Coaching

Figuring out how to get the most out of your time available for training is a daunting task. What workouts are the best for a certain race? What is a workout? How much running is enough? How much running is too much? How can I get stronger and fitter but not get injured? If you've ever asked those questions, having a coach will help you put your mind at ease, help you accomplish your running goals, and reach your full potential.

Drawing on current research and the classic training philosophies of Tim Noakes, Jack Daniels and others, Alison combines her knowledge of anatomy and physiology with 12 years of competitive trail running and 8 years of coaching experience to train the whole athlete. She knows first-hand the importance of an effective, communicative coach in staying injury-free and achieving goals. Alison specializes in coaching runners new to trail/ultrarunning, post-partum moms, and those coming back from injury.

      What people say:

      After a series of injuries, Alison helped me refine my running technique. Since working with Alison, my running related injuries have been virtually non existent and have enabled me to continue running as a foundation of my training.

      I took an eight-week trail running class and it changed the way I run—for the better! Alison Naney gave us drills and pointers I found easy to practice on my other runs, and I now actually look forward to long, steep climbs! With her emphasis on the core and her easygoing attitude, Alison was exactly the running coach I needed to burst through my years-long running plateau.

      While we have all probably been running since we learned to walk, without proper running technique pain or injury is a common occurrence. With the help of a few cues, however, this fine sport can enrich your life for decades to come, while building strength and resilience.

      In addition to offering seasonal clinics and classes, I help clients find more ease in their running. Whether you're just starting to run, get recurring injuries, or want to increase your efficiency, refining your form can be hugely beneficial.  The combination of massage and technique work can transform movement patterns, and as such, improve body awareness and increase longevity and enjoyment of the sport.

      Pricing:

      Private session: $60*

      Semi-private (two people): $40 each

      Group (3-4 people): $30 each

      *coaching clients get a discounted rate of $50/session

      I wanted to get back into running after a few years of not running at all, and I eventually found Alison. I am so glad I did. Not only did I learn about running at 180 BPS, and base training, and Fartleks, and hill sprints, and weight training, I learned that I could actually run and run and run and have fun and get better each week which were my primary goals. Alison was wonderful at setting me up with workouts every week, checking in, pushing me, giving me new exercises when other ones bored me and just generally being a great, encouraging, and fun to be with coach. I even ran a few races—firsts for me.

      In January 2013, I hired Alison as a personal running coach to help me get back into running shape after a year-long illness. I was a little apprehensive about hiring such an elite athlete since I’m more of a run-for-fun middle-aged woman … but I’d been a runner for over 25 years and was anxious to get back at it. My goal was to run a half marathon in April, and I was basically starting from scratch. Alison really took the time to find out what I wanted and needed, what worked as far as schedule, exercises, and time, and developed a 4 month training program that was perfect for me. She really listened to what I had to say and designed the program accordingly. Alison ran with me each month, checked in with me each week, and was so inspirational and supportive. In April 2013, my daughter and I each ran half of the Sunflower Relay Marathon in Winthrop. Goal met! I also ran the Winthrop Half Marathon in June 2013, and am training for another two half-marathons in 2014. Thanks, Alison!

      Alison’s training plans ,workouts and classes have been very helpful. But what has impressed me the most is her individual attention. I am, at best, a mid pack finisher (really in the back half) but I have felt she always takes my personal goals seriously. She listens to my struggles and adjusts the workouts but keeps pushing.
