"Spencer's coaching acknowledges that athletic performance is not simply about fitness. He offers an approach that integrates the subtler pieces of training; motivation, performance psychology, appropriate goal setting, and evidence-based guidance that reaches beyond "the workout" or "the race." Working with Spencer has made me a more balanced and mentally resilient athlete, and helped me cultivate a limitless concept of what is possible with the right preparation."

"Quest Race Team competed in the Adventure Racing World Championships in 2017. 500 miles of mt. biking, trekking, and packrafting across Wyoming. The task was daunting, and we were overwhelmed with how to prepare for it. That's when we called Spencer. He came up with a multi-week training plan that involved biking, running, paddling, strength training, and nutrition. Our four person team finished the race with no injuries and smiles on our faces thanks to Spencer's knowledge and skill in preparing us."

"Anyone considering a training arrangement should know that Spencer is fastidious and methodical, all while imbuing his own stoke and capitalizing on yours. My riding and overall athleticism has been shored up with a solid new foundation and I look forward to continuing to benefit from his measured consideration and natural acumen for sport and instruction."
