Owen Shott, Head Coach
Frederick “Owen” Shott, grew up in a small town in central Florida called Inverness. He moved to Jacksonville in 1999 on a track and field scholarship to FSCJ.
Fifteen years later Coach Owen has won numerous running, triathlon and cycling races locally in Jacksonville, several State and National Championship titles, and has even competed at the World Championship level, representing the Untied States in Albi, France. He is the first to tell you he didn't get there on his own, and credits his successes to his own coaches and other athletes around him. He's a big believer that athletes don't coach themselves- just like surgeons don’t operate on themselves.
He has found great success in coaching cyclists, runners, and triathletes; competing at all levels (5k to Ironman). Whether you’re looking to qualify for a big race like Boston or Kona or simply just want to PR at a local 5k, he has a plan for you. He really looks forward to sharing training techniques and athletic understanding he has learned over the past 25 years and hopes to pass those along to you.
