Run Coaching: How it Works

Coaching

The personal running coaching is done through email, skype, and phone. Running programs are available as shared files on google drive or Training Peaks. Training is available to high school through masters athletes, whether you're recreational, wanting to win your age group, or you're an elite athlete. One-on-one personal training is also available to local athletes.


We are based in Dallas, Texas but train people as far away as Australia! Distance isn't a problem - especially if you're trained by us.

Weekly Programs

Each week you will receive a training program based on how you are responding to training. Based on your individual strengths and weaknesses we may focus on activation, flexibility, foam rolling, plyometrics, sprint drills,  or strength training, in addition to more traditional aerobic building, hills, threshold, and VO2 sessions. Our philosophy is to go after your weaknesses and make them strengths!


Programs also take into account things like travel, work, and school. Are you traveling through the weekend? No problem, we can individually tailor your program so it works for you.

In-depth feedback and communication

As in all good relationships, communication is key. Stride Strong run coaching provides regular feedback on how training is going and any areas to work on. In addition, we utilize a weekly training survey which helps assess how you are doing.


Any athlete knows the commitment required to achieve a goal. At Stride Strong Coaching we buy into that commitment and are here for you. We are here to help all ages and abilities achieve their running-based goals.


Smart data for smart training

All programs can be accessed using Google Drive or Training Peaks, depending on what you sign up for. Both options allow you to see what's coming up from any device, although Training Peaks is more integrated. 


All our athletes are either on Strava or Training Peaks, which allows easy access to training data. By combining GPS, heart rate, and subjective self-evaluation data we are able to assess how you are responding to training and customize your program to suit your individual needs. Training Peaks has additional metrics which are tracked, if you are more into data!
