FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW ARE YOU ADAPTING YOUR COACHING FOR COVID?
There's never been a better time to get outside, build endurance, and work on personal strength & endurance skills. Coach Keith's virtual workouts are well suited for our new socially distanced reality. While races are on pause, now is the perfect time to improve performance, so you're ready to go once races resume.
All coach-led endurance training sessions are held outside and athletes are well spaced out. If an athlete is uncomfortable attending these sessions, Coach Keith can provide guidance for individual workouts.
Strength and conditioning training sessions can either be done virtually via FaceTime or Zoom, and in-person training sessions can be conducted outside. Coach Keith has all the equipment needed for in-person sessions. All equipment is cleaned after each session. The one exceptionalities is that clients are requested to bring their own yoga mat, if needed.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE WORKOUTS?
We leverage TrainingPeaks and Zwift to integrate coaching plans with your training activity. Athletes with an individual, customized coaching plan will receive these plans every Monday. They will detail the week's training activity with detailed descriptions of each workout, including duration, distance, effort-zone. You can then link your training sessions by way of STRAVA, Garmin, Polar, or Apple Watch, allowing Coach Keith to see a detailed analysis of your training performance.
