About Trackday FItness

My name is Aaron Gillies. I am the creator of  Trackdayfitness.com and the MotoFit training plan. The information provided here is for sport riders of all levels, who want to improve their riding ability by upgrading the most sophisticated and variable piece of the riding experience: themselves.

I am a nutrition and fitness coach with over 11 years of experience in the athletic training, rehabilitation and sports fitness profession. I know riders want to get stronger, but need to keep their weight in check. Larger riders can burn fat and smaller riders can get stronger. Both will become a better rider by improving cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, core strength and agility on the bike.

I am certified by Precision Nutrition and by the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA)

    Hello Aaron. I’m an exercise-performance physiologist here in Dallas. I have a platinum “fitness” client who is a moto-tracker. You’ve clearly done your homework to serve the moto-rider… Well done… DMc

      Thanks Darvin. Motorcycling is something I really enjoy. I think once recreational and pro riders realize that rider fitness can be the difference between podium and no podium it will really become a priority. Thanks for the comment! Feel free to share the website with other riders!

    I really enjoy the articles you put out on your website. I haven’t seen any recent articles or activity lately, is there any chance you will produce more articles?

    Best regards,

    Hey Aaron! Love the blog. So much so, that I routinely try to point my fellow riders here. If you take requests, I would love to see your take on pre track day stretches and how else you can prep your body for a full day of riding at the track. Keep up the good work man!

    You mentioned a 12 week fitness program. Would you mind sending that to me?

    Hi Aaron, I just came across your site – it’s fantastic that you have put this together. I love the material and the posts are delightful reads. I have just signed up for the mailing list, please forward me the track day training program if possible.

      So glad you’re enjoying it! I really enjoy riding, especially track days! Wanted to find a way to blend my hobbies with my profession as a rehab specialist. Program is on it’s way!

      Again, thanks for reading!

    Aaron, great website! I’ve been looking for something like this for some time. I signed up for the mailing list but how do I get your 12 week workout plan? Plan on entering my first race next month and have started training for it. Wish me luck…

      Thank you very much! Fitness and motorcycles are passions of mine. It is a joy to share this information to help others. The 12-week Training Plan should be in your inbox now. Enjoy!

    I coach championship level riders with their fitness and riding, and I see areas where we clearly share views. I also see where our views don’t completely match, but I guess that’s expected. Can you send your program to me as well?


    • grandprixfitness February 7, 2017 at 3:13 pm #

      Sure thing! Go ahead and sign up for our newsletter and you’ll have it emailed to you. Thanks for checking out the site! Glad it’s a help. I’d love to hear your thoughts on training.


      • ridercoach February 8, 2017 at 3:30 pm #

        Thanks. Looking forward to receiving it! Happy to discuss training. Obviously we both share the belief on how important physical fitness is for racing (or just trackday riding) and how it can be a deciding factor on who wins a race or even the championship. Naturally there are number of other elements in play, but in professional level you simply can’t ignore any of them. There are some areas in biomechanics and endurance fitness where my thinking and programs would appear to differ to an extent, but also I need to vary the programs from one individual to another as many racers simply can’t do certain exercises given their earlier injuries.

    After so many years of competitive powerlifting, this site is exactly what I’ve been looking for – so many track days ended early due to tight hips!

    How do I sign up for the newsletter to receive the program?

    Keep up the fantastic site!!

    Hi Aaron,

    I’m in my first season of road racing and although I am aerobically fit from previous sports, I am starting to hit muscle endurance issues mid race specifically in the forearm and shoulder area. Can you please send me through your training plan so I can give it a crack.
