The closure of schools and educational institutions sometimes make it difficult to organize physical education at a distance. The running.COACH team would like to make its contribution to bring movement into the corona time despite the absence of lessons. The app offers pupils and students the possibility to create an individually adapted training program and lets teachers view the completed activities afterwards.
How does running.COACH work?
running.COACH is first and foremost a running app, which can be used to create an individual and tailor-made training program. When creating the program, current ability of the user is taken as a basis. The number of training sessions can be selected by the user and for each training session created, a reference to alternative sports is also created. The program is supplemented by training videos, where warm-up, stretching and strengthening exercises are illustrated.
The completed sports activities can be tracked with the running.COACH app and are then synchronized directly with the platform. The training sessions can also be automatically uploaded from various sports platforms (Garmin, Suunto, Strava, Polar, …) or manually noted as completed.
Coaching function for sports teachers
A teacher can be given insight into the activities of their students. In addition to the easy viewing and adjustment of individual training, comments can also be written in the training. These comments can then be seen by the student for the respective training. We are convinced that the running.COACH app can make a good contribution to sports education at a distance.
What are the requirements to use the running.COACH App?
The running.COACH is suitable for everyone from beginners to advanced athletes. However, since the plans created were not developed for children, we would like to address our offer primarily to high schools and (technical) colleges.
