A Personalized Approach
We will start with a personal one-on-one coaching session to understand in what situation you are currently. It’s important to take into account not only your fitness level, but also your daily routines and work situation. If you have an office job, most likely you will be sitting at your desk 80% of the time. Maybe you had some injury in the past or you are already training regularly.
Body and Performance Assessments
The purpose of any body or performance assessment is to see and understand more about your body type and the fitness level you have. Below you find some examples to give you a better understanding.
Posture and Movement
Heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) are strong indicators of your cardio-respiratory fitness. Especially for endurance sports, HR zones are crucial to determine and measure your training intensity.
Body composition refers to the percentage of fat versus fat-free tissue in your body.
Muscle imbalances that cause compensated movements are identified and targeted to design suitable exercises.
Strength, agility, power and muscular endurance.
Setting a SMART Goal
Once we have fine tuned your physical activity readiness, we’ll look at what you would like to achieve and what your objectives are. Each goal is very personal, but we will make sure it is a SMART one. Your goal should therefore contain the following characteristics:
Example Goals for Beginning Endurance Athletes
- Running a marathon
- Running 5, 10, 15, 21km, etc.
- Participating to your first triathlon
- Improving your general fitness level
As a triathlete and passionate runner myself, I know the challenges beginning endurance athletes can face when it comes to the importance of goal-setting and consistent training. Sometimes it’s not clear what your “goal” is and it might be hard to understand why it’s so crucial to think about before you start training. I highly believe that consistency is key in training, and when you know what you are training for, you will be successful.
Having a Personal Coach by Your Side
With the objectives we establish, we create a clear starting point from where to begin our journey together. Next we’ll make a plan on how to achieve your goal with small and realistic steps. We will evaluate your progress during online sessions and determine what you will do during your individual training sessions at home.
