Three ECo athletes nailed their races at Ironman...


If you are interested in taking your athletic performance to the next level - whether that next level is beginning a training program for the first time, improving your personal best time, winning your age group, or turning professional - you came to the right place.

Joe Company, PhD founded ECo in 2010, but prior to this he coached at the high school and collegiate level, worked with Olympic training programs, and worked with a number of high-performance athletes, scientists, researchers, and coaches.  Joe began consulting endurance athletes in 2002, but as he evolved in his education and experience, he wanted to make his expertise available to more people.  ECo is the product of Joe's experience.

Endurance Company coaches and partners are carefully selected to provide quality coaching, teaching, information, and advice. All ECo coaches provide a valuable combination of education, practical experience, and knowledge in Joe's training philosophies.  Endurance Company coaches apply these key principles to provide unparalleled, customized training programs for all abilities of athletes. 

Our mission is make your training and racing experience as rewarding as possible. The goal is to help you become a healthy, successful, complete athlete by providing a training plan that helps you reach your goals while maintaining balance in your life.

In addition to custom training plans, we offer laboratory bike and run VO2max and lactate testing as well as 'field testing' for bike power. These tests allow unparalleled optimization of your training plan.

It is time to take the guesswork out of your training!

Great Floridian Training Program special offer!

The Great Floridian Endurance Festival is a less-expensive alternative to Ironman North Carolina. So, to enhance your options for endurance racing this season, we added a training group for the Great Floridian, which takes place on the same day as IM NC. 

Because of the timing of these two races, we are able to combine the two groups for many of the training and education. So, whether you are doing Ironman NC or Great Floridian, you have a larger group of athletes to train with, socialize with, and join you on this endurance adventure!

The Great Floridian is the largest non-Ironman-branded 140.6 and takes place October 22, 2016.  There are many race distances to choose from including:

  • 140.6 (full iron-distance)
  • 92.6 (2/3 iron-distance)
  • 46.8 (1/3 iron-distance)
  • Full, 2/3, and 1/3 aquabike
