Jason Boynton M.S. is a PhD candidate in Exercise and Sports Science, a USA Cycling level 1 certified coach (the highest level of certification available for U.S. coaches), and an elite level cyclist who has been competing in endurance events since 2001.

Jason has been coaching endurance athletes since 2007. Applied science, critical thinking, and skepticism are the bases of his methodology. He is an analytical problem solver who thinks outside the box. He also prides himself on the connection and communication he maintains with his athletes.

He currently attends Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia, where he is attending on an international scholarship. His research interests are in cycling performance, thermoregulation during endurance exercise, and what happens when athletes travel to different hemispheres to participate in international competition. His academic advisor is associate professor Chris Abbiss.

Jason’s prior educational background includes a Masters in Exercise Physiology from Eastern Michigan University and an honors degree in Cell Biology & Physiology from UW- Whitewater. During his masters degree he studied under Professor and USA Cycling Faculty member Stephen McGregor. It is here he laid the groundwork for much of his coaching philosophy. As a researcher, he started working with trained endurance athletes in a lab setting in 2005. This has given him extensive experience and insight working with athletes above and beyond coaching.

Besides coaching and doing research, Jason enjoys writing about and presenting topics in science that are relevant to cyclists. He writes for TrainingPeaks, the Wisconsin Cycling Association Expert Panel, and his own blog. He has had featured articles in USA Cycling’s and Cycling Australia’s monthly emails. He also presents webinars for USA Cycling that provide continuing education units for other certified coaches.
