Coach David Jankowski
Achieve More. Get Faster.
No two runners are the same, and therefore, no two training plans will be identical. I focus on understanding each runner’s specific talents and helping them unlock skills to maximize performance. This means building a strong endurance foundation before tailoring workouts for specific skill sets.
While molding your body to best capitalize on your unique skills, I also focus on providing tools to enhance your mindset. Through my experience, I have found mindset and mental well being are the largest barrier between an athlete and her goals. My goal is to provide my athletes with mental tools to enhance both training and unlock hidden potential.
