After a few years of riding, having a lot of fun and with fair progress on my own, I came to a point where I continued to struggle to make it to the next level. I have 3 small boys and I travel roughly 40% of the time, so finding the time to do enough training has been a challenge.
I met Shayne a few years ago at a PMC event and had found later he had become a cycling coach. Not so early this season a shared email led me back to Shayne, so I reached out to him for some help, letting him know of my challenging schedule. He was able to put together a plan for my limited time and travel schedule that really challenged me physically and brought me into racing season in great shape. I feel so much stronger than I did a year ago. Looking forward to the rest of this season.
Thank you Shayne.
For several years I have had the desire to complete a multi day long distance ride. I have always felt that my interests were more towards endurance riding than racing. After some health setbacks in the last couple of years, the stars finally aligned and I picked a ride. This ride was no small goal for me, it included about 400 miles and almost 30,000 feet of climbing at altitude over 6 days.
I talked with Coach Shayne about helping me prepare for this event. He had some great ideas and so we worked together to get prepared for the big week. My goal was to not just finish, but finish strong.
Coach Shayne’s workout plans, encouragement, and an appropriate amount of pushing was instrumental in my completion of the ride. He tailored the workouts to meet my schedule and he was always available to provide advice and the encouragement that is needed when things seem to not be going well. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, especially, someone that is just looking to get started or has a specific event in mind. I was very impressed with his knowledge and ability to help me meet my goals.
I started cycling 4 years ago with no real goals in mind, I just got on the bike and was hooked. The next year I began to take cycling a little more serious and even got into racing. Over the next couple of seasons I grew stronger, but still felt I was missing something. After riding with and getting to know Shayne more, I realized something was different in the way we both trained. We were both driven athletes, but he had structure, goals and a training plan that kept him improving ride after ride. These were all the things I wanted and knew I needed to progress as a cyclist. It was then I decided to start working with Shayne for the 2015 season. I began by taking his P2 indoor cycling class and advanced to one on one coaching. The structure I received was exactly what I needed. Knowing my training schedule weeks in advance is tremendously helpful. When life gets busy the fact that I can reach out to Shayne for changes (sometimes within hours) to my training schedule is key to my continuous success.
As a fitness professional myself, I believe a good leader/coach doesn’t lead by words but with actions. Seeing the commitment Shayne puts forth in his own training is a constant reminder to me as to what is needed and required to be successful in this sport.
-The A group, the fast ones on the Saturday ride.
-A sub 5 hour century.
These were my goals and they had eluded me for years because, I now see, I didn’t really have a plan for achieving them. I began working with Coach Shayne Gaffney in January of 2015 through his Pure Power (P2) classes looking to finally crack them. I came away from the P2 class seeing a remarkable increase in both my power and confidence. Recognizing the clear benefits structured training had for me, I asked Coach Shayne to coach me through the rest of the 2015 season and I began to consider racing. Having never raced before I was incredibly nervous. But working with Coach Shayne only continued to improve those two facets and as I approached the first race of the season at Mt. Blue, I knew I was ready. Through the season as my confidence and ability grew, each race became more fun than the last.
Thanks to Coach Shayne being so generous with his time and knowledge, I achieved my original goals, grew to set new ones and achieved those as well. There is only one way to say this and that is that 2015 was the most fun I’ve ever had on a bike.
