Whisper Running offers both group training and one-on-one training options. Group training days are set for the winter months and can be found by clicking on the calendar at the top of the Whisper Running website. For more information about the six- and nine-week preseason conditioning sessions for the 2019 Track season, check out the Winter Training 2019 page. Continue reading for more information around group and 1-on-1 training.
Winter Training Options: High school runners begin their track season on February 25, while middle school runners begin their season March 18, hence the 6- and 9-week training packages. If you child can attend most Winter Training scheduled days found on the calendar, then registration via those packages makes the most economical sense. If your child can only attend on a consistent day of the week (example: he/she can attend on Monday’s, but is busy with other activities on Thursday’s and Saturday’s), then the use of the Winter Training Runcard is likely most economical. A couple of considerations when pondering whether or not to purchase a Runcard or Winter Training package:
If you purchase a 6- or 9-week session (Summer or Winter Training), then your active Runcard is then put on a temporary hold until the conclusion of the 6- or 9-week session. Once the session concludes, then your original Runcard resumes.
If you plan to use a current (green) Runcard (initially purchased at $125) during Winter Training, then attendance during Winter Training will count as 1.5 sessions per one (1) training session on that Runcard. I hope this makes sense.
Group Training: The group training option is for those who are versed in the sport of running by means of understanding the basics of running, have a decent base/fitness level, and have a general sense of what a running practice may entail. Whisper group practices include a group warm-up, drills/dynamics, a speed-endurance workout, cool-down, and stretching. If you are familiar with drills (various skips and dynamics), as well as interval training, then group training might be for you. If you are unsure, then registering for a few one-on-one sessions might be a good fit.
One-on-One Training: Private training is for runners who may need a few sessions to create a training base and/or familiarity within Whisper training. To help you get started, a minimum of four training sessions is encouraged, but you may choose more or less. Sessions typically last 60-75 minutes. Pending a number of factors, runners will typically advance to the group training option.
