Cape Town Marathon Training Expert

Cape Town Marathon Training Expert

Ever since I could remember my brother and I were always on the move trying to get rid of some of the endless energy load we were blessed with. No matter how long or hard the day was, there always had to be “just one more time”!

After a few decades of running, this feeling has not disappeared and running is still a very important part of my day.

My intention to share some of my training and exercise secrets with you is two-fold:

  • To help you experience the absolute ambience of running enjoyment again.
  • To assist you in achieving your unique walking, running, cycling or triathlon goals – remember there is no goal too small to aim for. 

For a specialised program specific to you go to www.soulrunning.co.za

My style of coaching might differ from the ordinary and it follows a more specific intensity approach rather than a high volume/high mileage traditional way of getting fitter, but also more prone to injury and overtraining. I choose to meet you at your current fitness level, rather than where you were previously in your life.

I think that mentioning a coach to a beginner walker/runner might sounds intimidating, but please don’t let that be your experience. The pleasure to see someone gain small strides and growing towards their goals is just as special as the more experience person achieving theirs.

I offer the following programs:

  • walking (recreational), walk to run, running, trail running, triathlon & mountain biking – MTB

All programs are designed around your available time allocated to exercise. I encourage communication via email as this will be your medium to receive all programs.

I am looking forward to being part of this exciting journey to becoming a healthier person with you.
Run well, Mo
