end of the 12-week program, we'll have a 1-hour phone/video consult. Your plan will not change during the 12 weeks. All this is yours for a $100 1-time payment.

BRONZE COACHING PACKAGE

You're motivated to make a change in your exercise habits, but a little along-the-way conversation will make all the difference in your success.

I'll then build an annual plan to help you get there, and you'll access it on your included TrainingPeaks Premium account.

We'll check-in via phone/video at the beginning and midpoint of each month, for 30 minutes each time. After each check-in, I'll update your plan to account for "life happening" and training progress.
