Dr. AJ Gregg, DC CSCS & Dr. Wes Gregg, DC
Northern Arizona Elite’s Official Strength & Conditioning Coaches

At NAZ Elite we recognize that to compete at the highest level and to reach your absolute potential as an athlete, a runner needs to do quite a bit more than just run. Each of our athletes gets a personal assessment to determine strengths and weaknesses and they have individualized programs based on these findings. Long term, these programs will help our athletes stay injury-free and may just be that extra one percent they need to set personal bests, make World & Olympic Teams and eventually compete for medals.

Do you live in Flagstaff? Are you coming here for a training block? Dr. AJ Gregg and Dr. Wes Gregg are experienced chiropractors who particularly enjoy working with endurance athletes…of all ability levels. They’ve worked with some of the nation’s very best and are passionate about not only getting you back out on the road after an injury, but getting to the root of any problems you may have so you can stay healthy for a long, long time. Check out their website and make an appointment today!

Diablo Burger

Diablo Burger has become famous for fueling the world’s best endurance athletes when they train here in Flagstaff. Our team members love to hit up Diablo after a hard workout or a long run for the best and healthiest burgers in town. And with gluten free buns and a focus on local ingredients, you know this joint is one of Steph’s favorites! She recommends trying The Ziggy Stardust with bacon, avocado and grilled onions.

In both 2017 and 2018, we were the recipients of funding from the Houston Marathon Foundation. Those funds allowed us to boost our travel budget in 2017 which, among other things, allowed us to send three athletes to St. Moritz, Switzerland for two weeks to adjust to the time change before the Frankfurt Marathon (where they all ran well!). In 2018, the funds allowed us to purchase a sauna and add comprehensive blood testing to the amenities we offer our athletes. Thank you Houston Marathon Foundation!

In February of 2016, Running USA presented the prestigious Allan Steinfeld Development Award to our team at their annual conference. We were pumped! The award comes with a $25,000 grant that we’ll use over the course of 2016. In particular, we will use it on travel to send our athletes to the meets and races that will help them take the next steps in their careers. Thanks Running USA!!

In both 2015 and 2016 we were fortunate enough to be one of the U.S. distance groups to receive the New York Road Runner’s Champion’s Circle Grant. The 2015 grant money was put into our general fund which helps us with travel, massage/chiropractic work, housing stipends, etc. We have earmarked the 2016 funds to help us with our trip to Oregon for the Olympic Track and Field Trials.

In 2015 our friends at the Road Runners Club of America chose our group as one of five teams to receive a $5,000 grant for continued development. Like the NYRR grant, the money was put straight into our general fund which helps us with travel, massage/chiropractic work, housing stipends, etc. Over the years, several of our athletes have also received the RRCA “Roads Scholar” grant which goes to up-and-coming U.S. distance runners with a focus on road racing.
