"I came to Kim after a series of disappointing coaching and racing experiences. I told her I wanted to see how far I could go as an athlete, but I didn't like training in a vacuum and doing mindless efforts with no idea as to why they were necessary. I also told her my time was limited. Around all those demands she made magic. She gave me efficient, detailed workouts coupled with explanations for why they were important. I had goals, sure, but Kim had vision, and she knew I was capable of way more than I knew. And she got that out of me with smart, patient coaching. She uncovered strengths I didn't know I had. And I accomplished more than I ever would have imagined. She's a wizard."
Christine Fennessy 2x masters national champion
"Thank you for a wonderful track clinic! Our juniors and masters riders went from 0 to 60 (well OK, maybe not 60) in no time."
Rock Creek Velo
"With an unconventional lifestyle that includes sometimes demanding physical labor, I got lucky to find a coach who has a deep understanding of the physiology of training and racing. I needed someone who could adapt to unusual and changing situations - not someone who would just give me a monthly plan.
Kim is astoundingly quick, accurate and thoughtful in responding to my communications. So much so that I sometimes feel like I am her only athlete. Also, since Kim has been a top-level athlete, I know that I am not throwing anything at her that she has not been through herself - probably to a much higher degree.
I knew before masters nationals that I was as prepared as possible for my race. And when I got my silver medal, I felt like it was 90% Kim's."
Brean Shea masters national championship medalist
"From our first communications, Kim was an enthusiastic, dedicated and highly professional coach. Throughout the process, she was extremely responsive, encouraging, and attentive. Her scientific approach and extensive and successful cycling experience allows you to put your full faith in her methods. I stuck to the plan and won gold. I cannot recommend Kim highly enough for any aspiring cyclist out there."
Kate Veronneau masters national champion
"Kim’s nutritional analysis and advice helped my son learn how to take better care of his nutrition before, during and after practice as well as during his swim meets. Her advice played a part in helping him achieve personal bests at the recent state championship meet as well as at the sectional/east coast regional swimming meet."
Joe Vita, father of championship swimmer
"Kim Geist took on the challenge of coaching me, a complete novice, and taught me the key aspects of the sport. The training regimen that she designed for me was challenging, but she made sure it was doable within my busy personal and professional life. With Kim's help I was able to exceed my expectations and in the process she helped me stick to one of my main goals which was to have fun learning a new sport"
Lisa Nutter masters national championship medalist
"3 months working with Kim Geist Coaching and the gap between me and the guy I've been chasing all season has gone from 3 minutes to 3 seconds! Hats to you, Kim, for getting so much out of me in so short a time."
Brian Wacik Paralympic hopeful
"Kim gave us techniques to utilize before and during the race, everything from how to properly warm up before an event, to cornering safely and efficiently, attacking, working together as a team to tire the other racers, and so much more. We can't wait to do it again."
"Kim went above and beyond to make sure my goals were met including the junior world championship. Kim is very knowledgeable, goal-oriented, and always there when you need her."
Bailey Semian 2x junior national champion, junior world championship team member
"Prior to working with Kim I worked with numerous other coaches. Kim is by far and away the best coach I have worked with. What you might ask are things that make working with Kim special?
- Kim draws on both her education and personal experience from years of incredible success at the international level as a competitor to draft specific training plans for the events that you choose as your priorities.
- Kim is also able to help with the technical aspects as well as points to focus on during competition in order to achieve your personal best.
- Kim has worked with experts in various aspects of high-level sports performance and shares all that she has learned from her work with these experts. She also takes the time to keep up with new research in exercise science and nutrition.
- Kim is not a coach who gives meaningless and undeserved positive feedback. I really appreciate that Kim’s feedback is authentic, genuine and constructive.
- Kim is completely reliable. She has never failed to provide me with my monthly training plan and answers any questions I have in a timely manner."
Joe Vita, long-time Kim Geist Coaching athlete
"It seems as though Coach always has a new skill to teach, a new way to suggest how to make an improvement. I am seeing improvements over time and can measure the progress plus have so much fun with the other athletes, as well. What an amazing adventure. I have to pinch myself. This is real."
Jo Johnson multi-time masters national champion
"I can't give enough credit to Kim Geist for the growth and progress I've made as a cyclist over the last few years. Kim's passion for her work and the attention she puts into maximizing potential makes it easy to trust that every ounce of effort I put forth is going towards helping me achieve my goals. No matter how often I have challenged her, Kim has always risen to the occasion to address my training needs (and general scientific curiosity!), be it through her acquired knowledge or through a seemingly endless list of resources. It's incredible to see your hard work molded into success in Kim's capable hands!"
Kimberly Zubris elite national champion, world championship team member
"Seventeen years after I retired from the sport, I agreed to take on a challenge. And, I knew I needed a whip to keep me motivated. Kim was just that. Kim is honest, reliable and disciplined, and she expects the same from the people she coaches. I loved working with her."
Karen Bliss former professional cyclist and multi-time elite national champion
"I started working with Kim after coaching myself my first season of racing (and burning out early!). She had done pretty much everything I wanted to aim for in cycling. For 5 years she created training plans that were easy to understand, doable with my full time job, and still helped me continuously improve and attain several goals, the crowning achievement being a second place finish and PR at the elite track national championships."
Julia Lonchar elite national championship medalist
"Last year my daughter set a goal for herself to be a national champion. We made a trip for a one week training session with Coach Kim. Sarah went on to win the junior nationals. The training she got from Kim was a huge part to her success! Thank you Kim!"
Peter Dressel father of Sarah Dressel, junior national champion
