2013 "Winter Build" is Now!!

We are coming into the final weeks of a very successful "Efficiency and Technique" Coaching Program and are looking forward to the 2013 "Winter Build"!  There is still some hard work to do before we enjoy a two week holiday break and recovery.  

 DO NOT PANIC - if the weather does not cooperate during the break you can look for a random class or two. We have some great new Erg Videos to play with. 

It's hard to believe this is our 5th season at Speed Shop.  In 2008 there were only 4 classes, no online registration and plenty of room in most of the classes.  We are heading into 2013 more than doubling the number of classes and they have been filling up fast.  Everyone has been very supportive as we have navigated through the growing pains.  We move forward keeping our primary goal first and foremost to quality training where beginners can learn and the elite athlete can thrive.
Last winter we had a 48 hr pre-registration for riders in the Fall Session to sign up for the same spot in the Winter Session before opening registration to everyone. This turned out to be a much bigger challenge than anticipated so will be opening up registration to everyone at the same time for this Winter Session.

Coaches Corner:  
Coach Ray

Coach Ray Trentini is back this season offering up his expertise on and off the bike!   Coach Ray provides a top notch workout using his knowledge and experience as a rider and racer.  He understands the concept of training with power and how to help each rider get the most out of their Speed Shop workout regardless of experience level.  In addition to his skill on the bike, Coach Ray's software engineer prowess off the bike helps keep everyone on their bike!

Coach Vicki

The Speed Shop is also excited to welcome back Coach Vicki Bate!  Coach Vicki has been training at the Speed Shop from the first season where she helped lead a group of local triathletes in a rather intense three hour Sunday morning class. Coach Vicki knows first hand the benefits of Speed Shop training.  She is a five time Ironman and has participated internationally for Team USA in the Long Course. In addition to participating in 6 - 8 triathlons a year Coach Vicki is a certified trainer and currently the race director for the very successful  Turkey Trot. She will be leading the Early Bird Tuesday and the Saturday 6am Class.

We will miss Coach Corey. He graduated college this spring and has taken a full time job in York, PA.  We wish him well and hope he can jump in a class once in a while.
