COMPLETE HUMAN PERFORMANCE
Coaching, training, and education for any athlete at any level.
Over a decade of experience leading the charge in "hybrid" performance
Often held responsible for the popularization of "Hybrid Athlete" as a term and a thing, Alex Viada wrote the book on combining strength and endurance back in 2015. Since then, Alex and his team at CHP continue to push the limits of human performance. Using everything learned from coaching thousands of clients from all walks of life, CHP offers a variety of educational courses for coaches and athletes alike, and strives to make the world of athletics more approachable and more enjoyable for everyone involved.
Ultrarunner, CrossFit Coach, Race Director
With Nickademus, he had such a wealth of knowledge when it came to ultrarunning that I was able to ask him endless questions about the sport, from sleep deprivation to gear choices, and he always had some experience to draw on. He took a long holistic approach to my running career while allowing me to still dabble in strength training.
During my time as a CHP client I set PRs in all my lifts: snatch, clean & jerk, back squat, deadlift. I also went from running 50k's to completing my first 100 mile trail race in 2019 and have since run numerous other ultramarathons, including races with over 10,000' of gain, which are now my main interest (vert!).
My training at CHP has varied a lot over the last few years, it's had everything from standard CrossFit workouts, long weightlifting sessions, trail runs, weighted rucks, and even mindfulness practices. I would say the best part about the CHP training is that it is diverse while still goal-focused on whatever you want to get better at.
Ultrarunner, OCR Athlete
Coach Alec molded me from a below average athlete, to a strong endurance athlete. In addition throughout our journey he was able to maintain and improve upon my strength still throwing up some decent deadlifting, squat and overhead presses. This was my first coaching program. Overall I loved the build up over the years, coach would take a look at my goals and give me his honest feedback on what he thought I could accomplish within a time frame.
The Hybrid Athlete programing is legit, and you're able to round out your fundamentals and perform at a high level. I'm one of 7 people to complete 100 miles at the World's Toughest Mudder, since its inception in 2011.
Anthony was an awesome coach. I set some crazy goals during one of the busiest times of my life and he adapted the program perfectly every step of the way to really customize it to my every need. In the end, we smashed it and he deserves all the credit in the world.
His ability to adapt on the fly was outstanding and his personal notes in the app really made the difference in how I performed. Going from zero cardio powerlifter to full marathon runner in only six months while having a newborn, incorporating international travel, and having the busiest business schedule of my life.
Anthony is the man and I'd fearlessly recommend him to anyone.
