Looking for a gift idea for a running friend? We have gift certificates for a form analysis and all lengths of training programs. Email Joe for more information.
This includes two sessions. The first session is to video you running from multiple angles to get a complete picture of your form and gait. The second session is for discussion of the analysis and viewing the videos in slow-motion. You will be provided with a complete write-up of the analysis, which includes suggestions to correct any issues. The analysis focuses on the following 9 areas: posture, forward lean, head, shoulders, arms, hands, back/hips, legs and foot strike. Contact Joe if you would like to schedule a form analysis. Cost is $80
If you live in the Champaign County, Illinois area and you would like to have a personal coach to help you through your runs, this is for you. These plans include a face-to-face consultation and running questionnaire to determine your current fitness level, health/injury history, and running goals. This is ideal for anyone from the beginning runner that needs extra attention, through the more experienced runner looking for a more specific, personal experience. Whatever your ability level, this type of coaching will provide you with the opportunity to work with a coach and have your specific needs and goals addressed. Longer commitments receive discounted services.
Each of the following plans come with a small group workout. Coach Joe meets his clients around 6:00 a.m. or after 6:00 pm on Wednesdays in the summer and fall. In the winter, Coach Joe normally meets his clients at the University of Illinois Armory, typically, on Wednesday or Thursday evenings. It is unclear if this will be possible in the winter of 2020-21. Check back later in October.
Coaching by the hour:
If you desire to work one-on-one with Coach Joe during workout sessions (track work, tempo runs, hill sessions, long runs, etc.), this is an additional option to supplement your training plan.
Cost is $40 per hour.

If you and some friends live in the Champaign County, IL area (surrounding counties may be considered) and are looking for a running coach and have the same goal distance or race, I can set up a group training program. The type of program can be done in-person or online. Prices vary depending on the type of coaching needed and number of members in the group. There is a 2 person minimum and an 8 person maximum for all groups.
Training Plans only:
If you just want a training plan for a specific race distance, we can develop a training plan geared towards your specific goals and needs. The price for a training plan includes a phone or virtual/video consultation (approximately 30-60 minutes) and running questionnaire to determine your current fitness level, health/injury history, and running goals.
