The Run For Performance Difference

We have years of experience and our coaches are certified through certifying agencies and organizations like NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine),  USA Track and Field, the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), to name a few.

Each coach frequently attends training to stay up to date with the latest training principles in sports performance. Each coach is supportive and motivating and we use positive reinforcement techniques over yelling and screaming. We build our clients up. Never tear them down.

We have coached 100's of athletes of all ages and fitness levels from complete beginners to Boston Marathoners and state and regional finalists.

We strongly believe that our athlete's success comes from our diverse approach to customizing our programs to each athlete's uniqueness. Successful training must include aspects that go beyond any workout or the training plan itself. Aspects like nutrition, strength training, flexibility and mobility, injury prevention awareness, positive mindset and favorable lifestyle habits like proper sleep and stress management all play an critical role. You don't have to be perfect, you just have to strive to be better each day. We work with you 1:1 to help you improve in all of these areas.

Unlike many programs out there, we do not use generic canned training plans and spreadsheets.  We customize everything 100% based on each athlete's individual situation and goals. We frequently make small adjustments and modifications based on real data or observations from your workout data or feedback so you can realize your true potential.

We provide your workout plan using our software platform and mobile app so you know exactly what do so on the days that you aren't working with us directly, or to reach out to your coach at any time.

Run For Performance is a proud member of USA Track and Field as well as a supporter of many local schools athletic boosters. We believe in the power of sport and athletics and want to make sure everyone has access to the benefits that sport and exercise has to offer.

Track and Cross Country Coaching

We work with track and cross country athletes to help prepare them for their season. Off-season training is critical to develop an athlete's speed and endurance.

5k Training | Half Marathon Training | Marathon Training

We can train any runner regardless of experience, race distance or goal.  Since 2014, we have helped hundreds of local and online athletes run local and out of state such as: 

  • The Columbus Marathon and Half Marathon
  • The Cap City Half and Quarter Marathon
  • The Air Force Half and Full Marathon
  • The Flying Pig Half and Full Marathon
  • The Cleveland Half and Full Marathon
  • The Boston Marathon
  • The Chicago Marathon
  • All Major Disney Races
  • The New York Marathon
  • 100's of 5k and 10k races, even Ultramarathons!

Off Season Sports Conditioning For All Sports

We don't just work with runners. We work with athletes from every sport on physical fitness conditioning, speed, agility and strength. We don't coach skills like hitting a baseball, or dribbling a soccer ball, but we work to prepare the athlete for their sports season by making them stronger, faster and able to perform with more endurance.

Police, Fire and Military PT Test Preparation

Are you looking to pass your next physical fitness test? If so, we can help. We have been helping recruits and active duty members of our military prepare for the job. 

Triathlon Coaching (Coming Soon)

We are in the process of adding a new Triathlon coach to the team, so be on the lookout for private triathlon coaching to start in early 2022 to include swim, bike, and run coaching. We can help with the run portion of your triathlon now.
