Coach's Accomplishments

Training Style

I believe in consistency; to be good at running you have to be consistent in your training. My goal is to help you be as consistent as possible in your training and in the pursuit of your goals. I believe that consistency can be accomplished through a training program that is practical, personal, and progressive.

Practical in that it is designed specifically for the time and resources available to you at this stage of your life.

Personal in that it is catered to your unique fitness level, goals, and training style.
Progressive in that it is carefully designed to advance you from where you are to where you want to be.

Whether you are a first-time runner or trying to knock minutes off of your personal bests, I can help you reach your goals by providing a training program that is practical, personal, and progressive.

Jacob Phillips

In 2016, after helping two ladies achieve a lifelong dream of qualifying for the US Olympic Trials Marathon, Coach Jacob realized that his passion was not for his own running, but for helping others pursue their running and performance goals. With nearly 20 years of experience coaching runners of all levels, he is ready to help you pursue your passion. Regardless of your fitness level, running history, or racing distance, Coach Jacob would be honored to work with you!

Coach Jacob was hired to be the coach for Dallas Baptist University in 2005 and has amassed 21 Conference Championships in Cross Country since that time and has been named Coach of the Year with each of those Championships. Until 2016, he was an avid runner, logging upwards of 130 miles per week and racing everything from the 800 meters through the marathon. He has run the Houston Marathon, Chicago Marathon, and the Grandma’s Marathon and considers Duluth his favorite place to race after setting his Half Marathon and Marathon personal bests there. His wife, Rachel, and he live in Dallas, Texas and have two young boys, Will and Sam.
