Performance Training for the Everyman
Beyond Endurance's mission is to help the beginner to intermediate level endurance athlete connect the dots between their dreams and reality.

How Coaching Works
We work together to set your goals
Regardless of where you are starting from, whether it’s a challenge from a friend or a longtime dream that you are finally ready to embark upon, we will sit down together to talk about your goals, find out what really makes you excited about them, and set some milestones for the journey ahead.
We put those goals in the context of your everyday life
Once we’ve ironed out some concrete goals and milestones, it’s time to talk about how to make them fit inside of your existing life. Unless you are a bonafide professional athlete, you have other obligations to juggle that will impact your training. We want to take a deep look at that and create a plan that fits as well as possible into your existing life. This builds the foundation for the consistency that will get you where you want to go.
We create a plan, and support it with regular coach contact
Once we have put your goals into the context of your daily life, it is then time to handcraft the training that will get you to your event ready to roll. The hard work of planning is done! All you have to do is show up and put in the work. It doesn’t just stop at a plan, though. Training, just like life, has its ups and downs, with plot twists along the way. That’s why you will be in regular contact with your coach, so you can stay accountable and adjust course as needed to stay on track.
"Training should work with your life, not totally disrupt it. That's the only way to create the consistency needed to make your dreams a reality"
