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.
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!
-The A group, the fast ones on the Saturday ride.
-A sub 5 hour century.
These were my goals and they had eluded me for years because, I now see, I didn’t really have a plan for achieving them. I began working with Coach Shayne Gaffney in January of 2015 through his Pure Power (P2) classes looking to finally crack them. I came away from the P2 class seeing a remarkable increase in both my power and confidence. Recognizing the clear benefits structured training had for me, I asked Coach Shayne to coach me through the rest of the 2015 season and I began to consider racing. Having never raced before I was incredibly nervous. But working with Coach Shayne only continued to improve those two facets and as I approached the first race of the season at Mt. Blue, I knew I was ready. Through the season as my confidence and ability grew, each race became more fun than the last.
Thanks to Coach Shayne being so generous with his time and knowledge, I achieved my original goals, grew to set new ones and achieved those as well. There is only one way to say this and that is that 2015 was the most fun I’ve ever had on a bike.
