Andrew has taken me beyond what I ever thought possible with my running, and is continuing to do so in an inspiring and encouraging way. Whether it’s during the fun times or stressful times he is there for me. He is also wonderful at customizing a training plan that fits in with my tremendously busy lifestyle. More than just a running coach, he is also a mentor and friend. Overall he has made me a smarter and more efficient runner, and I couldn’t ask for more.

Andrew coached me to my first marathon a few years ago and helped me break my goal time.  I continue to run with Andrew’s High Sierra Striders and enjoy every workout.  Andrew knows his stuff and I totally trust his coaching.  He takes the guesswork out of my workouts; as long as I do what he says and provide him honest feedback, my risk of injury remains small and the chances of meeting my goals are great.  Not only is Andrew passionate about coaching and running, he is also passionate about people.  He makes an effort to ask questions and listen to you and he remembers what you say.

No matter how old you are or how fast you run, Andrew treats you like his best athlete.  He is caring and enthusiastic and challenges you to do your best.  Andrew seeks out and uses the latest and most effective training and treatment techniques.  I feel privileged to be a client and I know that without Andrew’s coaching, I wouldn’t be competing.
