Rod is the most knowledgeable trainer and nutrition expert that I have ever met. Every encounter I've had with Rod and Dogma has exceeded my expectations and I look forward to visiting the club soon.M.B.
Fantastic trip. It gets better and better each year. Final tally: 300 miles, 20,000 feet of climbing over 5 days. You and your hand-picked team are awesome. Thank you for another great experience.Jonathan L.
Thank you for an amazing trip. Really enjoyed our ride yesterday. I couldn't get over the vistas!Peter S.
Rod, you're a freakin' Pro. No one does it better. Thanks to your whole team.Bobby C.
Really a first-class experience with a warm, home cooked feel. The Vail/Aspen annual trip is a summer highlight.Ricky S.
Thanks to Rod's cycling tips, I've had a major breakthrough in my strength and endurance and NO cramps after some tough days and miles on the bike. It felt almost miraculous to me like some hidden power was uncovered. I can't thank or praise Rod highly enough!S.V.
Rod prepared the group with yoga poses that opened up areas we didn't know existed. The yoga is amazing and very specialized for biking and it gets you in a very peaceful spot before the ride. Post-ride, the camp's Chef was waiting with an all-natural, 100% organic, gluten-free and, of course, vegan replenishing shake. After chugging it, we showered up, had an amazing lunch and then great massages. Now that I’m back in NYC in the sweltering heat, I yearn for the house, the chef, the rides, the yoga, the peacefulness and the camaraderie.Michael Zimmerman, CEO at Prentice Capital Management, L.P.
The routes taken, the dinners, the entire weekend were truly one of a kind…I will be savoring it all week. Thanks to Rod, Josh and Brendan for your patience and encouragement. I feel like I had my own personal training team and it really helped my descending. I hope to spend a lot more time 'in the drops' going forward.Gavin H. Wolfe, Partner, Evergreen Capital, L.P.
The amount of progress I have made in my cycling in a relatively short period of time working with Rod and his staff at Dogma Athletica far exceeded my expectations. I push myself to new levels and I can really mix it up in the group rides.Jesse Fink, Founder, Priceline
I have searched both coasts and everywhere between for a coach or trainer with the knowledge and skill set of Rod Connolly. It isn't just the training center and culture he has created in Vail. He has an innate ability to deliver the information and motivate me to get the most out of my workouts whether I am in New York or San Francisco. This is anything but a cookie-cutter coaching program.Dave Ferguson, Partner, Perella Weinberg Partners
Rod Connolly has created a remarkable training center in the Vail area. He has a unique ability to understand the body and how to bring that to your cycling. It is the most scientifically sound coaching platform I have seen...with a very personal, human delivery.Dr. Russell Hirsch, Partner, Prospect Venture Capital
I contacted Rod Connolly after receiving an entry to the Leadville 100. My goal was just to finish in the allotted 12-hour time limit. He created a workable training program around my life, built a complete nutritional plan and helped me become a better all around athlete. In 7 months of working together using his Specific Demand strategies I lost 42 lbs of body fat, increased my threshold wattage by over 30 watts and completed Leadville in 9:13. I was able to do this while running a busy surgical practice and parenting two young children. This coaching works.Dr. Greg Poulter, Surgical Spine Specialist, Vail-Summit Orthopaedics
