Working together has allowed us to share ideas on athletes and training methods. Many of the qualities that we have as endurance athletes and our enthusiasm for the outdoors was forged years ago during our organic upbringing. Yaro was always much stronger and faster, which served him well in both team sports and track and field, whereas I gravitated to the distance events out of necessity. Now we both pursue endurance sports with similar goals but different strengths and weaknesses. As coaches we have experience working with all types of endurance athletes. We have worked with triathletes, runners, cyclists, adventure racers, and general fitness athletes. We have coached a variety of athletes from obstacle racers to ultra runners, and from beginner triathletes to advanced triathletes. In addition, we work with pure cyclists, mountain bikers and cylcocross racers.


All of our coaching is done online through Training Peaks. Training Peaks is a useful tool allowing me to keep open communication with my athletes. Daily e-mails direct my athletes on their next workout and we receive e-mails whenever a workout is entered in the training log. Our monthly coaching fee includes the Training Peaks subscription and contact via phone and e-mail. Additional services are also available such as video analysis and one-on-one training sessions.

Yaro Middaugh

I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education with minors in History and Exercise and Health Science from Alma College. I also have a Masters of Arts in Humanities from Central Michigan University. I have been a USAT Certified coach since 2008, and have my USAT Junior/Junior Elite, USAT Long Course Level II and XTERRA Certified coaching certificates. I have lived and coached in nearly every region of the United States from the West Coast, mountains of Colorado, Northern Michigan and now Northeast Florida.

My family currently resides in St. Augustine, FL. Living and training in many different regions of the United States has given me a unique perspective into coaching athletes all over the country and world.
