Who: Quincy Simon
Where: Wichita, Kansas
Favorite Dialed Workout/Program: XC Program, anything Kettlebell, and of course IT Band Prehab
Favorite Trail/Route/Area: Bentonville Arkansas
Favorite Workout Song: Killswitch Engage Radio
Favorite Indulgence: Ice Cream, by the pail. Derek knows all about that :)
Quick Bio: Endurance Athlete, addicted to the suffer fests of cycling. I prefer Singletrack but also ride lots of Gravel because Kansas has plenty of gravel roads to offer. Strength Training is my weakness, always has been, but Dialed Health is changing that for me and my family as well. 2021 will undoubtedly be the best year so far thanks to this programming and the entire #DIALEDFAM. That is all. Stay Rad!

Who: Amsyar Hanif
Where: Pasir Ris, Singapore
Favorite Dialed Workout/Program: Currently on the XC program, love the Kettle bell stuff as well!
Favorite Trail/Route/Area: Bukit Timah
Favorite Workout Song: I don't really listen to music when working out, most of the time it's the Dialed Health podcast or TrainerRoad podcast
Favorite Indulgence: Pizza. Lots and lots of pizza.
Quick Bio: Used to race BMX locally about 9 years ago, did a few MTB races as well (DH and 4X), never really finished on the podium but I loved the competition atmosphere. Stopped riding bikes for a while, put on way too much weight and recently got back on the bike thanks to the pandemic. Did my first ever XCO race this year in the worst conditions you could ask for, didn't get a DNF, didn't finish last place (major accomplishment since I was the heaviest rider in the race). I enjoy strength training and putting myself in uncomfortable situations (like that XC race). Looking forward to meet more of the #DIALEDFAM! LET'S DO THIS!

Who: Nick Buck
Where: San Diego, CA (specifically San Elijo Hills/San Marcos/North County SD)
Favorite Dialed Workout/Program: Really digging the guided core and foam rolling
Favorite Trail/Route/Area: I have some great local trails, a good setup for me. Kernville is probably my favorite spot and definitely want to ride the Sierras in the Tahoe area more. Southern Utah always great.
Favorite Workout Song: Hmm, I think it's Juice WRLD/Marshmallow, Come & Go. I'm 45 years old, so I'm kinda out of it...
Favorite Indulgence: Oh man, maybe nachos. I make a giant pile of leftovers on chips and cheese and bake it late night after a big night ride and beer
Quick Bio: Dad of two kids (girl 9, boy 8) and I feel like a kid. Happily married and loving being a family man while still getting after it with rides and staying on top of workouts. I work in the profession of Parks and Recreation for a coastal town, love what i do. Motivated to get in and stay in the best shape of my life. Enjoying experiencing good gains in mobility and recovery. Been riding only MTB since maybe age 12, stepped away from it in my 20s to be obsessed with surfing and came back to MTB obsession in my 30s and that's that. Only ever a trail rider, never raced, just dig challenging riding and having fun on the bike. Currently riding a brand new Stumpjumper EVO and a Levo emtb. Love my bikes (as well as a beautiful 1988 stumpjumper).

I haven't raced much but I love mountain biking in general and I find it a whole lot more fun when my fitness level is higher.
Looking forward to seeing all of the great information this forum is sure to deliver!

***I am covid free! Unfortunately my whole family has it so I am confined to one room, but I can train! (more importantly everyone that does have it is doing fine)

Update on myself:
Possibly covid positive , my wife and in-laws all have it.
Luckily, all of them have had mild symptoms so far. I fully expect to have a positive test result along with my two oldest children (13,12)

I plan to track my food but take it easy on the training for at least this first week just in case. I don't want to put any additional strain on my body if I am indeed infected with covid. Fingers crossed 🤞!

Quick Bio: Mom of a 4-yr old, been riding trails/enduro/dh for 7 years but getting serious about improving my skills for the last 2. Bike shop wife & Bike shop Queen B. I downloaded MyFitnessPal in August after discovering Dialed Health on Instagram and I've managed to get halfway to my goal weight so far. I joined Dialed Health just before the holidays to help get me the rest of the way. My current (somewhat) ambitious goal is to shave down 1.5 min off my PB of 8mins up a local switchback climb, in order to do it as fast as my other mom friends. Segment KOM is just under 3min, there's hope for me!

Who: Riccardo Ryder
Where: Milan, Italy
Favorite Dialed Workout/Program: KB workouts
Favorite Trail/Route/Area: Finale Ligure
Favorite Workout Song: ‘Till I Collapse, Eminem ft. Nate Dogg
Favorite Indulgence: Dark chocolate
Quick Bio: I’m a 30 years old dude who loves to put out energy day cycling, working out and hiking during my free time but I try to find time to do it during my working days too! I’m eating a regular diet but I like vegetarian and vegan recipes too as I try to reduce red meat to once a week.
I’m so grateful to be part of the dialedfam and I love the process of getting better every day!

Who: Sam L
Where: Roseville, CA, USA
Favorite Dialed Workout/Program: Kettlebell Workouts (I wish there was an 8-12 week program that utilized KB and TRX, *wink*)
Favorite Trail/Route/Area: UCSC Trail System
Favorite Workout Song: IDK, depends on what I need to make the most of my workout/ ride--sometimes it's super upbeat and aggressive and sometimes it's super chill.
Favorite Indulgence: COOKIES! and chocolate.
Quick Bio: I am a freshly dubbed 32 year old lady-person who loves dogs, mountain biking (enduro/DH), baking, and reading high-fantasy fiction novels. I did the #Shred last year and lost 35 pounds. Losing the weight has changed not only my riding experience but my quality of life as I've blown out both of knees living the life of a ski bum in my 20s and any excess weight leads to excruciating pain, stiffness, and ultimately immobility. I've managed to keep the weight off through COVID by continuing to follow the program and this year my goal is to lose a little extra body fat to see if I can find the abs my college professors swore I have. I am forever thankful and grateful to Derek and the Dialed Health Family for providing the tools and making the information which has brought me so much happiness and self-confidence so readily available and easy to follow.

Who: I'm Colleen
Where: I live in Saratoga Springs, NY
Favorite Dialed Workout/Program: I love anything with kettlebells but I also love any bodyweight and flow-style workouts.
Favorite Trail/Route/Area: I did a lot of riding in the Catskill mountains this past season and loved the challenges of riding MTB with lots of hills and rocks.
Favorite Workout Song: Anything by Jay-Z (or other kind of raunchy hip hip)
Favorite Indulgence: Pizza and I have a big sweet tooth - however, been tracking macros on and off for many years and find it's the only way that I can hold myself accountable and enjoy a healthy relationship with food. I tracked this past holiday season and actually lost two pounds without feeling like I missed out on anything fun.
Quick Bio: I'm a mom of two (10/girl, 12/boy) and fairly new to the sport of mountain biking. I don't have a background in cycling as I discovered the sport in my adult years and went straight into MTB. I did one cyclocross race too :-) I have a background in competitive weightlifting, Olympic lifting and power lifting. I'm struggling to build endurance since I have a good strength base. I found Derek and Dialed Health when I had enough of sucking wind on uphill climbs and tired of my riding crew having to wait for me. With these workouts, I'm building more core stability than I've ever had and I'm honestly crushing my strength workouts and barbell workouts! I'm riding only indoors now on a spin bike until the snow melts but I'm eager to get back on the trails and see how much better it feels! I also co-lead a group of 80+ young female MTB riders in our area called Saratoga Shredders - you can find the group on Instagram @SaratogaShredders and me on Instagram @SaratogaMama. Look forward to connecting with many of you!

Who: Rebecca
Where: Zürich, Switzerland
Favorite Workout: Love the kettlebell workouts
Favorite Trail: Uetliberg is a great lunchtime ride, but there are so many wonderful trails in this world
Favorite Indulgence: Swiss Chocolate!
Quick Bio: I'm feeling some imposter syndrome here; I just ride for fun, for the chance to get into the woods and push my limits. I don't race or compete. I want to be a better, stronger rider so I can enjoy more trails and avoid injuries. With snow season here, I'm more likely to snowshoe or ski than bike, but I'm looking forward to spring rides.

Who: Sam
Where: Switzerland, between Jura (~1'600m) and the Alps, french speaking part (Southwest of country)
Favorite Dialed Workout/Program: just in my second week now, so.... don't know....
Favorite Trail/Route/Area: the Alps, Wandering trails, as less purpose build trails as possible but the Arosa/Lenzerheide Region is one of my favourite (but 3-4h drive from home)
Favorite Workout Song: no Music during Workout.
Favorite Indulgence: Swiss chocolate and Swiss cheese ! Oh and Beers.... IPA, Stout, Craft, ...
Quick Bio: Just ride for fun, since more than 25 years now. MTB is my drug. I'm also on the road but only to have more mileage and it allows me to go on some places a bit quicker than with a MTB. Strength and mobility training is to avoid injuries, pain (back, hips) and going further, faster.

Favorite Dialed Workout/Program: Strength, Offseason Enduro
Favorite Trail/Route/Area: Magic Carpet, Santa Cruz and Truckee, California

Favorite Indulgence: Chocolate
Quick Bio: My previous life I raced motocross and off-road for 30 years. At 57 I found a new passion for eMTB primarily do to my knees. I love, love gnarly enduro riding and get the same thrill from this as riding off-road. Dialed Health strength and mobility training are my go two's. Cant wait to try eMTB Enduro racing once things are back to normal. Once a racer always a racer!

Who: Joshua Potts
Where: Mobile, AL
Favorite Dialed Workout/Program: so far the XC program has been destroying me!
Favorite Trail/Route/Area: any single track. I love long suffering MTB rides. 40+ miles. Also dabble in some road.
Favorite Workout Song: 90s alternative
Favorite Indulgence: PIZZA. can’t get enough.
Quick Bio: moved here from Kansas where I rode single track and gravel. Decided to focus on MTB because lack of gravel. Started to ride a little road because the rough trails sometimes make you crave some smoothness. I got into this knowing I had a weak core. Always been going to the gym but with more of a power midi than background I struggled doing workouts that would benefit me. My friend Quincy turned me onto this. It’s nice
To hit the gym with more sense of direction and knowing my workouts will help my riding rather than something I do “cuz I should”.
