Chris Carmichael on Mastering the Mental Side of Training and Coaching the Best in the World
On today’s episode of the Keep Going Podcast, we speak with Chris Carmichael, a former professional cyclist and the founder and CEO of Carmichael Training Systems.
Cycling influenced Chris in many ways over the years, learning skills as a young kid biking around Florida that influenced his career and prepared him to become a renowned coach down the line. Chris himself was a member of the 1984 US Olympic Team and part of the first American team (7-Eleven) to race the Tour de France in 1986.
After suffering a career ending injury while skiing, Chris channeled his passion for cycling into becoming a successful coach and entrepreneur, founding Carmichael Training Systems in 2000, making world-class coaching accessible to athletes of all ability levels. Through Chris’s leadership, CTS immediately established itself as the premier destination for personal fitness, nutrition, and life coaching; a leadership position the company has held throughout its 20-year history.
