Since Hanson’s Coaching Services was forged in the spring of 2006, we realized that the hardest part of online coaching was delivering training plans to our athletes. That’s a pretty tough problem, when you are an online company!
These were great for athletes, but not very easy for the coach to write and deliver training plans.
Like many coaches we used Excel and Google spreadsheets, and experimented with training diaries. These were great for athletes, but not very easy for the coach to write and deliver training plans. There is a well-known site that is great, but it puts the costs on the athletes. It felt like we had to charge more for coaching just so our athletes could access their training logs and look at their information. Well, I am here today to announce that all of those problems are history! Thanks to our new partner, Final Surge, we have the platform to deliver all training to our athletes.
There are a ton of advantages to using Final Surge, but our athletes will be the biggest benefactors. One of the biggest problems as a coach is getting an athlete to fill out their log for you to see. A lot of this is because athletes have their own training logs on another site. With Final Surge, they have the capability with syncing with Garmin Connect, so you automatically update your Final Surge log at the same time! The folks at Final Surge have just been getting started- so look for more great features to be released as the year continues.
Lastly, we are very proud to partner with Final Surge by using their ability to deliver our 40+ training plans for everything from beginner 5k’s to elite marathon runners. You can still purchase the files from us, but if you want the files AND a dynamic training plan, then please visit their Training Plans page today!
