Boutique 1-on-1 coaching for people with special requirements or injuries; "interesting" goals; and especially people with outrageous goals that need a coach to pace them at races.
Are you looking for a supportive, fun, patient coach that can provide instant and personalized feedback by running, hiking or pacing you at races?
Do you need an experienced coach that had been there and done that with injuries, nutrition ... long & shorter distances ?
I love to teach, I love to coach, I love to find the root cause of each issue, find a solution and explain it back. Let me fine-tune your training . Email me at BogieD@Gmail.com and let's see how I can help.
I WORK WITH
My passion is to help people with special requirements or injuries, with "interesting" goals, and especially people that have outrageous goals and need a coach to pace them at races.
Experienced trail runners who want to try ultra-running (50K to 100 or 200 miles )
Injury-prone runners who want to safely increase their distances
Moms and people running with a Baby Jogger
Walkers and Race Walking
HOW AM I DIFFERENT ?
I offer coaching for everyone, not just good experienced trail runners
I will coach only 3-4 people a month so you will get more attention.
You will get more time on the phone with me to ask me questions ( rather than emails).
If you are local , I will do my best to run with you to answer questions, look at your form, at how you run, at your pose, how you use the hiking poles, and so on.
I am willing to pace you or run a whole race with you. This is super important
I have been slow, chubby, injured, had problems with knees, back, hip. So I can understand many of the issues you are going through

A doctors notice or a signed affidavit from you , that you are fit to exercise. Best and what i super strongly recommend regardless of age or fitness is a stress EKG test
Since we can only improve what is measured, you will need a GPS phone/watch/tracker to log all your runs. Any phone in Airplane mode lasts for 10-12hrs on Strava
For advanced runners, an HR monitor is strongly encouraged
