Wow... Just wow. At 1st I was hesitant as because of the price. That changed fast. After the 1st lesson I realized that if I were some how able to monetize the benefits of Timur coaching it would be astronomically greater than the price. How can you put a price on the joy I experience as my whole body flows over rolling hills light a kite on a breeze, a leaf down a stream, a facial system calling upon ever fiber and sinew. Running use to be exercise, now it is an exploitative prayer the power of my body. Also... I am way F@#$ing faster.Aug 5, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For running coaching, I offer a complementary running date followed by a 13 session commitment for $1365. For life coaching, I offer an introductory life coaching session for $50, followed by a 13 session commitment for $1820. For both types of coaching, sessions can be paid in installments if clients are financially unable to pay in full at the start.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I typically meet for an initial session to get to know one another. For running coaching, this takes the form of a complementary running date. We go for a short run together and discuss how we'd like to work together. For life coaching, the introductory session is $50 for a similar opportunity to determine if we'd like to work together and what we would focus on. Both types of sessions for one hour. If we do want to work together, I require a commitment of 13 sessions in order to guide runners or life coaching clients through the process of making significant changes, integrating them, and ultimately stabilizing them.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?As a running coach, I am an experienced competitive runner (high school, college, and as a sponsored marathoner) and a USATF Certified Coach. I also bring in advanced body alignment, muscle integration, and breathing techniques drawn from my training and certification as a tai chi and chi gong teacher. For life coaching and running coaching, I bring in my Masters in Counseling Psychology. I also have several years experience as a therapist in addition to several years as a life coach and running coach.
