Premium Coaching

Mountain Bike Race Training Plans and CoachingAccelerate your bicycle training and racing learning curve and maximize your results with our highest level of personalized, one-on-one coaching. Our Premium Coaching service delivers daily training analysis, feedback and recommendations on how to improve your performance. By working with you on a daily basis, our coach is able to rapidly develop a level of understanding, trust and commitment with you that will quickly and decisively translate into driving your performance to levels that you simply cannot achieve in the same amount of time on your own.

You’ve heard that the devil is in the details. Well that’s especially true when it comes to identifying and resolving those last few critical components of your training and racing regimen that can make the difference between average results and podium finishes. The daily interaction you receive with our Premium  Coaching service allows us to explore every facet of your preparation and then make crucial adjustments to ensure you achieve superior results.

You can also add a Nutrition Coach to the Premium Coaching service.

One of the most overlooked aspects of training and racing is proper nutrition. Poor nutrition habits can quickly derail your goals. Even if you think you eat well, you’re likely missing key nutrients that will help you improve your power, endurance and recovery. One of the best ways improve performance is to improve your strength-to-weight ratio. You can do this fairly quickly by attaining your goal weight while maintaining or improving your strength. Premium Coaching and Nutrition Coaching can help you achieve this result. With the purchase of Nutrition Coaching, you’ll work one-on-one with Kelli Jennings, Registered Dietitian, Sports Nutrition Expert, and avid Endurance Mountain Biker. Interaction with Kelli is twice per week.

I signed up with Curt to help me tackle the Breck-Epic. He is a coach that has walked the talk and done this race, and has great feedback. That was important to me when choosing a coach and plan. I was thoroughly impressed with his base and build programs offered, finding them very informative and extremely critical to completing the race. I subscribed to his personal coaching services the last six weeks before the event and he was always willing to answer, explain and guide my training progress. He assessed my progress and was helpful with any necessary changes due to scheduling, fatigue or the race in general. His plans I found very balanced for a working father with a family of five. The plans have a nice harmony of rest and training through-out. Curt guided me with on-bike nutrition which was a game changer as I had not focused in on that in the past so much. His guidance and helpful demeanor allowed me to recover faster and train harder. Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with how my fitness progresed and feedback I received as I trained for the race and ultimately finished the biggest race of my life. Thank you!

I have been working with MTBCoach for several years to train and prepare for many races, in-season and off-season. I have consistently gotten faster and have completed many NUE races as well several tough stage races, always finishing each better than the last. The scheduling is flexible and since my training time is limited I can ensure that my time on the the bike is spent in the most efficient manner possible. Curt is always quick to answer questions, make adjustments, provide feedback and motivation. Highly recommended for athletes of any level!

I only trained for a short while with Coach Ben but the entire MTB coach set up is very professional. I am a working mum of four and I needed a coaching schedule that I could squeeze in and a coach who understood that I needed to be able to flex. I got just that. Clear instructions, encouragement plus good results! I definitely recommend them.

I worked with Ben for the 10 months leading up to my first 70.3. Through Ben’s coaching I successfully completed the race and stayed focused and injury-free for the duration of my training. I would definitely recommend MTB Coach for anyone looking to meet and exceed racing goals!

I have been using MTB Coach for approximately 4 years now and I'm very satisfied with the progress I have made with my Mountain Biking goals and Triathlon as well.I live in Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean, and there really is no OFF season, we go from MTB races toTriathlon races month after month. My coach is great at advising me of the pros and cons of doing lots of lots events that range from 1 hour races to muti-day stage races, and I have evolved as an athlete and learned about the energy systems, methods of training and nutrition.I highly recommend investing in the knowledge and expertise of MTBCoach.
