A professional athlete's life is not as glamorous as it appears. Training full time for the 2016 Rio Olympics, National Team Triathlete Nick Karwoski found it difficult to support himself financially. As a means to supplement his income, he decided to bring his knowledge and expertise to amateur athletes who wanted skilled guidance in swimming, cycling and running. Nick quickly achieved success as a pro trainer and enjoyed the experience of helping people realize their athletic potential. Seeing his teammates and fellow pro athletes in other sports struggling financially as he once had, he realized that if he could do this, he could help others do it too. Thus, TAGALONG was born.
TAGALONG's mission is to connect athletes to help them improve together. In an increasingly impersonal world, Tagalong differentiates itself from other fitness websites and apps by providing the ultimate personalized training experience offering one-on-one in-person or virtual training sessions, customized training plans and consultation calls. We’re passionate about what we do and we want to share that with others! We encourage any individual to grow beyond their current self. We want Pros to share the love of their sport with others and the knowledge they’ve obtained on how to succeed. We want amateur athletes to be open-minded, willing to experience new things and take risks knowing that our Pros will help them every step along the way while having fun and staying safe. For us, it’s not solely about the end result. We want athletes to enjoy the journey in getting there. We invite you to TAGALONG!
