1. TIME TRIALS
Time trials, involving runs of various distances, are conducted over specified intervals during the training to assess physical capacity and to analyze progress of training. Based on the results of Time Trials, individuals are promoted to the higher-level training group.
2. FITNESS LEVEL DETERMINATION
We follow a systematic and scientific approach to training. Any new joinee, looking for any level of training, regardless of their prior running experience goes through build-up stage, which is conducted to determine their fitness level. We also conduct Time Trials to determine their fitness level, physical condition, stamina level, etc.
3. RUNNING HISTORY AND HEALTH
Following this, we conduct a brief discussion with the individual about their personal health, experience in running, etc.
4. CATEGORIZE INTO APPROPRIATE GROUP
Based on the fitness level and the Time Trial results, we categorize a new joinee into groups – White, Yellow, Red, Blue and Black, with Black being the most advance group, training for full and ultra marathons.
5. DETERMINE WORKOUTS BASED ON GROUPS
Just as every runner requires a specific type of running shoes, we understand that each runner requires a specific training according to their fitness level. We hold weekly meetings to decide workouts specific and appropriate to each group. These workouts are then circulated to the trainers and executed.
