Details

Coach John is a high performance coach across several brands at QT2 Systems LLC where he has coached for 10 years (QT2, The Cycling Formula and The Run Formula). John works with committed cyclists, triathletes and runners using a detail-oriented model that has proven to foster success. John uses many tools to identify his athletes’ strengths and weaknesses in an effort to develop a plan that produces, and often exceeds what the athlete thought possible. John utilizes heart rate variability, with the Whoop device, to monitor the response to training load in addition to the tools available via Training Peaks. John also reviews blood work for common vitamin and mineral deficiencies in order to optimize performance. A major component of John’s coaching is his focus on helping his athletes to create and maintain the “daily performance environment”. This includes self-myofascial bodywork for mobility, diet and macro nutrient timing, sleep hygiene and addressing all recovery limiters. Additionally, John does bike fits on all of his athletes and thoroughly enjoys running training camps and working in a squad atmosphere, where everyone is pushed beyond their comfort zone. John believes in utilizing adventure, wherever possible, as a tool to build fitness. John’s athletes consistently set PRs year-to-year.  On a personal athletic note, John has competed in hundreds of bike races and running races plus over 200 triathlons since the age of 14 including 13 Ironmans and twice competed at Ironman Hawaii. He currently competes as a gravel cyclist and recently did the Dirty Kanza 200. John also competes in mountain running races and ski mountaineering races. John and his wife live in Waterbury, Vermont with their 120 pound affectionate Rottweiler.
