Coaches are always faced with choices. You can take the familiar route and do what you have always done, following the crowd and yielding to conventional wisdom. It’s easy, and there’s no risk involved—unless you consider long-term stagnation a risk.
My approach to endurance run training is a bit different. I use conventional wisdom as a starting point and proceed from there to develop innovative training programs for runners who want to turn their potential into desired results.
But my approach to training is more than just change for the sake of change. Being innovative keeps me alert and involved with the latest research and applications of scientific training principles in combination with my 16 years of coaching and a lifetime of personal athletic competition.
For me, the goal is to develop complete athletes, ready to perform up to their potential and exceed their expectations. I am the author of The Cool Impossible and my approach to training has been featured in the New York Times best seller Born To Run, Runner's World, Competitor Magazine, Men's Running (UK), NY Times, BBC World News, Men’s Health, Esquire, Men’s Journal and Ski Magazine; specific workouts have been featured on ESPN’s Cold Pizza.
As the former Director of Fitness at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, I’m a certified Functional Training Specialist, a Certified Sports Hypnotist, and have held coaching certifications from both USA Triathlon and USA Cycling.
My pledge and goal is to help you improve by providing the tools that will make you better—faster than you ever thought possible. I can help you cultivate speed, endurance, power and strength. All you need to supply is the intrinsic desire and drive to improve—the motivation to compete at a higher level.
