PHILOSOPHY (of coaching)
I don’t like the fact that I can beat people half my age in races. And I actually get annoyed when people ask me “Did you finish?” and not “What was your time?” It’s not that I see myself as elite, far from it. But I do believe that we ought to respect effort in ourselves and in others.
I don’t care if your new PR for the marathon is 5 hours 5 minutes or 2 hours 12 minutes, if both times are better than what had come before, that is all that counts. I frankly don’t think much of doing things without a mind to do them better. Still I see a lot of people who are genuinely trying their hardest to progress, at all levels, but are being thwarted by bad advice and mislead by the myriad of flakes within the health and fitness industry. As someone who has been lead astray I fully understand this and utmost in my mind is a simple philosophy: If I haven’t tried it and/or seen it really work for someone else, I will not suggest it to you. I will value your time and effort as I do mine and endeavor to always give helpful/practical and useful advice.
My coaching philosophy is based on my own experience and what I’ve learnt from people with smarts and ability. Yet I won't simply ask you to take me at my word. I believe you should listen to everyone but follow only what's best for you. If you enroll in my programs I won’t be asking you to follow me blindly. I want to work with you as I know that only a program that includes self experimentation, adjustment and bio hacking has any real chance of success.
I’d be lying if I told you it's going to happen overnight but I can make you a better runner. I hope you can join us because, in my experience, little in life offers us satisfaction like what working towards that goal does.
