For the past 5 years I’ve been offering personal coaching. Training programs are easy to find (online, books, magazines) but for the person who wants more, I offer custom training programs built around your goals, timeline, schedule and other life responsibilities. Each plan is built around a relationship, a near daily communication of how things went, how things are going, how you’re feeling, etc. Without this relationship, it’s not coaching. I’ll come along side you, join with you and help guide you with my many years of experience and training. This helps the athlete focus on what really matters and takes out the guesswork.
Who would benefit: Any athlete who wants to get better. If you’re new to endurance sport or reaching for qualifications, Arete Endurance will help you reach your goals.
How is it delivered: One a week you’ll receive a plan for the coming week. This will be based on previous communication of how your week looks and is built around you. The plan is always in pencil and can change at anytime based on performance or schedule changes. Method for delivery is either Google Docs or TrainingPeaks. Sample of delivery is here, please remember plans are 100% custom to you so just an example. Training Sample Runner
What’s a plan look like: All plans will always follow a hard/easy schedule. Hard days are required to help push you to higher fitness but most follow with easy days to absorb and grow. 95% (my guesstimate, not scientific fact) of athletes train at medium levels (not harder enough, not easy enough) and get stuck in repetition and don’t allow themselves to grow and chase numbers (daily mileage for example) over performance. All Arete Endurance plans will avoid the medium, tedious training that is so easy to fall into when self coached.
What’s required from an athlete: Willingness to work; some way to record sessions (GPS watch, HR monitor, power meter, etc) and upload them to software; willingness to be honest and daily check in. Will integrate any of the modern training software/hardware into your plan.(Garmin Connect, Strava, Zwift, Trainingroad, Any Bike Power Meter, Stryd Power Meter, HR, RPE)
