Who are we?
Racelab is a family owned business that has been the leading coaching company in the Phoenix area for 18 years.
Our passion for Endurance Sports as a way to wellness is based on its power to positively change lives. Not only have we guided our athletes to their personal goals, but we have witnessed amazing life-style transformations that continue to reiterate the incredible impact that a healthy way of life can make.
We promote physical fitness and improved athletic performance, contributing to a better and healthier quality of life in our communities by:
Providing expert training, and advice to athletes of every level.
Focusing on each participant’s specific requirements, expectations, and goals.
Applying the latest proven training and coaching knowledge and techniques.
Creating a fun, respectful, team-oriented culture within our group.
Partnering with individuals and organizations that share our passion for sports, people, and a better and healthier community.
Why are we different?
INDIVIDUALIZED SCHEDULES & PERSONAL TRAINING
We design a training plan individually for each of our athletes based on ABILITY, GOALS & EXPERIENCE.
No generic plans or "canned" programs are EVER used.
We take your strengths and weaknesses into consideration and work with you to improve your skills, form and technique. Your training plan is carefully revised and adjusted according to your progress. We realize that you have a busy life and will plan your training to make sure you reach your goals successfully, happily and injury free.
COACHED SESSIONS & GROUP WORKOUTS
In addition to our experience, knowledge, track record and dedication to our athletes, No other group in the area has as many coached sessions or group workouts as Racelab! Over 38 workouts per month (Swim, Run & Bike)!
Our Sessions are facilitated by certified Coaches and are challenging, informative and effective. Our coaches do not just throw workouts at you. They interact and make sure everyone, regardless of their level or ability, gets the attention they need.
One of our favorite aspects of Racelab and this line of work is working with people face-to-face and watching them gain confidence and improve.
For more than a decade, Racelab has developed the current proprietary training methodology, not only through vigorous research, but also by working closely with and learning from the thousands of athletes that have successfully trained with us, physical therapists and other professionals and world class elite coaches such as Mark Allen and Rodolfo Gomez.
At Racelab, we continuously review the latest research on subjects related to human athletic performance and have established our own research infrastructure that has proved to be highly effective.
Though the focus on training is mostly on personal coaching, our Group and Coached sessions include a strong team / social element. Racelab provides fantastic social and team environment that supports and motivates you during training. Training and sharing your goals with a team will make the hardest training easier and more enjoyable at any level... No matter whether you are a beginner or a pro, the team will make you feel at home...
We are proud of the athletic achievements of our members, but equally, we are proud of the positive impact that Racelab has had on their lives, the camaraderie, the team environment, and the friendships that have been built and nurtured.
Racelab has trained teams of beginner marathoners as part of fundraising programs of organizations such as The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, The Arthritis Foundation, Youth for Christ, UCP (United Cerebral Palsy), City of Hope and the Phoenix Children's Hospital. We have also been involved in the promotion, organization, and implementation of local race events.
