Why Choose Ed?
Supporting you with a friendly professional attitude and using open and honest communication to help you progress. I deliberately work with a small number of runners, in order to be able to build a strong personal understanding of each individual.
Coaching is much more than writing a bespoke training plan! Understanding your motivation, mentoring you and providing guidance that is in context to your lifestyle are the real value you will enjoy from working with me.
My background in Technology and Management give me a strong bias towards using data to underpin decisions. And to understand the science which leads to the data. This is particularly relevant to performance run coaching and helping you realise your full potential.
Working with me, you will be full informed and engaged in all the choices within your training programme. I believe it is essential for adult runners to know the Why and not just the What and How.
Choosing to work with a professional Coach is a significant investment of both time, money and energy, therefore it is important to have very specific goals and a coherent set of milestones to measure you progress with.
I am a very goal centric athlete myself and work well with others that drive on goals too. You will be challenged in the goal setting process, such that the final plan is robust, achievable and meaningful to you. This gives us both the assurance that the investment you are making is worthwhile and will deliver the outcome you are seeking.
