SUCCESS STORIES

Gareth  – New Zealand

“Asking Lewis to take me on in the build up towards my 12th marathon at Chicago this year, was the best thing to happen to me for my running performance so far. To take off over 8mins from my PB with a 2:46:31 finish was beyond what I considered possible before starting this process. I can not recommend New Levels Coaching highly enough for reaching your goals & helping get the most joy you can from your running. So very grateful for the whole experience and knowledge gained. Thank you!”

Hannah – London, UK

Totally recommend New Levels Coaching. I signed up with Gemma to train for the Amsterdam marathon and with the help of a super easy to use app she has coached me through not only my running journey but my strength and conditioning as well. Training with New Levels Coaching helped me run a 15 minute PB which was 10 minutes quicker than my plan!! Gemma managed my plan on a week by week basis, adjusting super quickly when I had small injuries and supporting me through the injuries with guidance and advice on how to get better quicker. I’ll be using signing up with Gemma again for my next race 😃

Lou – Hampshire, UK

“I met Lewis and Gemma at a Steve Cram Running Camp Nov 2018, I’m a keen recreational runner (I run so I can eat 😊) my running had plateaued and really needed some professional guidance to really help see what I’m capable of. Having chatted with Lewis over a beer I approached him to see if he would be interested in helping me. We had an initial call to review my goals, my goal was a big one the VLM 2019! We started my plan in December 2018, I’m now going into week 10 and loving it, the motivation from Lewis and the bite sized structured training has worked so well for me, during my training I’ve hit 4 PBs, half marathon, 10miles, 20k and fastest mile! I’ve been chasing that HM Pb for 6 years… I’m really enjoying my training and finally feeling that I can really smash this marathon.. big thanks to Lewis who had accommodated my frantic career into my plan and completely tailed a programme that works for me .. I’m loving it 😁”

Tom – Darlington, UK

“With a 20:52 best for 5k, and coming off a year of frustration (I’d never been able to get close to that sub-20 goal I’d been pushing so hard for), I approached Lewis to express how much I wanted to improve. That 30 minute call in October 2018 turned into 90+ and I left feeling very enthused about what was to come. Goals: to crack that sub-20 and then have a real crack at track events for the 2019 season. Lewis quickly set about putting my training plan together, whilst also being mindful of previous injuries. He identified physical improvements needed to compliment my new running regime. Initially, we set a 4 month plan, with an end goal of a 5k to go sub-20. Everything mapped out and clear, my job was simple….trust the process.What’s resulted since has been amazing. We’ve knocked nearly 90s off my 5k (way earlier than expected), and 39s off the Mile PB; confidence is sky high, and still climbing. I can’t speak highly enough of Lewis as a coach, as a person, as well as being grateful for all of the snippets of advice he offers up that have re-educated me on all aspects of my approach to running. 2019 is set up to be an exciting year.”

Steven – Worcestershire, UK

“Working with Lewis for the last 5 months has taking me to a marathon time I could only dream of. Going from 3.22 to 2.55 in 16 weeks training and in only my 2nd marathon. Also PB’d in all other distances. His plans are easy to follow and he is always on hand for advice if needed. Advice is also given on mindset, strength and conditioning and form to create an all round better runner! I’ve absolutely loved working with him and can’t wait to see what we can do over the next 12 months!”

Paula – Leicestershire, UK

“I contacted Lewis following an injury in the hope that he could help me to run sensibly and consistently and become stronger. He has been coaching me for over 3 months now and I am amazed by the results. I am benefiting immensely in terms of confidence and strength. I couldn’t be happier in my running and I am achieving faster race times too! Lewis is friendly, professional and incredibly easy to deal with. His passion to help others is clear and his wisdom and support is second to none. I often feel he cares as much about my running as I do and I would highly recommend him”

Nigel – Leicestershire, UK

“Lewis coached me from being unable to run at the start of the year with an Achilles injury to completing the London Marathon in April in a time of 3.53. His weekly structured sessions, enthusiasm and support have enabled me to improve on my 5k 10k and ,Half Marathon times. Top Coach, Full of Knowledge, Lewis takes you to that next level and gets you to be the best runner you can be.”
