Coaching programs

Some studies suggest that about 50% of all regular runners will be injured and have their training interrupted within the first year. That’s significantly higher than other sports like swimming or cycling. Especially the beginners or the runners who want to progress their running skills often get injured. Of course every sporting activity brings a risk for injuries, only the repetitive cyclic sports like running have an high injury rate on overuse injuries. Monitoring training load, acting on warning signs, improving biomechanics and running technique can help to reduce the risk of sport injuries.

Why should I use a Coach?

The most endurance athletes are self-coached and rely on their own program/knowledge. Maybe they have a sports-club session occasionally to keep them on track. There is no doubt that this approach will result in you making it to the start line, hoping you have not injured yourself during the training period! But the question is, if this approach results in you getting maximum enjoyment out of the sport where you have committed a lot of time and effort in? Looking for expert advice/guiding from a qualified coach is becoming more common in endurance sports and is no longer only reserved for the elite. With the right guidance you can enjoy your sport more and train more effectively.  We are a team of experienced and knowledgeable coaches/trainers with different set of skills to help you in this process. We have seen the benefits for athletes at first hand and have six top reasons why you should invest in a sports coach.

  1. Motivation You and your coach will work as a team to design the most suitable and rewarding path through your training-season. A good sport coach will always be there when you need him/her. Remember you are both working together to achieve your goals.
  2. More Focus Your training will be built around your schedule, ability and motivation. No longer will you be doing sessions that are not suited to you as an athlete. A coach will understand you as a person(with your weak spots/strengths) in order to get the best athletic performance out of you.
  3. Train efficient Train smart rather than train more. There are a lot of committed athletes who over train and go beyond what is athletically and physiologically beneficial. Not only will “smarter” levels of training result in better performances and faster progress, but it will leave you with more free time to enjoy life outside of sports. Yes, there is a life beyond lycra and compression!
  4. Push beyond your limits A sports coach will keep you accountable to the sessions that are planned, meaning that you might think twice about brushing off that early Saturday morning session in favour of having a lie in. Linked to this, is the fact that a coach will allow you to safely push the limits of your comfort zone. A knowledgeable and experienced coach will set you to sessions that you would otherwise avoid if you would be in charge your own training. This will ultimately result in a better performance at race day.
  5. Enjoyment. A coach will ultimately lead to you getting more enjoyment from your training/sport. Rather than quitting when things get tough or burning yourself out over a short period of time, a coach will guide you successfully through season after season of fulfilment and fun. If you are not enjoying it, you do not want to continue!
