CFL Coaching is all about supporting, educating and celebrating the growing number of cyclists over 50, their achievements, challenges and the pursuit of staying fit and healthy for life. My name is Mike Stensrud and I have been cycling for nearly 40 years. I am 61 years old, focused on maintaining my fitness, still motivated to train, compete and test my physical limits. I am fully aware of my physical limitations as I age yet, curious on methods to best maximize my training, recovery, diet and mental freshness to maintain my fitness. We are all encouraged, motivated and inspired when we see masters age athletes accomplish amazing results. Is it genetic, mental toughness or is it possible that within all of us lies the potential to accomplish our own epic performance as we age? There is plenty of evidence available that proves we can still kick some butt if we do the right amount of training, recovery and consistency to reach our cycling goals.
This site is dedicated to look deeper into this question of maintaining fitness as we age! My goal is to provide education, training tips, healthy life style options, diet, and your success stories to inspire us all to be the best we can be today and for years to come. Welcome aboard!
