“Even though I had finished a few half and full marathons, I had a nagging feeling of not completing a marathon with total control. I was keen to participate in a 75 km Ultra and that’s when I met Coach Kay. Every week, his counseling and improvement tips helped me gain endurance and confidence in my running. He also designed a race plan including a pacing chart considering my goal, potential, the course complexities, and the weather. You won’t believe it; I was amazed to see my finish time…I finished the Ultra with a 10 minutes difference with the pacing plan. “
“My running journey started in 2016, where I met Coach Kay and began to train under his guidance. My primary objective was to get fitter and deal with my college-days-obesity. I had completed 5 half marathons during the first year and lost a whopping 26 kgs 106 to 80. I couldn’t be happier than this. Now I can’t let a day go past me without exercising. During the initial days, there were moments I became careless and complacent after achieving my weight target. Thank you, Coach Kay, for believing in me and coaching me whenever I needed your guidance.”
“…I could smile at the finish line, I’m not regretting or feeling the pain at the finish. That headache after the finish of any event is now missing, I can have a meal at the finish and immediately after my run, I can carry out my role as a mom. With all these, I noticed that my heart rate started to stabilize at 7:15 pace for a considerably longer time. In the past, It would have gone over the roof for this pace after an hour into the run.
When I started this journey with the Academy my aim was to reach a higher goal and then attain happiness. Now this journey itself looks super exciting and I’m happy to have taken up this journey. “
“It’s been one transformational experience for me. For someone who refuses to walk and needs company, even for an errand, running a marathon means something! I had my goals established and had the confidence to attempt, but the path (I was clueless) to this seemingly impossible task! Landing at KaysFIT Academy proved to be my watershed moment in many ways. My coach provided me with a holistic approach to fitness, diet, and disciplined training, my running has significantly improved over 9 months. The personalized training schedule, feedback sessions, running tips, and more importantly, Coach Kay’s attention during times of self-doubt ensured I completed my maiden marathon beating my goal time.”
“Before May last year, I was absolutely dormant, not because I was lazy but because I just couldn’t do any workouts or runs due to a shin injury. When I was cleared to exercise, Coach Kay advised me to invest in RCF. After completing my first Marathon and the Comrades under him, I have developed complete faith in his coaching skills. I took to the RCF program very seriously, and the results were phenomenal. From starting to walk in June, I did a 45 min 10K PB a few months later. The RCF techniques, rigor, and techniques built confidence in me. Regular reporting and review of the progress with my coach helped me to stay focused. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or an experienced runner; RCF is a must for everyone.”
“My first interaction with Coach Kay was at the OOTYULTRA 2018, and right from the pre-race briefing to the actual race, your organizing abilities were quite impressive. I found him to be very approachable and helpful.
Frankly, I didn’t have any training experience under a coach, and the experience with you as an Academy #fitsian has been a great learning. You have a straightforward technical approach to running, often explaining the muscle groups involved in each workout and the benefits of doing them. These discussions have helped me appreciate running better, and most avoid injuries, needless to say, to achieve my short distance races PBs & also to complete my first ever ultramarathon.”
“Very Friendly coach – cost-effective in terms of service provided along with Training peaks Integration – very knowledgeable – vast experience in the field of running – very open to listening to runner’s a choice/option/ideas – I being a recreational runner, training plan is always left open and adjusted based upon our sudden travel/sickness/or due to any unavoidable circumstances like corona or whenever is injured. I was out of training for two months, and Coach Kay extended my membership too extended for two months & I don’t think any other coach will do this.”
