Get A Training Plan


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!!!

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.

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.

This year I decided to do something I had never done before, to ride the B2VT ride. I had never ridden 134 miles with 8000 feet of climbing before. I was not sure I had any business even considering this challenge being an average rider at best. I signed up with coach Gaffney who developed a structured training plan for me. I am happy to report that Shayne’s workouts were just what I needed. My goal was to finish the ride and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I felt great and my time was better than I expected it to be.  I highly recommend Shayne Gaffney who is both  accessible and supportive . At 61 years old I generally feel better riding and climbing is much easier.  I plan to sign up for more training soon. I hope  this review helps anyone interested in accomplishing their goals however great or small.

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!

My request for Coach Gaffney was unique to any cyclist in the New England area. I wanted help getting my Category 3 track upgrade. I had gotten my Category 4 upgrade at the Northeast Velodrome during the last year it was operational and got bitten by the track bug hard. After that track closed down, the next nearest was Kissena Velodrome in Queens, NY. I found it was possible to make it there and back in a day and set about racing as often as I could. In 2014, I was self-coached and fought very hard for my upgrade but I was always just shy of getting the necessary points.
I began working with Shayne early on in 2015. Every workout he prescribed was track specific, and my abilities improved thusly; far more quickly than had I been on my own. By the last weekly race of the season, I easily garnered the remaining points to get my upgrade!
Without Shayne’s insight and training plans, I can honestly say I wouldn’t have gotten my upgrade. And as a plus, he stresses being easy to communicate with often answering random questions whenever I had them. Already Shayne is working on my 2016 season, with my sights set on both Track Nationals and a Category 2 upgrade!
