Training With Power: A Dual Meaning
Training with power has a double meaning. On one hand, it means using a power meter to measure power and energy to maximize performance. On the other hand, training with power means just that -- training with focus, dedication, and most of all intent. Training powerfully to become more powerful. And you don't need a power meter to train with this kind of power. Coach Justin has an intimate understanding of what it takes to reach peak performance and, more importantly, how to share that knowledge with you. Training plans and workouts from Train With Power bridge the gap between mere physical exertion and a greater understanding of your body and how to push yourself hard enough to get better without going over the edge.
Invest Your Limited Time for Maximum Fitness
Build fitness with the amount of work needed to reach your goals, no more no less. When you ride, you will ride with purpose. We all lead busy lives, and as much as we enjoy riding, choosing to be fit in the context of daily demands from work, family and life in general means focusing the riding that you do on the most essential elements. Drilled down to its core, cycling involves a few core energy systems. The key is how to target them to maximize training benefit. So what’s the take home? Don’t waste your time. There are opportunity costs for everything we do.
By choosing to take the step into coaching, you are prioritizing fitness and performance. Under Coach Justin’s direction, you will be able to spend the minimum amount of time to make the maximum progress. Want to set the Strava record on your local climb? Want to make the leap to racing? Want to upgrade to the next level? Train With Power Coaching has the expertise to help you reach those goals.
Coaching with a Personal Touch
Coach Justin doesn't believe in cookie-cutter training plans. Training is an iterative process, and each athlete is unique in her what her body demands and how her body responds to training. Thus Train With Power Coaching is set up to give you the kind of personal attention and feedback needed to maximize the fitness return on your training investment.
Coach Justin is even available on a case-by-case basis to ride with you and offer one-on-one coaching to help you work towards your goals, learn how your body works and discover the type of training that is best for you.
