Hire A Coach!
Maybe you’ve thought about hiring a running coach, but haven’t taken that important step in your training yet. We’re here to tell you all about the benefits of hiring a coach and why now is the time!
4 Reasons to Hire a Running Coach
- Improve Performance
Most of us need help when it comes to training for a race. Sometimes that leads people to search for training programs online, but those programs are not tailored to you and won’t necessarily be effective or even healthy for you. A coach works closely with you to tailor your workouts to your specific needs and goals, factoring in nutrition for a total approach that revolves around YOU! That means you can approach your race with confidence, and your coach can give you reasonable expectations about how to achieve a personal best.
- Avoid Injury
When training with a coach, a professional approach will help keep you from overdoing it and becoming injured. A coach knows when to tell you to take a rest day, or take it easy during a certain workout. They know exactly what your goals are and how best to achieve them, so you can trust that they have your best interests in mind. Avoid injury by listening to the coach!
- Train Responsibly in Summer Heat
It can be difficult to train in Florida’s summer heat, and sometimes people will push themselves because they think they aren’t doing as much as they were doing in the cooler months. A coach will help temper this tendency by providing appropriate summer workouts that will prevent you from getting overheated, dehydrated, and fatigued.
- Make friends
When training with a coach, one of the best aspects is meeting other runners with similar goals. When weekly events like speedwork or track take place, you’ll have the opportunity to train with other runners who are working with your coach. It’s a great way to make friends, receive encouragement, and cheer each other on!
