Having a coach is one of the most valuable investments you can make in life. I can personally look back on some of my biggest breakthroughs on the trail, in my training and in my business and see the direct influence of a coach on them.
In my opinion, earning the title of coach is also one of the biggest compliments you can be paid.
Starting with my high school track coach, no one besides my parents have had a bigger role in shaping the person I am today than the coaches I’ve had the chance to work with.
A coach is so valuable because they’ve already achieved what you want to achieve and can show you the most direct path. They’ve often made a lot of mistakes along the way and know how to help you avoid them.
This both helps you avoid frustration and saves a lot of wasted time and energy.
A good coach also helps to balance out the tendencies that hold us back or lead to self-destruction. Some of us need a kick in the butt every once in while and some of us need to be told to dial it back a bit.
This makes having someone to tell you the right thing at the right time invaluable.
A coach has one job, which is to make sure that you become a better version of yourself. They’ve seen what is possible – both in their own lives and the people they’ve worked with before – and they know how to help you achieve it as well.
In my opinion, earning the title of coach is also one of the biggest compliments you can be paid. I’ve worked hard to earn that title with a lot of riders and take that position very seriously.
Some of my proudest moments have been celebrating victories with clients. From simply being able to ride pain free to standing on a World Cup podium, I’ve had the pleasure of helping riders achieve a huge range of riding goals.
And now I want to work directly with you to help you achieve your goals.
You see, while the programs and the Coaching Members website I’ve created get pretty close, nothing really compares to having me work personally with you as your coach.
For the past few years I’ve worked with a small number of riders through my exclusive Distance Coaching Program but this off-season I’ve decided to expand my roster and give more riders the chance to benefit from working directly with me.
Now, I’ll admit that the main reason I am doing this is a selfish one – I really enjoy working directly with riders and “geeking out” on their specific situation and the best combination of mobility, strength and cardio training to help them get the absolute most out of their workouts.
I know that it makes me weird but I really love the feeling of coming up with just the right workouts for someone at just the right time. Pulling all of my knowledge together and seeing it come together into something that will help a fellow rider enjoy riding even more is a rush and I want more of it.
And so I am creating a new Distance Coaching option that will allow me to make my high end coaching services available to anyone who is serious about their training program.
However, because my time and energy are limited I have to strictly limit these new Distance Coaching roster spots. I want to make sure I am able to deliver the best experience – and results – possible and I don’t want to take on more riders than I can do that for.
For that reason I started with only 10 new roster spots – but now there are only 2 spots left!
I opened up registration early for a select group of customers and within 24 hours I had already filled 8 spots out of the 10 spots, meaning that if you are at all interested in taking advantage of this new coaching service you’ll have to act fast.
I hope that this post has inspired you to look at the role of coaches and investment you make in them a bit differently. Even if you don’t invest in my coaching service I encourage you to look at the areas of you riding – and life – you’d most like to improve and then seek out someone who can help you achieve more than you could do by yourself.
Until next time…
