In the midst of an unnecessarily long, cold, and snowy winter, I approached Shayne after having taken one of his P2 classes. Having structured workouts during the winter was just what I needed, and getting them from a friend and teammate was a real perk!
I came to Shayne and GCC with lots of enthusiasm and willingness to work, but without knowing how to take my riding to the next level. I also had a bucket list goal: California’s “Death Ride”. Shayne did a great job of meeting me where I was, and crafting a training plan around my abilities, constraints, and preferences. Several (hard!) months later, I crushed the Death Ride and went on to several other challenging rides later in the season. After that, I even took up racing, something I’d never thought I’d do, and had a blast competing in our local cyclocross series. Throughout, Shayne provided great support and knowledge—with lots of humor to keep everything in perspective.
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.
I have been working with Shayne and the GC Coaching team for 2 years with great success. As someone who struggles with time constraints, Shayne has always been able to develop a plan that works within my schedule, but still provides the benefits that I look for in a good coach! I also appreciate that GC Coaching has continued to promote cycling as a sponsor of the Witches Cup to help grow the sport! There are a lot of coaching services out there, but very few who can talk the talk and walk the walk like GC Coaching has done.
Working with GC Coaching has enabled me to remain on a path of constant growth over several seasons. Shayne creates a platform for continuous improvement by incorporating feedback loops into each athlete’s program. He performs professional analysis of my workout data and combines this with information that he gathers from me. He has a deep understanding of my needs and continuously strives to help me reach my maximum potential. I highly recommend GC Coaching because they utilize quality coaching techniques with evidence-based data analysis.
