Coaching Information

I am an RRCA certified running coach. For coaching inquiries, email me at jeffgross [at] I also volunteer as a coach for the MRTC Kids program.

As a coach, I am willing to work with any runner who wants to get better–as you define “better.” In coaching you, I may be able to help you improve your race times, your endurance and ability to run far, and/or your efficiency and form. From in person form coaching to web chat consultations and electronic training plans, I offer a full range of coaching options. If you’re interested in learning more, please contact me (see email address above). If I’m not the right coach for your needs, I will do my best to refer you to someone who is.
