“The coaching I received made me a better athlete, and what is more important a better person. This inspires me to pass on the knowledge I’ve gained over the years to others.” - Peter Russo

For over a decade, Russo Racing has been sharing this knowledge through personal coaching athletes of all levels.

At the end of 2019, my family had the opportunity to relocate to Tucson, AZ. As a life-long New Englander, it was a difficult decision...okay, it was the middle of winter, and not that difficult a decision. I previously ran training camps in Tucson, and fell in love with the area. Moving here full-time provides me an exciting new opportunity to expand my coaching services to include new friends & athletes, more training camps, Swim Smooth video analysis and swim groups (in outdoor pools), and expanded running & triathlon coaching.

I will be traveling back to New England regularly to allow for meeting with athletes and Swim Smooth video analysis. I coach athletes on a global basis, so regardless of your location, we can help you reach your potential.
