About Martin

I am a UESCA-certified Ultrarunning Coach and current Trail Coach for adidas. I am a lifelong outdoor and endurance athlete. I spent my youth backpacking and camping in the mountains of Idaho, building a love of adventure and the outdoors. With a wide range of long distance running experience, my passion usually takes me back to the mountains, where blurring the lines between alpinism and trail-running keep me exploring new places and questioning the limits of what is possible.

Coaching Philosophy

I take a holistic approach that includes more than just run programming; taking into account all of the elements that shape a performance. This means different things for different athletes, so your training is built around a combination of hyper-specificity and the necessary adaptability to make changes on the fly. Sometimes this might include bringing in outside experts to focus on areas beyond my expertise, but throughout the coaching relationship, athletes will have an ally that always has their best interests in mind.
