Maddison Russell

CTS Pro Coach – Specializes In Cycling Coaching


Coach Bio:

Between competing as a cyclist and a runner, I have been an endurance athlete for over fifteen years. I started as a competitive runner throughout high school and a few years racing club collegiate at Indiana University. From there, I got onto a bike and have been a dedicated cyclist ever since, with a focus on gravel and road racing. I graduated from Indiana University with a major in Exercise Science, and minors in Coaching and Psychology.

I’ve been a coach with CTS since 2017. In that time, I have worked with athletes across all major endurance sports disciplines, including cycling, running, and triathlon. In addition to optimizing fitness and performance, a major goal of mine is to help athletes balance the obligations of daily life with their training and racing goals.

I believe that when an athlete understands why they are doing something a certain way and the mechanisms behind it, they grow into a more successful and complete athlete. I take pride in being able to effectively communicate training strategies and philosophies to my athletes with the detail and clarity they deserve.
