Running Coaching

Overview

Our running coaching programs unleash your potential to have your best race yet and set your new PR!  Our coaching approach helps runners overcome the common challenges of injury, burn-out, fading during races, finding the right nutrition and hydration, and the little voice in the back of our heads that says “I can’t” or to “Stop” (you know which one we mean).

We use a unique blend of *professional coaching and personal training, rooted in evidence based behavioral and physical science techniques and practices, to create sustainable growth that will make you faster and stronger physically and mentally!  Each program is individually crafted for you to meet your specific needs and fit into your life.  We don’t believe in stock programs or a one size fits all approach.  We believe in embracing what makes you unique and crafting a plan that is truly right for you so you can succeed and meet your goals.

Each of our running programs is created by our CEO & founder, Steven Nathenson, who is an accomplished runner, competes in triathlon at the national level, and has more fitness certifications than he knows what to do with.

Let us help you have your best race yet!!!  We love running, but we love helping runners break through barriers and achieve what they thought was out of reach even more!

*Professional coaching, as defined by the International Coaching Federation, is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.  Professional coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe that every client is inherently strong, capable, and wise.  In addition, professional coaching creates a warm, safe, and non-judgmental environment which fosters growth and connection amongst individuals.  A professional coach provides coaching to their clients; however, it is ultimately up to the client to do the work necessary to reach their goals and desired development.

Finding the Right Program for You

At Strive For More, we recognize and celebrate the uniqueness of every individual.  We love to talk about running and welcome inquiries via phone or email.  We start each of our prospective clients off with a free consultation which typically lasts between 20 and 45 minutes.  This consultation allows us to learn about what you are looking for and your specific needs when it comes to having your best race, running your first race, or simply starting to run.  Afterwards, we tailor the content of your chosen program to meet your needs.
