Run Coaching by Energy Fitness Running

Online Run Coaching

Looking to improve your performance or have an upcoming event? Our Online Coaching will tailor a program to your specific needs, not provide you with a generic program off the internet.

Why do Online Coaching with us?

Your coach Simone is an experienced ultramarathon runner in road, track and trail. She is Level 3 Performance and Development trail and Ultra Coach (Athletics Australia) and knows how to get results and will help you get yours too.

  • We know your goals, and we take the time to get to know our athletes.
  • We know your injury history, so we know where you’re vulnerable.
  • We take your health and well being into account, not just your running. Running is a stress on your body just like work and family are a stress, so we try to give you a healthy balance as a healthy happy runner is better than a run down stressed out runner.
  • We know your schedule, and we know life is complicated at times. You tell us how long you can train for each day and we’ll make it happen. Sudden change? No problems. We can rework your program on the fly. Shift worker? Yep, we can even work with constantly changing rosters.

Energy Fitness Online Coaching works with you on a personal level to achieve your goals. We offer WEEKLY tailored programming will ensure that you are ready to stand on the start line for your next event.

As well as our Online Coaching, if you live the Sutherland Shire we also offer weekly run sessions for all abilities. From beginner runners to elite level, road or trail, we offer it all.

Training Peaks is a running training app. View user guide here.

“I started the year not being able to run more than 15min because of a long-lasting knee injury.

9 months later I’ve run my first ever Marathon (Sydney) and a multi day trail race (Run Larapinta, NT) with results way beyond my hopes.

With Pete as my physio and Simone as my running coach, I felt I was being supported just like a professional runner!

Pete has an incredible energy, passion and professionalism along with amazing running track records.

Simone has an incredible energy, passion and professionalism along with amazing running track records.

I’m not repeating myself, those guys are just the dream team!

I’d recommend Pete and Simone to all runners, on or off-road, with any running background and ambition.”
