At Dai Endurance, we know that an individual is physically capable of more than they recognize in themselves. Our two founders, both former U.S. National Team and World Tour Pro Cyclists, live pushing the physical body past what the brain thinks is possible.

Our clients are busy-working professionals, athletes who are returning to sport after injury, and individuals wanting to stay physically strong while juggling their work/home/life balance. With our knowledge and experience, we help our clients maximize their finite training time with science-based tools. We are about creating maximum impact around one’s physical well-being.

Finally, we support our clients with daily individualized training programs to provide a comprehensive and integrated approach to efficiently and effectively help them reach their fitness goals.
