Welcome! Steve here.

This site is for runners with careers, families, and busy lives, yet who 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.

Here, you can expect hundreds of free resources like articles, race guides, podcast episodes, and even runner-friendly recipes to fuel your training.

I also offer 1:1 run and strength/fitness coaching and, since 2011, I have personally coached 1000+ individuals and groups, from complete beginners to competitive runners of all ages and race distances.

My coaching goes way beyond just writing you a custom training plan and throwing you some links to YouTube videos. 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, yet most do not come close to their potential. If this sounds like you, simple adjustments to training and nutrition can break you out of your plateau.

I use evidence-based training methodologies to create a complete framework that leads runners of all levels to a high degree of success. My training includes strength training, running, injury prevention, nutrition counseling, form analysis, and if necessary, mediation. I also work with you on exercise adherence and helping you make healthy habits that stick.

I have gone beyond just a “weekend of coaching certification” by attending advanced training 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 want to work with me.
