The Long Run offers professional coaching services from qualified and experience athletes and mentors.

static1-squarespaceWe have consistent, open communication with athletes and by doing this, understand you and the best ways to guide you towards achieving your goals. Through a personalised program we develop and improve your physical and mental strength, along the way eliminating personal doubt and increasing confidence in the face of new challenges.

Maximising success is our major focus, but along the way, we strongly believe that you have to enjoy the process.
Through countless hours of research, education and personal experiences we have developed an understanding of endurance running and the best ways to develop as an athlete.

Using consistent, open communication and targeted questions we identify:

  • Personal goals
  • Areas of opportunity and growth
  • Strength & Conditioning options
  • Areas to increases physical fitness and mental strength
  • How to better deal with the variables encountered in endurance sports
  • How to better enjoy your training and maximise your return on training input

We will then develop and discuss an initial personalised program, which will form the starting foundation towards you achieving your goals. Going forward we will communicate through a shared workspace. This workspace allows you, as an athlete to ask questions; view and comment on daily training sessions; view long term goals and the sequence of training phases that lead to the goals.

We update an athletes personalised training program weekly (or more frequently if required), based upon upcoming commitments and feedback from previous training sessions.
