A brief Bio on Coach Rob

I started racing BMX bikes as a kid on neighborhood tracks and graduated to my first road bike in middle school. In High School I joined a cycling club where I fell in love with riding distance for fun. Taking a break from riding I turned to Rock Climbing in college where I traveled to rock climbing destinations in the Mid Western, Southern and Western USA. After a brake from all things sports to start a family and focus on a technology career I found myself with two fantastic children a loving wife and 40 lbs. of excess flab! I made a point to get into shape quick.

I thought I was going to go into bodybuilding as a sport. Yes I am a self-proclaimed gym rat. While spending time in the gym running, lifting weights and stretching, boredom crept in and I decided to hop on a spin bike to break up the monotony. Three weeks later I broke out my old Road Bike and started riding again. It was like seeing cycling with a new set of eyes. At first I rode for fun but quickly recognized I needed goals and with goals came the desire to train to meet those goals.

I grabbed all the training books I could get my hands on and read what feels like 100s of web sites on the topic of cycling. I then selected charity rides then a ride across Kentucky as my early goals. After finishing 3rd in the 3-day ride across my home state of KY I started to think that I was fast enough to race. A year later I entered my first race as an unattached citizen in a Road Race. Then after a season of riding and racing unattached I co-founded a local cycling team.

After racing for a few years I began to chronicle my knowledge on racing and training topics at a site known as The Coached Cyclist. I did this at first to get everything out of my head so I could quit thinking so much about training and actually train. Funny thing happened cyclists started to read my articles and ask for more articles on more cycling topics. Then I was asked if I could help a few cyclists with their training and I said yes.

Almost a year later I find myself being called Coach Rob and I love it.

If you came across this site and don’t feel your ready for a coach I completely understand. Hiring a coach can seem like costly and even daunting enterprise, I know. If you are on the fence about hiring a coach or don’t think you can afford it give me a call and let see if we can work something out.
