Steve Carmichael - RRCA-USATF Running Coach

RRCA certified running coach


Welcome! Steve here.

This site is for runners who have careers, families, and busy lives yet want to be the best runner they can be.

In other words, we want to improve the quality of our lives, enjoy running, feel amazing, and become the best version of ourselves we can. If this sounds like you, you are in the right place.

I offer 1:1 run and strength/fitness coaching and since 2011, have personally coached hundreds of athletes from complete beginners to competitive runners of all ages and race distances.

Be sure to check out our articles and podcasts on running, strength training, nutrition, mindset, injury prevention, habits, and more.

My coaching goes way beyond just writing a custom training plan and throwing you some links to YouTube strength exercises. Everything is 100% customized and changes each week based on real progress.

My coaching philosophy is that everyone is a runner regardless of speed and ability and most do not come close to their potential. Most have simply plateaued.

Therefore, I use evidence-based training methodologies to create a complete framework for high degrees of success that includes strength training, running, injury prevention and mediation, improved adherence to exercise and fitness habits, mindset, nutrition, and more.

I have gone beyond just a “weekend of coaching certification” to continue my education by attending advanced clinics with some of the world’s best coaches and trainers. Regardless of where you live, I can work with you to help you achieve the results you want to achieve.

Contact me if you have any questions, or would like to work with me.
