I started Endurance Company in 2010. When I started ECo, it served two purposes:
- I had just retired from competitive racing. I competed internationally as a track & field athlete (400m and 800m), raced triathlon at the professional level. Coaching helped me stay involved in the endurance world and give back to a sport that had given me so much.
- I had been coaching since 1996, but never in a “professional” role. I have a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology and a doctorate in Biomedical Science, I’ve worked with Olympic training programs, and worked with a number of high-performance athletes and coaches. ECo provided me a platform to reach athletes and relate many of the things I learned.
I spent the first half of my life pursuing athletic excellence. I studied with world experts, I trained with Olympians, world champions, and elite athletes, I earned a master’s and doctorate degree so I could understand the science behind my athletic experiences. I went “all in” on being the best athlete I could be.I spent the last 10 years working on ways to apply the lessons I learned to adult athletes. I still strive for athletic excellence, even though it looks different now than it did 20 years ago. Each of us approaches this sport with different backgrounds, priorities, and goals. It is my job as a coach to meet you where you are and help you be the best athlete you can be. Because of this, there is no one-size-fits all program and definitely no one-size-fits all advice.
