Gold Run Coaching
Upon signing up, you will receive an in-depth Athlete Questionnaire. Your coach will review this and schedule an initial consultation at your convenience.
Weighing your current fitness level and goals, your coach will create a training plan using the same methodology that I have used to train elite athletes for years.
Your schedule is then uploaded to our platform where you will see all activities, including cross-training & rest days. Workout results are synced for your coach's review.
Your plan is never stale. A consistent feedback loop ensures that your training evolves as you grow stronger and faster. Your coach will refine your plan with you during weekly reviews*, and adapt the following week's workouts to your evolving needs.
*Weekly Plans Only

I believe in every single product and service that I offer. If you aren't satisfied, reach out to me and I will do my best to fix it. If I'm still unable to fulfill your expectations, I will refund your last month's payment. No questions asked.
Not necessarily. In order to maintain the highest level of personal attention, I have assembled a team of Master Coaches to assist me. Simply put, I believe in quality over quantity. All of our coaches have been certified by me and I personally review all training plans before they are sent out to our athletes.
You will be assigned to a coach that uses my methodology and has availability on his/her roster to deliver the results that you and I expect. If at anytime you have concerns, I am available to make sure your training is on the right track.
