When you sign up for a Trainsmart coaching package with Active4Life you do not get the standard one size fits all training plans that you find for free or in a magazine. You as a runner have individual fitness starting point, goals, training history, training preferences and most importantly training capacity. As a coach, I take into account your weekly life rhythm in order to best schedule your training so that it is realistic to fit it all in,maintaining the joy of running and not adding additional stress which will only hamper improvement.

Driven by passion and pursuing excellence, I am the eternal problem solver, always trying to find ways to help each runner run easier, stronger, faster and with more joy!

My training plans have a clear, simple, progressive structure built on 30 years competitive and 16 years coaching experience. No bells and whistles and false quick success promises, only honest scientific coaching advice.

Every training plan is customized to your schedule, goals, current fitness, and specific race and includes speed work, long runs, specified paces and distances, and clear workout instructions.

Do you already have a plan, but need the guidance of a coach or have questions you need answered? I offer coaching consultation calls for R250/30 minutes.

Running improvement takes time. Some progress might be seen right away, but you need to allow a few months or more of consistent training to unlock your full potential. For specific race goals I recommend starting coaching 10-12 weeks before your race for half marathons and shorter and 14-16 weeks for a marathon or longer (18 weeks for novices).

If you are interested in coaching I would love to hear from you!
