Jan-Peter Grünewälder

The change of coach had been due: instead of being my own coach and getting lost in training guides and online platforms I now profit from the competent support of Ingalena and the training concept designed specifically for my individual needs. It feels great and it has had noticeable effects so far. And how!

Josua Müller - running.COACH

I’d had a dream: Running a marathon once in my life. The fact that I managed to complete the Jungfrau marathon of all marathons is something I have to thank the boys of running.COACH for. Without their support and their personal coaching I wouldn’t have been able to master this challenge.
