Having a coach keeps you accountable

Being accountable to another person is sometimes easier than being accountable to ourselves. If you have to meet a group of people for a run at 9am chances are you will be there at 8:55am. If you plan to run by yourself at 9am chances are you will leave at 9:15am. Our athletes tell us that having a coach creates a level of accountability beyond themselves, which is very motivating.
