Welcome Associate Coach Erin Johnson

Coach Erin

I’m pleased to announce that we have added another coach to our fast growing coaching group. Coach Erin Johnson brings another perspective to training. As a mom she knows the demands of a busy schedule and how to balance training and racing to be successful.

I first meet Erin 3 years ago when she contacted us to coach her. Unfortunately we never started as she has  endured many health issues that kept her from lining up.  As a lifetime athlete, coaches have inspired her through out her life and since she hasn’t been able to train and race, she wanted to help others with her vast knowledge of endurance racing.

Erin Johnson is a USA cycling Level 2 certified coach and former professional level Ultra Distance Mountain Bike Racer currently living in Louisville, Colorado. She has completed more than a dozen 100-mile races including Leadville, Breckenridge (her favorite) and the Hundo. In addition, she landed on the podium five times. Erin comes from a strong endurance background competing in ultra running and adventure racing before finding her love for epic days on bike.

In 2009 Erin took some time off and was subsequently plagued by injuries and illness. Five years and eight surgeries later, she retired from racing. During this time she had to go from the hospital to six-hour training rides on several occasions. She understands what it feels like to be down and have to build yourself back up again and again…not just your body, but your mind too.

As a working mom Erin also understands the demands of family and life on an athlete. She specializes in maximizing a client’s time getting the most “bang for the buck”. She is passionate about training; racing and helping athletes reach their goals whether you race for the podium or just to finish in “good style”.
