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 two levels of training and online coaching support provide you monthly training plan and coaching support – choose from our ‘Gold’ or ‘Platinum’ plan depending on your needs.
HOW TO GET STARTED WITH OUR COACHING:
Ensure you have at least 10 weeks until your first important race. Then select your package and payment preference. 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 analyse your data, have an intro call together, and set you up in our systems.
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.

COACHING PACKAGES FAQ's
You will receive the first week of your training within 5 work days of confirmation of your order receipt and the rest of the first month during the first week of your training. Next week’s training plan is generally updated the last week of every month. Sometimes not all of a month will be developed upfront – such as in cases where René needs to see how you are doing for the first few weeks before developing the next weeks.
Returning customers will receive their updated plan within 2 weeks.
Both our Gold and Platinum packages offer a lot of interaction – only the degree differs – so check out the table on the product page to see which one suits you best.
Support is available within our business hours (10 am to 6 pm GMT) and we guarantee responses within 48 working hours although we try to respond quicker when possible.
Longer intro calls and shorter feedback phone calls are included in our training packages. These are available on request and will be scheduled in advance. For longer detailed calls beyond your normal service, purchase our ‘Personal coaching consult‘ service which offers you a thorough call with set agenda and a full call summary send to you afterwards or contact us for a bespoke package that includes this service.
We chose TrainingPeaks in part because they have a fabulous Help Centre. Whenever you have a question about how to use TrainingPeaks – technical issues or questions on certain functionality, simply go to the TrainingPeaks Help Center.
For optimum results you should be prepared to invest a minimum of 12 weeks but 16 and 24 weeks is even better. The longer your build up to a goal race the better your performance.
This type of support and training is ideally suited to busy lifestyles. It allows you to make last minute decisions / modifications to your plan when your life gets hectic and we target the key workouts which are important and feasible for the time you have available. You keep progressing while living your busy life.
We’re pleased to say we get the most dramatic results from people new to running and those who have not used structured training before. Be prepared to be amazed at what you are capable of!
RCI recommends Physical Therapy for those local to the Dublin area in JK Therapy, Tallaght, who can also look at your running biomechanics to identify the problem and get you back running ASAP. For clients outside this area, please liaise with your local professionals. If you do not have access to anyone, we recommend the two online systems Functional Patterns and Anatomy in Motion.
If you are expecting a longer lay-off you suspend your subscription and purchase the ‘Restart’ package when you are ready to go again.
Life happens, we understand if you want to stop or put your coaching ‘on hold’, simply suspend your coaching package at the end of the month. You can pick up where you left off when things get back on track by purchasing our ‘Restart’ package.
