Coach Brad Hudson
Achieve More. Get Faster.
I’m a performance-focused coach with a variety of influencers in my training methods. For workouts, I use both heart rate and paces with the cardinal rule of stress and adaptation. I enjoy getting as much feedback from my athletes as possible in order to adjust training individually. Training is more than just what you do, but rather about what your body can absorb. Each training session should have a specific purpose and I work with my athletes to build a complete plan that makes sense for them. I enjoy helping other runners reach their goals and helping athletes see the whole picture of training, including the mental aspect, nutrition, sleep, and recovery. I look forward to hopefully working together and helping you reach your full potential.
