"A visual perspective of my progress since I’ve started training under the guidance of coach Filippo Schmitt Barbieri. When I started in June 2015 I weighed 257 pounds. Today I’m down to 225 pounds and my fitness has more than doubled. Filippo truly takes his work personally as demonstrated on numerous occasions by him taking the time to attend to the details that truly make training under him a personalized experience instead of the assembly line one size fits all approach I’ve experienced with some other coaches. He has truly exceeded my expectations while helping me to exceed my own. Thanks for all you do coach."

"Filippo Barbieri, I would like to thank you for the past two plus years that you have been coaching me. Initially my goal was just to get into better shape to be able to ride the bike and not feel beat up after. Shortly after we started training together there were noticeable differences in my ability on the bike, and still to this day I continually feel better and stronger every time I get on the bike. You have not only provided me with the knowledge to make myself better and stronger, you have inspired me to keep on facing challenges and overcome them. I cannot express my gratitude enough for getting me back on the mountain bike after many years of just road biking, as well as inviting me to be a part of the SpeedLab Mountain bike team. I am proud to call you my Coach and friend!!"
