WHAT ATHLETES & EXPERTS SAY
Hazel Clark
3 Time Olympian, (Track 800m) Nike Athlete

“Shannon’s expertise and knowledge helped me run my personal best in the 800m, win 7 US National titles, and make 3 Olympic teams. Go! Athletics can help any athlete take their performance to the next level.”

Amy Horst
Head Coach, Loyola University Track and Cross Country

“I began working with Shannon when I was experiencing frustration with an athlete who was stagnant in training and racing. The training progress and racing expectations weren’t lining up. The first PPT we ran with her gave me all the information I needed to help guide her to new 10k (track) personal bests in only 8 weeks. Since then I’ve transitioned all my athletes to regular PPT testing and have seen outstanding results in training and competition. The specific individual information I’m able to use for each athlete allows us to train as a group while challenging each individual appropriately. Further, I see that athletes are able to recover faster and workout harder, translating to better long term health as a runner with less illness and injury. Particularly with developmental level athletes knowing the individual strengths and weakness really allows me to effectively train them to see healthy results faster!”

Liz Costello
Professional Runner, 1 x Pan American Games finalist

“Using the results from physiological testing as a guide to formulate a training plan, Shannon helped me select and prepare for several races during the spring of 2014. The most notable of those races was a win at the Brooklyn Half Marathon in a then personal best and Marathon Olympic Trials qualifying time of 1:13:29.”

 

Will Purman
2015 World Championships Qualifier

“After taking an extensive break from rowing in 2015, I was given the rare opportunity to represent my second nationality (Puerto Rico) at the world rowing championships. With only about 8 weeks to go before the World Championships I rushed to Shannon for her expert advice. With Shannon’s personalized System Based Training plan I was able to get back to international level speed in a very short amount of time and set a flat water PR. I look forward to continuing System Based Training in my preparation for Olympic qualification. I hope to represent Puerto Rico and Go! Athletics in Rio next Summer.”

JJ Clark
Head Coach, University of Connecticut Track And Field

“Over the course of 4 years (2002-2005), the University of Tennessee Women’s track program utilized physiological testing data to turn an ordinary track team into NCAA team champions (2002- NCAA 53rd place, 2003- 23rd place, 2004- 4th place, 2005- 1st place). “Since 1999, Shannon has provided pertinent testing and data that has helped in the development of optimal training programs for my athletes. Shannon is extremely knowledgeable in the application of Exercise Physiology for training and competition. Physiological Profile Testing allows each athlete to get the most out of their abilities.”
