The idea for MTB Fitness came into fruition on January 22nd 2016. I, the founder of MTB Fitness - Matt Mooney, posted a survey into several MTB Facebook groups offering free advice on training and nutrition for MTBers and asking what they needed help most with. Within a few hours 1,000 people had responded and the free trial software I was using stopped accepting new respondents.
My hunch was right - riders were desperate for specific training, nutrition, recovery and mindset advice. I got to work. Working for free for 18 months I put out as much helpful content as I could and created the MTB Fitness 12 Week Training Programme, the first product to launch on February 12th 2018. I spent £300 per month of my own money, for 18 months, to advertise my free content and to fund the Graphic Design for the 12wk Programme.
Since then I've been working hard to help as many mountain bikers as I possibly can become fitter, faster and stronger on the bike. MTB Fitness is built on one belief - that if I can just get riders to eat better, to train more effectively off the bike and get their recovery and their mindset right, they will enjoy riding even more and live happier lives because of it.

I gave a brief talk to a group of personal trainers and strength coaches about MTB Fitness recently. One asked me - "Do you enjoy it?"
I get to do what I love and it's all thanks to people like you that follow and support MTB Fitness. Thankyou so much to everyone who continues to follow MTB Fitness and for your continued support.
Here's to a fitter, faster and stronger you.
