Our returning client and super-star endurance athlete, Lauren, had a private session with Virginia this week. Lauren races mountain bikes and compete in trail running races. 

Virginia and Lauren had an awesome time, and saw some great improvement in Lauren's cornering, particularly her downhill switchbacks! She got a lot more confident cornering at speed, and could feel when she was doing things right vs using her old habits, which is what we really care about! 

Lauren said her biggest take aways were learning about the brake zone, being smooth and consistent with feathered rear braking, looking ahead, and turning her hips when she turns. 

Here is a quick recap of her athletic successes:
