Why hire a running coach?

Having a running coach is not limited to elite athletes. Many runners, especially beginners, can benefit from a customized training plan. Besides helping you improve, ongoing feedback can help you stay motivated. Having professional guidance can also minimize injury, help you train smarter and provide accountability.

We offer two options: You can choose from a supported or unsupported training plan. Options are explained below.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH A SUPPORTED TRAINING PLAN:

Initial consultation to evaluate current fitness level and determine appropriate goals.

I will develop a customized training plan tailored to your lifestyle, goals, and fitness level. This is a dynamic plan that can be adjusted due to weather, schedule, or other factors. Coaching includes:

  • Unlimited contact with your running coach for questions, clarification, feedback, and support.
  • Nutritional and hydration guidance including race day fueling.
  • Injury prevention guidance.
  • Strength and flexibility exercises.
  • Mental strength tactics and exercises.
  • Racing and pacing strategies.

Cost is $125 per month, with no minimum time commitment required.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH AN UNSUPPORTED TRAINING PLAN:

If you prefer a training plan without feedback, or if you are looking for a less expensive option, this is for you. After an initial consultation to evaluate current fitness level and determine appropriate goals, I will write a personalized training plan.

Like the above, I will develop a customized training plan tailored to your lifestyle, goals, and fitness level. This is a static plan which means you receive the entire plan at once and are expected to complete the runs on your own, without feedback. This is a less expensive option for those who want a tailored plan, but do not need the feedback from a coach. These plans can be 8 weeks or longer.

Prices vary depending upon race distance and length of training plan requested, but you can expect it to be at most, $20 per week. A 10 week plan would be at most, $200.
