Welcome to the Natural Running Network Coaches Certification Site
It has taken decades of learning, trials and experience to finally evolve to this place. What we promise as founders of the Natural Running Network and diaz human performance LLC, a company dedicated to endurance sports performance, is that we are prepared to set a new standard for what a running coach should be.
Endurance running and racing is by far the most popular form of recreation in the United States today. Last year over 500,000 runners finished a marathon with over double this amount completing a half marathon. It is interesting to note that around the world over 60% of runners have been injured as a direct result of improper running form and inappropriate training. What does this mean to us? It means there existsis an extremely large audience of runners who are eager to learn how to run properly and to train successfully.
Our Level One Certification was developed to empower running group leaders and coaches with an education that cover the topics that are rarely presented in traditional coaching formats. A candidate that attends our symposium and successfully completes our exam will come away with information that will clearly set them apart as competent running coach, well beyond what is typical. This is an exciting time in this industry and we strongly feel that these tools will provide our coaches the ability to set the standard of what should and will be expected in the near future from coaches around the country.
