What separates me from other coaches, is my attention to detail. In a session with me, I will have you run through a number of drills that will help me assess your body type, your running form, your strengths and your weaknesses. From there I customize the workouts to create a solid foundation. Then we shift focus to increase your speed, acceleration and reaction time.
