TESTIMONIALS

I feel you did a great job of getting me into form for Edmonton and appreciate your input very much.”

Bob Thompson, Master Racer

"I appreciate all the time and effort you put into advising me. Your support of both the physical and mental aspects of training have been a great asset to me on and off the race course. There are so many difficult times in any athletic dream that it is nice to have a coach that supports you through it all."

Amber Chorney, Pro Mountain Biker Team Gary Fisher-Saab

“Your training plan is excellent – thanks very much Steve. I am riding much better in the crits, and can stay in the middle of the pack comfortably. At the start of the season, I never expected to be able to finish the crits even.
Thanks again for all of your help. It has really made a difference.”

Mike Cooper, Master Racer

“Steve,

 As I do a little reflecting while preparing Kirsten to head off to World Championships, I can't help but think of what a profound effect you have had on her performance over the past few months. People always used to say "wait until she learns to cycle", or "wait until she develops some strength to ride the bike" etc. Well ever since you set her up she has become so strong on the bike, that now everyone talks about how she is able to control a race with her strength on the bike. Steve within days of your session, she rode away from a very strong pack in Edmonton, and has done that repeatedly against some very strong American triathletes. At the U.S. Nationals they had a 1.5km hill "Alabama Hill" which was an awesome climb. The women started 2 minutes back of the men, by lap 2 Kirsten was already biking past men on the U.S. National team!!

I just wanted to ensure you were aware of the difference you have made, and thank you so much for your expertise.............!!!!”
