An endurance sports coach for Peak Athletic Coaching is the primary point of contact for all athletes under their supervision. Our coaches are expected to be readily available and able to respond to all communications from their athletes within a reasonable amount of time.  Providing a custom coaching experience is of paramount importance.  This custom experience includes creating an individualized training plan in Training Peaks, as well as providing ample feedback, encouragement and advice to each client.

 

Coaching services are primarily executed remotely and from an online setting. Coaches for Peak Athletic Coaching are also expected to regularly engage with members of our ambassador program infrastructure -- establishing a personal connection with these athletes is essential to growing your coaching roster. Engagement within these groups may include, but is not limited to, giving advice, sharing workouts, organizing seminars, etc. Engagement primarily happens in our private team Facebook groups, on our ambassador program websites / mobile apps, and through bi-weekly newsletters. Coaching contracting positions traditionally begin as a part-time, but we are seeking individuals interested in growing into a full-time position.

Details:

We are looking to add highly motivated individuals to our coaching staff. Extensive training will be provided to qualified candidates, and they must demonstrate the capability to coach at the expected level prior to being contracted. Once contracted, new coaches typically ramp up with a smaller roster until the coach is comfortable and proficient with our tools and systems. 

  

Beyond job training, we will provide ongoing support to coaches by handling administrative tasks associated with coaching. This allows the coach to focus solely on developing their roster and tending to their athletes' needs.
