While serving in the military, Chuck had the opportunity to play elite level soccer and club hockey. As his military career path changed from Navy to Army, enlisted to officer, information operations to strategy, so did his athletic interests. From ultra-marathons to an Iron Man, Chuck embraced several different disciplines of endurance sports before focusing solely on competitive cycling.
As the number of miles recorded by his Garmin increased, so did his knowledge of physiology, training response, and adoption. As his expertise improved, he helped his teammates and friends with their training, eventually founding KyleCoaching.
As a USA Cycling certified Level 2 coach with additional Power certifications through TrainingPeaks and a certified personal trainer through NPTI Personal Trainer, Chuck combines lessons learned from years of racing with the most recent innovations in exercise science literature to craft training plans and programs that deliver measurable results.
During graduate school, Dana started cycling as a means to reduce stress. After receiving her doctoral degree in economics and moving to the other side of the classroom as a professor, she continued to ride and started to race. After leaving academia, she worked for a local bike shop where she had the opportunity to apply her love of math and numbers to bike fitting. She is a certified BG Fit (Specialized) and F.I.S.T. (Slowtwitch) fitter. Although she returned to the world of economics and teaching, for those in the DMV area, she helps optimize the relationship between KyleCoaching athletes’ bodies and their bikes.
