I have coached athletes of all levels from first time runners to athletes qualifying or Boston, high school state champions, and U.S. Olympic Trials Qualifiers. I treat every athlete with the same level of dedication, but I let their goals and training time availably dictate how we train. I do not train every athlete the same even if they have similar pr’s. I think confidence is a big factor in performing well, so if certain workouts have worked well in the past, we will continue to incorporate them, and if you had a bad experience with certain workouts we will try something new. I work with my athletes where they are now to get them where they want to be. No goal is too big.

Here is what you can expect working with me:

  • Injury prevention and running form drills.
  • Weekly video texts explaining what the goals are for the week, along with anytime communication with me.
  • Weekly updates to your training plan to make sure your training plan is on track with your current fitness to hit your goals.
  • Monthly zoom group coaching calls going over a variety of training topics with all of my athletes.
  • Goal setting to reach your dreams.

Although I have helped athletes of all levels reach their goals, I have particularly enjoyed helping athletes break 3 hours in the marathon for the first time when this was not even something they thought attainable because of where their pr’s were before we started working together.


Athletes have goals, but they also have a life outside of running. I work with an athletes family and life schedule to design a plan that maximizes their fitness within their life.


  • Former Division II Head Cross-Country and Track Coach.
  • Current Head Cross-Country Coach at West Torrance High School.
  • Have coached over 20 open and masters runners to breaking 3 hours in the marathon.
  • Coached Tyler Sickler to qualify for his first US Olympic Trials in the marathon.


I enjoy coaching athletes of all levels whether it is your 1st race or you have been racing for years and want to hit a specific goal. I’m a big believer in setting big goals and training hard to reach them.

    Cheyne has been my coach for the last 5+ years. I am grateful that I continue to grow and achieve what I want in my running – longevity, consistency and pushing myself. I appreciate how he works with me at the beginning of each year setting goals. He adjusts my weekly training schedule with the primary focus on finding a balance between running and living my life since I am not a full time athlete. There are seasons when I can run a lot and times when I have to run less but my custom training caters to what I can do with the primary focus of staying consistent. Looking forward to the next 5 years working with Coach Cheyne!

    Coach Cheyne has challenged me and my abilities which have led to several PR’s and a recent BQ time. He is very understanding when life gets hectic, but typically gets you back on track right away. My favorite part of working with coach Cheyne is his encouraging nature in things that I may have never tried on my own and his belief that I can continue to grow as an athlete.

    I’ve been so fortunate to have Cheyne as my coach and have PR’d in every race since working with him 6 months ago, including a BQ time in my last effort. He has experienced what it takes to run at an elite level, and has been helpful to guide my training, starting from “middle of the pack”. In the past I’ve followed training plans that lacked the specificity and nuanced coaching to yield greater results, which have ultimately left me underwhelmed with my performance. With Cheyne it’s been so encouraging to see sustained improvement, through methodical adherence to a plan. It is also humbling to share a coach with other accomplished athletes, and motivating to set goals next to them.
