Dirk Friel, U.S. Ski Mountaineering 2020 Masters Champ, Former Pro Cyclist + Coach, and Co-Founder TrainingPeaks On Shifting Gears & Goals and Thinking Like An Olympian

Dirk Friel is the U.S. Ski Mountaineering 2020 Masters Champ. He is a former pro cyclist and has raced the classics such as Het Volk and stage races such as the Tour Du Pont and the Tour of Malaysia. Dirk has top-ten placings in both the U.S. pro road and criterium championships. He is also a sought after cycling coach, and Co-Founder of TrainingPeaks, the ultimate training tool and digital platform for athletes and coaches to plan their training, set goals, measure and track data and progress. It’s compatible with over 100 fitness apps and devices. Whether you are an experienced athlete using your favorite app to record workouts like you Garmin, Apple watch, Zwift, Strava or you are a newbie looking to try something new, all of your workouts are uploaded to Training Peaks for you to view, manage, and analyze.

I sync up with Dirk on how TrainingPeaks began, what inspired the company’s proprietary training metrics, scientific tools and methods that have become the industry standard like TSS®, Training Stress Score®, IF®, Intensity Factor®, NP®, Normalized Power® and VirtualCoach®. I get an inside look at how TrainingPeaks has revolutionized the way that coaches and athletes track, analyze and plan endurance training.

Dirk shares where his journey into athletics, pro-cycling, and coaching began.  He offers some great cycling tips and advice, new training goal ideas for COVID Times, and of course we talk mindset and motivation.  Going from indoor to outdoor cycling and technical things you need to know, Power VS Aero Position on the Bike, Virtual Bike Fittings , Shifting Gears with training and goals, Seasonality of our Bodies

We talk about TrainingPeaks podcast, Coach Cast, which Dirk is currently hosting for Season 2. Dirk tells me about the sport that is currently fueling him for success, Ski Mountaineering, for which he is now the U.S. National Masters Champ, as of 2020, which he earned in early March at Aspen Power of Four.

Matt Wilpers, Senior Instructor, Peloton On Shifting Career Gears and His Global Mission To Empower People Through Fitness

Matt Wilpers is a globally renowned group fitness instructor and running coach thanks to his wildly popular fitness programs and classes on Peloton and his HBO’ run coaching gig with Lena Dunham for her popular TV show Girls, while coaching at Mile High Run Club.

For Matt, Peloton and his private coaching are not just his job. Fitness and sports have always been a way of life!  He was born into skiing. He grew up on the ski slopes, thanks to his mother who worked as a Ski Patroller throughout his childhood.  Flash forward  to his college years, Matt went on to be a NCAA Division 1 Cross Country + Track Athlete at Georgia State University and continued running recreationally after college when he moved to NYC to pursue a career in accounting.  But that all changed for Matt after a running injury forced him to switch gears…His coaching career really began when he signed up for his first spin class. It’s also when his bike and triathlon racing began.

Today, it is Matt’s single focus to use his passion and love of sports to inspire and empower people through being active.  He is a Senior Instructor at Peloton and has a private run coaching business to fuel runners for success.

Peloton is a global interactive fitness platform that brings the energy and benefits of studio-style

workouts to the convenience and comfort of home. With thousands of live and on-demand classes, taught by a roster of elite instructors, Peloton delivers real-time motivation and curated playlists from the world’s best artists. The brand’s immersive content is accessible through the Peloton Bike, the Peloton Tread, and Peloton Digital, which provide a full slate of fitness offerings, wherever you are.

Matt has been coaching runners and cyclists of all ability levels since June of 2008. He believes that a technical and hands-on coaching approach in combination with a fun and positive training atmosphere brings out the best performances in his athletes.

We talk about Matts love of sports and where athleticism began for him, his passion for coaching and helping others achieve their goals, his training philosophy, turning his love and passion into his career, his amazing classes and programs at Peloton, and of course we do a deep dive into Power Zone Training, FTP, TSS and more.
