Milton Keynes , United Kingdom
In 2019 I transferred skills built up over many years in my previous profession (Leadership roles in the Tech Industry) to pursue my coaching career full time. Since this day I have never looked back. I founded EdStivala.com in 2019 to serve the needs of Runners and Duathletes of all abilities in an imaginative and creative way, and have grown steadily month on month ever since. Using the best available technology, but always ensuring that coaching remains about human interactions.
My specialties include running specific development and am qualified as an England Athletic Age Group Coach, as well strength & conditioning coaching as a level 3 REPS accredited personal trainer. I also hold further qualifications in Nutrition and Swim Instruction.
As an amateur athlete I have been able to successfully balance my sporting aspirations with a demanding professional career and family life - now as a Coach I understand the challenges faced by time-crunched athletes.
During our initial consultation we will discuss your personality type, circumstances and aspirations in order to create a unique package of support and services that fit you exactly.
The uniqueness of my coaching business is the depth and UNLIMITED support that each athlete has access to. Appreciating that life sometimes gets in the way of training, but we also know that consistency gets results. So I always endeavour to put your schedule at the centre of your training design and support you in a way that complements your lifestyle. Flexibly, creatively and imaginatively.
To make UNLIMITED support possible, I work with a small number of athletes. Taking the time to know each one in detail and providing each with specific, science based coaching, critical data led feedback and thoughtful analysis. I have found that athletes who feel supported and understood are much more motivated and achieve better results. Ultimately that is why most of us work with a Coach isn’t it?
