FitLabPGH Features 29:20 James Lloyd




FitLabPGH is a podcast about movement and movement opportunities in the Pittsburgh, PA area.  Once a week we also highlight a FitLabPGH mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity.  The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability.  Click FitLabPGH Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.

This Week: James Lloyd

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? If so, why are you still here? I’m from Akron Ohio. My girlfriend Julie and I moved to Pittsburgh in 2016

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? I’m a mountain bike coach and personal trainer, so riding bike and weight training are my passion. I also love running with my dog Sadie

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? We just recently took a vacation to Jake’s Rocks in the Allegheny National Forest to ride bikes with the Pittsburgh based group HighSpeedDirt. It was a blast, and a beautiful destination for any lover of the outdoors

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? For long rides or hard workouts I like to eat some complex carbs about 2-3 hours before. A brown rice bowl of some kind, or sweet potatoes are my go to. I always finish a workout with a protein shake or Huel.

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. My guilty pleasure is definitely the Pronto Original Spicy Ranch Pizza from the Avalon location of Pizza Pronto. We’ve tried almost all of the local pizza establishments and I haven’t had a pizza I enjoyed more!

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? Julie and I are excited to race the Oz Trail mountain bike epic ride this October as long as it doesn’t get cancelled. The real bucket list destination would be to ride at Whistler Bike Park in British Columbia!

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? Getting people started and staying consistent for the first few weeks is the biggest hurdle! It’s much easier to make the time after you realize how much fun it is to get up and do something.

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Mountain biking for sure! I’ve traveled to so many beautiful locations, challenged myself, and met some of the most amazing, generous, and community driven people while on my bike.

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Yoga, and mobility movements! Not only are they great for recovery, but they also help your body perform better.

What is your favorite spot in Pittsburgh? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) North Park is my favorite place to move, but Pittsburgh has many amazing parks that I would encourage everyone to check out.

Robert Vano, DC- Premier Bicycle Club.




Premier Bicycle Club (PBC) was founded by nine recreational riders in the North Hills of Pittsburgh when they came together with an ambitious goal founded on a pragmatic vision. They established the Premier Bicycle Club on the tenet of offering a best-in-class bicycling club that could target a wide range of riders and their unique strengths. To live up to the name “PREMIER”, the founding members desired the club to run in a professional manner, utilize newly available technology, and offer a wide variety of local, remote-start, and multi-day rides accessible to riders of varying abilities and ambitions.  Understanding the importance of a comprehensive approach to wellness, officers and board members have promoted healthy eating at club events and encourage all to enjoy the shared experiences and camaraderie amongst other members. Since its inception, the club has experienced rapid membership growth and continues to prove it is The PREMIER Bicycle Club! We interviewed Robert Vano, D.C., Founder of the Premier Bicycle Club.

Sara Petyk- Noble Invention Bike Touring




Sara Petyk is the owner and operator of Noble Invention Bike Touring, providing self-guided bicycle tours on the best rail trails in the U.S. In 2009, Sara began offering guided walking and biking tours in Pittsburgh. Some of these tours traveled outside of town on the Great Allegheny Passage, so it was a natural next step to focus exclusively on longer bike trips through a self-guided bike tour company, formerly named Bike the GAP. Today, Noble Invention Bike Touring offers self-guided bike tours on the Great Allegheny Passage, C&O Canal Towpath, Katy Trail, Erie Canal, and Virginia Capital Trail, with more to come.

Podcast 40:18 Cathy Rogers Aero Tech Designs Cyclewear




Cathy Schnaubelt Rogers, Founder, Aero Tech Designs Cyclewear, fell in love with cycling at age 12, where she attended a girl scout camp with her spider bike. From this humble beginning, she has ridden all over the world. Cathy has bicycle toured self contained with panniers across the United States riding from Tampa, Florida up the east coast to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. She also has bicycle toured through eight European countries. The most she ever rode in one day is 140 miles!

Cathy is an avid cyclist who, with her husband recently rode across the United States from Washington state to Washington DC. She is a former USCF licensed bike racer, who cycled for the University of South Florida in many sanctioned races. In addition, she was a competitive triathlete. Cathy continues to ride in bicycle tours and organized bicycle events. Ms. Rogers describes her fascination with the bicycle as a form of neurosis or disease that she can’t shake off. She collects bike art and describes her home as a shrine to the bicycle. She says: “Riding my bicycle makes me happy” which is the essence of her love affair with the bicycle.
