OUR MISSION: LET’S MAKE YOU FAST.
Fast Talk Laboratories is a new and fast-growing sport science and coaching knowledgebase and virtual training center from the creators of the Fast Talk podcast. Our Lab has sprung from the dynamic community of coaches, experts, and athletes of the Fast Talk podcast, originally hosted by VeloNews. We tap the most engaging experts in sports, sport science, and related fields to share knowledge and experience with our members. Our athlete members, coach partners, and listeners enjoy fascinating multimedia learning experiences including deep dive Pathways, live online events, personal coaching guidance, and access to a slate of world-class athlete services. We are the home of The Craft of Coaching with Joe Friel and a coaching development and education partner of USA Cycling. Fast Talk Laboratories is based in Boulder, Colorado.
Our Virtual Training Center
We offer education, community, and expert guidance on training concepts, workouts, sports nutrition, skills and technique, long-term mentorship, and lab-grade testing through a spectrum of online content, in-person consults, and live virtual events. Members of Fast Talk Labs form a vibrant community of science-minded athletes, coaches, and experts who seek to know themselves, to know the science, to understand the why behind the how, and to get more out of endurance sports.
Our Origin Story
Fast Talk Laboratories has sprung from the dynamic community of listeners and guests of the Fast Talk podcast, originally hosted by Trevor Connor and Caley Fretz at VeloNews. Branching out from our popular podcast format, Fast Talk Labs taps the most engaging experts, coaches, and athletes in sport science to share their knowledge and experience with you through our sport science platform and community.
The Smartest Community
215+ episodes later—and now independent from VeloNews—Fast Talk has become one of the most popular podcasts in endurance sports with millions of listens and a guest list including the brightest minds in sports science like Dr. Stephen Seiler, Joe Friel, Dr. Iñigo San Millán, Dr. Andrew Pruitt, Dr. Allen Lim, Dr. Stephen Cheung, and dozens more. These experts present on topics through our Webinar and Screen Share Series. Our members come together in our forum and live events—like Zwift group rides and Live Q&A Sessions—to field questions and swap ideas. In all of endurance sports, there’s no brighter place to be than Fast Talk Laboratories.
