Endurance Sports

Shawn Gerber is a nerd-in-disguise who fell in love with fitness and health early in his life and never looked back. He is the founder and head coach of Rare Air Fitness and Wellness, a company built on the belief that we all have the capacity to do incredibly great things if we would only make the choice every day to live a life examined and daily pursue what lies beyond our comfort zones.


Shawn specializes in coaching endurance athletes but is also passionate about helping the everyday person become the best version of themselves possible. While his focus is on endurance sports and developing efficient movement patterns, Shawn also strongly believes in approaching nutrition with the same intensity that we approach fitness.


Initially a football player with a love for the weightlifting, Shawn has completely transformed his body and is now a two-time Ironman with aspirations of earning the chances to toe the line both in Kona and Boston.
