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!

2016 ECo Ironman North Carolina Training

Ironman North Carolina takes place October 22, 2016, and you get professional coaching and guidance so you can race to your potential.

Endurance Company has a proven record of getting athletes prepared for their endurance event. When race day comes, be assured that you will know your race plan, you strategy, your paces, your nutrition, your back-up plans, and your back-plans to your back-up plan. In addition, you will have the support of fellow Endurance Company athletes on the course as well as coach Joe Company on the sidelines encouraging and supporting you!

TEAM ECo takes 3rd at Club Championsips

Over the past five years, Team ECo has evolved from a loosely-structured group of dedicated athletes who train with Endurance Company to a cohesive group of adult athletes across the United States training and racing for a greater good. The camaraderie of this group was showcased as eight Endurance Company athletes raced as a team in the 2015 USA Triathlon Club Championships.
