Endurance Multisport Performance Center



ENDURANCE MULTISPORT PERFORMANCE CENTER at 850 Broad St. Ste 1, Emmaus, PA will be the region's only training facility specifically created for triathletes, swimmers, cyclists & runners to improve performance in the endurance sports YOU love!

For those who may not know me, I am the founder, owner & head coach of Endurance Multisport. On behalf of my coaches and staff, I am personally reaching out to ALL of you -- my fellow endurance athletes, friends, colleagues & associates -- to join us in establishing something truly awesome right here in eastern PA.

Our goal -- WITH YOUR HELP -- is to establish our facility as a USA Triathlon Certified Performance Center. There are currently ONLY 8 of these centers within the entire U.S. There are very extensive requirements to meet for the certification process, and we'd love to meet all of them!

Our crowdfunding effort is your chance to contribute DIRECTLY to building a facility designed for the express USE and BENEFIT of our own endurance sports communities while being rewarded for your donations.

Endurance Multisport Performance Center (EMPC) will offer endurance sport-specific training classes, lessons, and clinics to the public. It will also serve as HQ for our Endurance Multisport Tri Club, enmuRUN Team, Extreme Team, and coaching.

If you swim, bike, run, tri, du, CrossFit, obstacle or adventure race, row, etc., remember...

MORE Donations
= MORE and BETTER Equipment
= MORE Class Options
= MORE Performance for a Faster YOU!


ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE HELPS!
PLEASE NOTE:
100% of contributions received will be put into purchase of facility equipment and defraying opening costs. WE WILL OPEN this center even if we receive $0 in donations, because we want to provide our area's athletes with every advantage we possibly can. BUT THE MORE FUNDS WE'RE ABLE TO RAISE, the more AMAZING this place will be as soon as its doors open, and the closer we'll be to attaining certified performance center status!
