I bought my first heart rate monitor in high school.  The ability to view HR in real time then later analyze the data blew my mind.  I was hooked.  As I went through college then graduate school, exercise technology continued to improve.

HR, GPS, then finally power.  It all became more accurate, mobile, and affordable.  Technology previously housed in exercise physiology labs was available to athletes training in the real world.  This reality was thrilling.

In 2010 I started my cycling coaching company Data Driven Athlete, based on these principles.

  1.  An understanding of Exercise Science empowers a coach to make better training decisions.  Period.
  2.  Athletes get better when they use data to guide training decisions on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis.  Training with data is better.  Period.

As my coaching business has grown these are still my guiding principles.  Science and Data.  They go hand in hand to give cyclists the best chance to achieve their goals on the bike.
