Damian found his passion for running over 12 years ago. But chronic running injuries in 2002 kept him from running for over two years. After years of trying just about everything conventionally used for recovery, nothing helped. A few doctors and physical therapists even told him he would never be able to run again!

Damian learned it wasn’t running that was causing the injuries but how he incorrectly ran, ate and trained that caused injuries.

Finding this solution changed Damian’s life. It has allowed him to run pain-free and eventually enter the world of ultramarathon running. Even running up to 100+ miles a week, Damian ran injury-free for over 11 straight years while running faster with less effort and more fun.

His unique approach and trusted expertise has had tremendous results for thousands of runners of all abilities.Damian teaches runners of all levels his solution to better, faster, injury-free running.
