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.
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 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.
After a few years of riding, having a lot of fun and with fair progress on my own, I came to a point where I continued to struggle to make it to the next level. I have 3 small boys and I travel roughly 40% of the time, so finding the time to do enough training has been a challenge.
I met Shayne a few years ago at a PMC event and had found later he had become a cycling coach. Not so early this season a shared email led me back to Shayne, so I reached out to him for some help, letting him know of my challenging schedule. He was able to put together a plan for my limited time and travel schedule that really challenged me physically and brought me into racing season in great shape. I feel so much stronger than I did a year ago. Looking forward to the rest of this season.
Thank you Shayne.
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.
