It was the late-90’s and thanks to his popular Training Bible book series, Joe Friel’s coaching business was growing rapidly. But in the dawning age of the Internet, he noted that coaches and athletes still relied on inefficient handmade logs, email and fax machines.
Around the same time Joe’s son Dirk, a former pro cyclist and coach himself, got together with his best friend Gear Fisher, an engineer and cyclist as well. Over beers, Dirk echoed Joe’s frustrations. Gear confidently said that he could create a web-based training log that would enable Joe and Dirk to deliver their coaching methodology efficiently to athletes anywhere. Within a year, the world’s first online training log allowing coaches to work with an unlimited number of athletes was released. Over time, TrainingPeaks became a neutral platform allowing any coach to deliver their own methodology, or any athlete to train intelligently and effectively according to a plan of their choice.
