ETA specializes in coaching endurance athletes of all abilities.
ETA, we understand no two athletes are physically the same and
each will respond differently to training. ETA athletes are not given a
one size fits all training program, but rather a customized plan based
on the latest research as well as the athletes individual goals,
limitations, time constraints, and fitness level. We believe all
athletes are capable of making gains, regardless of perceived ability.
ETA coaches have a solid background in
the sciences, allowing them to evaluate the latest research findings and
apply what is sound to training. We would not suggest anything to our
athletes that has not been scientifically validated and researched. We
also pay attention to detail, and ensure that from both a physiological
and biomechanical standpoint our athletes training is maximized. That
is why we also take on a small clientele, so we can further the
Our methods are proven to be effective in preparing athletes to compete at their highest level of performance on race day.
An Evidence-Based Way of Thinking
Jason has an extensive background in endurance sports. He was a
recreational runner in high school and a competitive runner in college,
and he also began racing triathlons while in college. Through his
participation in athletics, Jason became fascinated with training theory
and subsequently earned his bachelor's degree in exercise science. He
continues his education today as he pursues two master's degrees: one in
human movement and the other in kinesiology.
As Jason searched for the best way to maximize his own athletic
performance, he sought out the top coaches and most popular literature
on training. However, he found himself continually frustrated by the
prevalence of unoriginal, belief-based, and/or illogical training
methods and philosophies. It was this lack of evidence-based coaching
that led Jason to focus on the intelligent application of basic
scientific principles to training. Using this approach, Jason found his
own racing performance to improve dramatically. This inspired him to
take up coaching full time and to make an effort to help others achieve
similar success and realize their potential.
Kidney Transplant Recipient A new take on training and coaching
Another reason Jason loves to coach is rooted in his personal life and
struggles with health. In the summer of his freshman year of high
school, Jason was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease (PKD), a
genetic disease that ran rampant in his family. The disease progressed
in Jason much more quickly than in most patients with KD, and this
greatly affected his health and race performances. Between 2006 and
2009, Jason had more than 11 surgeries. He was very sick and on dialysis
from 2008 until April 9, 2009, when a college teammate donated a kidney
to Jason. Although Jason still works out regularly, his illness may
have brought his racing days to an end; his body just does not hold up
well at a high volume of training due to his years of struggle with PKD.
However, Jason has not given up on returning to racing and is
determined to make a comeback in swimming, cycling, and hopefully
running and triathlon again someday. The uncertainty about his own
athletic future is why Jason gets such enjoyment from working with his
athletes; he lives vicariously through their achievements and
appreciates his role in enabling them to achieve their dreams. Jason's
illness has had the added benefit of giving him a newfound appreciation
for the newbie and beginner athlete, because after being sick for so
many years, he was back to square one when it came to working out again
and understands how daunting that can be.
