6 Reasons To Get a Running Coach

Updated: Feb 1

Are you thinking about getting a running coach?


Whether you are thinking about hiring a running coach for a short period or a long period of time, you can benefit from having a coach in more than one way. A runner of any ability level or experience can benefit from the experience of another athlete.


It's not too late to consider hiring a running coach to achieve your goals for 2022. If you are a first-timer running a half marathon, marathon, or longer, or an experienced trail runner with a few races under your belt looking to improve your race times or need race tips T.R.A.C. can help you develop a personalized coaching plan.


A running coach can help you in more ways than one. Check out these 6 reasons to get a running coach.





6 Reasons to Hire a Running Coach

1. Form

You need help with your form. A running coach can see what you may not be able to and help with pacing or possibly prevent future injuries.


2. Starting

You don't know where or even how to start. Regardless of your age, fitness level, or experience Total Running & Athletic Conditioning would love to work with you to get you on the right path to achieving your goals.


3. Improvement

You're running but not seeing any improvement. The body adapts and a running coach can certainly help with different strategies, coaching plans, strength, and cross-training.


4. Accountability

You need accountability. At Total Running & Athletic Conditioning we care about your success and certainly want to see you improve. Maybe you just need that little push on a day you don't feel like running (don't stress we all have those days) sometimes the hardest thing is getting out the door.


5. Experience

A good running coach has years of training and racing knowledge. Everything from nutrition and racing tips to gear and dealing with those issues no one wants to talk about.


6. Technology

Ever wonder which watch is the right one for you? Confused or simply overwhelmed by the number of options? Which running app should I choose? What about those chews and bars? Your running coach should have plenty of suggestions and can help you make the right choices and save you money in the process.
