What style of fitness/sport do you coach?

Trail & Ultra Running - I'm an online coach in a strength coaching capacity for runners.

How do you deliver your programming?

I offer 100% remote training. 

What program types do you use to deliver your training?

I use Custom and Fixed Length programming.  As all of my coaching is bespoke - the custom programming option offers all the tools you could ever need to catering for various athletes types and levels. I use fixed length to offer sample programmes ranging from 1-4 weeks - fantastic for giving potential clients the coaching experience if they're not 100% sure!

Which features are helping you the most and why?

The video attachment tool has been well received by clients in testing and adds that personal touch to session briefs, etc. A close second is the benchmarking tool - recently found out how to adjust the % of lifts!

Are you using Benchmarks in your training?

Yes! The larger range compound lifts and distances for runners are an obvious go-to.

Since using FITR how has it changed your coaching business?

It saves me a HEAP of time - I've worked on pulling together some base templates, etc. It's made programming so easy! My clients also love the app. The coach support via chat has been a real winner.

It's great. The only thing I feel that's missing is being able to integrate other apps - Strava, Polar, Garmin, etc.

FITR saves us time creating programming, automating payments, it’s cost effective, and our clients like the functionality and front-end look.
