Coach / Torrance, California
“Steve was my first coach and really helped me overall both physically and mentally. He is patient, encouraging, knowledgeable and inspiring, and I went from a 194 pound slouch to a 154 pound lean bike racer. He coached me both in the gym and on the bike as well as nutrition, and he called me out when I needed it. He made a very positive impact on my life. I then applied the lessons learned to my business and blew that out as well.”
Steve Ehasz is a Level 2 USA Cycling Coach with a BS in Sports Medicine from Salisbury University. He has dedicated more than 25 years bridging the gap between the science and practice of becoming a stronger, faster and more resilient cyclist. Working with novices and master’s riders he realized that if his athletes’ muscles were weak, that they were slower no matter how aerobically fit they were. His ability to weave innovative and proven cycling-specific weight and power training on the bike and in the gym to produce more power for longer periods of time have been essential to the short- and long-term success of Steve and his athletes.
Since power is what separates the best from the rest, Steve designs cycling specific programs aimed at improving power, decreasing total workout time, improving form, reducing injury risks and staving off the decline in muscle and bone mass (sarcopenia & osteoporosis). As a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist and Certified Lifestyle Wellness Coach, Steve has trained athletes of all ages, including many high-level professionals from a multitude of sports.
Steve enjoys the process of connecting with each cycling athlete to design and implement a program to help each client to reach his/her ultimate goals. There are many facets to a comprehensive program, and helping you both learn and put everything into practice is key to finding success with your program. Teaching the science behind cycling, how to gain an appreciation for working and “suffering” on the bike, and the importance of targeted strength training are key areas of strength for Steve. Collaborating with clients to achieve their goals is what Steve lives for as a coach.
In addition to his lifelong passion for health, fitness, and performance nutrition, Steve has been a passionate cyclist since he was a young child racing BMX in New Jersey. Wanting to enhance his off-season ice hockey conditioning in college, Steve found himself on his road bike more and more, which naturally led to his first road race and subsequent love for road bike racing. After quickly moving through the categories, Steve has been a Pro/1/2 racer, and now races masters as well as the occasional Pro/1/2 race to gauge his fitness. He is known for constantly pushing himself to find new levels of performance, speed and awareness while having a deep love for all things cycling.

Steve has taught advanced cycling coach training courses as a lecturer at International Health, Racquet and Sports Club Association conferences. As a leader and coach for the University of Maryland Medical System, Maryland Athletic Club, and Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine, he developed human performance programs for cancer patients, professional athletes and weekend warriors. During his career Steve has been a featured guest on national television discussing topics such as the “benefits of metabolic testing” and “nutrition and exercise for the entire family.” He has created physician symposiums on “Exercise Is Medicine.”
When Steve isn’t designing new training programs or out logging time in the saddle, he loves spending time with his wife and son. You will also find him in the kitchen creating healthy meals for his family, coaching his son at the BMX track, or consulting with international health and wellness organizations. An athlete at heart, Steve considers his life journey to be his greatest ride.
