Training Plans and Programs

GetFitFor5k™ – This is my free beginner 5k training program that is based purely on your level of experience not what someone thinks you should be able to do.  If you ever struggled with trying to keep up with someone else’s plan, try this one. It is based on your personal progression and is level based.  As you progress, you will advance levels.  Need another week? No problem.  Miss a week due to sickness, vacation or other life event that got in the way?  No problem. All you have to do is resume at the level you are ‘capable of’  and continue leveling up.

Runner Tune Up Coaching Calls – Need to speak with a running coach, but not interested in ongoing coaching?  If so, our runner tune-up coaching calls are perfect for runners who want to take charge of their own training, but have a few things they would like to discuss with a coach.  These 50 minute sessions can be used to discuss running, nutrition and fueling, weight loss, mindset or any topic health and fitness related.

Custom Training Plans – Our custom training plans are hand-built from scratch and uniquely tailored to YOU. We build plans based on your race distance, experience level, lifestyle and ability to train, training day preferences, and more.

PaceBuilders 1:1 Coaching – Our PaceBuilders Training Program is the most comprehensive training program you can get, short of finding a coach to work 1:1 with you during every run. Inside PaceBuilders, we coach you from your day to day workout instructions to fueling needs, injury prevention, mindset and more.
