My Name is Michael Aish and running has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. New Zealand born, I was brought up under the training philosophy of Arthur Lydiard. I went to college in Gunnison, Colorado and ran for Western Colorado University. While running at Western, it did not take long for me to fall in to the role of writing and leading the training for our team. It was under this collaboration with the school coach that our team excelled on a national level. During that time, I won 12 individual NCAA D2 titles and was a 16 time All American.
After graduation, I signed a contract with Nike and was fortunate to travel the world training and racing with some of the best athletes and coaches on the planet and was able to learn and benefit from many different training methodologies and training styles. Through my career as a professional athlete (2002- 2016), my travels around the globe racing and working with other highly respected coaches, I have developed my own training philosophy and integrate elements that work and bring results.
