Bumping into coach Ken Mierke after a Reston Bike Club ride was quite a surprise to Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau. Mierke, of Fitness Concepts, was one of the first coaches in the area to use sound sports medicine science and regularly perform VO2 Max testing on athletes.

Ken is a champion athlete who carried the Olympic torch in Virginia. The ABRAMS LANDAU lawyer has “put his money where his mouth is,” by sending his wife and son to attend one of Coach Ken’s “Evolution Running” Clinics. Landau invited Mierke to visit “the Law Shop” after which they caught up at the Herndon Irish Pub. They discussed injured athletes, bikes crashes, rehabilitation from injury and advances in athletic training.

    I’ve read plenty of your blogs and was surprised to see this one – out of curiosity??

    Why does Ken Mierke have such a miserable and broken web site? I’ve tried every email and phone number I can find to hire one of his coaches, and I get nothing in response, or the emails bounce back. Links dont work and I can’t speak to a live person – otherwise the 6 team members would have purchased a recent Evolution running class – sure, we’re Born To Run guys but figured it would be great to have a world class coach, or one of his approved Pros, put us through our paces.

    Just wanted a good coach for a few sessions for me and the team of other fund raising knuckleheads for race season….. Is there anyone else you can recommend in the NoVa region for this type of workout??

    Any idea how to contact him or at least refer him to someone to fix his public facing website?

      Dear Thomas Ferri,
      Thank you for your note – I will try to get a “good number” for Ken. You can also try Margie Shapiro at Potomac River Running (see “Places”), as she used to administer the VO2 max testing at what was left of Fitness Concepts when Ken was in Annapolis.
