The Benefits of Individualized Training Plans
Most training plans found in books, magazines and websites by necessity are based on the needs of the average runner. But is there such a thing as an average runner?

Some runners thrive on long slow runs, while others benefit from shorter, faster workouts. Some runners follow a consistent approach while others like to experiment. In other words, every runner is different. So why follow the same cookie cutter workouts?

Coach Paul provides individualized training plans customized to your running background, experiences and goals. Each workout is carefully designed around your needs and includes target paces. All training options include a form assessment using video analysis, and recommended workouts that will help you become a faster, stronger runner and help you to avoid injury. If you are recovering from injury, Coach Paul will work in conjunction with your medical professional.
