Welcome to Wisconsin Indoor Cycling.
Meet our Great Coaches!
Coach Zeus is excited to be back for a eighth year. Coach Zeus thrives on hard work and dedication while helping his athletes reach their goals.
Coach Zeus was raised in Janesville, WI and was a three - sport athlete in high school; soccer, basketball, and track. He lettered in Varsity as a freshmen in the 400 meter dash, was a team leader in all three sports, and earned many academic scholarships leading into college. He earned his Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin - Madison and has a Masters of Science in Counseling from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. While he likes to play hard ball, he's also very understanding of the athlete's needs. But rarely does he tolerate whining!
Coach Zeus says he models his coaching after Coach K from Duke University Basketball; "I like to know why the athlete does what he/she does. I want to get inside their heads, push them, yet I expect the athlete to possess a sense of accountability." As a USAT certified coach, Z has led athletes to successful finishes in 5K's, Ironman's, and everything in between. Coach Zeus is looking forward to kicking off another great season of indoor cycling!
Outside of WIC and full-time coaching, coach Z works as a therapist specializing in counseling teens, families, drug and alcohol addictions, eating disorders, and depression. He can also be found eating steak tacos at almost any time of the day.
