It is the mission of Endurance for Everyone, LLC to provide coaching to everyone who wishes to have it at a reasonable and affordable rate.
Our coaching philosophy is the same as the mantra on the back of our shirts; Swim Calm, Bike Strong, and Run Steady.
The importance is placed on the mental aspect of the swim and developing form. Speed comes as the athlete becomes more comfortable with form and being in the water. Time in the pool builds confidence and racing builds confidence.
If you are in the Tampa Bay area and would like to join a Masters Swim Team, teamE4E swim with the Tampa Bay Aquatic Masters. If you have questions about this club, fees, etc. contact us and we can help you get started.
Longer rides will be on the weekend based on saddle time over speed, i.e. getting the body prepared for being in the saddle 4-7 hours depending on the event or race you are training for. Weekday training based on intense intervals over long rides unless your time permits otherwise.
We also do occasional “Zwift Rides”. Search for teamE4E on Zwift and follow me (John Harris TeamE4E). When we set up a MeetUp we can include you on the invite.
As heavy athletes, the run can be a painful experience so again we train for form over speed, using run/walk intervals that are geared toward both your ability and your personal target. We also encourage Zone 2 training on longer runs. Our coaches believe in the paradigm of not running over 70% of race distance. This is for injury prevention and speed of recovery.
For further background on our training styles and methods, please refer to the Galloway Method and Hanson Marathon Training. You can also Google “Polarized Training” for a background as well.
I personally do not believe in the high carb needs that are normally adhered to by endurance athletes. While I personally do not condone high-carb I understand that some have deep-seated beliefs in that method so nutrition is usually left up to the athlete themselves unless they wish my input. I believe we can train our bodies to be fat burners even during a race.
teamE4E knows of a few local athletes who are certified in nutrition, so if you’d like for one on one help in this area contact us and we can connect you.
Functional training attempts to adapt or develop exercises which allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and without injuries. In the context of bodybuilding, functional training involves mainly weight bearing activities targeted at core muscles of the abdomen and lower back.
Functional fitness is headed by Coach Jennifer Diaz. For information on her background and pricing contact us and we can get you in touch with her.
Below are the levels of coaching offered and the level of coaching to expect
teamE4E Race Planning: $100: One-time plan (for a single Race event). One time follow-up at halfway point. TrainingPeaks not required for this level.
teamE4E Endurance Coaching: $200/month: Weekly Personalized Training Plans uploaded each Monday. Results reviewed by the assigned coach. Follow-up via email/text. Access to coaching via text 24/7.
Payment is expected on the first of each month through SQUARE invoices. Invoices will be sent a week prior to the email of record, with a reminder on the first of the month if payment has not been received. Non-Payment by the 5th of the month will result in cancellation of coaching services, with a $25 fee for reinstatement unless you contact your coach and make arrangments ahead of time.
If you choose to pay one year in advance you will receive two months for FREE. For example, the cost for one year paying month to month is $2400. If you pay one year up front your total charge will be $2000.
If you have a partner that will be sharing the same plan the charge will be 1.5 times the rate. For example, two people sharing the same plan will be charged $300 per month (or $3000 per year vs. $3600) as long as they stay on the same TrainingPeaks calendar.
Clients in the Endurance Section are expected to have their own TrainingPeaks account. This can be at the base (free) level or the advanced level ($10) but metrics are not available at the base level and cannot be expected.
Coaches reserve the right to terminate clients at any time.
