CHRIS STRAIT

I have been a personal coach for over 17 years and also coached the men's and women's distance teams for 2 years at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. In those 2 years I had 2 national qualifiers, 8 regional qualifiers, and 4 conference champions. I have coached distances ranging from the 800 up to the marathon. I am also USATF Level 1 certified.

One of my strengths as a coach is my sincere desire to help my athlete's reach their goals. By helping athlete's shape their goals, develop training strategies, and discussing successes and struggles, we are able to progress through benchmarks to achieve goals.
