Why Racing Too Often Can Kill Your Performance

I was first introduced to training zones as a young triathlete back in New Zealand. Even at a young age, the coaches emphasised the importance of training at different intensities. They were primarily interested in harnessing the potential of athletes in the most effective way possible.

Racing Is About Execution, Not Fitness!

In the early years of Coached, we noticed a strange occurrence among a number of our athletes. These athletes, who we tested in our Coached Lab, had emerged with solid test results. For some reason, however, their performance on the racecourse simply wasn’t meeting their expectations.

Introducing Coached Advisor David Chung

I only started running in my mid-30’s, and it’s been a fun and enriching 10-year journey so far! I ran to improve my fitness so that I wouldn’t get so out-of-breath while playing football… but then the football games gradually decreased and disappeared, and I started to enjoy running itself more and more, until it became my primary sport and passion!

Jason Chao’s Success Story

The old saying insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results rang true and I decided that I needed to better understand the science of endurance running in order to improve performance.
