our philosophy

Athletes first

We are first and foremost committed to our athletes - their health, happiness, and wellbeing comes before all else.


We believe in promoting the balance of an athlete's life. We want to help you fit your training into your life, not the other way around


We believe that all runners chasing a goal deserve equal treatment. All athletes are different, and our differences are important and can make us stronger.​

Happy Runners

Since 2015 we have been coaching men and women ranging in experience from novice to sub-elite, training for distances from the 800 up to ultramarathons.

We are David and Rosa — two east coast natives now located in Colorado with a passion for all things running. Having met through the Denver running community, we immediately found common ground in coaching. After hours spent discussing our different coaching styles and similar coaching values, we decided to build a personal coaching platform together. We continue to learn from one another and believe our unique combination of styles, methodology, and passion creates a beneficial and supportive platform for our athletes.
