To inquire about Coaching, send a message to Coach Roth. Individualized plans, which can include strength training components, are available for everyone and are priced reasonably to meet your budget.
Coaching plans begin at 3 months in length, as that is what is required for your body to adapt properly to even begin to see gains in fitness. Longer commitments are recommended, especially if you are properly training for races well in advance of the competition date. Races of 10km through 20km / half marathon should anticipate a 6-9 month commitment and if your goal is longer than that, 9-12 months will be necessary to get you to the finish with minimal risk & maximum rewards.
