Swimming, biking, or running your game?  Has completing a half or full marathon been your goal for some time?  Perhaps you've dreamed of completing a triathlon, xterra, or even an ironman?  Let me share with you the feeling that comes from accomplishing such feats of athleticism. 

Knowledge and experience of this kind will cost you much more in upscale places like Austin and Dallas.  Go to www.texasiron.net or www.playtri.com  and check out what they offer.  Just look into what 'they' charge for one-on-one training ($75-$150/hr and more) and then what PyroFitness has to offer.  I'm sure you'll agree that it's good to be in Lubbock, training with one of the best, for much less.

As you read in my profile, I have successfully experienced most formats of endurance training and racing, from sprint road triathlons up to the ironman distance, as well as podium placing in xterra racing and team 24 hr racing in Moab.  Give me a call and we can discuss your goals.

Hi, I'm Glen Poklikuha, and you're in luck, endurance training is not only my expertise, it is my passion Let my experience and knowledge gained from thirteen years and over 160 endurance races, coupled with five years of graduate school courses and research in exercise physiology and biomechanics work for you by minimizing downtime, increasing training effectiveness, all the while motivating you to achieve your goals.

Ive taught hundreds of college students in the field of exercise science, worked with people from 14 to 84 years of age at Covenant Health System's Lifestyle Center, and kept abreast of the latest research in health and physical performance.

Notable finishes and titles among my 160+ endurance races include several overall wins in both running and triathlon races, as well as first place age group and top ten overall finishes in New Mexico's Milkman Regional Championship and Sportspectrum's River Cities Triathlon.  Notable off-road triathlon performances include USAT's Off-Road Duathlon Champion and Xterra West Championship, in which I qualified for Xterra World's 30-34 age group.
