Originally from Colorado, I’m now based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I offer personal coaching for local and remote athletes seeking individualized guidance for running, triathlon and mountain-oriented endurance adventures. I love working with athletes seeking personal growth through self-defined challenges, whether those involve races (e.g. Ironman 70.3, 50K trail runs) or solo adventures (e.g. fast-packing, mountaineering objectives). I also coach swimming for Menlo Masters in Menlo Park.
Adam Hodges, PhD, holds credentials from USA Triathlon and the American College of Sports Medicine. He began running in his youth and racing triathlons in high school. He enjoys passing on the knowledge and experience he has gained over the years to both new and experienced athletes seeking to maximize enjoyment, competitiveness and longevity in endurance sports.
As a USAT All-American triathlete, he competed in the ITU World Triathlon Championships, the ITU World Duathlon Championships and the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. As a masters runner, he won a series title in the XTERRA SoCal Trail Run Series. His current pursuits include trail running, climbing, mountaineering and cross-country skiing—he recently ran around Mont Blanc, summitted Mount Rainier and did the Mount Everest Marathon.
“The allure of endurance sports for me has always been about more than the competition,” he says. “Endurance sports provide a way to explore the beauty of our world and learn about ourselves in the process.”
He coached masters swimmers in Colorado for over a decade, coached high school cross country and track runners in California, and currently coaches masters swimmers and triathletes in Menlo Park.
Adam’s training approach is summarized in his book, “The Triathlete’s Training Guide.” He believes that the ultimate reward of training is the continual process of self-discovery and personal growth that arises out of athletic challenges.
