More About Coach Christopher

I have been coaching on some level since I was in high school. In addition to being a 2-3 season athlete, I helped coach elementary school kids in basketball. Since then I have coached private running, private speed/agility, private personal training, High School XC, High School Track, and private team training for strength and conditioning. I have a Masters Degree in Exercise Science and held a NASM CPT out of college. I have the most experience working with High School, Middle School, and College athletes. Over the past 7 years I have helped 17 sprinters qualify for New Balance Nationals. I have helped 8 athletes medal at the MPSSAA State Track Championships. I am also a High School Science Teacher in Columbia, MD.

I am a 5-time NCAA D-2 All American in distances from the 3k up to the 10k. I won the PSAC 2008-2009 Sportsmanship of the Year Award for helping pace a competitor to a school record and national qualifying time in our conference championship meet. I was a multiple time D-2 Conference and Regional Champion. I held a top 80 world ranking in the Indoor Track 3000m in 2009. As a college athlete I ran in 2 USA Track and Field Championships. After I graduated, I was able to garner a contract with a Reebok training group in NC called Zap Fitness. I ran professionally for 3 years. During that time, I hit the time qualifying standard for the Olympic Trials in the 10k and Marathon. In 2012 I ran in the Olympic Marathon Trials.

Attention = Intention. Individual attention matters. Every session begins with a conversation. I walk the client through the plan for the session and get feedback from them to determine if we need to alter the plan. After that, we execute a 5-10 min warm up involving dynamic mobility, neuro-muscular activation, and movement prep. All these are aimed at the movements we will focus on that session. Then we do the most taxing portion of the session depending on the focus that day. After we hit the primary exercises, drills, reps, etc, we will finish the stressful portion with conditioning in the same energy system. We always end the session with mobility work and a debriefing. Did we accomplish our goals? How did the client feel throughout the session? What needs to be done between now and the next session? I use training as a tool for the athlete to improve their fitness and abilities as well as to see themselves more clearly.

Client Reviews

Amazing first session! My son can’t wait for the next one.

Coach Clark has been excellent working with my high school son. He is positive, motivating and knowledgeable. Although the primary focus is running, Coach Clark is educating my son on nutrition/diet and strength training as well. My son has been enjoying the sessions with his coach, and has been much more motivated to train hard for the upcoming season. I am super grateful that Coach Clark is in our local area and has availability to do private coaching!
