Success stories from ProPower athletes

One of ProPower's Clients

My biggest regret is that I didn’t find him earlier

“After trying every training plan under the sun over the years and making only marginal gains in performance, I can now say I’ve finally hit the jackpot. The improvements I’ve experience in the first 6 months under Larry’s ProPower coaching program have been outstanding…my biggest regret is that I didn’t find him earlier.  Larry takes the time to really understand his athletes – your time constraints, abilities, goals, etc. and then he helps you set realistic milestones to achieve success along the way. I’m riding at whole new level now…thanks to Larry.”

Larry’s careful planning, dynamic approach and cycling knowledge has kept me motivated

“At the end of 2011 season I wanted to train more effectively with the objective to achieve better results in 2012 season. Larry has helped me out with my training program towards achieving my objectives for 2012 and beyond. Looking at the past few months, Larry’s careful planning, dynamic approach and cycling knowledge has kept me motivated even during the winter hard months with many hours of indoor training sessions. I just completed the Tour of Battenkill finishing on 6th place, and first objective (top 10) met. I could not have achieved it without you Larry!”

He is humble, but knowing Larry’s personal cycling history, his efforts and experience produce results.

“Although I have been riding with Larry for more than 20 years, and while I have always considered him “Sensei”, it has only been for the past year or so that I can officially call him coach. Larry brings decades of personal experience, and a love and passion for cycling that invites those that ride a bike to first really just enjoy the time on the road or in the woods. After that if you want to enjoy the trip at a faster pace, with a little more sweat and pain…hang on, Larry will keep you going. As a coach, Larry has provided personalized training, with regular communication. He seems to remember more about my own schedule, training and race events, than I do. In hearing him talk to others that he coaches, I can see that I am not alone when it comes to his attention to detail with each cyclist he works with.

As I watched one of Larry’s junior riders win the NJ State Championship Cross race, I can attest the Larry was more proud and excited of that result, than he has been with many of his own accomplishments. He is humble, but knowing Larry’s personal cycling history, his efforts and experience produce results.”

Larry understands my time constraints, and maximizes my time in the saddle, and keeps my training focused.

“I’ve only been with Larry a short time, but already I can see results. Having tried ‘my own way’ with limited results for over 8 years, I finally decided it was time to step my game up, and have someone with decades of experience guide me. I’ve known Larry for years, and even before he was my coach, he was always someone who by nature, was someone who was a mentor for so many, including myself. What I love is Larry understands my time constraints, and maximizes my time in the saddle, and keeps my training focused. The communication is great, and not only do I have someone to help guide me, but someone who is equally excited about my results and efforts. He just makes you want to work harder out there.”

“I have been working with Larry for one full year. It has been an absolute pleasure. This was my first time being coached and also working with power. Larry always makes time for me, encourages me while at the same time giving realistic and honest feedback. I have signed up for another year and we discussed my goals and expectations. I have no doubt that I will show progress again with Larry in my corner.”

As a coach, Larry is a great resource. His years of experience, as both a coach and a racer, provide invaluable insight into how to race as well as train.

“When I started racing in 2012, I was coming from the world of whitewater kayaking–which is not an endurance sport! While I had the technical skills to handle a bike, I didn’t have the fitness to be competitive. And while I could’ve figured out a training program on my own, I didn’t have the time. That’s when I started looking for a coach.tim-boringNow, I’ve been working with Larry for three seasons. This past season, 2015, was my best: I had 2 podium finishes in road races, one of which was the NJ Cat 4 Road Race Championships.
As a coach, Larry is a great resource. His years of experience, as both a coach and a racer, provide invaluable insight into how to race as well as train. Anyone can read a book and put together a training “plan”; but not everyone can combine training with racing knowledge to produce results. And, most importantly, Larry listens to his athletes and provides the help they need for their specific situation. You don’t get a cookie-cutter experience with Larry.  You get an expert coach who cares about his athletes.”
