Adam Pulford

CTS Premier Coach


“My focus as a coach is to elevate the performance of my athletes. I believe there should always a distinguishable and measurable performance marker in what we are trying to achieve in sport and I work with my athletes to develop a realistic, progressive strategy to get there. Through it all, we uncover “the why” we are trying to elevate performance and bring grounding to our goals.” 


Coach Bio: 

Helping athletes develop their full potential is the most rewarding aspect of what I do. I have been a professional, full-time coach with CTS since 2006 and have a BS degree in Exercise Physiology with a minor in both Chemistry and Coaching. Managing and directing professional cycling teams over the past 5 years has been another way to help athletes achieve their top goals. Coaching not only captivates, it motivates me. When not writing training programs or analyzing power files, I can usually be found at a coffee shop, with a book, or riding my bike. And of course, I do enjoy tasty food from around the globe.
