Peak Coaching - $175/month
The complete and unlimited coaching option. Peak coaching is your best option if you desire unlimited communication and frequent accountability, have struggled with injury currently or in the past, lead a busy lifestyle and need to allow for frequent scheduling adjustments, desire to learn about fueling, technique and form, heart rate and/or perceived exertion training, race strategies, etc., and/or if you are seeking the highest results possible.
Peak coaching includes:
Initial set up to thoroughly understand your individual needs, desires and goals: First you fill out a new athlete questionnaire, then we'll schedule an initial consultation. After that I set you up with your first week and create a strength routine specifically for YOU, followed by more frequent communication in the first few weeks to ensure everything is just the way it needs to be moving forward.
Schedule created week-by-week based on previous weeks’ accomplishments, current fitness, weather and specific needs for the week.
Unlimited communication via email, text or phone
Unlimited plan adjustments so your training is constantly in sync with your life
Initial + periodic field tests to determine specific HR zones and to check progress (if training with HR)
Analysis of key work outs (tests, speed work, long runs) using TrainingPeaks advanced software
Frequent (most days) post-work out feedback on TP so that you know your coach is seeing and understanding the work that you are putting in.

Consultation or coached run - $50/hour
Consultations can be done over the phone or in-person. A consultation gives you one hour of one-on-one time with coach to discuss specific topics such as goal setting, event calendar planning, heart rate-based training, periodization, injury prevention tools, mobility and recovery, race nutrition, etc.. Consultations include an emailed document summarizing discussions.
Coached runs are typically designed to practice form and running technique, but can be used to discuss any of the above topics as well.
Consultations or coached runs can be added on to Peak Coaching or a Custom Plan, if you desire additional support that is not included in your current plan. A 10% discount will be applied for athletes currently following a custom plan, and a 50% discount will be applied for Peak coached athletes.
