Our coaches create a season plan that structures your training around your planned races and goals. You’ll know when you’ll focus on a race-specific training plan, and when you’ll recover and maintain your fitness with a maintenance plan.
All Coached runners build a personalised training plan. Whether you’re new to running or aiming for a Boston Marathon slot, training for a race, or simply wish to maintain fitness, Coached provides you with a carefully structured and detailed training plan.
As many as 79% of runners get injured each year. That’s a lot. Most injuries are the result of structural and biomechanical imbalances. We address this by prescribing detailed and specific strength training sessions in your training plans.
Let’s face it; there’s lots of sh*t you need to get done each week and running is just one of those things. Life happens, and we understand that. You tell Coached how many times you want to train each week, and what days you want to do each session. If things come up or your plans change, you can easily adjust your training. If it’s major, our coaches are there to help you.
Most runners prefer to train by pace OR heart rate. At Coached, we advocate a hybrid approach. You train by heart rate during low-intensity runs and to pace for race-specific training. This best-of-both-worlds approach ensures the work gets done, while carefully balancing fatigue and the risk of injury.
If a run looks good, we’ll give you a like. When we see something that doesn’t look right or needs your attention, we’ll comment. You can also comment on your training sessions to provide context. For example, why you cut a session short or ran harder than prescribed.
If you’ve been feeling under the weather, are wondering what to eat, what shoes to buy or have questions about your training, our small team of passionate coaches is just an email or in-app message away. Unlike some coaches, we do not limit how many times you contact us in a week. If you have a question, you need an answer, and we’ll make sure you get it.
Coached is more than a training programme; it’s a virtual team. Every Saturday, join your coaches and teammates on Zoom. We share updates, athlete results, chat and answer questions. It’s great fun! If you miss it, we upload the video and a podcast of the session so you can listen to it during your next run.
The team Telegram group connects everybody. Chat with your teammates, share updates and useful articles you’ve read. If you’re struggling for motivation, the team is happy to provide you with a nudge in the right direction.
Mental strength and resilience are just as important as physical conditioning. We teach simple tactics for improving your mental game and managing pain.
Learn to fuel your body correctly so that you can improve fat burning, lower inflammation and recover optimally from training and racing.
Running performance is found in the balance of stress and rest. Our programmes have a strong focus on recovery so that your performance and health are never compromised.
Many runners get fit only to blow it on race day. Use our race execution strategies to maximise fitness on race day and perform at your potential when it matters most.
“Coached has made me at least 10 years younger! I feel fitter and more energetic since I joined them, and of course, run faster. Apart from the running side of things, tips on diet (focus on eating clean low carb) and recovery have been a life-changer. Also, a great bunch of coaches and friends to socialise with. My only regret is I didn’t join earlier.”
“I have been training with Coached since October 2018. Since then, I achieved several PB’s and my weight loss goal. The training plan is flexibile and it fits into my schedule.”
“Coached has helped me rediscover the joy of running again. Through their structured yet flexible training plan, I run injury-free, more efficiently, and have achieved some huge PBs at various distances. This is a personal breakthrough for me as I had given up running six years ago after my knee surgery.”
