I cannot say enough good things about Thad's running program and his approach to overall fitness and health. He has dramatically improved my running and and is a constant supportive voice in my training. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to become a better runner (or just become a runner) or to anyone that wants positive guidance in becoming a healthier person.

Thad is wonderful to work with. He listens to what you want & builds a program to fit your needs. I like how he's very encouraging, but is not all in your face yelling!!! Great as both a running coash & a fitness trainer. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Working with RunnerDude was one of the best decisions I have made with running and overall fitness! Thad is fantastic about working with individuals and their needs and goals which are specific to them. I was able to improve my running time significantly over a few months of consistent training with him.
Medical Director Moses Cone Sports Medicine, Greensboro, NC
Thad McLaurin is one of those unique personal trainers who has both the disposition and the knowledge to work with runners and help them achieve success. About half of runners experience a significant injury yearly and 25% are injured at any given time. Careful training schedules and appropriate supplemental fitness training are keys to becoming one of those runners who does not experience injury. Thad has successfully trained many of my patients and helped them achieve running success. His clients seem dedicated and appreciative of his service. They become a group that supports each other in achieving their goals. I have enjoyed my association with him and his clients and I can count on him to assist me in getting injured runners back to their training.

The first Wednesday of each month, RunnerDude's Fitness holds their weekly group run at Di'lishi Frozen Yogurt on Battleground Ave. We Do a warm-up at 6:25 and head out on the run around 6:30pm. Our route is an out-n-back up Old Battleground road, down Lake Brandt Road and back. Some runners even take off and do some of the trails off Old Battleground. You can get in up to a good 6-miler on this route.
All paces welcome! Open to Everyone! Free!
Runners get 10% Off their yogurt purchase after the run!
Each year RunnerDude's Fitness provides over 3,000 bottles of water and sports drink in coolers along the Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway each Saturday morning. Bags accompany each cooler so empty bottles can be recycled. Many runners in the community have helped through donations of water and sports drink and through monetary dontations to the Greenway Water Fund. The small 4oz bottles of water and the small 12oz bottles of Gatorade work best. Donations of water or Gatorade can be dropped off at RunnerDude's Fitness. You can also make a monetary donation by using the PayPal link below. A huge thanks to all who have made donations and contributions.
