How it works:
You talk to SPT's Remote Coaching Advisor who will guide you on the most effective program.
Then, you meet your coach in a Coaching Consultation. At this point, your coach begins the process of understanding who you are, your current physical build, your training history is, and what has/has not worked for you in the past. With this background information, your coach will build you a specific program.
Your coach sets you up on the online training platform - this platform will become your go to for receiving your program, uploading videos, commenting on your workouts and receiving feedback from your coach on your program results.
Once setup on the platform, you do your first workout: a physical test. Your coach puts you through an assessment so that they can get data on your current physical condition.
With the Fitness Test results, your coach designs your "split". A split is the style of training that you will do for months. It doesn't have exercise in it. It contains HOW you will train so that your coach can recognize larger changes and not get caught up in the day to day like most other coaches.
Your coach designs your specific program and posts it to the online platform weekly. This will allow your program to populate within the platform for you to see it when you need it.
From here, you do a monthly coaching consultation with your coach. You have full access to your coach through the online platform as well as email, but it is a great addition to be able to sit face to face with your coach each month. We want to talk to you!
Throughout your experience, your coach not only assess and designs your program, but also helps design your nutrition protocols, your competition schedule, your lifestyle practices (sleep, hydration, stress reduction, etc...) and many other important factors to increase your performance.
The Remote Coaching Program is a brilliant way to take your sailing to the next level without having to uproot your life in order to receive world class coaching.
