Coaching for Cycling

Coaching is a relationship that revolves around communication and trust. When it comes to choosing a personal coach we understand that it’s a process and athletes have options. The Métier coaching group offers clients a very distinct level of experience. We use practical knowledge, sound training principles, and the most up to date science to empower you to achieve your best possible fitness and results.

Métier coaches consult with and train athletes at every level in the sport of cycling and triathlon and we believe that sports performance is all about the details.

Athletes are constantly dealing with a long list of competing demands. We understand the demands and the details associated with them because we were professional athletes before we became professional coaches. And now our focus has turned to using our experiences and backgrounds to help our clients become the best they can be. Our athletes are competing at the local, national and international level. Some train 6–10 hours a week and have families and high stress jobs while others live the life of a full time professional where training and racing IS their job. Our job is to help them manage the details regardless of what level they perform at.

If you’re serious about improving your performance – regardless of your experience or the event(s) you’re preparing for- come and meet with us at Métier, We’ll give you a tour our facility and talk to you about the different coaching options we offer. If you live out of town that’s not a problem. We have athletes all across the country- just call us at 206 816 3436 and we’ll set up a Skype session and get a plan in motion.
