“As a time crunched person who spends more hours going through airports than on the bike, having Erik as a coach has been great. He has helped me increase fitness and endurance with a well thought out plan. The plan is tailored to accommodate my travel and work schedule. It takes advantage of Training Peaks and Zwift. He tracks my progress and makes changes to challenge me to reach new heights; it isn't easy but it is effective. The plan takes into account recovery, rest, and family time.
We first met for him to understand my goals and work-life time demands. After an initial fitness test on the bike, Erik created a program and then adjusts as you go.
I highly recommend Erik as a coach. He listens, looks at data, requests feedback, and makes adjustments accordingly. I am very pleased with what the outcome of training with him.”

“Erik and I have ridden together many years. He has always encouraged me to try new technology and new training methods. I decided to use him as a coach last year when I was not seeing the progress that I wanted. We tossed around a few ideas and he convinced me that I should get a smart trainer and power meter for my training. We developed a plan that would work with my schedule.
Since I started with Dutch Diesel Coaching I have seen a 10 percent improvement in FTP over the last year and have seen my times drop on many segments on Strava. The workouts are tough but Erik is very responsive if changes need to be made. If you’re racing, looking to do your first century or just looking to improve your overall fitness I would highly recommend Dutch Diesel Coaching!”
