Motor Sports Fitness Coaching

If you take your motorcycle and auto racing seriously then you should also take your fitness training seriously too. Motor sports place a high demand on your endurance and strength and as you fatigue your technique and form can deteriorate. To stay out front you need the fastest equipment, greater skills, and a higher level of fitness than your competitors. This is true whether you're competing on a bicycle, motorcycle, or in a car.

As a graduate of auto and motorcycle racing schools, and a motor sports racing hobbyist, I understand the demands these events place on our body's strength and endurance systems. I can structure a training program that will help keep you lean, strong, and capable of going the distance.


Realize Your Potential | Coaching Programs with Coach Thomas

It is my personal goal to help athletes of all ages, experience, skill and talent levels to reach their full potential as both athlete and individual. I help them obtain greater satisfaction from life through the process of training their bodies and minds for athletic competition.

Since I started coaching full-time in 1997, I have helped athletes finish their first race or century, as well as helping athletes advance from local competition to placing at National and World Championships. Athletes I've coached have won their age group and placed as top amateur at The Ironman World Championships in Kona Hawaii, placed on the podium at the US Pro/Elite National Criterium Championships, and won 24 hour solo mountain bike races. Although I understand that often the goal is to win, I coach athletes in a manner that keeps their lives in balance and results in continuous improvements through consistency of training. I help them realize their potential by guiding them with training that is appropriate to their individual needs, and moves toward achieving both short and long term goals.

I offer a variety of programs. Everything from full-time (One On One) coaching to individual special sessions. For a review of each program click on the link below.
