The Run For Performance Difference

Our coaches have years of experience and 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.

 Our coaches frequently attend advanced training to learn about the most up to date training principles and hone their skills. Each coach is supportive and motivating and we use positive reinforcement over yelling and screaming. We build our clients up. Not 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 believe that an athlete's success comes not from any one workout but through our diverse approach to customize our programs to each athlete's uniqueness. Successful training must include aspects that go beyond the workout. Aspects like nutrition, strength training, flexibility, injury prevention, mindset and positive lifestyle habits like sleep, stress management and recovery all play an important role. We work with athletes 1:1 to help them 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 each workout so that you can realize your true potential.

If available, we use data from GPS devices or fitness apps to analyze your workout metrics and provide feedback so that we can further tweak your training program. 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.

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.
