"I like the variety of the workouts vs. cookie cutter plans. I like having accountability to the coaches - I tend to give more effort and focus harder when having to report to someone. I like that I am not wasting time on average workouts. I've cut back mileage per week by about 40%, yet haven't gained a single pound - I was definitely worried about gaining weight cutting back mileage. Despite more intensity in workouts, no injuries."
"I've been training under Scott Fishman for nearly a year now and have had nothing but a totally positive experience. His training program is very well programmed - periodized, well laid out throughout the week, and tough but achievable. His personal advice to me, apart from changes made to my program as I progress, has been along the lines of using visualization to achieve goals, perfecting pacing in training runs and during races, postural tips for maximizing energy during long races, and learning from negative experiences during races, so I can work on them in training. During the time I've worked with Scott, I've achieved PRs in the 4mile, 5mile, 10K and half marathon (in the latter I actually knocked nearly 8 minutes off my PR). I've not been injured once while training with him and I believe this is because of his intelligent, periodized training plan, which he writes week to week and assesses daily to change workouts as necessary. He truly listens to his clients and is always available by text, email or phone call."

"Thank you for all the training, tools, support and self-confidence you've giving me over the past 6 months or so. I'm already thinking of what my next challenge might be and look forward to the coaching you'll give me to conquer it."

"I have been working with Scott for over one year now. He is highly professional and a fantastic coach. I have become a much stronger runner with his training plan. He customizes his approach for each of his athletes. Within months of working with Scott, I achieved a PR in my marathon by 8 minutes and I have now qualified for Boston twice while working with him. He provides excellent tips; so many which have helped me run faster and more efficiently. I have asked Scott for recommendations on nutrition and fuel and he has been extremely helpful with advice on healthy options. I HIGHLY recommend Scott as a Coach. He is a fantastic coach and a wonderful person."

"My experience with Team All-American so far has been scary, but awesome! It's been scary because Coach Scott is pushing me beyond what I think I can do - and then I discover that I CAN do what he's asked me to do! The things I like best about Team All-American so far are that Coach Scott pushes me, but not too hard so that I get frustrated or injured; I love the customized, ever-changing training plans - like when life or the Army (I'm an Active duty Soldier) throws a curve ball, I know I can text Scott and let him know what's going down and he adjusts my training schedule accordingly; and I love that there is such awesome communication between Coach and Athlete - the phone call from Coach Scott the night before my half marathon a couple of weeks ago was a complete, but welcome, surprise! Thanks for everything!!"

"I have been working with Scott since the fall of last year. When I made the commitment to run a full marathon I knew that my own training routine would not be sufficient to accomplish this goal. While training with Scott, I have remained injury free and increased my running times/pace, even achieving a personal best in a recent 5k race. Scott has always been supportive, helpful, and encouraging. We talk frequently and make adjustments to my schedule as often I have to travel for work. Certainly personal coaches and training programs are not for everyone, but I have been very satisfied with the working experience I have with Scott and will continue to recommend him to others who are seeking assistance."
