Get in Touch with Christo
Before purchasing any coaching services with Christo, feel free to message him or book a free video chat consultation to ask any questions you have and make sure he’s the right coach for you.
No two athletes are the same so my desire is to help you reach whatever your goal may be, be it an Olympic Trials Qualifier, a Boston Qualifier, a new PR or finishing your first 5k. I’ll be there to explain each step in your training and for the post run breakdowns.
Big changes do not happen overnight, they happen because you decided you wanted this and were consistent with your approach and dedication. What step forward looks like is personal to each athlete therefore, I will craft a training regimen that fits into your life’s schedule.
Shoot me a message on where you are in your running journey and we’ll make plans on how to get you to where you want to be. We’ll celebrate together at the end when you’ve hit that destination you’ve been dreaming of.
