Jacob Oak

Run Coach and Trainer

My three goals as an endurance coach:

1) Keep individuals injury free

2) Ensure we all avoid burnout in the endurance realm

3) Create a welcoming community for all interested

I'm a certified personal trainer, corrective exercise specialist, run coach, gait analyst and nutrition coach that works very hard to first understand why an individual has the goals they have. I think it's impossible for me to be the best coach I can be If I do not connect and understand why my athletes are embarking on their endurance journeys. 

From there, I take a full picture approach to someone based on their recovery tactics, the way they move, and their nutrition. Endurance sports, although rewarding, are also extremely demanding. We all need to be thinking about sleep, hydration, nutrition, the ways in which we move (push, pull, twist, bend, lunge, squat, gait), etc before we worry too much about the frequency of our sport or the intensity in which we work at it. 

Let's work on our roots and the tree will grow itself.
