WHAT IS BASECAMP GROUP COACHING?
BaseCamp group coaching programs are developed to be a community of learning and growth guided by experts, with the goal of achieving exponential progress and momentum in your training and performance through the four pillars of endurance performance success: on-the-bike training, nutrition, strength training, and mental performance.
Group coaching is built for you!
Being part of a group does not mean the training is not customized to you. Each member completes a training and fitness survey to share their goals, training availability, training history, and more. Our expert team of coaches evaluates the responses and assigns a customized training plan to each member.
group coaching BENEFITS
"Train where you belong!"
When we connect with a community of people with similar values and goals who want to see you succeed, amazing things can happen.
There's an incredible energy and collective wisdom in group coaching that's different from 1x1 coaching or training plans, and it's this energy and wisdom that can accelerate your improvement.
Members are accountable to each other for their goals and progress. Being part of our supportive community can make it easier to stay positive and motivated when you face challenges.
Group coaching is more affordable than one-on-one coaching. BaseCamp group coaching is led by a team of experts and includes training, nutrition, strength, and mental performance coaching.
WHY HIRE ONE COACH WHEN you CAN HIRE AN ENTIRE PERFORMANCE TEAM?
To ensure the highest quality group coaching program in the endurance sports world, we have built an industry-leading team of experts. Head Coach Tim Cusick develops and writes all the on-the-bike training plans.

Our strength program is designed specifically for cyclists by bestselling author and strength trainer Menachem Brodie, while our sports psychology is led by renowned sports psychologist Carrie Jackson.
