PaceBuilders™ is a complete 1:1 coaching program that takes your unique fitness ability along with your personal goals and makes them a reality.

PaceBuilders™ is a highly personalized 1:1 coaching program that takes your unique situation and builds a comprehensive fitness and training program built around getting you the results you want. We get results because we tailor our programs to you instead of giving you canned, generic training plans. We know time is your most valuable asset and we want to make sure you get the most effective use of your time.

Inside PaceBuilders™, we go beyond generic plans or general running tips and look at other factors that maximize your results above and beyond a training calendar. Things like nutrition, fueling, injury prevention, stress, work/life balance, mindset and so much more.

We build PaceBuilders™ around you

We work with adults of any age, experience or fitness level who want to use running to transform their health and fitness lifestyle. Inside PaceBuilders™ we don't just 'teach you how to run', or give you a training plan. Instead, we build a complete running and cross training program build around your lifestyle, your time schedule, your goals and what YOU want to get out of running.

Some runners join PaceBuilders™ to train for their first 5k, half marathon or marathon. Others work on improving their existing ability to run faster, farther, or as part of an overall weight loss program. Some runners join PaceBuilders™ to be held accountable and find someone who will help them just get their butt out the door. Since YOU are who we focus on, YOU pick your goals and we customize to you.

How does PaceBuilders™ work?

After signing up for PaceBuilders™, we work together to take a complete history of your running and fitness background. We then create measurable, attainable goals, and determine the best path forward. We then develop a detailed training program, with specific workout instructions to best help you meet those goals. As you go through your training, we work with you to refine and dial in on what is working best so over time, your training becomes even more efficient. Everything a generic training plan can't do.

PaceBuilders™ evolves as you do.

Unlike, generic training plans, PaceBuilders™ continually adapts to you. You will have the flexibility to run any race, change your goals throughout the year, and have your training adjust as your life does. You may have experienced a time in your life when you became sick or injured, or had a life event like having a baby or job change. With PaceBuilders™,your program changes as your life does, so you are always maximizing your success.

PaceBuilders™ gets rid of boring training calendars and spreadsheets.

Once your plan has been created, you will have access to detailed workout instructions and web based training calendars that include features like workout tracking and logging. All of which can be access through the included web and mobile app. Track your workouts, or upload/sync your GPS data between Garmin Connect or Strava.

We will review your workouts each week and give feedback within the built-in messaging system.

PaceBuilders™ video library

Inside PaceBuilders™ you have access to hours of training videos consisting of cross training exercises that you can use to strengthen your legs and core, as well as videos to improve speed, reduce chance of injury, increase flexibility, mobility, and balance. There are also videos on fueling for your runs so you have energy late in a race. You can learn about nutrition for running such as: what to eat and when to eat it for best results, and how to hydrate properly. You can also watch videos on mental training, fitness mindset, race strategies and weight loss.
