REMOTE RUNNING COACHING

Throughout my running career, I have had many successes, failures, highs and lows in long distance endurance running, but it was through these experiences that I’ve developed into the person I am today. I have set up James Gibson Coaching to share my passion, knowledge, experience and motivation to support your journey to achieve your goals, whatever and wherever it may be to become an even better athlete.

 

I believe that the key to a successful coach and athlete relationship begins with communication. With this in mind, I will first look at getting to understand you, what your goals/ ambitions are, what motivations you have and most importantly what are your commitments, life get’s in the way and that’s fine, so I will work collaboratively with you to build a relationship with flexibility in mind.

There’s no denying that this coaching process will take hours of dedication, perseverance, commitment, passion and teamwork, but through a personally designed training plan that’s based around your targets, time available and location, we will work together to help you meet your long term goal. Through endurance based training methods backed by science, I will provide you with blocks of training and recovery shaped around your commitments and lifestyle, whilst keeping sessions fun and interesting. Support is always available and honest feedback will be provided to help you stay on track. I believe in being flexible and if necessary adapting the plan to help you accomplish the best results.
