It is not hard to run, you just put one foot in front of the other. So why would you hire a run coach if you already know how to do that? Here are the top reasons to hire a run coach.
- Avoid Injuries
Your certified run coach will objectively assess your fitness and set goals to maximize your performance while minimize the chance of an injury. Your coach has read the scientific research and has years of experience so they know how to safely increase your miles & pace.
- Maximize Performance
There is actually a good bit of science in how we can best boost our muscles. An experienced run coach knows how to mix different workouts to get your body performing better. It is not just about running more miles, it is important how and when we run those miles to maximize the benefit.
- Smart Support
It is nice to have cheerleaders but it is better to have a cheerleader that knows what to say & when to say it. A run coach knows when to motivate you to push harder and when to raise a red flag to make sure you respect the recovery which will recharge your body & make you faster.
- Recover From Injury
A run coach knows how to gradually reintroduce you into a training plan after an injury and more importantly how to correct the issues that caused the injury so we don’t repeat mistakes. You can focus on enjoying your runs and your coach will focus on making sure you aren’t making any mistakes.
- Get Speedy
Sure you can buy yourself a copy of Runner’s World magazine or follow some generic advice from a ten year old website. That generic information is rarely the best advice for you. A qualified run coach will learn about your running past and current fitness level before developing a custom training plan to make the most of your potential.
- Set & Meet Your Goals
A run coach knows what is achievable for your fitness. You can set your own goal but how do you know if it is too easy or too risky? A certified run coach will be able to set healthy goals and show you how to safely reach those goals to make your running dreams a reality.
- Training Consistently
Trouble with reaching your goals? A run coach can prepare an individualized training plan for you based on your fitness and your work & family schedule. Your coach can get you over those roadblocks that have sabotaged your previous running efforts. Consistent training will help you reach your finish line faster.
