Birmingham , United Kingdom
I coach athletes online in the US & UK. I work specifically with a couple of local athletes having watched them develop through their teenage years. I have one 18-year-old who runs sub 4 minutes for 1500m & a 16-year-old 400m runner who now runs 49.90. I used to coach two athletes who now run 1:50 (800m) and 28:47 (10,000m) respectively.
I charge £50 a month for online training and that includes a training peaks account. I also provide videos & principles for all S&C units.
