Derek's interest for health and fitness initially sparked while racing on Yeti Cycles downhill team in 2009. Meeting with trainers and nutritionists opened his eyes to the world of performance that stuck beyond his years of racing. Fast forward and his training career has taken him all over California. From high end facilities focused on personal training, to large boot camp classes, these experiences have allowed him to take the knowledge of the general fitness space and cater it to the real needs of cyclists. Now as Dialed Health, Derek trains clients at his studio in person and works with athletes all over the world through his online training platform.

Also, where can I get that wallpaper ?????
Way cool to fire up Pinkbike and see Dereks workouts here. Great programs and his podcast is nice too.
I think workouts are more important than gear when it comes to fun on the trail, performance and progression.
Buy a nice bike, get in shape, destroy gear junkies everywhere.
Keep at it DT!!
Today I'm riding faster than I ever have in my life, and I'm almost 40. The pain is gone and my form is solid. Derek's programs are super targeted and he won't waste time with stuff that doesn't directly translate to performance on the bike. His riding and racing experience really pays off. Can't recommend DH enough, total game changer.
Even if you think your fitness isn't a weak point, there's no harm in checking out what Derek has to offer
No stone unturned
