Think of this service as coaching light, or an affordable alternative to full one-on-one coaching. Here’s how it works: First, contact us to express your interest in a custom training plan. When you do, please be sure to specify whether you’re a runner or a triathlete. We’ll then send you a questionnaire to fill out and return. On the basis of the information you supply, we will create a fully customized training plan that fits your personal goals, preferences, needs, and constraints. The entire plan will be delivered at one time on the TrainingPeaks platform for you to follow on your own. The cost of this service is $15 per customized week for runners and cyclists, and $20 per customized week for triathletes. Full payment is require up front regardless of the length of the plan. There is no long-term commitment.


Matt and David are not accepting new one-on-one clients at this time. This site will be updated as our status changes. If you wish to hire Matt or David as your personal running or triathlon coach, contact us. We’ll first get to know you through a written questionnaire and an initial Skype/FaceTime or phone consultation. We will then deliver workouts to you in one- to two-week blocks through the TrainingPeaks platform. We’ll monitor your training on a daily basis and check in with you once a week via email, Skype, FaceTime, or phone to hear how you’re doing and gather any additional information we need in order to prescribe your next block of training. You may email us with questions as often as you like. The cost of this service is $400 per month for runners and cyclists, and $500 per month for triathletes. Billing occurs monthly. There is no long-term commitment.
