Kevin’s cycling training philosophy is all about setting manageable goals, developing a personalized training plan, and working towards your goals.

With good resistance training plans, diet instruction, and learning race/riding and dynamics/etiquette he carries athletes to their “podium” dreams. Racing and riding bikes is 50% physical and 50% mental; Coach Kevin wants to prepare you for 110% of your racing and riding goals.

He spends time with a bicycle pedal project where he raises money to buy bikes, for pastors, to help spread the Word of God in unreached parts of Asia. Finally Kevin loves to spend time developing and working with a cycling ministry, directed towards less fortunate kids and focusing on their well being through a walk with Jesus Christ.
Chris Coren is a Chemist / Fitness and Health Expert, a 2013 MRI-Endurance Athlete, and he was the 2009 Georgia Mountain Bike XC/Pro Champion 19-29 male. Chris got into racing while at his local bike shop (CycleWorks), he picked up a brochure for the Georgia Gap Series, an organization that promoted mountain bike racing. His first race was down in Oxford, Georgia and he went on to win that race on that green Huffy. The rest is history! He earned a category 1 discipline in cross-country mountain bike racing in 2007 and then went on to become the 2009
Georgia State Champion. While racing he sported the Kennesaw State University flag, and earned his degree in Chemistry. He instructed / designed spin classes and was a Lead Tech at his local pharmacy, while still in school. Passion and balance are the only way he made it through school, work, and riding bikes. Time mostly spent riding bikes! My experience in cycling is with cross-country mountain biking and endurance bicycle riding. He is currently a top ranked racer for the Georgia and Southeast Regional championship series for 2013. He has been a top ranked rider every year since 2006, juggling school, work and daily life - living is my passion!
This July 2013 marks my 7th year teaching spin class at La-Fitness. He has been in healthcare for almost half of his life and he has learned the best health care is the care you give to yourself and others. He started racing mountain bikes when I was 13! So, taking care of self starts with purpose and direction. Coaching myself and for The Lead Pack Cycling Group, will provide direction, but purpose is up to the individual. As a student you will be motivated to establish goals and check points for the future. Remember that students and coaches must stay accountable to each other in order to achieve desired goals. We will form a mutual agreement that must be understood in order to establish the do’s and don’ts to fitness and exercise theory. Theory because we are all different in some way. Our coaching’s fitness and training programs must be individualized to each student in order to precisely address corrective behaviors.
When coaching services are provided, there must be a sense of trust between student and teacher. Chris works with his clients to create and evaluate self worth which is critical to accomplishing goals. (What are your weaknesses and what
are your strengths? How does your daily life affect the training process?) Chris will put in place a training philosophy that starts with an Individualized Plan, a Structured Base phase, a Transition phase, a Building phase, a Maintenance
phase and a Race phase. Structure is critical and must be applied to allow for the necessary physiological changes and adaptations to occur. Coaching programs also will encompass nutrition and lifestyle requirements that are necessary for
cycling and fitness goals.
