Edinburgh , United Kingdom
I'm Irene, I'm a qualified running coach with an in-depth understanding of the human body and physiology as I am a Dr in Biomedicine, sports therapist and former MSc in sports science and medicine. Then, I perfectly know how to develop plans specific to my athletes' needs while preventing injury as much as possible. I also can help you to come back from an injury. Let me know what your goals are and then we can work together to make them happen!
I am Irene, I am 35 years old, born in Spain but lived in the UK for the last 10 years (currently in the beautiful Edinburgh).
I began my running journey in 2017. I have since competed in multiple type of events from short/long distances (up to 100K), on road/trail, and from less to highly competitive races. I have also a great understanding of the human body and physiology being a Dr in Biomedicine and Neurobiology and a former MSc in sports science and medicine. Then, I know how to adapt the training according to specific athlete's needs to make sure they succeed.
My coaching philosophy is training smart, potentiating the athlete capacities while preventing injury as much as possible. I prepare my athletes to become stronger but never forgetting about the psychological aspects, making sure they gain confidence and have the appropriate mindset for training and racing. I develop varied trainings that help athletes improve at different stages of their training. I'm all ears!, loving feedback from my athletes to work with them towards improvement, while having lots fun!
