Unlock Your Full Cycling Performance Potential with Expert Training from a Leading Cycling Coach. Get the Coaching, Training, and Virtual Squad Training You Need to Succeed…


Isn’t It Time You Took Your Cycling to the Next Level? 

There’s nothing in the world that can beat a great cycling session.

The rush of the wind through your hair…

The satisfaction you get beating a particularly challenging hill climb…

The exhilaration of exploring the world at your own pace, closer to nature, and through your own power…

The sense of constant progress as you improve your techniques and your times…

…And, if you race, the joy of speeding past and winning against tough competition.

There are always new personal records to break and new performance levels to hit, making the pain of pushing ourselves to a limit worth it…

…As we get the pleasure of knowing that yes, we can do it…

…And that we can push ourselves to achieve even more with the right performance training. 

However, there’s a small problem for those of us living in the real world: the dreaded time crunch.

Let’s face it, adulthood comes with a lot of responsibilities, and all of them demand your time. Some of you may even use cycling as an escape from the real world!

Whether you’re commuting to work and back or pursuing a professional cycling career, training can help you to take your cycling to the next level and hit your cycling goals.

What you need is a structured yet flexible framework with an experienced coach that works with the time you’ve got (and not the time you wish you had).

A program that helps you to increase your FTP.

A program that gives you a real and measured sense of progress with every passing week.

An affordable program that is designed to help you maximize your time training for the best results without breaking the bank.

A program from one of the leading cycling coaches in the United States so that you’re getting access to top-tier expertise. 

Congrats, You Just Found That Program.

GC Squad is designed for anyone looking to improve, from time-crunched athletes to people who enjoy cycling.

It’s a course designed for everyone, with the only exception being those who seek the highly personalized attention and customized programs of a dedicated 1-on-1 coach. 

Why Shayne Gaffney Is the Right Coach for You

My name is Shayne Gaffney, and I’m the founder of GC Coaching. You may already be familiar with me from Zwift, where I’m a Workout Content Editor.

In fact, if you use Zwift, you may already have enjoyed some of my other training plans and workouts, which have been downloaded thousands of times! 

I’m also a Level 1 certified coach and certified Power-Based Training coach at USA Cycling, not to mention a US Military Endurance Sports (USMES) affiliated coach. On top of all that, I’m also a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach.

I’ve created GC Squad as an affordable alternative to 1-on-1 training. The only thing that’s missing is the highly personalized attention in favor of a more squad-based approach to training.

In other words, you’re getting everything that I know in a structured program that will help you to take your cycling to the next level – whatever that means to you and no matter where you are in the world.

Is GC Squad the Right Choice for You as a Cyclist?

GC Squad is designed for anyone looking to improve, from time-crunched athletes to people who enjoy cycling.

It’s a course designed for everyone, with the only exception being those who seek the highly personalized attention and customized programs of a dedicated 1-on-1 coach. 

If that’s you, then sorry: this course isn’t for you.


(Sorry about that – but you may just want to check out this program instead).

For everyone else prepared to sacrifice the idea of 1-on-1 training for affordable and effective training based on the squad model, read on…

…Because this is unlike any other training you’ve seen.

It’s a program designed to help develop your fitness and take your cycling to the next level based on your goals, whether that means maximizing cycling’s many health benefits, optimizing your performance, or something else.

Whatever your personal or professional goals when it comes to cycling, you need structure to attain them.

A structure that optimizes the time you dedicate to your training time while removing a lot of the guesswork.

A structure that gives you a solid framework that shows you how to go from A to B.


This training program is also designed for around today’s busy modern lifestyle. In other words, it’s flexible.

Follow along at your own pace and progress at your speed. When life gets in the way, you can dial your training back without worry…

…And when you have more time to focus on your cycling goals, you can hop right back in.

Finally, I’ve made this program an affordable alternative to getting 1-on-1 training.

While you won’t get personalized support, you will be able to talk to me – and other knowledgeable community members in GC Squad’s members-only Discord group.

About GC Squad

In a nutshell, GC Squad provides a full training program designed for people looking to take their cycling performance to the next level with expert coaching – without the expense of 1-on-1 training.

I’ve designed this course to cut through the white noise, giving you the information that you need to build on your athletic performance.

Together with a carefully crafted and structured program that can fit into even the busiest of lifestyles, GC Squad is designed to keep you on track to achieve your goals:


for a powerful, progress-based program that is based on the latest in sports theory and practice to give you a new edge when riding


for the time-crunched cyclist so you can make the most of the time you’ve got and train effectively with the limited time that you have


through a vibrant and supportive community of like-minded people in a private, members-only Discord group; you’re not alone in your goals


from a leading Zwift coach with extensive experience and certification – get the benefit of working with a top coach


so you know which areas you need to work on. Even if this isn’t 1-on-1, you’re part of a squad – and you’ll get the attention you deserve

As an online training program, everything you need to follow the plan is delivered from one place: a members-only website that you can access from a computer or any of your connected smart devices.

All of this is included in a simple, flat-rate monthly subscription of just $99 a month – less than the cost of your Starbucks coffee !

This subscription model also offers you plenty of flexibility and makes GC Squad affordable; rather than spend a large lump sum upfront, you can slot this easily into your monthly budget.

(After all, that Starbucks coffee habit probably isn’t your best one!) 

Whether you’re looking to improve your daily commute by improving your fitness and performance or an athlete seeking to take your racing times to the next level, GC Squad is an investment that will help you to realize your most ambitious cycling goals.

This may need to be adapted; it depends on the price and whether a daily coffee is an appropriate equivalent! The point of this comparison is to show how affordable it is by contrasting it with something that most people might buy everyday that offers no real advantage in long-term gain (the coffee, after all, is consumed and enjoyed on the spot with no further benefit, while your program works to improve fitness etc)

May need adapting if the coffee angle in prior paragraph doesn’t work. This is just a little joke, though – can easily be deleted without affecting the flow, or altered if the replacement to coffee is something that is equally ‘frivolous’ in terms of expenditure/actual gain

Just One Little Word of Warning…

Imagine for a moment that it’s a year from today.

How is your cycling going?

Will you still be stuck at the same level as you are today, struggling through trial and error as you try to figure out what to do? Worse, watching other cyclists improve as your performance refuses to budge?

Or, will you be enjoying some of the best cycling of your life as your body responds to an effective, structured training program that makes it easier for you to start hitting the performance you dream of today?

Remember, with GC Squad, all the hard work of research and development is already done. There’s no research for you to do: just follow a program that has been designed for effective performance training, no matter how little time life reluctantly gives to you.

I can promise you one thing right now…

Time moves fast, and one year can pass by in what feels like the blink of an eye! All you need to do today is make a straightforward decision.
