Sweet Endurance was founded by Samantha and Jared Sweet after Samantha lost 140 lbs. that she had gained due to an auto-immune disease. As a college athlete she acquired her advanced degree in Biomechanics/Kinesiology where she learned the sciences behind coaching, metabolism, vO2, and body composition testing from a practical and classroom perspective. This has changed her life and allowed her to achieve her goals while giving her a unique perspective for teaching others how to succeed in fitness as well as life. After College, Sam fell in love with what she calls "bringing people into Samland". Racing, coaching and volunteering have allowed her to realize that she was born to make a difference. Through her personality and her generous heart she has amassed clients in 6 different countries with skill levels from Novice to Elite/Professional. She plans to keep improving the world throughout her lifetime.
Jared was a nationally ranked collegiate bowler as well as an Honor Student and Presidential Award recipient. Jared fell in love with Sam's enthusiasm for life and made run coaching a passion of his. Jared is triple certified in Wellness, Corporate Wellness, and Lifestyle/Weight Management and he is a USATF Developmental Coach. Jared is currently the vice president for the Las Vegas Track Club, as well as the 2011 Runner of the Year running 62 races. In 2015 Jared was part of the RNR-Competitor series Heavy Metal Hall of Fame series as well as participating in numerous 5k, 10k and ultra-marathon distance races
