Tim's all-new WKO4 Power Duration iLevels plans will make the difference in your training this season!

Coggan Classic Plans 
These classic plans are designed for the competitive cyclist and include heart rate, power, and perceived exertion, with all-new progressive fatigue resistance and intensive workouts! All plans include predicted TSS and new, structured, ongoing testing.  
Masters or Standard Plan? 
Choosing the actual age range isn’t as important as choosing the recovery you need. The Masters plan includes more recovery time, so if you recover quickly and want more work, choose the standard plan; if you want more recovery, choose the Masters plan.

Coach Tim Cusick
If you're looking for a coach who knows his stuff, you've found him. Tim has developed more national and world champions in ten years of coaching than most other coaches in the USA. Tim's background in business consulting and his personal experience with cycling have given him an amazing ability to combine the science of coaching with the art of coaching. He is currently the product leader and developer for WKO4, the go-to analytical software for endurance training; working with Dr. Andy Coggan and programmer Kevin Williams keeps him on the cutting edge of endurance training and coaching, interacting with dozens of top coaches and teams throughout the world as he educates them to use new analytics to better their own athletes. 

Tim has been an athlete his entire life, beginning with football, wrestling, ice hockey, and track in his high school and college years, and moving on to cycling in all disciplines in his adult years. Tim started out racing mountain bikes at an elite level on the NORBA circuit and branched out into road, TT, and cyclocross racing. Right now he just loves to ride; he trains and competes locally at the Wednesday Night Worlds, all of course while gearing up for our annual Velocious camps and events.

Kathy Watts
Kathy has been a cyclist as long as she can remember. She got her first ten-speed bike in eighth grade, and it was downhill from there. She's ridden all styles of bikes and entered all styles of races. She mountain biked into her 30s at an elite level with a state championship title, then switched to road racing in her 40s, earning a state title and a successful nationals run in the time trial. 

After twenty-four years of running her own outdoor and bicycle retail business, she started working with Peaks Coaching Group as an elite coach and the PCG athlete-coach coordinator. Kathy loves coaching because it is an incredible way to combine years of empirical cycling knowledge with new power analytics and diagnostics to help dozens of excited athletes reach their cycling potential.

Kathy enjoys working with athletes who are passionate about their goals, big or small! She loves supporting her athletes in many ways; not just meeting (or exceeding) their cycling goals and dreams, but also dealing with life and stress and finding the balance that makes them happy.
