What do we offer our athletes?

With the focus on the individual and human aspect of sports and training, all our training programs are tailor-made and are based on you and your goals. No pre-configured schedules or computer-generated plans, but training programs build from scratch, relying on our 25+ years of coaching experience. With athletes from Belgium, Brazil, Germany, Singapore, Sri Lanka and the United States signed up for our programs we are building communities all over the world.

PERSONALISED SCHEDULES

No two athletes are the same, each has their own potential and capabilities, but are nonetheless champions in their own world. We treat everyone as a champion and with our tailor-made programs based on you and your goals, we try to make you the best version as possible of yourself.

YOU AND US

Our most important feature is our human interaction. Our experience in analysing data and taking the human aspect into account helps our athletes tremendously. There are no algorithms that can replace the human emotions and feelings. Everything we do is done by real people to give you a program that adapts to your progress and setbacks.

DATA ANALYSIS

With sports where time, distance and pace play an important role, numbers and data take the forefront in our approach. We conduct regular tests and use the data from each activity to adjust the training schedules and workouts accordingly. We do all the calculations so you can focus on your training

SETTING GOALS

Being an athlete is all about improving ourselves and being able to go longer and faster. We pay a lot of attention in setting the correct and attainable (long term) goals. We don’t endorse racing and going full out to break your Personal Best week after week. Instead, we use these races as tests and target a few events per year where you really will shine..

1-ON-1 COACH-ATHLETE COMMUNICATION

We value the 1-on-1 interaction with our athletes. This happens through e-mail, WhatsApp, video and voice calls.. The interaction ensures that the schedules and plans are living and updated to your current situation.

TRANSPARENCY AND HONESTY

We do not make any false promises or set any unattainable goals that would leave you disappointed. With our experience, we can make a pretty accurate prediction of your capabilities and help you set your short and long term targets with ease.

THE QUADRACOACH PHILOSOPHY

Quadracoach is all about creating a healthy training environment to ensure a long-lasting sportive life. We do this by looking at each athlete individually and coming up with a very detailed personalised plan that focusses on the needs and wants of the athlete and setting up short and long term goals.
As for the different sports itself, our mantra is “slower will make you faster”. Over the years, we have seen many athletes wasting their energy going too fast during long and recovery sessions, wasting all the energy they might need for their speed sessions and races, without giving their body a chance to rest. We aim to instill the best practices used by world-class athletes and translate that into training schedules for the average atlete.

OUR HISTORY

After starting a local running club in Colombo, Sri Lanka with the focus on improving the athletes rather that just running together, some of the runners started asking if there was a possibility to help, guide and train their friends and family abroad. Hence the idea of doing online coaching came to be and by the beginning of 2019 our first steps were set with the first runners outside of Sri Lanka joining. This evolved further with triathletes who had success with our running schedules asking for guidance with cycling and swimming. Hence the idea to offer training for different sports each headed by highly trained and experienced coaches.

THE FUTURE

Our first step is two-fold. One part will be dedicated to offer more services to local market. This include specialized training for kids, group training (although still with individual programs) for corporations and further assisting the Independence Pacers. The other part will be recruting more experienced coaches and offer more possibilities for athletes world wide
Our second step is to creating training groups or communities all over the world, who train together using our training programs. This also would include helping a few athletes to grow into assistant coaches that can help out the local groups and be the eyes and ears on the ground.
Both steps will ensure ever-improving conditions for the athletes, which in turn will lead to better performances both in practice and during races.

THE FOUNDER

Our founder and head coach, Gert, started running back in 1980 at the age of 8. Quickly establishing himself as a talented young middle-distance runner, he regularly set year bests in different youth categories in Belgium and gathered some medals at international youth competitions and set personal bests of 49″04 over the 400m and 1’49″89 over the 800m. After major setbacks because of injuries, he started focussing at the coaching and training aspect as an 18-year old. He soon became certified and has been honing his coaching and motivational skills ever since. He kept on running recreationally and moving more to longer distances, going 16’40” on the 5k and 2h45’58” on the marathon.
His analytical mind and love for data also led him to other sports, such as basketball, baseball and handball. In the meantime he kept on helping beginning runners to establish healthy running habits and improve their performance through exact and detailed training programs.

“I have been training with QuadraCoach for over 7 months and their methodology works. If you want to start running or like myself get back into a consistent running program, QuadraCoach will tailor-make a program to suit you and your goals. I am very pleased with the results. I am running much faster and stronger.”

Their scientific and technical approach, and different views on training have even helped me break some mental blocks. Joining Quadracoach was one of my best decisions.”
