I preface this by saying that I used to ride a lot. I used to have 'disposable' time and could ride almost at will and therefore stay in shape, almost without thinking about it. :thumbsup: The past few years my career and life haven taken up more and more time and riding just isn't as easy accessible as it used to be; the opportunities to ride and train are still there, albeit on a much more limited basis. That being said, I was thinking that some advice from a personal trainer or coach might be useful. Not so much in the sense that I want someone to coach me up on riding, but more someone who can lend some insight and structure into my somewhat limited schedule. I'm not even looking to race, just stay healthy and fit for riding and skiing.

Does anyone have any thoughts and or experience with a coach or personal trainer?

You can spend some serious coin on an endurance trainer or you can buy his book. :)

Thomas has taught me so much about general nutrition, endurance training and riding in general. What I really liked what that he built a training plan around my schedule. He didn't say 'you must ride XX hours each week' but rather asked 'how much time do you have/want to spend training' and then built my plan. I also like that my weight training work was specific to cycling.
