DEEPEND MY KNOWLEDGE
I really enjoyed this course and the way that the material was presented. Having done a coaching course before, I believe the 80/20 Course was able to fill in a lot of gaps about endurance coaching and now I'm better equipped to provide a great service and experience to my athletes!
I might be different from the crowd, because I took this course to learn how to coach myself and design my own training plans to reach my goals as an athlete. I’ve enjoyed the various books from Matt Fitzgerald on 80/20 running and had previously used their pre-built training plans to great success. 🥇 I took this course to understand more about the core principles of coaching and potentially unearth new ways to achieve mastery as a marathon runner. The 80/20 Endurance Team exceeded all my expectations with this course. As an athlete, I now have a much deeper understanding behind the “why” of each workout on my calendar. I also find it invaluable to have access to the 80/20 Coaching Community to ask my coaching peers questions on topics I’m unfamiliar with as an athlete. This has already been of great value as I’ve been curious to learn more about running with power as an intensity metric instead of using pace or heart rate. While I don’t know if my career will ever involve coaching others, I can say with confidence that any athlete can trust working with an 80/20 Certified Coach. These folks know their stuff! Kudos to Matt, David, Leyla, and the entire 80/20 Team for producing a great product. 👍
I have been coaching for a few years. This is the best investment I’ve made yet to enhance my knowledge. This was a great course, so much information and how to apply it. Having on demand access is a huge bonus.
Powerfull & doable
With already some expercience in online certification courses, I easily rank the 8020 coaching certification as the best. The online info, community and offline materials all came together. The short tests in the end of each part worked well to see if one could get on. The community was vibrant and very interesting (and practically helpful).
The principles of 80/20 have always resonated with me, which is also backed with scientific evidence. This course combined the 80/20 approach to training with coaching philosophy in perfect measures. The content was interesting, logically set out and concisely conveyed. The breakout tasks added further interest. Feedback on the assignment was thorough and have given me alot to think about as I continue my coaching journey. I do hope for more training by 80/20 in the future.
I have loved this style of training since it was the Maffetone Method. I already coach my athletes using the 80/20 method and have read all of Matt Fitzgeralds books. They are excellent! I had not pursued a coaching certification because I strongly believe in 80/20 and was so excited when I saw there was a coaching program for 80/20! Thank you for offering this. I learned a lot and really enjoyed the way the course was presented. I feel like I have so much more to offer now as an endurance coach.
A fantastic certification course
I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I have trained using 80/20 principles for over four years, so I am no stranger to the methodology, but I wanted to learn how to effectively coach others using it. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to start or advance their careers as a coach using a proven framework.
Really enjoyed it. Learned a lot
