I still can’t believe it … I’m a USA National Champion, but my coach Patrick at Pinnacle Coaching always did. This has been a two-year focus adding half a dozen state titles and the fastest time trial posted in all categories this year.
I’m a long-time cyclist; and although I’ve been successful, I have also been unpredictable. Pinnacle Coaching provided me with the structure, discipline, and realistic profile of my capabilities. With that structure came a new sense of awareness that has changed me in profound ways. It has transcended physically, psychologically and in a spiritual strength.
Having have had many coaches over the years, I feel a sense of gratitude in the professionalism and invested approach provided.
A good coach improves your ‘game.’ A great coach improves your life. Sign on with Patrick Sansbury, and you just might get more than you bargained for! He is a coach that believes in the abilities of his athletes, more than they do at times. His philosophy is to live in the process while helping us to attain our goals. The unforeseen bonus is that the process changes YOU for the better along the way.
With a forthright style coated in genuine affection for his athletes, Patrick is unparalleled in his knowledge of training with power. He is like a surgeon in the precision of the training plans he creates for your individual needs. My initial goals of understanding training with power, increasing my speed and power on the bike, and becoming a smarter racer were met and exceeded.
After being hit by a car in 2016 and being blessed to be alive, Patrick said you will come back even stronger. And this I did. A coach and athlete team is a powerful force. Trust the process. Do the work. If you have what it takes to be committed to a plan even when it sucks, then this man will get you where you want to go.
Think of what you would like to achieve, and he will provide the path to get you there.
I have worked with Patrick for almost 2 years. When we started together I was very new to sport and had no idea how to win a race. Patrick did not simply hand me workouts to do, he taught me the basis of his approach so I could fully embrace the process.
With his guidance, I reached the highest level of the sport in a matter of months, and excelled. Patrick’s passion for cycling, the confidence he has in his athletes, his race experience and his extensive knowledge in power training, makes him an exceptional coach and mentor.
You are very responsive & easy to communicate with … the TP calendar is always updated ahead of time which makes my planning that much easier (greatly appreciated!). It is obvious you really have a desire to see your clients succeed …
Training with Patrick Sansbury has been fantastic. I have had other coaches but few with the skill, analytics and race tactics that Pat possesses. If you want to improve and are willing to put in the work, Pat will chart your course.
After two years of growing as a cyclist under your coaching, I can honestly say it has been one of the more rewarding experiences I have had in any of the sports or hobbies I have participated in.
I began in motorsports and competitive events at a young age and have always been a proponent of coaching. I have watched many people with the talent to excel, be stopped short of their goals because they did not want to accept advice from others that had walked the path and could help them make use of their ability.
I have enjoyed the sport more and have been able to reach my goals in events that I otherwise would not have without the strength, and confidence the Pinnacle program has helped me gain
This was the first race I wasn’t just satisfied with just finishing but actually trying to go for the podium. It didn’t go as planned but it finally sparked my competitive side in the sport. You pushed me harder in terms of intensity than I’ve ever trained and it is obviously paying off, so thank you. I know there’s still a long way to go but I’m finally feeling confident in my ability as a cyclist and the fact that I can be competitive in these races. Thank you for all that you have done!
The biggest lessons I’ve learned was how to be consistent and it paid off with a GC win — something I’ve never done before and something that I am very proud to have accomplished. I attribute my success to you and your coaching. I hope we can continue our growth into the 16 season.
Before I started working with Patrick, I was one of those “always fit” guys with unpredictable fitness. Pat’s great care in charting my fitness and power data has given me predictability, in addition take me to a new level, which I never knew I was capable of.
