About the Coach
Mario believes that runners and triathletes should never be too far removed from any of the three main components involved in running fast—pure speed, muscular endurance and aerobic strength. In order to become a faster runner and more well-rounded athlete in general, it's important to pay attention to each of these elements, with the emphasis shifting depending on the season. Workouts will reflect this holistic, balanced approach and will often blend two or more of these elements into a single training session.
"I enjoy the challenge—and process—of working with different types of athletes. In 11 years of coaching, I've helped runners (and triathletes) cross their first finish lines, complete a full season healthy, achieve personal bests, finish atop of
podiums and qualify for events such as the Boston Marathon, Olympic Trials, Western States 100 and even the Olympic Games. Regardless of an athlete’s experience level or competitive goals, it’s the excitement of seeing someone achieve what they set out to do that energizes me as a coach." -Mario Fraioli
