Team USA athlete Maddie Godby is the latest Olympian and track cyclist training with Velocity. The 28-year-old international competitor came to Coach Vick with the goal of getting stronger and more explosive.
Training 2-3 days a week in the gym, she’s used that same Gymaware technology to monitor and prescribe highly specific training that fits her unique needs as an individual and as a sprint cyclist.
“We are fine-tuning at this stage so there are targets and we want to hit the right zones. Just to have that feedback is really helpful. Sometimes that means adding more weight and other times it means less.” comments Godby.
So far, it’s working. In May, she performed at a high level in Hong Kong at the only international event in over 14 months. She spent most of that time off the velodrome track since they were closed in the pandemic. However, putting in the time, training in the gym has made her much stronger and explosive. Qualities she’ll put to use in Tokyo.
But there is more than just training according to Godby. “I’m really good at pushing myself and training hard. So in order to do that I needed to find ways to recover better. So that’s a really big part of what I’ve been doing at Velocity.”
