Sofi is a Cat 1 road cyclist and USAC coach who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Achieve coaching program. She has always had a deep connection to working with athletes and helping them blossom into the best version of themselves.
Growing up, Sofi was a competitive gymnast who enjoyed seeing how far she could push herself in sport. While her gymnastics career was cut short, later in life Sofi found cycling and instantly fell in love.
She began gradually with commuting, bike touring, and eventually caught the racing bug with cyclocross and road racing. She moved through the ranks quickly, winning many pro/1/2 category races. Having struggled with her own fair share of setbacks and injury, Sofi gained the gift of sincere compassion for her fellow athletes.
Sofi considers herself a student of the sport, with an enthusiasm for continually researching training techniques, sport nutrition, sport psychology and honing innovative race strategies to help athletes ride their best.
She has a rich background in the cycling industry, including working closely with Team TIBCO-SVB professional women’s team as the Communications Director for the past several years, as well as administering VO2 metabolic testing, leading computrainer classes, and coaching gymnastics.
Sofi is a firm believer in the Achieve training philosophy and takes a holistic, supportive approach to helping athletes achieve their goals and become their best possible self.
