Running is a simple and wonderful way to develop a healthy active lifestyle. If you have the running bug, want to how to run, or increase your running fitness or distance, you have definitely come to the right place.
I have been running all my life, both competitively and non-competitively. I have run races from the 1 mile to full marathon (42.2k). I have also completed two ironman-marathons...that is a 42.2km run after I rode 180km and before that, swam 3.8km. Crazy, eh?
The best part is with all that running, I've managed to stay injury free. This has nothing to do with luck and everything to do with how you run, how you train, how you recover, and how you fuel your body.
So why don't you check out the information below, and if you want to meet to discuss more, feel free to book a FREE 30-MIN CONSULT.

Private lessons are great for individuals who desire 1-on-1 instruction. Each lesson is 60 minutes with options to extend to 1.5 or 2 hour lessons (additional fees apply).
Semi-private lessons are great for adults who learn well with a partner or friend. It's also more social and great for people who can learn by watching others.
Each lesson is 60 minutes with options to extend to 1.5 or 2 hour lessons (additional fees apply).
There is a maximum of two adults required for semi-private coaching and maximum of 6 adults.
This program consists of 600+ minutes of coaching. It is divided up into 10 x 60 minute lessons. Depending on the goals, skills, and fitness levels of the clients, we can double up the sessions to make for larger lessons.
The program is available for both privates and semi-privates.
Within the program, I have 3 major areas of concentration. Clients who want semi-private lessons must all have the same concentration.
LEARN TO RUN: This is a 10=week program for beginners only. Clients need NO prior experience and do not need to have a high fitness level. Both fitness and form is built during this program.
INCREASE RUNNING FITNESS: This program is most excellent for people looking to increase their fitness level. Whether you just want to get faster for personal pleasure or participate in a running race, this is an excellent coaching package to get you there.
DEVELOP BETTER RUNNING FORM: This is suitable for clients who already have running experience but maybe have weak areas, such as slow cadence, bad running posture, low power, problems with pacing, etc. Lessons are catered around these weak areas and practiced until the runner gains more confidence.
Training programs are a great way to stay motivated to achieve a certain goal. You can follow them on your own or hire me in combination with private lessons or progression coaching plan. I develop personalized training programs to match the goal of the client. Fees start at $100, and depending on how much detail and length of the program the client wants, will depend on how long it takes me to designed the program and the final cost.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING SESSIONS
