Dee Tidwell knew from an early age that he didn’t want to be a desk jockey. He resolved to take control of his own future and always own his own business. His path to athletic conditioning began in college when he switched his major from communications to exercise physiology. After a few years excelling as a personal training at fitness clubs in Denver, he started his first business, Elite In Home Personal Training.
During this time Dee was still following his passion and racing downhill mountain bikes. It was 2002 and at one of these races that he met Missy Giove, who became his first professional athlete client. This led to introductions to professional motocross racers, professional golfers, winter X-Games athletes, and even Olympians. The professional athletes Dee has worked with have gone on to win numerous titles, championships and Olympic medals.
In 2013, Dee decided he wanted to make his knowledge and training more accessible to all mountain bikers, including Enduro racers, Dowhillers, 4x and XC athletes, and created Enduro MTB Training, and is now the “official soft tissue therapist and condoning coach for Yeti Cycles and the Big Mountain Enduro series.”
