Another Step For Set Coaching Athlete Stephen Ettinger

Stephen Ettinger had a tremendously successful 2011 MTB season.  USA Cycling has named him for the long list for the 2012 Olympics in London.  Stephens consistent hard work and dedication to the sport is paying off.  Paying off in a big way.




SET Coaching Athlete Stephen Ettinger On his way!

Congrats to Stephen Ettinger.  Great article here on cycling news.




Interesting article on Competitor

One of the main thing I focus on at SET Coaching is to be sure that when an athlete participates in their sport they do it WELL. Not just going through the motions. One of the main aspects of this is a proper bike fit. I just got back from the Retul studios in Denver and am super excited about some of the new information I am going to be able to apply. Also, take a look at the Q and A session of this article.
Interesting to see that the author values bike fit as THE most important upgrade a beginning triathlete can get. I would have to agree.
