OACHING PHILOSOPHY
Each person is an experiment of one. We
believe in personalized programs that focus on the individual needs of each runner. These programs work to improve weaknesses while building on strengths. Through a planned and periodized approach to training, we strive to keep athletes healthy and training consistently. We challenge each runner to reach beyond their present fitness to the next level.

No single program works for everyone. We take specific information about you and design a program just for you, built to answer your individual needs. We'll work with you to build a training regime to fit you as a runner within your lifestyle.

We strongly believe in aerobic strength and conditioning to build a base on which to begin specific training pointed at clearly defined goals. Our training program works toward long term development based on sound physiological principles and years of personal experience both as athletes and as coaches.

Our approach to coaching is the combined result of 60 years of running. We have been enthusiastic participants and students of the sport. We have been very successful competitors at a number of levels from international competition to local racing.

Additionally, we have spent countless hours discussing training principles with both the past greats and present names in the running scene. Such mentors, friends and colleagues include:Arthur Lydiard, John Davies, Dr. Dave Martin, Damien Koch, Lee Courkamp, Kim Jones, Keith Brantly, Ann Audain, Libbie Hickman, John Bowden, Les and Barbara Alm, John Campbell, Jane Welzel, Jeff Potter, Bob Brustad, Toni Hodgkinson, Robbie Johnston and many more. More importantly, however, we have worked with hundreds of athletes who range in ability from beginners to world class. Our knowledge is grounded in both sound scientific literature and personal experience. We bring that experience to assisting you in developing a program that will maximize your individual potential.

We want to teach you to coach yourself. We encourage questions and feedback and want you to understand not only how to train correctly but why each workout is important. We want to teach you how to make running a fitness activity that returns healthy benefits your entire life.

Running is a very important part of who we are and we hope to make it an important part of who you are. We find challenge and simple joy from the daily routine of training and competing. We cannot imagine a life that does not include the weekly long run and sessions that stretch our anaerobic ability and ultimately our speed. Whether you are seven or seventy, fitness is good for you and whatever you do. But running is not all of who we are, nor is it the single defining characteristic for you. Our programs strive to achieve performance that balances with all the other parts of who you are.
