2017 HOKA ONE ONE Coaching Series, Part 2: John Trautmann speaks on coaching


Updated September 22, 2017. This is our new series and we are reposting it with new art. We are getting great notes from our readers and thank Gags, John Trautmann and Tom Nohilly for their interest and HOKA ONE ONE for their support.

John Trautmann is one of the two assistant coaches of the HOKA ONE ONE New Jersey New York Track Club. A 1992 Olympian at 5000 meters, John was a fine collegiate runner who faced more challenges from injuries during his elite career than competitors. In his 40s, John reached out to his college coach, Frank Gagliano and took the seven year journey to get back into shape, running a masters indoor mile of 4:12!

Now John coaches some of the finest and most promising post collegiate American athletes with HOKA ONE ONE NYNJTC. Here is the first of eight segments with John Trautmann. Coach Trautmann reminds us that after track season, one must take a break. Big lesson for many who train all year round. Watch for our videos from Coaches Trautmann, Nohilly and Gagliano all fall season.
