Founder and Running Coach: Jesse Gaylord About Me: I have been passionate about running since being introduced to the sport as a freshman in high school. I am a USA Track and Field Level 1 and Road Runners Club of America certified coach, have a Masters Degree in Education from Johns Hopkins University and have been a head cross-country and track and field coach for nine years. In those nine years, my teams have won 14 league and DC "state" championships. I have been fortunate to coach athletes across the talent spectrum. They include runners who could not complete a mile on their first day to runners who were competing on a national level. I have coached athletes who have set 26 school records across event disciplines and numerous individual league and "state" champions in cross-country and track and field. I have also coached many people to achieve their personal running goals, whether that is to lose weight or qualify for the Boston Marathon. While I loved competing in high school and college, I have found even more joy in helping my athletes and Windsor Running clients achieve new personal bests regardless of where their running journey begins. I hope you'll join our Windsor Running team today and let us help you work toward your individual running goals.
Founder and Strength Coach: Adam Polite About Me: I have a passion for strength training and conditioning that has never waned since I stepped down from the competitive platform of college athletics. I am constantly striving to train my body to stay healthy and perform better. My goal is to create and guide you through a comprehensive, catered strength program that will help you prevent/recover from injury, gain significant strength, and exceed your running goals. I am a NFHS-certified track coach who specializes in technical events (hurdles, jumps and throws) and have developed strength and conditioning programming for track and cross-country athletes. I have also coached clients through strength and conditioning programs to prepare them for their respective sports. I am a certified U.S. Navy Command Fitness Leader (CFL), and am currently serving as the CFL for my Navy Reserve unit, responsible for leading Physical Training (PT) fitness sessions, as well as developing programming and coaching for individuals who want/need to improve their Physical Readiness Test (Navy PRT) scores and overall conditioning. I look forward to guiding you to new heights and helping you achieve your goals.
