Would Online Coaching Work for Me?
I was skeptical about online coaching. How could I benefit from paying for an online relationship with someone who lives over 2200 miles away? As a busy lawyer with young kids who gets to the office before the sun comes up and leaves after it goes down, was it silly to think my marathon goals were even attainable? Would a woman who ran 135 miles in the middle of Death Valley laugh at my goal of running a marathon in under 4 hours?
In the year I have been working with Lisa, every doubt has been erased. I couldn't be happier with her services. Unlike a book or magazine, Lisa works with the reality of my life and ensures that even in a world of change and uncertainty, my training stays on track. From going on vacation to an unexpected summer head cold, from a big trial that takes up more time than expected to the illness of a family member, Lisa has adapted my program to meet the day-to-day changes in my life. As a result, I can stay with the program, because for once, I found a program that is staying with me.
Lisa Keeps My Interest
She realizes that running is not just for health and goals; it should be a pleasure. She can tell from our back-and-forth emails to each other when I am craving a change or when my body would benefit from a new challenge! Lisa adjusts my training to include more of what I like and/or what works and helps me cut back or eliminate what I don't enjoy or what isn't working for my individual needs. I'm not a "one-size-fits-all" with Lisa; I'm an individual.
Lisa is Accessible
There may be many miles between us, but she's always only the click of a mouse button away for me. She returns emails faster than I could run a mile and in a year of working with her I've never had an email go unreturned or a schedule arrive even 1 minute late. She is totally reliable and totally consistent in her excellent service to me as a client.
Lisa Helps Me Reach Further
When I started with Lisa, my running lacked focus and direction. As a result, my running was in a slump, my fitness was declining and my waistline was expanding. I would run an occasional 5 or 10K - but I signed up for lots of races I never would actually run - and when I ran I was usually unhappy with the results. Since I started working with Lisa I have shattered by PR's. After every race I find myself rushing back to my computer so I can tell Lisa how, once again, she helped me not only attain, but blow away, my personal running goals.
Since I started working with Lisa, my running has a focus and stability that it never had before. Working with Lisa, I feel like I have a map. Like I have someone to help keep me focused. I used to run for a longer time but without direction and I would get less than impressive results that left me frustrated. Now my training actually takes me LESS time, but with far greater results. That means more time with my family on weekends. That also means a training schedule that can fit with my busy professional life.
I would recommend working with Lisa to anyone looking to improve specific athletic goals, to improve their fitness or simply get into shape. She is an amazing professional and a talented coach who will help you achieve your dreams.
