Coach Bio

Head coach on the WRT- Running Coach project since 2016.

The training process starts with an interview to meet the runner.
If no issues identified which may require medical authorization, a physical assessment is performed using anthropometric and/or tetrapolar bioimpedance. We also assess VO2Máx and thresholds (these tests are then performed periodically).
After the initial consultation, an individual training plan is prepared according to the availability and objectives of each person.
