Individual Run Coaching
Individual coaching is offered in person or online for $59 per month, with an initial three month commitment. If you compare this to your wintertime heating costs, $59 is an absolute screaming deal!
As an individual coachee, you'll have access to the following resources:
1) A face-to-face monthly meeting with Amy
The meeting includes a fitness assessment, a run, and a hands on demonstration of a new strength training routine.
2) Complimentary access to any current KVCoaching running groups, Run Pump, and Mixed Bag with Lynn
3) An individualized weekly endurance training plan
4) An optional individualized every-other-weekly strength training plan.
5) A weekly email or in person check-in.
6) All the support you could ever need.
Amy's primary goal is to make running accessible to anyone who has ever felt even the slightest urge to lace up their shoes and pound the pavement. Whether you run a seven minute mile, an eighteen minute mile, or you've never run a mile, Amy will help you (re)discover your potential. Using a combination of positive reinforcement and scientifically based training techniques, she'll lovingly push you to achieve the goals you never thought were possible.
Amy currently coaches runners in the 5k, the full marathon, and every distance in between. Holding firm to the belief that every person, and every person's body is unique, training methods are specifically selected and combined for each and every athlete. She works with men and women who run between 3 and 6 days per week, ranging in age from 17 to 75.
Based on her personal philosophy that success breeds success, training plans begin with 'small' and attainable benchmarks. As coachees gain fitness--and most importantly, confidence in themselves--the benchmarks become more challenging.
As a firm believer of moderation in all of life's undertakings, Amy and her runners are considered moderate mileage runners. Athletes aiming to simply finish a 5k might run 10-12 miles per week, while someone aiming to run a 5 hour marathon would top out around 50 miles per week. Again, weekly mileage is based on personal goals, abilities, schedules, and preferences.
She uses a wide variety of training techniques including, but not limited to: High Intensity Interval Training, Resistance Training, Speed Work, Tempo Runs, Lactate Threshold Training, Heart Rate Monitoring, The Galloway Method (run/walk), and Long Slow Distance (with a twist).
For the past 20 years, Amy has competed and been coached on a variety of levels--including the Division 1 Collegiate Level. She holds a current coaching certification through USA Track & Field and a personal training certification through ACE. Amy works with people of all athletic capabilities, but prefers the ones who start out by saying, "I'm not sure I can do this, but I'm sure gonna try."
Wouldn't you feel so fancy if you could look at your friends and say something like this?... "I'm sorry, but I can't do lunch, I'm meeting with my personal trainer today."
Now you totally can!
