Justin has had a really positive impact on not only my physical development as a cyclist, however many other aspects of life. He has helped me to not purely focus on the physical training involved in cycling, however holistically address other areas such as positive mentality and self confidence. Justin is a very dedicated, super friendly and motivated person who has had experiences within many areas of the cycling world, including racing 5 years as a professional on the road. He deals with a high level of professionalism and has a broad level of knowledge related to coaching. I seek out to Justin for his assistance with all things related to my cycling development and feel like I would struggle to find anyone else who would do a better job at addressing my needs.
At the end of 2015 I was looking for an NRS team to make the next step up in the sport. Justin took me under as a mentor and later as a DS. He provided me with his extensive knowledge in racing as-well as a positive out look on cycling in general. Justin’s coaching business will ultimately provide athletes with improvements both on and off the bike.
Justin has always helped me focus on the positives on any given situation I’ve been involved in, and that the only way to approach them is to be the best version of myself - trying to be better at what I enjoy in the sport and in life, with in-depth knowledge to back up his advice.
To this day I carry myself that way wherever I go and I not only owe him for that, I encourage anyone to speak to Justin about breaking down your own personal barriers.
