Personalized training with coach Sandro Sket

Your race times have stagnated despite hard training. And you don’t know why.

You are not alone. Most runners are committed to improving their fitness but make cardinal mistakes in training that hold them back. Running may be a simple sport but that doesn’t mean running training can be simplistic. 

Profit from an expert coach’s knowledge and experience to get to the next level. A certified online running coach manages every aspect of your training so that you can focus on what you like most—running and racing. 

I made the coaching plans affordable for you. Weigh up the cost of falling short of your potential—or worse—getting injured? Trial and error are the enemy of consistent progress.

Elite runners have a coach. Why not you?

Reasons to Hire an Online Running Coach

running progress

Become a Much Faster Runner

Train for maximum effect. An online running coach improves your performance and prevents burnouts, so that you can make consistent forward progress.

running strength

Work on Strengths & Weaknesses

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.

Train Right for Your Age Group

Your age group dictates how often you can run, what workouts to emphasize, and the recovery time between your key running sessions. A coach fine-tunes your training so that you can absorb your efforts and stay injury-free.

coach adjustments

Stay Flexible

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.

Lifelong Endurance Athlete

I ran my first half marathon at age 17 and participated in Olympic distance triathlons as a teenager. I take pride in my masters results on low mileage training (25 miles/week): 400m in 53.8 seconds and the 10K in 34:32 minutes.

Hands-On Experience as a Strength & Conditioning Coach

I have hands-on experience as a strength and conditioning coach. Whether you have a gym membership or prefer bodyweight exercises, I'm familiar with all the running-specific strength, plyometric, and mobility routines.

track coaching

Seasoned Track Coach

I have coached runners in group settings since 2013. I have always had a knack for interval and repetition training on the 400m track. You will benefit from this experience, even if you prefer your intervals on the road.

What I Expect from You

race calendar

At Least 4 Training Runs Per week

For performance training I expect you to run at least 4 times per week, ideally with addtional strength and cross-training. Otherwise your potential to improve is unnecessarily limited even with excellent coaching.

Motivated by Challenging Goals

Motivation is the starting point for any achievement. While I can guide you to set new goals—and perhaps even inspire you, the core motivation to improve has to come from you. I can't do that for you.

The Discipline to Follow Through

In performance training one adaptation piggybacks on another. That means without consistency there is no meaningful progress. My most successful athletes are the ones without excuses.

Openness to Change

You can't expect getting different results by doing what you've always done. That doesn't mean we have to put your entire training routine upside down, but you will have to be open to change .

What Athletes Are Saying

Sandro’s expertise and attention to detail has helped me improve more than I had thought possible. Through his online coaching, I broke my 20 year 5K PR by 21 sec to 15:48. And with his plan, I was able to break my HM PR by almost 4 min to 1:14:29.

Shai Birmaher

United States

Sandro’s very well thought out coaching has assisted my running greatly, being able to fit my runs around the changing hours I work with my job. I am certain I would not have managed a 2:58 marathon PB at 45 years old without Sandro’s coaching.

Richard Leary

New Zealand

Following the competitive marathon plan helped me reach a new PR with a first place overall finish in 2:39:37 on a hilly course. Sandro’s scientific approach ensures that every run and workout has a purpose, arriving at the starting line fit, healthy, and fresh.

All coaching and communication is exclusively done by myself, Sandro Sket. You won’t have to talk to an assistant – ever! It’s my philosophy that knowledge work and expertise can’t be outsourced without compromising the quality of coaching. Hence, I can’t compete on price with some of my competitors. But I can assure you that you get the attention to detail you deserve to become the best athlete possible. For that reason 1-on-1 online coaching is strictly limited to 20 runners. 

Depending on your plan, the coaching subscription renews monthly or yearly. Feel free to take advantage of the 50% discount for the first month of the monthly plan to experience the coaching and then switch to the yearly plan with 20% savings whenever you like.
