The Run For Performance Difference

Experience and industry-leading certifications

Coaching is more than a “weekend certification” for us. We have years of experience, and our coaches are certified through certifying agencies and organizations like NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine),  Precision Nutrition, National Strength and Conditioning Association, USA Track and Field, the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), and more.

Each coach stays up to date by frequently attending advanced training, clinics, and continuing education training to ensure they are always up to date with the latest principles in sports performance. 

All coaches are First Aid/CPR/AED certified and undergo nationwide criminal background checks and SafeSport certification.

Individual, Evidence-Based Training

We strongly believe that our athlete’s success comes from our 12+ years of experience that follows periodized, evidence-based training methodologies. Each athlete is unique, so our training must be customized to each person to see the best results.

We customize everything 100% based on each athlete’s situation and goals. This allows us to make small adjustments and modifications based on real data and athlete feedback. We don’t just give you a bunch of workouts and tell you to follow our plan.

We are invested in each athlete and make the time to prepare outside of our sessions, so your session is targeted for what needs done that day.

Unlike many programs, we do not use generic, canned training plans and spreadsheets or group a bunch of kids together in small groups, giving parents the illusion that running around doing random exercises in a gym is making them faster.

Training without focus and planning is exercise. It will make you healthy. But likely, it only leads to mediocre results.

We build athletes up, not tear them down

Each coach is non-judgmental, caring, supportive, and motivating. Every athlete has down days and weeks. Not every workout will be perfect. We work to get the best out of every workout so that progress is still made.

Instead of yelling, we use positive reinforcement techniques that allow our athletes to build a fire and drive that comes from within.

We are vested in your success!

We support our community and schools where we live and work

Run For Performance financially supports many local schools’ athletic boosters. We believe in the power of sport and athletics and want to make sure everyone, regardless of ability, race, gender, or background, has access to the benefits that sport has to offer. 

All coaching sessions are held in Lewis Center, Ohio.

We are based in Lewis Center. However, we coach athletes from all over Central Ohio.
