Fast Talk Laboratories is a new coaching and education membership from the creators of the Fast Talk podcast, Chris Case and Trevor Connor. Our lab is your workshop to discover revolutionary ideas and evidence-based methods to get faster at cycling, triathlon, running, and other endurance sports.
OUR MISSION: LET’S MAKE YOU FAST.
Our program offers how-to, training concepts, skills and technique, community, group coaching, long-term mentorship, and lab-grade testing through a spectrum of online content and live events. Members of Fast Talk Labs are a vibrant community of science-minded athletes, coaches, and experts who seek to know themselves, to know the science, 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, we tap the most engaging experts, coaches, and athletes in endurance sports to share their knowledge and experience with you through our community.
The Smartest Community
130+ 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.
