The Perfect Method is a proven and measurable way for all runners to achieve their goals. Originally developed by Tom Tellez, coach of some the greatest track and field athletes of all time, The Perfect Method is now a step-by-step program that prepares runners by focusing on their habits both on and off the track. The Perfect Method gives athletes and coaches everything they need to compete at the highest level: proven running mechanics that deliver maximum speed no matter what the distance, conditioning, optimized nutrition, focus, discipline and the confidence to perform when it counts the most.

Physical Readiness


Nutrition and conditioning deliver the baseline capacity of every athlete. Proper nutrition fuels performance and improves recovery time. Today, there are proven methods to assess nutritional needs that allow specific tailoring of necessary vitamins and minerals to help you get the most out of your training to achieve maximum physical performance. Every athlete, every day.

Running your best demands power, speed and coordination. These are the results you’ll enjoy from a continuous conditioning program that focuses on strength, endurance, flexibility, agility and balance. In addition to general conditioning, The Perfect Method includes workouts that conform to the competitive seasons – enabling athletes to tune their training to the high demand periods and off season opportunities.

There is a “perfect method” to learn to run faster, and it CAN be taught.

Technical Skills

Sports training has become increasingly scientific as athletes and coaches look for a competitive edge. It’s important to apply the scientific principles correctly. For the first time, The Perfect Method presents the information in a way that’s easy to understand and emulate.

Tom Tellez developed some of the greatest track and field performers in the history of the sport, including Carl Lewis, Leroy Burrell,and Joe DeLoach. A true pioneer, Coach Tellez studied kinesiology and the fundamental mechanics of human motion and applied them to running. This system is proven and has stood the test of time because it is scientifically sound.

Focus on the details, then practice each one until you’re doing it right consistently. There aren’t any shortcuts. Be patient and trust the process used by the masters of running.

There’s one way to run your best.

    • Study what matters. Focus on the mechanics of every component.
    • Pay attention to every detail.
    • Practice each element until you can sense when it’s right, then do it right consistently.
    • Practice what’s uncomfortable until it’s natural.

“Speed isn’t about quickness. Speed is about power, which is the result of how much force is applied to the ground.”Tom Tellez

The Mental Edge

Training to your potential is hard because it involves commitment, repetition and change. When you’re moving away from what’s comfortable, you need to have the right goal – the one that’s beyond what’s predictable – and you need to believe that it’s possible. The Perfect Method helps you confirm your goals, remove the barriers ,and shows you a clear path to success.

From there, it’s about doing the work. You have to focus, accept coaching instruction and make big sacrifices, especially if you see the word “champion” in your future. These require concentration, trust, humility and deep-seated motivation. And, just like our nation’s military personnel and top business leaders, athletes at the top of their game know how to perform under pressure and very high levels of stress. That’s because they practice under the conditions that could cause an error. The mental edge is as important as physical talent. We’ve teamed with world-class performance psychologists to help you strengthen yours.

Train to do your best. No matter what.

Practice like it’s the real thing, even in the rain.
