Don’t just take our word for it.
I came on board with Hanson’s Coaching Services over two years ago. A friend of mine forwarded me an article on the Hanson’s marathon method and immediately started looking into it. Corey continues to take my running ability to the next level with PRs at several distances time and time again. Besides getting stronger and faster, Corey has accomplished this all while keeping me injury free. Over two years in the works and no injuries, that says a lot about Hanson’s Coaching Services.
After having a baby in October, I knew I needed some outside help to get back into racing shape. With high hopes for a sub three hour marathon, I decided to try out the Hanson’s Coaching Service. Working with my coach, Melissa, has helped me train smarter and run harder. After only four weeks of following a training plan that is tailored specifically to my needs, I set my 5k PR! With Melissa’s guidance and the individualized plan she has created for me, I expect to set another PR at the Run for the Red Marathon on May 18.
I am a 53-year-old life-long average marathoner, Coach Melissa on the Hansons squad has been tremendous to work with and she has helped me to step up my running. Because of Melissa’s training and positive encouragement I’ve set recent PR’s in the marathon and won age divisions in the 5k. Anyone interested in turning up their training in a positive environment should take a look at the Hansons team,
There are countless books, webpages, and blogs that have plans that claim to get you ready for a marathon, and claim to get you faster, I never found these to be adequate for me. With HCS not, only was I able to get a plan that met my needs and budget, but I had access to my coach for modifications, suggestions and encouragement.vI wanted to get to the next level. Little did I know that the HCS would get me beyond the next level; every race this season I have had a PR and I am now placing in my age group; something that I never dreamed of.
My experience over the last 10 months working with Corey has been fantastic! The original goal was to get me back on track in regards to marathon performance after having some great performances, but then suffering with two DNFs in a row. After the 2nd DNF, I reached out to Hansons coaching and signed up for the customized plan. By working with Corey, I was able to achieve this goal within a few short months and hit very close to my original PR. What is great is that I can now focus on working down my times through shorter races as well. The flexibility of Hanson’s Coaching to provide advice outside of just a marathon has been a nice surprise. I am a rather high maintenance runner when it comes to communication and Corey is always extremely responsive to any questions that come up. He is able to help beyond just a training plan and provides thorough feedback on my racing schedule and even racing tactics and goals. My workout feedback is reviewed several times a week and I enjoy getting the candid commentary that helps to pump me up with encouragement when I need it, but also to reel me in when I need a firm voice of reason as well. I’m excited to continue my work with Corey in order to get the most out of myself that I can! I highly recommend the Customized plan for anyone that wants a high level of communication and prefers a plan to be built week by week based on your personal goals and how you are progressing over time
