Where would I be without Valerie. I have been training with Valerie in both Cycling and Strength for the past year. My all-round fitness is grown in leaps and bounds….. or should I say lunges and intervals. I am stronger today than I was in my 20’s. (and I am a lot older than that now!) Valerie is always positive and encouraging. There is never a “weakness” but an opportunity to work on the “limiter”. She is excellent at describing each exercise and explaining what muscles are worked. Valerie is as excited as I am, if not more, when she sees my progress. All I can say is THANK YOU Valerie for being the best coach/trainer a person could ask for.
I started working with Val about a year ago. Prior to that, I had been struggling to regain lost fitness as a result of several knee injuries and surgeries. Not for a lack of trying, but I wasn’t seeing the kind of results I was expecting even 2+ years later. After working with Val, I am finally getting back to my pre-surgery levels, and have even surpassed “2017 Kim” on several metrics, including sprints. (I never thought I had a sprint before working with Val!) She is incredibly positive, encouraging and responsive. I know that when I have a breakthrough session, she is going to be just as, if not more excited than I am! And when I don’t have a great workout, she’s always there to point out the positive and provide some insights and motivation to kill it next time. Couldn’t ask for a better coach!
Since working with Val my fitness and speed have increased tremendously. In just three months on the FTP building plan, my FTP increased by over 20 watts! The numbers don’t lie! My bike handling on technical terrain has improved with Val’s strength training plans. Certain spots on my route where I have either wiped out or had to carry my bike are now a piece of cake!
