I don’t know if I should post this under Training or Feature Request because it is a bit of both.
If I remember correctly, somebody from the SUF Team hinted at some possible changes to the coaching offerings in the future — or maybe this was just all in my head. Here is my question anyway:
Are there any plan for some extended coaching options in the future? If yes, would it be possible to already give us some hints?
Right now we can get customized training plans, which will give us access to a consultation before and mid plan. As I understand, it’s all still rather focused on the actual training plan itself.
Here’s the thing. At least for now, I am happy with my general training plans out of the plan builder (This will probably change next year…).
What I would like to have is a coach that will:
- check in on my progress a bit more frequently,
- evaluate where I am,
- possibly check on some specific trainings and
- is available for some general talks about nutrition, rest, gear and, of course, the training itself.
Sometimes I would just need somebody to “keep me honest” during my eating habits and execution of the training plans. Somebody to share “war stories” with.
Ha, does that make me sound lonely?
I would absolutely be ready to pay for this kind of service. I do understand that the time commitment for each athlete would be higher and it could be tricky with a limited staff.
Of course an on site trainer would be favorable. But we live in a modern world where video calls and technology empowered us all to get a bit closer. And I trust in the SUF Team — without knowing you personally, yet.
I’m not quite sure myself about the specifics this kind of service could include, but it would be nice to know if there is even any point in thinking about it.
I love the forum and that all you coaches are already helping as best as you can, that’s some A+ service for free already. I just would like the experience to be a bit more tailored to me — for a price.
On the Website there is a FAQ which already states:
Q: I REALLY CAN'T PLAN MORE THAN A FEW WEEKS OUT -- IS THIS GOING TO WORK FOR ME? A: [...], then you'd be better off with our personal coaching service, launching later this year (see the last question in this FAQ list for more information on that).
BUT: I can’t find any more information. Where is “the last question?”.
What does the community here think? Is this something anybody else would be interested in?
What does the team think?
