Professional Athlete
2x Olympic Marathon Trials Qualifier (2016 + 2020)

My journey as a coach and professional runner began long ago when I tried to make it as one of the top runners on my high school cross country team. At the time, I had no idea what ‘real’ training was or what it would take to be a successful runner. Over time, I experienced and learned different training philosophies and found what worked for me.

Benefits

Accountability

This eliminates the time and effort you spend on distracting activities and other unproductive behavior. When we make people accountable for their actions we’re effectively teaching them to value their work. When done right, accountability can increase a runners skills and confidence. It keeps them on track so they can achieve their goals. This is one of our biggest strengths.

Accountability

Constant Feedback

Another thing that is beneficial to having a coach is the feedback they give you throughout training. Having someone correct your wrongs, or congratulate you on your rights, goes a long way. Also, the training schedule can get adjusted depending on how the runner is feeling.. Having constant feedback allows all of these decisions to be made. This is where we specialize in the most.

Accountability
Structured Schedule

Structured Schedule

One of the biggest benefits to having a coach is so you know what you’re doing for training. You can’t just use the same schedule as your friend if they’re training for a 5k and you’re training for a marathon. Also, “timing” is everything when it comes to peak races. You don’t want to be heading into your BQ race completely burnt out. Our goal is to set you up the right way.

Expert Knowledge

Expert Knowledge

Having a well knowledgeable coach is important because we know what to expect. We know how a runner is feeling at different points of training. For example: we know when a wall of fatigue is about to happen during peak training. During situations like these we communicate with the runner to make sure they understand that somethings are expected. Also, we have knowledge in other areas.

Questions?
Do I need a running coach?
We believe that all runners would benefit from a coach because we hold our runners accountable, use our expert knowledge, and provide constant feedback which will help any runner improve both physically and mentally.
How will I see my training plan?
You will have two ways to look at your training schedule. First, you will be sent a spreadsheet of the schedule to your email. Then you will have an account on our VDOT training platform where we will import the schedule.
How often can I communicate with you?
We typically communicate with our runners 5-6 times per week either thru phone, text, email, or VDOT. Mostly by text because usually easiest for most people.
How much do your coaching services cost and when will I be charged?
We charge a monthly fee for our services. $100 per month is the standard fee.
I’m sick or injured, what do I do?
This is where having a coach is important. Depending on how severe your sickness or injury is we"ll adjust your schedule to allow proper recovery. We believe health is most important, so until you're healthy we don't want to overdo things and set you back even further.
Can I reschedule a workout?
Training days can always be moved around. Our only rule is that we want the proper amount of recover between Quality Sessions...meaning you don't want to do back-to-back quality workouts. Other than that we're always here to make needed adjustments.
Can I skip part of a workout?
You're not going to feel your best for every workout. That's just how running works. There will be times where you're just not feeling strong. In these cases we will want to cut the workout short. The last thing we want is to force a workout and end up injured. So yes, sometimes you will need to skip part of a workout.
Is face-to-face coaching included in the plan?
This option is only available with the premium plan and it’s only for local residents of Lakeland, FL.
