The Mission

Dialed Health exists to ensure cyclists have an incredible experience on-the-bike. We build bodies to support riding schedules by emphasizing health off-the-bike. This happens through specific strength training, recovery modalities, nutrition protocol, and mindset strategies that are supported by the results of real people, across every riding discipline.

The Mission
Start Moving Forward

Start Moving Forward

The Process of taking action to pursue your goals. It doesn’t require a clear path, just your commitment to taking the first step. An honest evaluation of those results will unveil the next step, and so on. Choosing to “start” is a daily decision embraced by the Dialed Fam that makes growth inevitable.

Each program has clear instruction and short video coaching for every exercise.

Derek Teel grew up aspiring to be a downhill mountain bike racer.  When he made it to the professional ranks, his team provided trainers and nutritionists that inspired him to pursue a different career path.  In 2013 he transitioned to the general health and fitness industry as a personal trainer while continuing to spend time on his mountain bike.

After an effort in enduro racing, it was confirmed that strength training specifically for cyclists was a common need that his unique background could fulfill.  Committed to this new mission, Dialed Health was officially founded in 2016. Shortly after, he opened a studio in 2018 for in-person training and launched his first ever online training program.

Now spending most of his time riding/racing road, gravel, and XC MTB, he was inspired to create a wider variety of products to suit riders' specific needs.  Derek now works full-time providing strength training programs and coaching through where he strives to make healthier cyclists who perform better around the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if Dialed Health is right for me?

Dialed Health is built for someone who wants to build their strongest, healthiest body, that actually helps them ride harder, recover faster, and feel better. Whether you are a seasoned racer or weekend warrior, there is a plan for you.

Does Dialed Health provide “on the bike” training plans?

Our goal is to cover all of the strength work necessary to reach your goals. With that said, general riding recommendations concerning volume and intensity are provided. Specific intervals, power outputs, and live coaching will require additional services.

Do I need gym access?

You are not required to have gym access. We now offer an 8-week “No Equipment” program that allows you to train from your living room. There are also limited-equipment options like the “Dumbbell Only” Program and the “Mobility” Program that make training without a gym effective and achievable.

When do new programs come out?

New programs will drop once per month until there are 10 options to choose from. From there, programs will be re-built as needed and new demands arise. All programs are a minimum of 2 months in duration. There is currently over a years worth of programming available.



I’m already seeing many Strava PR’s and getting to the very top of those steep climbs I’ve never been able to do before. On top of feeling stronger I also feel more stable in tricky, technical sections of trail.

Dialed Health has really helped me develop the wellness and conditioning routine that I have been looking for over the past several years. My job as a professional mountain biker and storyteller requires an extensive amount of time traveling, and that can create quite the disruption to an athlete's routine, but he has really worked with me over the years to fine tune my plan so that I am able to prepare myself ahead of time.

Brice S.

Working out with Dialed Health increased my confidence on the trail. I gained the strength in my core and upper body to tackle technical climbs and the strength in my legs to keep on riding. As a bonus from my training, I went down a pant size.

Sharel H.

The online coaching is incredible. My questions are always answered quickly and include helpful information. Having the instructional videos for each exercise movement are game changers for gym goers and non gym goers alike.

Quincy S.

Since starting the program 2 months ago I have dropped 10lbs and my riding endurance has skyrocketed! I have smashed all my old climbs and my overall balance, control, and intensity on the bike has gone way up! Thanks Derek!
