Bill Campie has 15 years of endurance sport experience and has coached fellow cyclists for over a decade. Having never had the luxury of bike racing without a family or other commitments, Bill quickly learned that the traditional means of training were not effective for a balanced lifestyle. Bill decided not to let that define his cycling and created a way to compete within real life constraints. Creating a training system that is based on utilizing your time most effectively, Bill has found that carefully crafting training so that work, family, and cycling is all very much a part of the plan creates a holistic approach that develops each aspect of your life. Based on as much discussion about cycling as about your other life goals, the training becomes a part of your life instead an add-on that no one has time for.
