I set up calls with a few coaching candidates to detail my history, my goals - running first marathon, and the amount of time I could devote to achieving my goal. From my initial conversation with Amy, I found her to be knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and supportive of my goals and I made the decision she was the right coach for me.
I started by sending her details of my runs before she put together a running program tailored made to better help me achieve my goals. My knowledge of running before I met Amy was extremely limited and she taught me different types of runs and the purposes behind each one. I’m 3 months in and I can say I feel very confident running my first marathon next month. I have run at speeds and distances I never thought were possible if it wasn’t for her coaching. Another part of the coaching I like is the weekly phone call, where we go over last weeks program before she explains the upcoming week. She is very personable and will give you many tips from stretching to nutrition.
Another part I like is that you get 10% off any store purchases which makes the cost of coaching even more affordable. I highly recommend private coaching to anyone looking to achieve their running goals!
