Coaching is both science and art. We are all red meat computers and for the most part our bodies respond to the training given. However training is complicated, not everyone has the same genetics, background in sports or importantly the same life circumstances.
Each athlete is an individual and thus may need to start with different focuses. Planning takes time, and an understanding of matching your desired outcomes with your life circumstances. Not to mention the adjustments based on feedback, illness, injury that require knowledge and time in the trenches experience.
Coaching is much more than writing plans, and adjusting them. Coaching works when the relationship is built on trust and transparency. And one thing we have found true over the years is when athletes answer this question with a committed yes. Will you make the coaching worthwhile for you?
Big things happen.
We offer a coaching options to fit most budgets and needs.
With 1:1 coaching we work with our athletes to lay out the steps required to achieve the stated goals. With an understanding that real performance takes time.
At Endurance Specific we understand that data is important, but so is the written feedback. When it comes our athletes logs we are somewhat anal about the written word feedback because we understand that data only tells part of the story.
Due to the very involved nature of this coaching relationship we can only take on a small number of athletes per year.
1:1 Coaching by application
This is our more budget friendly coaching. You get weekly feedback / accountability via Training Peaks and we go over and respond to your “post activity comments and uploads” and give feedback and make potential adjustments to the plan.
$150/mth USD (coaching accountability) / 6 month minimum.
A cost-effective customized training plan.
Why customized and not simply “buy our Training plans”? Well we have sold our plans for years and while they work and work exceptionally well when followed. However, the biggest issue is we lay out our best plans but that doesn’t always fit your life circumstances or where you are starting from. Thus while the framework of the plan is great, the application and thus the execution of the plan may not be great and thus won’t give you the best possible outcome.
When the plan is changed. It’s not the plan!
While you won’t get the accountability with our coaching options above, you will get a custom training plan that is designed to fit your life circumstances and where you are starting from i.e. your training experience.
The biggest problem athletes face when building out their own plans is FOMO. You build out a plan and then an article comes out with this must do session. So you add that in, then you read something else and are like hmmm, maybe I need that too. Now you have a plan of confusion and instead of having something based on solid fundamental and that works within the confines of your life ie. a straight line from A to B, you are zig zagging your way or worse chasing your tail.
Our Endurance Specific customized plans avoid that.
If you’re new to training, or you don’t have the time or expertise to lay out your own plan, our 16-20 week event specific plans are for you.
Our custom plans aren’t only just for triathlon or ultra running. We have created custom plans for multi-day endurance adventures, gravel races, gran fondos, everesting (bike and run) challenges and more. If you have any questions, get in touch with me at kristian at endurancespecific.com
