JOHN1-1.pngJohn Trautmann is one of the three coaches for HOKA ONE ONE NJNYTC. Trautmann was a fine high school, college and post collegiate athlete, having made the 1992 Olympic team. John also came back as a Masters runner and ran a new WR indoor for the mile.

Trautmann was asked what he loves about coaching. He could have gone on for an hour.

FRANK1-1.pngFrank Gagliano has been one of our most important coaches and educators for over five decades. Gags is not one to mince words. He loves his athletes and they know when they do well and do not do well. That is part of the educational process. Gags dream is to give young American distance runners the best chance to challenge their limits.

The Shoe Addicts and RunBlogRun met with the HOKA ONE ONE NJNYTC Coaching Staff at the Martinez Classic in June 2017. Questions were asked and answers were provided, and we hope that you enjoy this answers and use them. We have broken the questions into 34 different videos.

This is Coach Gags speaking on the need for coaches to be at workouts.

TOM1-1.pngTom Nohilly is one of the two assistant coaches at HOKA ONE ONE NJNYTC. He is a former steeplechaser who made two World Championship teams. Tom, like John Trautmann, was coached by Frank Gagliano in college and as a post collegiate. Now, some years later, Tom and John work with Frank Gagliano, to help a group of young American distance runners challenge their limits in the NJNYTC.

In this video, Tom Nohilly provides us some suggestions on how to speak to young athletes on their first big race. This is the big race season, and it shakes athletes up. Tom Nohilly uses his experiences well as a coach and offers suggestions on how to reach your young athlete rand how to inspire them for the upcoming big races.
