A welcome message by Coach Kay
I’m Coach Kay, an ultramarathon coach and founder of KaysFIT Academy. If you’re a recreational runner looking to take your performance to the next level, you’ve come to the right place. I’m thrilled to announce that KaysFIT Academy now offers a high-quality long-distance running coach program at the Padukone-Dravid Center for Sports Excellence (CSE) in North Bangalore – one of the highest-quality private sports facilities in all of India.
With years of experience personally coaching individuals and corporate teams of varied skill levels – from beginners to competing athletes – I firmly believe that serious performance gains go hand-in-hand with access to modern facilities and a well-developed scientific coaching program.
When you join the Ultra Indians Running Club, you will have access to a team of experienced running and strength & conditioning coaches and also have the option to access the world-class fitness facility and sports physiotherapists. It’s an environment that is developed to breed performance growth scientifically. The evidence is that CSE, in the few short years of its existence, has already produced several world-class athletes and is creating the next generation of fitness proficiency in India.
My long-distance coaching programs are designed with you in mind, based on my experience as an ultrarunner, a certified science and evidence-based sports performance coach, and an ultramarathon race director. Whether you’re looking to improve your performance in a half marathon, a full marathon, or an ultramarathon – on a road, technical trail, extreme weather, or high altitude – I can help you achieve your goals.

I’m a friendly coach and mentor. I believe in the philosophy, “give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime”.
All my clients benefit from my passion and blended knowledge developed over the past 30 years from the corporate leadership roles that I played, knowledge as an ultrarunning athlete, and as a coach with a special interest in performance, human anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, functional training methods, sports-specific physical and mental conditioning, racing and fueling strategies and effective coaching methodologies.
I bring numerous years of ultrarunning experience and coaching many athletes into my Academy presented through the RCF framework I created in 2020 during the pandemic. RCF stands for Reconstruct the Foundation; RCF helps you fix your foundation; RCF focuses on developing knowledgeable athletes; RCF integrates your life goals; and many more.
Additionally, I integrate my knowledge from various disciplines into my coaching practice to help my clients achieve their success and beyond from my experience in managing large programs, working with people, planning and managing complex projects and sports events and developing process excellence.

KaysFIT Academy client Testimonials
“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 counselling and improvement tips helped me gain endurance and confidence in running. He also designed a race plan, including a pacing chart considering my goal, potential, course complexities, and weather. You won’t believe it; I was amazed to see my finish time…I finished the Ultra with a 10 minutes difference from the pacing plan.
