Mike Barthelemy

If the best American riders have an optimal physical condition, it is because they went through the hands of Mike Barthelemy, the most popular sports coach of the East Coast. Every winter, he settles in Wellington to optimize their performance on the saddle. Based in Florida, Mike is living of his passion for fitness and healthy lifestyle in parallel to his model career. Specialized in riders’ physical training, his first pupil remains his wife Liubov Kocheteva, Russian Olympic rider.

Hello Melinda,

I prefer training in lululemon and Nike at the gym as far as on the saddle I’m not sure that might be better for a rider to guide you on that!


Hello Levis,

On the saddle most riders work their lower back a lot , and also the legs such as hamstrings.
Most riders think riding is a workout which is not it’s more like a sport so to get better on the saddle and to become a better and stronger rider you have to strengthen the muscles that’s doing all the wearing and tearing such as your lower back , core , shoulders and legs , Glute , hamstrings , and work on your hip flexibility as well.
