Build Your Skills
Last month I attended the 3 day Medicine of Cycling Bike Fit Symposium held at the USA Cycling headquarters in Colorado. As a full time bike fitter I think it vital that I continue to build my skills so as to continue to attract and retain customers.
Plus it's always great to meet more passionate bike fitters, and Fit Kit clients as well!
Presenter Andy Pruitt made a simple but solid statement with regard to building your skills as a fitter. "Start with the fundamentals and basics. Get comfortable with that. Add one fitting technology, and get competent with that before adding another technology".
Too often fitters either stop building their skills, and assume they know it all, or invest in more technology than they know what to do with.
Keep building your skills step by step. It's a journey.
