Founded in 2019, we are an endurance coaching company specializing in providing top-notch training programs and coaching services for athletes of all ages and abilities. We believe hard work, consistency, determination, and proper training are the keys to success in sports, and we are here to support you every step of the way.
Tabula Rasa comes from the Latin phrase meaning "clean slate". The phoenix in the company logo symbolizes rebirth. When a phoenix dies, a new phoenix is born from the ashes. The combination of what Tabula Rasa means and the phoenix in the logo embodies the personal story of Coach Justin and how he came into endurance sports and is an accurate description of his life in general.
Sometimes its overwhelming and confusing knowing what to do, how to do it, and how much or often to do it. With Tabula Rasa Racing, you can rely on your coach to give you direction and structure to your training. All you have to do is execute the plan and enjoy the journey. Our areas of focus are running, cycling, swimming, triathlon, and hiking.
While many athletes started competing as children, I did not find my sport until I was in my 30's. I went from a 365 lb. pack-a-day smoker who could not walk 4-5 blocks without my back hurting to a 2x full ironman and 8x half ironman finisher. I am leveraging my knowledge and experiences in endurance sports and giving others the roadmap to accomplishing their own athletic goals.
I believe consistency is key, patience is a virtue, and communication is vital. Performance cannot always improve each day because that would be an unrealistic expectation. What we can do is execute each day's plan to the best of our ability. Each day brings another opportunity to learn and grow as athletes.
