More About Coach Talib

For the past seven years, I have been giving private Track and Field sessions to young athletes in the Washington D.C. area. My coaching style is based on the principles I learned from my own experience of having been coached on the high school and college level. These principles incorporate essential drills which begin with an extensive warm up, followed by a thorough work out session. I enjoy working with athletes of all ages and levels, but I especially enjoy the challenge of coaching teenagers and making a difference in their lives both on and off the field. Additionally, I am also USA Level One Certified.
I have served as Assistant Coach for over twenty years at H.D. Woodson High School and have served as Head Coach for five years. My team has the distinction of winning Division Championships (Indoor and Outdoor) and the State Championship for 2013 in Outdoor Track and Field. My specialties include Sprint Training, Distance, all field events, Hurdles and working with young people to develop the mindset and mental agility they need to be successful athletes and students. My goal is for each athlete to experience improvement in their technique throughout their training, and I am confident that in using my coaching methods they will succeed in bringing their confidence, skill and talent to their individual events.

Awesome!!!

Coach Talib is awesome. My daughter learned so much and improved greatly in her first session. She left more confident and sure of herself. He dissected her form. Shot video and thoroughly explained how her current technique was affecting her progress as well as how to fix it. She's been running track for 4 years and said she got more out of her first session with Coach Talib than she's gotten from her school practices. He definitely made a positive impact. Looking forward to seeing her put what she is learning into action. I definitely recommend him.

My daughter loved her first session with Coach Talib. She felt like he gave her very useful coaching and explained why he was doing everything.

2018-From the first session my son felt very comfortable with Coach Talib. He has knowledge in all events and was a great help to my son heading into indoor track season. I think his biggest contribution to my son was the way he motivated him to believe in himself! When my son first met Coach Talib he was jumping 5.8 and after working with him he was able to break his high school record and PR at 6.1.

2019-UPDATE-This past indoor track season was my son's last season in high school. We started earlier this year with Coach Talib and the results were fantastic! My son was able to PR at 6'6 in high jump at his very first meet and was able to qualify for Emerging Elite Nationals. Coach Talib took the time out of his schedule to travel to NY to help coach my son during the meet where he PR'd again at 6.7 and placed third at the meet. My son is a typical teenage who feels that he knows everything but Coach Talib had the patience to work with him and train him to his full potential. If you are looking for a great coach then Coach Talib is the way to go!

Extremely knowledgeable and determined immediately needs for my son.

Great coach! Takes his time to make sure the athlete understands everything he’s talking about.

Coach Talib has been working with my daughter off and on for a few years. He is always patient and understanding while getting the job done. Her improvement when she trains with him 2 days a week surpasses the 5 day training she does at school.

My daughter's first session with Coach Talib makes me want to return to being a teenager so that he could train me to be a true athlete. I have never previously encountered a coach whose assessment of a person's abilities included training solutions to her weaknesses alongside recognition of her strengths. She is now actively developing fast twitch reflexes. I strongly recommend Coach Talib and look forward to submitting an updated review in a few months.

Coach Talib was better than expected! His depth of knowledge about triple jumping and long jumping were quickly apparent. He was able to point out ways for my son to improve his technique right away. Gave him a solid, clear workout plan for the week.

Significant improvement in technique and performance after just one session! Looking forward to working with coach going forward.

Simply the best!

Coach Talib is great so far. He has really helped my child see what she was doing wrong and what she needed to do to correct it. he is on time and ready to work. So far so good great teacher.

Coach Talib is knowledgeable and conveys technique in an understandable and useful manner. He is patient and still moves the sessions along. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a track coach. He almost instantly identified the flaw in my sons mechanics and in just three sessions helped him correct mechanical problems. My son was enthusiastic about the outcome. We are signing up for more sessions with him. Great coach, great approach.

Coach Talib is great coach thus far! We were truly impressed just after one session with our daughter. We are excited for this upcoming Track & Field Season!

Coach Talib was great! He gave my daughter a hard workout which was targeted to what she needs to do, and he gave her encouragement to try to reach her potential. He was very knowledgeable and I was impressed and also grateful we found him. Coach Talib is also responsive and on time.

Adrian B. Sprinter 100m /200m/ 400m Duval High School :Says Coach Talib R. focuses on the little thing that improve your running form!! He always believes in you!! He picks you up win or lose!!
