Distance coaches providing individual workouts during COVID-19

Posted on March 17, 2020

In an attempt to have your coaches stay connected and engaged with each of you we are excited to roll out a new coaching platform called Final Surge. The plan was to start this next summer but given the changes we moved that up and we are ready to go. It has many great features, we are certain you will find it easy to use and a wonderful tool to help you with your training. In brief we will be able to share your training schedule via a calendar with detailed daily instructions, the opportunity to upload your Garmin or Strava data, include post workout comments, notify us of injuries and share photos with each other. There is also a mobile APP that has all the same interface and makes is really easy to view your schedule and provide updates to your coaches. The goal is to use this as an online Training Log. We will be pushing this heavily moving forward so start getting in the routine now. It is really easy to check off if you completed a session and add comments right in the app.

It is really important that all of you that are running track follow the steps below, this is how we will be sharing all of your training moving forward! It is super easy and will only take 3 minutes so do it today!

STEP 1: You should receive an email with an invitation to join the Fairview Team powered by Final Surge. If you do not receive an email by this evening, please let me know.

STEP 2: Follow the link and create a FREE account.

STEP 3: Once you have your account created you will be able to view your schedule for the week. We will be providing different schedules based on the events you are training for. Each day there are suggested distances and workout variations depending on your level.

STEP 4: Download the FINAL SURGE APP in the Apple App Store or Google Play. Once you download the app use your same Login that you already created to sign into the APP. Be sure to ALLOW NOTIFICATION. This will be how you receive daily notification of your training for the day.

From there you can play around with the interface.
Here is a short VIDEO with highlights Detailed Daily Schedule: Each type of workout is color coded and each day has specific instructions. Scroll over the workout to see all the details.
Post workout we really encourage you to add comments and check the "Completion" "How You Felt" and "Perceived Effort" tabs. This will help your coaches ensure everything is going to plan and adjust as we go.
Coaches will get notification when you add comments so we can stay in touch easily via the app. It is basically like being able to text but right in the app. Coaches can run reports to see how everyone is progressing......so... we will be keeping tabs on who is really doing the work! If you use a Garmin or Stava it is really easy to upload the Data to that specific workout: GARMIN/STAVA Interface We can embed videos on the FILES and RESOURCES Section, there is already two videos in there.....Coach Tricia's CORE Routine and a video about the power of exercise on the brain.
Once we are allowed to meet again in person, coaches will be able to add Locations to workouts or long runs and include a map and address. This will be really great in the summer.
There is also a Social Wall feature that is really great. It is basically our own Fairview Instagram type board where you can post pictures, post your workout, talk about a cool run you did, encourage each other, etc.

Looking for a way to stay active and fight boredom?
