Teachers in Northern California
Oakland, CA and surrounding areas
Coach Timur Crone is a whole person running coach who draws upon his USATF Coaching training, Masters in Counseling Psychology, and Chi Arts Association certification in Taoist Mind-Body Arts. Clients can expect in depth work designed to transform their running into a relaxed, pleasurable experience which far less injuries.
Coach Timur's unique running approach draws from the new approach to biomechanics and gait analysis, which draws from the same advanced physics and anatomical perspective that creates high level martial arts. This perspective allows for a paradigm shifting upgrade to any distance runner's technique and capability. On the psychological side, peak performance and biofeedback techniques drawn from psychology and advanced tai chi and chi kung (qigong) principles improve ease and speed of running as well.
Coach Timur is based in Oakland, California with services to surrounding cities. He can be contacted at (510) 328-3702 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Clients always start with a complementary running date, which is an opportunity to learn a valuable skill while discussing goals and the possibility of working together. At that point, clients may sign up for one season (or 13 one hour sessions). One season of work together allows Coach Timur to see clients through the ups and downs of training while guiding them to a substantially new place as a runner and human.
