WattsUp offers a road race specific program each November to March. This is a program separate from the regular, more generic WattsUp program and is designed for cyclists who are competitive road racers or want to become competitive road racers. And while it is a "competitive" program, it is open to all levels of fitness... it is not only for the fastest racers. For more information, visit: wattsupcyling.ca/raceprogram.html.

WattsUp's founder/owner, Adam Johnston, remains active in personal coaching. Each year Adam works with a handful of athletes to assist them to achieving their endurance-related goals. He's been coaching endurance athletes since 1999, having helped hundreds of athletes remain healthy, train consistently, achieve new heights in their fitness, and go onto becoming first time finishers and setting personal bests. Adam's worked with first timers, seasoned age groupers, and elite athletes alike. Primarily triathletes, cyclists, and runners. He's been fortunate to work with athletes who have qualified for and competed in: Hawaii Ironman (age group), 70.3 World Championships (elite and age group), ITU World Championships (elite and age group), National Olympic Triathlon Championships (elite and age group), and the Boston Marathon.

Adam's focus while coaching is on ensuring the program fits the athlete. And not the other way around. He places emphasis on training-life balance, realistic expectations, enjoying the process vs the outcome, and balance within the training program. He has worked both with WattsUp Cycling athletes and remote athletes equally well.

Personal coaching is $299 / month + HST for non-WattsUp athletes and is $199 / month + HST for current WattsUp athletes. Adam's roster is typically in flux through the fall, and settles in for the winter through to the following fall. Feel free to inquire anytime about the availability of Adam's personal coaching service.

Lactate Testing
We offer stand-alone lactate testing services. Athletes use lactate tests for a number of reasons, including to measure their current fitness level and help determine reasonable training zones/guidelines. Lactate testing requires 90 minutes of your time, only half of which is spent on the bike (or run). We use a ramp test protocol, which has you starting out very light and building throughout the test to a medium hard effort by the end. It is not a maximal effort test, nor are the results dependent on your level of motivation. Athletes walk away with a simple two-page report summarizing their test results and suggested training zones.
Lactate Testing = $175 + HST

Time Trialling
Athletes part of the WattsUp program undergo regular lactate testing. And they have the option of tacking on a 5 minute time trial at the end of their lactate testing session (which we encourage). The results of the time trial help solidify, and in some cases modify, the training zone guidelines determined from the lactate testing session. In addition, it provides a terrific real-time athlete-coach interaction where our tester is right beside the athlete, providing coaching and motivational cues. Unlike the lactate test, the time trial is a maximal effort test and the results are completely dependent on your level of motivation.
Lactate Testing + Time Trial = $199 + HST
