Garmin Coach is your personalized virtual personal trainer. Because, with it, you can prepare for a 5 km, 10 km or half marathon run, with expert advice and a dynamic and personalized training plan, which will change depending on your performance and goals. To do this, you only need to have a compatible Garmin device and access your platform. All without cost.

Offering state-of-the-art smart devices is not enough for Garmin. These must be supported by an advanced and complete application, such as Garmin Connect, which allows detailed control of all physiological parameters and results obtained in training.

In addition, for maximum performance, Garmin Coach is available in this application, a function that provides a personal trainer for the user, with which he can achieve the desired running goals, and in the most structured, safe and useful way possible. To do this, you can choose from three personal trainers, who offer different methods to achieve your desired goals. 14

Adapted plans

Thanks to Garmin Coach, the plans are customized for both beginners and marathoners who want to go one step further, with rates ranging from running / walking combinations to a high pace.

Thus, training sessions are synchronized with the compatible Garmin watch and are adjusted according to the performance performed throughout the plan. In addition to providing running training sessions, the user receives videos that explain the exercises in more detail and offer advice on aspects such as preparation or nutrition, in order to meet the defined goal.

How it works

Access to the plan is made through the Garmin Connect platform, and the indications on the watch are also downloadable. Therefore, it is not necessary to constantly check the phone to find out which exercises or workouts should be performed. Through the Garmin Coach widget on the device, you can view the plan’s next training sessions, directly on your wrist. 15Specifically, for beginners, Garmin Coach offers the option to select the race goal between 5 km, 10 km or half marathon. Then choose your weekly running distance, average running pace and, if desired, train with a time goal or complete the distance.

From here, it’s time to choose the personal trainer: Jeff Galloway, an Olympic athlete, also recognized for his books and training programs, whose methods help beginners to start running; Greg McMillan, online physiologist and personal trainer for running; and Amy Parkerson-Mitchell, a physiotherapist and running specialist, who focuses on the principles of biomechanics to prevent injuries while running.

Once the personal trainer has been chosen, it is necessary to indicate which days of the week he can train and a long running day, if necessary. Then, it is time to indicate the day of your competition so that the plan can be adapted to your calendar, taking into account the time remaining until the big day.

From here everything is ready. Garmin Connect, together with the chosen personal trainer, will suggest training and exercises during the days of the week you have indicated, so that on the day of the competition you can reach your goals.

Garmin Connect, the global solution

Garmin Coach is part of Garmin Connect, the company’s advanced platform that allows you to optimize your technology devices to the maximum. An application that offers complete and detailed information about physiological data and daily goals or sleep. In addition, it provides training sessions already carried out or the possibility to design a customized one for the user, organizing a calendar and combining different exercises, with several repetitions and a specific duration of each session.

Even in disciplines such as cardio, yoga, strength and pilates, it is possible to enjoy animated exercises, on compatible devices, which guide you in sport visually and through detailed instructions to be able to perform the exercises accurately.
