As a Certified Running Coach, Andrew Taylor’s responsibilities to all of his athletes. At the core of these responsibilities he strives to:
Be Honest. Transparency is the key to a successful coach-athlete relationship. Whether it’s telling an athlete that success may not come as quickly as expected, or telling the athlete that they don’t have the knowledge to answer a question, a coach has to be completely honest with an athlete.
Educate. This is probably the number reason why athletes seek to hire a running coach. You want to know the correct workouts to do and when to do them. You may also want to know why you are doing certain workouts. A running coach should provide you with that education as you go. At the same time, a running coach may not have all the answers or be qualified to answer your questions. In these cases, the coach should be able to refer you to a qualified resource to help.
Athletes have responsibilities when working with a coach. This is what makes the coach-athlete relationship work. An individual seeking a running coach should be:
- 100% committed to running.
- Receptive to guidance from a certified running coach.
- Committed to being the best runner they can be.
- Willing to keep an open line of communication with the coach.
- An in-depth strategy session to discuss your goals and plan to achieve them.
- Personalized training plan with workout paces and distances appropriate to you.
- Complete detailed warm-ups, cool-downs, and cross-training workouts appropriate to you.
- Assistance with race selection and properly planning out a race calendar.
- Establishment of proper training paces to help you run faster, recover quicker, and stay healthy.
- Unlimited communication with Coach Andrew via Final Surge.
- Check-In Meetings: Option for up to two 30-minute Zoom video calls or phone calls per month. Or if you are local to Modesto, CA this can be an in-person consult.
- Ongoing expert analysis and feedback on your runs and GPS data.
