Overtrained, discouraged, and lacking a social life because of 20- and 30-hour training weeks during 1982 and 1983, Niles began to look for a better way. While earning an MA in physical education (with an exercise physiology concentration) from Sonoma State University (SSU), he developed his training system. He also taught assessment and conditioning classes for the general student population at SSU and for track and cross-country athletes.
Niles consults and designs training schedules for athletes all over the world. In addition to writing a software program called Performance Progress Plus, which assesses fitness levels and creates race projections for swimming, cycling, and running, Niles has written articles on training for Runners World, Bicycling, and numerous regional publications. He is a regular contributor to Inside Triathlon, Triathlete, and Triathlon Sports in Australia.
Niles lives in Santa Rosa, California. In his free time he enjoys sailing, skiing, and spending time with his wife, Diane, and son, Kevin.pdf
