How does online running coaching work?

With an online running coach, you get a personalized training plan and support to help you reach your goals.

Your coach learns about your goals and experience, and then builds a custom training plan for you in a user-friendly running app. This plan is designed to fit your lifestyle and tailored to help you meet your running goals.

 

You follow your schedule and track runs in the app, and your coach monitors your progress and adjusts your training as necessary. You’ll also have access via phone, email or text to ask questions as they arise. 

The result is a true 1-to-1 coaching experience that ensures you have the accountability and support you need to succeed.

  • What should I expect from a running coach?

    Expect a genuine person who is as enthusiastic and vested in your success as you are. We realize it’s important to be flexible with your training schedule, yet provide supportive accountability. From the latest science to injury prevention, you can trust you have an expert by your side every step of the way.

  • Is hiring a running coach worth it?

    Absolutely! If you’re serious about improving, a personal running coach is an investment in your success. A coach takes the stress and planning out of the equation, allowing you to focus on your running. Plus, you’ll receive around-the-clock support and a training plan that’s continually adjusted to meet your needs.
