See what our athletes have to say about our coaching!
From Kaitlin W.
“Becca is an awesome coach and fun person that has always been supportive of my goals and motivates me to do better. She creates great workouts that have helped me continuously improve and get great results during races.
Becca is always there to meet my needs and make any adjustments to workout plans that are needed while still helping me to reach my goals. “
From Christie P.
“Joining the Kawaoka Coaching team has been the best decision of my running career. I was a competitive gymnastics through college, and started my running career later in life. After a few years of running casually I decided it was time to step up my game. Coach Becca encouraged me to join her for some group track training sessions, and I was hooked! Over the past 18 months I have set PR’s in every distance I have raced: 5k, 10k, 15k, and ½ marathons. Not small PR’s either… Huge ones! I even won a half marathon! I strongly believe this is entirely due to the dedication that this coaching team has to my training plan. Becca has helped me set strong yet reasonable goals, and has been there to provide customized, honest feedback.
I appreciate her ability to help me push my boundaries and explore my potential as an athlete. She always finds ways to motivate me physically and mentally. Many people have the ability to train an athlete, but few have the ability to truly coach. Becca and Elliot have it. I can’t recommend this team enough!”
From Zach M.
“There is nobody else I would trust my season with!! Having tried to do it on my own for a couple years, I’ve learned the value of an excellent coach who actually cares about you as an individual, and I refuse to race any other way now. With a successful race season full of PR’s done, I’m ready to attack this upcoming year and blow last years numbers away with another season of Kawaoka Coaching.
Highlights of my past season with Kawaoka Coaching:
– Removed 45 minutes from previous IRONMAN 70.3 time to set a new PR
– Removed 30 minutes from previous OLY time for new PR
– Improved open water comfort and confidence to find new swim PRs”
