More About Coach Andrew

I have worked with Middle School to Collegiate athletes, volunteered as a high school coach for both Track & Field and Cross Country, and have been a personal trainer for 15+ years. I have extensive knowledge of speed, agility, HIIT, and sport-specific drills. I am passionate about giving back to the sport that has given him so much and helping athletes achieve their goals!

I hold a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science Education and a Masters Degree in Sports Management from The Ohio State University. In addition, I am a USATF Level 1 Certified Coach, NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and American Red Cross CPR/First Aid/AED certified.

I have been running competitively for over 25 years. I ran Cross Country (sub 15-minute 5K) and Track & Field (sub 1:55 800m, sub 4:30 1600m) throughout my schooling as well as competed in swimming. Over the years, I added in more swimming, cycling, and triathlons, but I have always come back to running as the primary pursuit.

From 2011 to present, I have been focused on ultramarathon running. I have completed six out of eight 100-mile runs attempted and over 30 other ultramarathon distance events.

Most notable race finishes in running include, Glass City Marathon (2005), Columbus Marathon (5 time finisher), Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon (2006), Suntrust National Marathon (2006), Charleston Marathon (2 time finisher), Wambaw Swamp Stomp 50-Mile (4 time finisher), The North Face Endurance Challenge 50-Mile Georgia (3 time finisher), Chattanooga Mountain Stage Race (2 time finisher), Pinhoti 100 Mile Endurance Run (2 time finisher), Burning River 100 Mile Endurance Run (2014), Quest for the Crest 50K (2015), Grindstone 100 Mile Endurance Run (2015), and the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run (2016), Javelina 100 (2017).

Track & Field sessions are 100% tailored to the athlete, their discipline, and the appropriateness of the season. Each session starts with a dynamic warm-up that involves running, stretching, drills and strength exercises. The core of the workout may consist of intervals or more drills to fine-tune performance. To end, the session will include a focus on core strength and proper stretching.

Client Reviews

I am a Lifelong athlete and just Two sessions in with Andrew and cannot believe how little I actually knew about running and getting faster. Anyone who wants to improve, learn, and run better should book some time on the track with him!

Couch Andrew was very informative and very helpful with all of my questions.

My daughter has attended two coaching sessions with Coach Andrew and feels really good about her progress and all she is learning. It's obvious to me her love for running is improving. She even wanted to keep her training session with Coach Andrew in spite of the pouring down rain.

Coach Andrew is really good with my 14 year old daughter who plays competitive soccer. They worked on strength and conditioning which helped improve my daughter with her speed and power. He was very positive and I definitely would recommend Coach Andrew.

Great coach and very knowledgeable. Always has a positive attitude and is very encouraging. Would definitely recommend.

Coach Andrew is a great coach. I hired him for strength and conditioning and he knows how to push you!!! He has a good plan for anyone who is trying to better them selves .

Andrew works great with where you are according to your fitness level. Our first session was very encouraging and yet, challenging. Which was great!!!

Coach Andrew is encouraging and supportive. He has an enthusiasm for running!

Andrew managed to push me to work as hard as I could during my workouts and still have a lot of fun while doing it. I looked forward to my sessions with Andrew because I could see myself improving and knew that his workouts were making me a better athlete.
I recently completed my first 10K after following a customized training plan from Andrew. I finished in under my goal time. The best thing was, I broke through a plateau I had been in with distance. I was finally able to complete 6-8 miles consistently and still have energy left over! He did a great job taking the numbers I sent him about my current runs and turning them into a training plan that took into consideration my current level of fitness and my goals. Andrew’s a great encourager with lots of experience to help runners at any level.
