5 Reasons to Hire an Online Running Coach

running progress

✔ Continuous Long Term Improvement

While a generic training plan is a great tool to prepare for events 8 - 20 weeks ahead, it doesn't come with a strategy beyond your next event. An online running coach takes the long-term view for your performance improvement.

running strength

✔ Train According to Your Runner Type

Does endurance come naturally to you, but you're struggling with speed? Or vice versa? A coach addresses the specific needs of slow-twitch and fast-twitch runners. That significantly lowers your risk of overtraining and injury.

✔ Train According to Your Age

Your age group determines, to a large extent, how many days you run per week, what workouts you should emphasize, and the recovery between hard workouts. A coach fine-tunes your training for a successful and long running career.

coach adjustments

✔ Instant Reaction to Unforeseen Evens

A generic training plan is an educated bet on the future. But unexpected events occur, such as illness, injury, or work and family commitments. A coach constantly adjusts your training plan so that you recover quickly from minor setbacks.

personalized feedback

✔ Feedback & Accountability

Does no one on social media care about the splits of your latest track workout? Don't worry. An online running coach will analyze all workouts in your training log and correct you, if necessary. That way, you will shine on race day.

I help you achieve your ideal racing weight and ensure a fast recovery from workouts by optimizing your meal quality, meal composition, and meal timing. I also advise on which supplements are effective and which ones are not.

✔ Lifelong Strength and Endurance Athlete

track coaching

✔ Hands-On Experience as a Track Coach

I have coached runners on the track in group settings since 2013. I have always had a knack for increasing raw speed and maximal aerobic capacity (VO2 max) for my athletes, which is harder to improve than general endurance.
