"This took my cycling to the next level." - Mustafa Cayci

After I started racing, I quickly realized I needed structure and well thought out training.

I've always watched Jeff's YouTube videos, but his program took my cycling to the next level.

Between his structured training, equipment recommendations, and ability to help me understand my physical advantages, I was able to achieve a goal of mine—I qualified to represent my state at the national level.

"What I was able to accomplish in just 6 months was outstanding."  - Logan McPherson

As someone new to the sport, it saved me so many headaches.

This did a great job teaching me, guiding me, and even solving problems before I knew I had them.

What I was able to accomplish in 6 months was outstanding and not something that people can accomplish by themselves, especially as a new or intermediate athlete.
