NUTRITION COUNSELING

It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on their nutrition and goals with a trained professional. Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.

Run Urban’s Ultra Marathoning plan addresses the special concerns of preparing for distances longer than the Marathon. Preparing for a 30, 50 or even a 100 mile run requires specialized knowledge and careful planning.

Our experienced Coaching and Counseling staff is completely committed to your success, and will be your partner in achieving your personal goals.

“The Run Urban sessions really help improve my fitness and confidence. The workout are ones that I would never do well on my own. That, combined with the encouragement from the great coaches and other participants make this program extraordinary. It is so rewarding to go home after the workouts knowing I really pushed myself…and then see my running times improve. Thank you Urban Athletics!! ” – Jennifer
Training with Urban Athletics, both in the Speed & Form workouts during the week, and through customized coaching, has dramatically changed my understanding of what is possible. My race results, and my overall love of running have seen significant improvement just in the 18 months since signing up with Jerry and the UA gang. I look forward to discovering what’s ahead.
Lorraine
When I first starting working with Tony I had plateaued as a runner, my times were not improving and I wanted to get some insight into why this was happening. Tony is incredibly knowledgeable and after just a few sessions, I was running better and becoming more athletic. He has taught me what it takes to be a competitive runner and he has shown me other ways to compete besides just road races, including cross country and indoor track. I can’t recommend him enough for runners of all abilities.
Kevin
Running with Urban Athletics has opened up a whole new world of running for me. The coaches and services offered through UA have helped me become a better runner and a healthier individual. I have not only made great friends through UA, I’ve made a great family.
Jessica
10 years ago I started running with UA, with no running or racing experience. Since then I have run my fastest races over past 2 years at about every distance from 800 meters to marathon. I even qualified for the Boston Marathon this year. UA and Jerry Macari have helped me train, reach and exceed every goal I have set.
Jerry, I finished the marathon in 3:40 which is my PR. I’m so glad.Thank you so much!
Clarke
Though there are many options to how to train, there is no way I would have been able to reach that next level without the support and coaching strategy of UA. I owe many of my PRs, and of course my Boston Marathon Qualifying time, to the coaching staff. Join UA and you’re investing in your success.
