TotalCyclist Announces Tonya Clark as new Personal Coach



Charlotte, NCTotalCyclist is pleased to announce that Tonya Clark has joined the Personal Coaching Staff at TotalCyclist, effective immediately.


Tonya has always been very athletic and spent a lifetime participating in many different team sports before being introduced to the world of triathlons at the age of 42.

In 2015, she completed the Ramblin Rose super sprint triathlon after training with Tri It For Life and was hooked! She wanted to get faster on the bike, so she joined TotalCyclist as an athlete and after only a year she saw the amazing difference the program made. She has since then completed many different cycling events; swim races and triathlons including several 70.3 distance triathlons and will be moving on to the 140.6-mile full Ironman distance with TotalCyclist in her toolkit.   She believed in the TotalCyclist program so much that in December 2017 she joined the staff as a coach, at the Touchstone location, to help give back everything she has learned.

As a mentor for Tri It For Life, she enjoys introducing women to a healthier lifestyle by training for their first triathlon and as a coach for TotalCyclist, She loves helping people move to the next level. With firsthand experience, she champions that TotalCyclist is for everyone and not just the elite athlete.

When Tonya is not swimming, biking or running, she loves to hike and recently was introduced to backpacking.  So, if she is not training or coaching, she will probably be camping in the woods somewhere.

Tonya: “I am very excited about becoming a Personal Coach with TotalCyclist. I have seen this program change lives and help people achieve their personal goals. I can't wait to be a part of the team that makes those dreams happen”

TotalCyclist Co-Owner Chad Andrews: “ We are very excited to have Tonya come aboard as a Personal Coach. She will be instrumental in developing our wellness and endurance coaching. Tonya showed us just how passionate she was about working with people, as a Training Center Coach. We are very happy she is now a Personal Coach.”

TotalCyclist is your premier multi-sport training resource. We offer a variety of services that will make you a better, faster and smarter endurance athlete. We are very particular about “Creating Exceptional Experiences” through Wellness and Lifestyle enhancement.

Reaching the top or falling short?

Reaching the top or falling short?

Success. How do you measure it. How do you quantify it? This is such a huge question and the answers…well can be tricky. We find in our daily lives or in training that sometimes success …just can’t be quantified.

TotalCyclist Camps has really been on a growth trajectory. Sometimes good. Sometimes bad. I wanted to really develop a sense and a pulse of where the camps stand in our business. So, I decided to challenge the biggest asset to our Camps…Dr. Christy (Rocket) Keely…to her discomfort zone. Unknown!

Hello all. Well, let us introduce you to some “Hippie Shit”. Yeah, that’s what one of our clients called it. Guess what? It works.

According to Zuberant life…on a recent look into meditation for endurance athletes it does several things:

Racers in India - The different ways to the top

Cycling in India is being loved by commuters and racers alike. A lot of the population enjoys this way of fitness.

The road racing community is growing and a lot of riders look for various opportunities to make a living out of racing in India, only to fizzle out in the larger scheme of things as the sport is at a very growing stage in the country.

DudeCamp? DivaCamp? Even more.....!

Coming This Fall….

We (@TotalCyclist) have been asked over the years on why we just have cycling camps for “Women”. Truth be told, we’ve never had a women’s only policy, it was just that we felt that there was, and still is, a tremendous niche in the growing population that is female cycling.

Men, and women, have attended DivaCamps in the past. Now we feel it’s time for a unique concept. WE will call it Dude Camp. Here’s the rub. All of camps are NON exclusive. Yes, we realize that women do enjoy the company of other female cyclists when riding. We also realize that men enjoy the company of other men. when riding. Half wheel the hell out of each other. (Men and women).

Coming in the next few months is a new property, in the high mountains, that TotalCyclist will be using for some really challenging climbing camps. This will be for women, men, couples and a mix.

For continuity sake we will offer several different kinds of Camps.

DudeCamp: Kind of a Beer, bourbon, bikes, for the gentlemen.

DivaCamp: This continues the concept of

Dudes and Divas: This will be .a huge mix of camps that would appeal to both! Running, cycling, triathlon and more. These will be half, one, and several day camps.

So, if you and your friends. (Dudes of Divas) want to have an epic experience with the best coaching team for any kind of Camp…reach out to us. We value suggestions on types of camps as well.

Thanks much!
