THE COACHING TEAM
Tyler Quinn, Ph.D.
Tyler is a 'super nerd' and multi-sport athlete with a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology from the University of Pittsburgh. He coaches individuals from many different disciplines, bringing science-based training to each athlete. As an experienced ultra distance athlete, he has completed many events including; the Leadville 100-mile run and mountain bike races, Ironman triathlons, marathons, gravel races and multi-day cycling races.
He believes that every athlete should enjoy the process of reaching their goals. "If you're not having fun, don't do it!" By day, he serves the U.S. Government as a Research Scientist for the Centers for Disease Control...yeah, that's been really fun for him during a global pandemic (said no one ever). If you want a data-nerd with an impressive race resume and a bizarre sense of humor, he's your guy.
Erin Clark, R.D., L.D.N.
Erin Clark is an experienced ultra distance athlete and our team Registered Dietitian with a passion for helping others reach their full potential through proper nutrition. Erin has a variety of working experiences including; collegiate athletes, recreational athletes, non-athletes, and everything in-between. Erin believes strongly in an ‘anti-diet’ approach and finding the proper nutrition plan that will not only help you reach your specific goals, but one that also succeeds in finding the balance between feasible and enjoyable.
She is known among her teammates as "Ultra Marathon Barbie" because she seems to be the only one of us who looks beautiful and photogenic while running. She would prefer to run a 100k over a 5k any day, she lives in her dirty yellow crocs and often spends her day having full conversations with her dog, Sydney. Erin has always had a strong passion for nutrition and believes that she has been able to succeed in so many races because of proper fueling both on and off the race course. She looks forward to working with you and helping you reach your nutrition-related goals!
Sally Sherman, Ph.D.
Sally is an ultra endurance athlete, lululemon Ambassador, yoga teacher and meditation coach. She has a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology from the University of Pittsburgh where she serves as a professor of Exercise Science in the Department of Health and Human Development.

She specializes in helping athletes find their true purpose, conquer their fears and seek joy in achieving their goals. Sally is a devoted mother to her mini-shredder, Lorelei and knows first-hand the challenges associated with conquering epic goals while maintaining balance. She believes great coaching requires solid science, eating like a champion, sleeping like a baby and lots (and lots) of pep talks.
