English Endurance Cycling Coach About Nate

I first got into endurance sports as a runner in high-school. I didn’t show any particular promise early on. But, I really enjoyed the practice of consistent training and the experience of seeing my body and mind change with training. As a result, I saw progress and eventually, huge results.

Over the years, I also got very interested in exercise physiology and nutrition, and learned how to train better. And have continued my learning by incorporating more psychology and understanding of the brain into my training and coaching work.

I started racing bikes soon after graduating from UC Berkeley in 2007. I knew that I had some promise, but did not yet know what level of performance I would be able to reach.

Over the first year from when I started racing, I had upgraded to Cat 1 and was looking to do progressively more challenging races and trying to learn how to train and race more effectively while working full time… After a few years of continued physical development and learning how to race better, I raced professionally. I’ve set many course records and Strava KOMs. I’ve been 5th at the US Pro TT. Top 5 and top 10 at national level events. Won dozens of P12 races. And, I’ve finished 14th in the Amgen Tour of CA.

Over the years, I’ve been so grateful to have been able to reach such a high level of performance and racing success. I’ve become more and more grateful for the opportunity this has afforded me to contribute to other athletes of all levels. I’ve been able to see my athletes through dozens of racing category upgrades, race wins, and PRs across all ranges of performance. I’ve coached a U23 MTB National Champion and people in their 50s and 60s to reach performances beyond what they’ve done 20 years prior.

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to be a successful athlete, a lot about training, recovery, nutrition, psychology, and also about life and how much sport and physical activity can enhance our experiences throughout our lives, both inside and out of sport. Whether my clients are world class athletes trying to win national championships, trying win races, or just trying to get the most out of a busy schedule as they balance work, family, and training, I enjoy working with my clients in an effort to help them achieve their goals and have a better life experience through their participation in sport. No matter your level, I know I can contribute to your experience as an athlete.
