Goals
Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: My work stands out from the others in my field, because I'm right in there with my runners. I actually run with my groups. Fast, slow, experienced, new. I try to spend time running with each member of the various running programs. I believe strongly in making a connection with each client and keeping in contact with them via phone and email, to keep them motivated and encouraged. My training programs are not cookie-cutter. Each runner or personal training clients gets a program specifically designed to meet their own personal fitness goals. What I like most about my job is helping a client realize what they are really cabable of doing by breaking down those imaginary limitations they've put on themselves. Building confidence and self-esteem is equally important as building muscle. Once you've accomplished both, it's a magical thing for both the client and myself.

Before training with Thad, I was prone to injuries from running around the block and had no stamina. I would easily give up after a couple of months and would come up with excuses not to continue. I couldn't have asked for a nicer and more knowledgeable person to teach me the correct way to run. On top of building my endurance, Thad has introduced me to new personal challenges with running, which I desire to overcome. I am a huge fan of the running groups organized by Thad, because I am highly motivated by the other runners of the same level. Not only is it a pleasure to know Thad, but I have acquired great running partners from within the group. I look forward to going every week. Thank you, Thad!

I am a new client of Thad's and I'm training for my first marathon, Savannah Rock N Roll. I've known Thad for 7 months, and I'm currently in week 5 of my training. I've been running for over 12 years now: middle & high school track and cross country & cross country in college. Recently I've started to develop a new love for running on my own and have run several half marathons. Training with Thad, I've learned a lot about running that I've never known. He works great with individualizing training and goals. He's very knowledgeable about running, cross training, and injury prevention. I can't imagine training and running a full marathon without his support and the team spirit of our training group! The price is unbeatable, and the experience of training and racing will last a lifetime!

I joined RunnerDude as a beginning runner in April 2011. I have been telling everyone I know what a great beginner runner program Thad has at RunnerDude Fitness. In only 3 months I went from zero endurance and walking only to running 30minutes straight!-and loving it! Thad is patient, supportive, encouraging, and gives you reasonable goals to accomplish. He runs along with us and gets to know all his clients. He has helped me build my confidence and self-esteem as a runner (I can actually call myself a runner now!) I am now in the Intermediate Running Group and learning how to become an even stronger runner. I am looking to RUN (not walk) my first 5K in only a few weeks.

I've been working with Thad, The RunnerDude, for over a year now in two 30 minute strengthening sessions a week. What great workouts he designs and what great encouragement he provides. Thad provides full attention during our sessions and ensures I'm using the correct form. He has the ability to pinpoint muscles that I didn't even know existed and with just the right amount of effort. He varies the program and there's always a new strengthening exercise to work on. Despite the effort, I can't remember a session when I didn't laugh at some point - Thad makes it a fun experience. He also developed a couple of excellent stengthening plans that I can use at hotels, when I'm on the road, without having to use the rusted and broken down equipment invariable found there.

I began running and doing personal training with Thad in September of 2010. I was referred to Thad by a very accomplished collegiate runner and local high school cross country coach. She knew a lot of personal trainers in town and she thought that Thad would be a good fit for me. She was right! I must say that that I was a little apprehensive about working out with a running coach and personal trainer. After all, I was new to running and frankly, out of shape. I soon found out that Thad works with people of all abilities and was excited to help me reach my fitness goals. I am currently on my 3rd 1/2 marathon training plan with Thad. His training plans are designed to prevent injury and make you a stronger and better runner. I have been very satisfied with my progress over the last year. I am also impressed with Thad's knowledge of nutrition and physiology. He has written various articles about good nutrition and great recipes which can be found on his website. Thad's website also has several articles about injury prevention. Thad's personal training workouts are designed to use all muscle groups which help with strength, balance and stability. I personally like the fact that he also does periodic training assessments that help you measure how you are progressing with your fitness goals. If you are looking for a very nice, educated, experienced personal trainer/running coach who is reliable and will design a program based on YOUR individual needs, then Thad is your guy.
