What do you get?
It is well known that we all respond differently to training and a training plan needs to reflect that. At Running Science, we take time to get to know our athletes. We learn about their individual characteristics such as training history, injury history, strengths and weaknesses and then incorporate these factors into a plan.
Aside from individualising training, we believe that it's important for an athlete to train according to a personalised approach that is realistic to their lifestyle, family, work, or anything that is important or may impact training. We deal with the human first, the athlete second.
Regardless of your ability - whether you're wanting to finish your first 10km, or win your first 10km, our mission is to help you achieve what matters to you. Part of our way of helping you do so is through what we call a high performance approach - meaning, we appreciate all aspects that make-up performance: injury prevention, mindset, goal-setting etc. This approach doesn't look for quick fixes, but rather continuous and sustainable improvement.
As a coach, we monitor our athlete's training via an online platform in accordance with an online training diary they keep. We follow-up with athletes before/after key training sessions and are available for them when they have feedback or questions. Staying in the loop with our athletes is an important way we can advise and adjust training along the way. We send our athletes their training on a week-to-week basis, which is line with their weeks availability as well as our long-term plan.
Our Coaching Philosophies:
- Build and maintain
- Train the athlete as an individual
- Modulation, variation, and balance
- Do what works, do what matters
- Enjoyment and improvement are synonymous
"As a masters athlete who has read much of the endurance training literature, I never really felt the need for a coach until my performances started declining in a way aging alone could not explain. I eventually challenged my assumptions, did some research until I got in touch with Running Science. Jono's expertise and know-how were immediately apparent, so was his individualised approach to coaching as he took the time to analyse my running history in detail before he built a training plan. This is the best value you will find in the coaching industry!"
"He developed a weekly training plan, with my input, which allowed for flexibility. It felt very much like a team effort, as he would often check in with me after training. I enjoyed that he incorporated the social groups I had already been running with into our training. His training also gave me a more focused approach to my running – especially because we varied the types of runs I did. I would definitely recommend using their coaching services, as I was thrilled with the result and achieved my goal. And I look forward to training with him for future races."
