I would highly recommend Shayne and the rest of GC Coaching to any level of cyclist looking to improve. At GC Coaching they utilize Training Peaks to keep your calendar, upload workouts and comment on your workouts. Because of their dedication to this product I believe this makes their services excel. Getting feedback on a workout or race soon after uploading is refreshing in the world of endurance coaching. Their willingness to use ZWIFT for training also sets them apart and helps keep you on track. You can not go wrong with GC Coaching.
Excellent coach. Approachable and responsive. Best of all my power has rebounded post collarbone/shoulder blade surgery and I’m riding better than I ever have. Shayne will give credit when credit is due and also be straight forward when he knows there is improvement to be gained.
I can’t say enough about this program with GC coaching. I’ve trained with Shayne before but failed due to time constraints. But his virtual training program solves that issue. And I already feel stronger. The numbers auto set to your FTP, so the sessions are just hard enough to finish with a great sense of accomplishment. And as the weeks are progressing, I am feeling a lot stronger and more confident about my abilities. I’m not a pro, so I can’t tell you that the training is structured for a specific gains. I can say he has his certifications and I’ve dealt with him personally and he sounds very impressive. I can say that so far, it feels perfect. I struggle, but finish. I’m appreciate the rest days. I feel stronger and can see the physical changes. So he must know something. We can all find snip-its of training here and there. But a full, day by day, personally formatted exercise program, that progresses appropriately, for a crazy low cost. Why would you not do it.
And I know I will be crushing the group rides this summer!!!
I started training on my own to a point that was not improving my performance until I started to train with GC Coaching. It is difficult to believe how a specific training makes a lot of difference. It has been accompanied by all the steps in these months of racing season and I have been getting better and better. I will definitely be with them in 2018 next season.
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.
