How Does Online Running Coaching Work?
Updated: Dec 29, 2021
Our Premium Coaching takes your running to the next level.
Let’s look at how it works
Once payment is setup, you’ll be directed to our Training History & Goals Analysis Questionnaire.
The questionnaire will ask about your:
Goals and Races
Preferred Running and Rest Days
Current and Peak Fitness Levels
Cross Training & Strength Training
You’ll also receive an email invite to create a Final Surge account. This is the app we use to:
Distribute your running, strength and cross training workouts
Monitor and track progression
Serve as the main avenue of communication between you and your coach.
That same day your coach will reach out via email or text to introduce himself and offer to setup an intro call.
Your dedicated coach will go over your questionnaire and ask any further training questions if needed.
He will have your first two weeks of training in your Final Surge account within 24 to 36 hours.
All our programs are 100% custom. No two training plans are alike.
Your program is built using the information you provided in your Training History & Goals Analysis Questionnaire and during the intro call.
You’re off and training with your new personal running coach!
Let’s take a look at what your training may look like.
Depending on your ability your training is variety filled with:
Active Isolation Stretching
Have a hectic or always changing schedule?
No problem. We can plan your workouts around the busiest of schedules.
Just let us know when you can workout and will take care of everything.
Can a training plan do that? I think NOT.
We have instructional videos for all our strength and cross training.
You can connect your GPS or Strava to Final Surge for hands off uploads for your coach to analyze.
Your coach gets a notification every time a run uploads.
He will review your run and comment EVERY DAY!
Again, NOT something a training plan can do.
There's also an easy-to-use app.
Viewing your workouts and communicating with your coach is easy as texting.
You’ll also have your coaches cell phone.
Have pre-race anxiety? Everyone does.
Not to worry.
You'll get pre-race advice and pacing from your coach to calm your nerves and feel confident about crushing it!
No training plan can do that.
Premium Coaching is much more effective than training plans. Here's why...
1) Your coach uses your feedback on each run to adjust the difficulty of your future workouts and training volume.
Training plans DO NOT! Training plans assume a fixed level difficulty.
2) Your coach holds you accountable and provides encouragement to get you through those tough days. And there will be tough days.
Training plans WILL NOT! Out of sight out of mind.
3) Come raceday your coach gives you a pacing and mental tactics plan based on your training.
Training plans DO NOT! Might as well flip a coin.
