My name is Erin Johnson owner and founder of Pinnacle Performance Training. I am a certified Endurance Coach living in Louisville, Colorado. Currently I specialize in coaching Ultra Distance Mountain Bike racers and Ultra Runners. Or as I like to call it, Beyond the Marathon!
As a former professional level Mountain Bike Racer, I have completed more than a dozen 100-mile races including Leadville, Breckenridge (my favorite) and the Hundo. In addition, I landed on the podium five times. I am an endurance lover! Before finding my love for epic days on the bike I spent most of my time adventure racing and traversing mountains on foot.
In 2009 I had to take some time off and was subsequently plagued by injuries and illness. Five years and eight surgeries later, I quit my job and retired from racing. If I wasn’t going to be able to compete myself, I was going to do whatever it took to share my knowledge and help other athletes achieve their goals. I want to live vicariously through YOU!
During my time recovering from injury, I had to go from the hospital to six-hour training rides on several occasions. I understand what it feels like to be down and have to build yourself back up again and again…not just your body, but your mind as well.
As a working Mom I understand the demands of family and life on an athlete. Expect me to specialize in maximizing your time while getting you the most “bang for the buck”. I am passionate about training; racing and helping athletes reach their goals whether you strive for the podium or just to finish in “good style”.
Please contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with you!
