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.

At what intensity should I train?!?!

For the performance-minded athlete, one of the most important aspects of any training program is training at YOUR proper intensities. The science as to why training within the constraints of your physiological zones is covered in a different post, but the take-home message is that whether you are working one-on-one with a coach or following a plan from a book, finding your training zones are critical to optimizing any training program. In addition,  the method by which you find your zones can either set yourself up for success or lead to a path of overtraining and failure.

Meditation: 10 reasons why every athlete should meditate

With all the scientific evidence coming out in the past several years, meditation is becoming something that can't be overlooked. As anyone who's ever played a sport knows, the biggest opponent is always inside. Meditation gives you ways to come to terms with this opponent.

Meditation: a possible treatment for stress-related diseases?

Meditation is a term used to describe a diverse array of practices, each with a variety of goals. All of these practices use non-analytical means to focus attention without “discriminating thought,” which means that the mind is calmed in order to focus the attention inward toward the consciousness (7). Meditation usually includes one of the following: freeing the mind of thoughts, focusing on God/Universe, seeking guidance from a higher power, or focusing on a teaching or situation. Meditation requires no particular lifestyle or belief system (i.e. religion) and is often practiced along with (not in place of) other activities in life.

Diaphragmatic Breathing - benefits for runners

If Anders Ericsson’s research, popularized by Malcolm Gladwell in his book Outliers, is accurate, that it takes about 10,000 hours of doing something to Master that thing, then I am a Master runner.  And yet, I feel more like a true beginner at the sport than ever in my running.

2012 ECo Wrap-Up

As we wrap up the 2012 season, I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who is part of the ECo family.  I was very impressed with how hard the athletes worked this year,  how open the athletes were to adapting to new training, and how well the athletes performed.  ECo athletes are part of a group of incredible athletes who have chosen to train wisely, work hard, and redefine their limits.  The results speak for themselves.
