Launching Mentor Coaching by Arduua!

This service is designed for experienced trail runners who enjoy running free yet prefer to plan and execute their training independently while seeking strategic guidance from a professional coach.

Ideal candidates are those who have completed at least one season of the Arduua Coaching program.

Mentor Coaching

€50 / month

Service Overview:
In the Mentor Coaching service, you will receive personalized strategic guidance from an Arduua professional coach who will support you throughout your training journey. Unlike the other personal coaching plans, this service allows you to manage all the details of your training yourself, planning your own training in TrainingPeaks based on the overall guidelines provided by your coach.

The focus of this service is to empower you to manage and plan your own training in a longer perspective with strategic input from a professional coach, by building a long-lasting relationship with your coach and maximizing the value of video meetings. During these meetings, you will review your previous training phase and go through the upcoming phase, discussing what to train, why, and how much. Key elements such as running video analysis and race reviews will also be covered in these meetings.

Goals of the Service:
1.) To empower you to manage and plan your own training with strategic input from a professional coach.

2.) Reach peak form on race day by implementing periodization and different phases of training in your training plan, while minimizing interference with your personal lifestyle.

3.) Ensure a long-lasting trail running career and continuous improvement in your trail running by fostering a strong, long-term relationship with your coach.
