The best way to be a part of what you want is to create it.



We started PR Endurance Sports to give athletes like us a home. A place where our personal and training values are reflected and shared:

  • Train Hard
  • Train Smart
  • Train Together
There isn’t a goal too audacious that a plan, a team, and work can’t achieve. We have the plan, we have the team, and our team will keep you motivated and accountable to putting in the work.

We believe that everyone is an athlete and everyone deserves personalized elite coaching backed by data, technology, and support.

About Austin
Austin’s successful athletic career spans from his distance running days at Katy High School to his days as a member of the Arizona State University Cycling and Triathlon team and now as a co-founder, co-owner of and coach at PR Endurance Sports.

Austin believes that any goal is achievable with a personalized plan, hard work and commitment. Over the course of his career, Austin has had the great fortune of being mentored and influenced by some of the best coaches in running and multisport and he loves sharing that knowledge with his athletes. “If you couple hard work with well written, customized training plans that use technology and data – the accomplishments an athlete reaches can surprise even them! I love being a part of it!”

The only thing that Austin loves more than coaching is his wife, Angie Henderson Parker – also a coach at PR Endurance Sports.

About Amber
It’s hard to image that a woman who is dominating the local swim scene like Amber Smolik – got her first swim lesson from her childhood dog, Canis at the age of 10. Amber claims that her water roots were born of necessity when her parents bought a home with a swimming pool. Whatever the catalyst – it set Amber on to become a competitive collegiate Division I swimmer and force in the triathlon community.

An equally skilled cyclist and runner – Amber’s joy, outside of her husband Russell, is coaching! True to her warm and genuine character, Amber is invested in the development of all of our athletes. “I love being a part of an athlete’s growth and transformation. It’s so exciting to see things ‘click’ and watch goals being met!”

  • 5+ Years – Competitive Cyclist
  • 4+ Years – Competitive Triathlete
  • Sprint Duathlon Winner
  • Multiple Olympic & Sprint Triathlon Finishes
  • Ironman 70.3 Finisher
About Alejandro
A few moments with Alejandro and it’s clear that he thrives in the face of challenge and meets it with resolve and determination; qualities he applied and continues to apply throughout his life across a number of sports (lacrosse, soccer, Olympic-level Tae Kwon Do) to his work as a research scientist at M.D. Anderson Hospital and a competitive cyclist and triathlete. These are also the same qualities he inspires and strengthens in his athletes. A consummate scientist, Alejandro extends his use of analytics from immunology and physiology to every aspect of training and racing. As he pushes his athletes to utilize data and technology to train smarter – he also pushes himself as a coach to continuously evolve to provide the highest level of coaching.

Some would say that his first love is data (which is true) but outside of the numbers – he’s a cycling and Fighting Irish fanatic. A respected member of the cycling community, you can find him racing as the team’s rouleur, off the saddle you can find him passionately cheering for his alma mater, the University of Notre Dame, and a proud and dedicate husband. Alejandro is also one of the founding owners of PR Endurance Sports and is thrilled to finally grow his passion of coaching into a home for athletes of all skill levels. “It never gets easier, you just go faster.” ~ Greg LeMond.

About Kay
If asked, she would never confess to being a runner or a triathlete – just someone who likes to train with her friends. An admitted “mathlete”, Kay believes this about triathlons:

“Training and racing are metaphors of life; you have to be dedicated, you have to put in work and there will always be bumps in the road. Just like our daily lives – you can’t be successful without a support system. If I had to ID one component of this very individual sport that’s undervalued – it would be ‘finding and training with a great group of people.’ Some days – the only thing that pulls you out of bed is your commitment to a teammate. When the gun goes off – it’s you against the elements and the course – but it takes a village to get you to the Start Line.”

Kay is a proud co-owner of PR Endurance Sports and can’t wait to help support each new and existing PRE athlete meet their goals.
