What Coach Ian's Clients Say...

"Ian has an amazing way of making me feel relaxed and confident in myself. Nothing is too much trouble for him. He is always there to guide me in my running. I feel very fortunate to have such an experienced and exceptional ultra trail runner as my coach." - Steph Gaskell /
"I cannot recommend training with Ian strongly enough. Under his guidance, I very comfortably completed my first ultras, a 50k and a 50 mile, while also setting new PRs in the 10k, half marathon and marathon. The training program is simply invaluable." - Emily Malloy /
"When I started working with Coach Ian, I had never run further than a marathon. With his customized training plan, encouragement, and answers to my questions, I successfully completed my first and second 100 milers. I highly recommend him for anyone who likes to set AND accomplish lofty goals." - Valerie Clinard /
"When Ian assigns workouts that appear beyond my abilities, I trust that he knows I can do them. More important, he tells me to rest when I want to work myself into the ground, I know he's right. With his help, I was able to exceed my goal and earn a silver buckle at Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run." - Steve Itano /
"Ian helped me achieve my longtime goal of running from rim to rim to rim in the Grand Canyon. His training plan was so spot on that I actually ran a negative split from the north rim back to the south. I know that if I stick with Ian, I will continue to improve and, more important, enjoy the mountains and trails." - Jana Gustman /
"Through being coached by Ian, I’ve learned to increase my distance and strength at a proper rate to not only complete my first 100 mile, but to finish strong and competitively too! Thanks for everything, as always!" - Derek Schultz /
"For the first time ever I am running injury-free. The constant interaction and attention to our unique needs and goals has been vital. It is really amazing to share the journey with not only a mentor and coach, but a friend for life."
- Carey and David Martin /
"Last month I pr'd by 5 minutes, placed 4th in the World for Team USA, and broke my own age group world record by 9 minutes. I feel fresher and have more time to do other things I enjoy. I am excited to be running as well as I do at the age of 51 and don't feel any signs of slowing down." - Meghan Arbogast /
