Alyson Sheppard, M.S. & C.S.C.S
My goal which has eluded me the past 2 marathons was to run a sub 4 hr marathon. I ran 3:45... and the best part is I didn't take long to recover.
This tells me that training was spot on and that the goal to run a sub 3hr is more attainable than I ever thought.
Training was a 22 week plan that I started with the numbers you had given us. As the training progressed, I found that I ran easier at a quicker pace.
The end result was that I was fresh and ready to complete the task ahead.
having the numbers to use as a guide really did help.
K Wilson - Marathon Runner & Triathlete
Ran the Half Marathon yesterday.
Broke 2 hours for the first time since 2016! First Place Male 55-59!
HR started to spike a little the last couple miles as heat/humidity really got tough. Pushed at the end to hit 1:58.

Bare Performance (Nick Bare)
We did a metabolic test that determined Nick's VO2 Max, VLA Max, and Lactate Threshold for his marathon training. We got the results of the testing back within 48 hours. Alyson was kind, professional, and timely. All of the data that was provided was laid out in a very easy-to-understand manner. This data is incredibly useful for not only marathon runners, but for all athletes.
I have a very challenging race in August and decided to work with Optimize Performance to understand my baseline/starting point. Alyson was incredible and the process was easy. The process took a couple of hours but completely worth it. Now I know where I am and the things I need to focus on to be successful for my race. There is no guessing, the science proves it. Look forward to working with Alyson over the next few months to devise strategies that will improve my overall performance!
Garret Oakley, IM Athlete
I am training for IRONMAN and did a run test with her and the amount of knowledge that she has is unbelievable! To parallel her knowledge is how personable and attentive she is with you! I am someone who asks multiple questions all the time and she always has the right answer and spends time making sure I understand. In the couple of hours we spent together not only did I learn so much about strategy and preparation but I had immediate feedback on ways to enhance my training and in particular, after that session, running. Due to testing and corrections, I was able to sustain a quicker pace and shave over 20 seconds off my average mile for over 6 miles. I know under her direction and tutelage my dreams to accomplish and complete an IRONMAN will become more and more a reality. Alyson is simply THE BEST!!
