Endurance Coaching

Online endurance coaching and consultation tailored to YOU.

I offer personal coaching to provide athletes with a custom training plan and regular feedback. I also offer consultation if you have a one-time question or simply want periodic training guidance. I am available for coaching consultation for teams, and in-person workshops with running and Nordic ski teams. Details about all of these options are below.

“Your magic really works! And it has not been difficult or painful at all. You are awesome Carly!” -Vivian, athlete

“Wow! Working with Carly has been a life-changer. After working with Carly for only three months, I took three and a half minutes off my previous half-marathon time which I had run nine months earlier on much easier terrain. Not only is Carly a fantastic coach and trainer, but we also developed a close friendship. I always look forward to talking with her.”

Personal Coaching

Maybe your goal is a 5k PR, or to prepare for your week’s vacation hiking in the Alps. Maybe you need help dropping that weight, or want to finish a half marathon with your daughter.

Those kinds of goals deserve elite-level attention from your coach.

I spend over ten hours designing the first 12 weeks of training for my athletes, and I work throughout the week to answer all questions, give detailed feedback on your training log, and make updates to the training plan in response to your adaptation to the training.

My training and coaching philosophy centers on individualization and flexibility. Your plan is designed for YOU, and can be easily incorporated into your regular schedule. You can:

  • Choose a training schedule that fits your life
  • Make last-minute changes
  • Skip and reschedule workouts guilt-free

As a virtual coach, my goals are to

  • Provide you guidance, accountability, and feedback
  • Encourage consistency
  • Monitor your training to find mistakes that may be costing you
  • Answer all your questions
  • Teach you the concepts behind your workouts
  • Give you flexibility! Your training is part of your lifestyle

I currently offer two levels of personal coaching, depending on the level of attention the athlete desires.

With the Basic Coaching Package, you will receive:

  • A free initial consultation to help me determine your athletic goals, current physical fitness, and available training resources.
  • A fully customized training plan for a twelve week period.

Your plan comes with detailed information about how to get more out of the workouts you perform. This includes a day-by-day breakdown of each workout, including the basic physiology backing each workout so you understand why each workout is a step toward achieving your goal. Additionally, your plan includes information on intensity (interval) training, strength workouts, injury prevention, rest and recovery, nutrition, how to write a training log, and how to reschedule workouts. Photo and video instruction along with charts and checklists are also included.

Who should this level? This option is ideal for athletes with a specific and challenging goal that requires personalized attention. It is also a good option for anyone making changes to, or just beginning, a training routine, as the period of transition is a critical one for avoiding injury and developing good training habits. 

With the Gold Coaching Package, you will receive:

  • A free initial consultation to help me determine your athletic goals, current physical fitness, and available training resources.
  • A fully customized training plan for a twelve week period.
  • Regular feedback from me. This includes:
    • Instruction on filling out an online training log
    • Regular comments and feedback from me on your recorded training
    • Unlimited consultation via text, email and video chat.
    • Optional in-depth work for specific goals such as weight management

Gold level coaching will teach you why your workouts work, not simply how to follow a plan. This is the place to be if you’re ready to improve your physical training, recovery, goal-setting, strength training, and injury prevention, and get more out of the work you’re already putting in.

Because it is my goal to develop a close relationship with the athletes I work with, I can accept a limited number of athletes for Gold Level personal coaching. If you are interested in Gold Level, please fill out this form and I will be in touch to continue for free initial consultation.

Who should choose this level? This plan is for athletes who will benefit from a high degree of attention, support, and accountability. Many athletes train more effectively when they have a coach to report to at the end of the day. As your personal coach I can offer just that, giving you feedback on each workout and making adjustments to the plan as needed, in addition to being available for all of your training questions.

Additional Details

My specialties as an athlete and a coach are running and Nordic skiing, and I am excited to work with runners and skiers with fitness goals and/or competitive goals of any level. I provide coaching for all other endurance sports aimed at basic fitness or recreational competition goals only.

All training plans begin with a minimum 12 week period. Additional 4 weeks periods can be added.

In some cases I may be able to modify either the Basic or Gold Level training programs to better fit your athletic needs or budget. Please be in touch with questions.

Consultation

One-time or periodic consultation is available independent of or in conjunction with a personal coaching program. Consultation is best suited for athletes with one-time questions about training or who want occasional feedback but do not want the structure of a personal training plan, or for athletes with a Basic Level training plan who wish to address a specific question or goal in more detail.

Work with Teams

I am available as a remote coach consultant for clubs or teams. I can help you design a training plan to best suit the needs of your athletes.

I also work with teams in person through one-time or recurring workshops. I have enjoyed working with both running at Nordic ski teams at the Junior and Master level. To find out if I am available in your area, contact me.

All programs come with a 100% money-back guarantee. I believe that if you are doing the work, you should be improving and learning, bottom line.
