Face-to-face sessions include Gait Analysis, Form Analysis, Pacing, and Breathing Analysis, and personalized workouts. For both face-to-face and virtual monthly coaching my athletes can expect a coach who builds positive coaching relationships through motivation, provides prompt feedback, and adjusts the training schedule based on evolving fitness levels and scheduling conflicts due to work/school, etc... Open communication will allow me to make appropriate changes in the online schedule or in-person workouts to keep you "UP" and running. You have access to unlimited texting, emailing, and scheduled calls.

Client Reviews

We booked an in-person session with coach Marty for my 14 year old granddaughter. She ran and trained but just could not improve her time. After our first session with coach Marty we knew we had made the right decision. He was helpful and flexible to help make our session possible. You can tell by talking with him that he is very knowledgeable and passionate about running and coaching. He took his time to learn what Gracie's goals were before developing a easy to follow weekly training plan. She loves her weekly plans and says they are never dull. I would highly recommend coach Marty. He is a fantastic coach and an amazing encourager.

Amazing coach, really gets to know the athlete. In the short time he’s motivated my son. Marty is such a positive impact!

It has not been quite a month that Coach Marty has been working with Landon. We’ve already seen actual improvement in both his time, speed and endurance. I think the best part of this has been an attitude change in Landon . Not that he had a bad attitude .He has a much more confident and relaxed atmosphere , about being able to accomplish his goals . I would recommend coach Marty to anyone , to help improve their performance in their favorite sport, running and endurance being a big part of most sports.

Great coach. He is thorough with what he does and is ready to train and explain all of the training process. Will definitely follow up training in the near future.

Chance came to us wanting to up his running game. As non-runners, we weren’t sure how to support Chance in this. I searched the internet and found Marty. Marty has had a positive influence on Chance’s running! Want to up your game? Reach out to Marty Baker!
Many of you may know lots about training and many of you may not. Regardless, most of the time you need guidance and accountability to move “up” to the next level. Please join us in group runs for safety and accountability but also consider a coach like Marty Baker! Marty was one of my teammates when we ran for ECU. I know firsthand that he has an incredible work ethic and is passionate about people and is loyal to his friends and causes.
Marty is a great coach. He is very motivating, encouraging, and closely monitors his athletes' performance and will adjust the training schedule due to work, family obligations, illness/injury and other obstacles in life. Within a 6-month period, I went from running a 4:25 Marathon to a 3:58 Marathon. His training plans are easy to follow and are made just for me. He showed me how to adjust my GPS watch to capture interval target splits during speed workouts which he analyzed closely.
