May 5 – 11, 2014 – Happy Mother’s Day!

 On Sunday it is going to be Mother’s Day. 

Mother’s Day is the day we celebrate our mothers, all they do for us and all they mean to us. It is an opportunity to give thanks to mom for being mom. An annual holiday, Mother’s Day is celebrated across the world, letting children everywhere say thank you for all the laundry, meals, after school activities, dental work and love a mother provides.

Even tho sometimes we feel that our Mother’s don’t know what they are talking about…. sorry to be the bearer of bad news… but THEY DO and THEY ARE ALWAYS RIGHT! They were our age once and if we thought that we could get away with things… they know it.

Take this day and celebrate with your mom. Appreciate her for everything she does for you. Love you MOM!

What are the benefits of a proper bike fit?

A proper bike fit is essential for injury prevention and maximized efficiency.  An optimal position on the bike will allow for greater comfort and enjoyment while riding.  All bodies are different and your position on the bike should reflect your biomechanics.

Who can benefit from a bike fit? 

Generally, if you are serious enough to clip into a bike, you will benefit from a bike fit.  Whether you are a professional or recreational rider, getting the proper bike fit is an effective yet economical way to improve performance.

 

How long does a Bike fitting take? 

An average fit with fitting lasts 90 minutes.  However, if you have major adjustments or component changes, the fit may be longer.

Anxiety in the Swim!

 

Walking into a swim start, I have seen countless faces of fear on peoples faces, to the point that their goggles start filling up with tears and they start shaking. Suddenly the gun goes off and they are in the water. The start gasping for air and start doing breaststroke during the entire swim.

How to over come this common fear? Countless of times I have take athletes through worst circumstances during training so when race day arrives, there shouldn’t be any doubt on their performance.
