What They Say About Us
“I have worked for month with Jakub using his tailored plan. I was very out of shape at the time. Jakub's plan built me up in steps, and was hard when I needed it to be. Later as I became more fit he adjusted the plan so I was challenged, but my fitness continued to build and my training desire stayed high. His plan was able to see me attain top 10 in my age group at SBT GVL Black, Oregon Trail Gravel Stage race and 17th GC at Rebecca's Private Idaho Gravel Stage Race. I highly recommend Jakub.”
Anthony BrantleyUnited States
“Jakub's plans have had almost instant results for me. In three months of consistent training, my FTP has increased significantly, along with my fitness and general feel on the bike. The plans have been interesting and varied so I haven’t got bored once! Over a short period, the program has allowed me to go from hanging onto a B grade crit to getting a podium in my first A grade road race. Can’t recommend this plan highly enough.”
“High quality cycling training plan. Very detailed oriented, challenging and fun workouts improved my cycling fitness drastically. On top of that, any questions were answered promptly with a coach support! Very happy and would recommend to anyone looking to boost their cycling fitness.”
