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.
