Innovative coaching. Old-school grit.

Whether you want to start running or to crush a PR, a running coach can help you meet your goal. When you put in the sweat equity, you get results. Gerard will help you get faster, stronger, and to your goal race on healthy legs.

The work starts before your first training run. After you complete a brief Athlete Questionnaire outlining your current fitness level, past injuries, and race goal, Gerard will create a personalized training plan that ends with your desired race date.

There is no right age to start thinking of your next running goal, there is only the right time. That’s today.

After just a few months of working with Gerard, I PRd in the half marathon by 7 minute. I’ve been running for 15 years, followed training plans online, and even worked as an assistant XC coach for four years, but there’s nothing like having your own personal coach. I tend to do my best with regular accountability and communication. As a busy working mom, I had some fear (and guilt) about investing the time and money to work with a running coach, but I’m so glad I did. Gerard will work with your schedule and take the time to really get to know you. I fully recommend him as a coach if you’re looking to improve your running and do something good for yourself.

Coach G has taken my running to another level. When I reached out for coaching, I was hitting a plateau trying to PR my half marathon time. Since working with Gerard and Sweat Equity Running, I have gone from a 2:25-2:30 half marathoner to a several time sub-2 hour half marathoner.
