OUR COACHING PACKAGES
You might have previously used a generic training plan or just tried to train on your own, but this upcoming event really means something to you. Work with your very own coach and join our ranks of consistently successful runners where you will use the world’s greatest and most proven training methods, custom tailored to your level of fitness to reach your goal.
Our five levels of training and online coaching support provide you monthly training plan and coaching support – the higher the plan the more interaction and support.
HOW TO GET STARTED WITH OUR COACHING:
Ensure you have at least 12 weeks until your first important race. Then purchase the ‘Onboarding’ package. I send you a questionnaire to collect information about your lifestyle, habits, holidays, family commitments your previous training and race results, your goals for this training period and any tune-up races you want to incorporate into your schedule.
We calculate your performance profile based on the first 4-week ‘onboarding’ plan. You then select the coaching support you want from one of our 5 subscription plans.
As long as you keep your plan active you will continue to receive a weekly training plan and our coaching support. The longer we work together, the better results tend to be.
Once you have your plan, you can access the services included in your plan. We keep in close contact through the industry-leading platform TrainingPeaks. We design a new training block ahead of every month based on your progress. Your training plan will be ever evolving to meet your needs.
