Don't forget to attend the Endurance Sports Expo this weekend, February 26-27, at the Philadelphia Expo Center, Oaks PA. (That's AFTER you get your morning training ride in.) I'll be there at noon on Saturday. If you see me, stop by and say hi. I'm usually walking around the exhibitors. I'll be attending the seminar at 2pm w/ Dr. Michael Ross. Dr. Ross ALWAYS gives good training/workout advice. Dr. Ross is one of my mentors along with Dr. Andy Coggan. Both know what they're talking about re: Exercise Physiology- especially as it pertains to performance cycling/running/etc.

Welcome to my Coaching Blog. I'm a USA Cycling Level 2 Power Based Coach. I was the first USA Cycling Power Based Cycling Coach in the State of Pennsylvania. To become a Power Based Coach you have to pass a pretty comprehensive exam by USA Cycling http://www.usacycling.org/ on the use of Power Meters for Cycling Coaching. I also think you must become a Level 2 Coach before you're able to take the exam. I've been training and coaching with Power for over 10 yrs. now.
Although I don't actively coach right now, I do give FREE advice to athletes looking to set up a training program for the first time or to seasoned athletes looking to 'break-through' to a higher level of racing/training. I've coached just about every type of athlete in the past, from young world class triathletes in their 20s, competitive cyclists in their 30s and 40s to older athletes in their 50s (like me) looking to just get back in shape. I've even coached older cyclists in their 60s looking to get stronger on their group rides with friends. So, feel free to email me any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Power ON! Coach Rob
