About the challenge

As a 2x Olympian in the sport of Track and Field, my most asked question has always been, “Nick, how do I improve my mile time?”

Well, the wait is FINALLY OVER! I’m revealing my tips, tricks, and secrets to a FASTER mile. That’s right, I’ve written a 30-day program that is guaranteed to get you to a faster mile time. As always, this program is for everyone, no matter your experience level and I even have different workouts for low, mid, and high mileage. Sign up and join me for my 30 Days To a Faster Mile Challenge starting June 1!


Well done, everybody. I'm so glad I decided to do this challenge. It has bee grind and a half, but everyday I've done cardio I've followed it up with weight lifting. I'm in the best shape I've ever been in...
I can't believe it's over. Well done everyone! Thanks for all the inspiration
Let's goooooo!!!! Complete! It feels SO good! .5 walk, 5 mile run and 2.25 on the bike! Heck of a way to finish it off. Thanks for the opportunity and challenge Nick!
