About The Author

The Endurance Lab

The Endurance Lab is a group coaching program for cyclists and triathletes of all levels and abilities. Participants have direct access to certified coaches specializing in training and nutrition, and the opportunity to interact with our community of athletes through a private forum. We use online platforms such as Training Peaks, TrainerRoad, and Zwift. Participants may choose to use any platform and/or perform the workouts outdoors by using a power meter and bike computer (e.g., Garmin, Wahoo). Train at a time that is convenient for you!
