Description

An improvement training in Saint Gervais for trail-runners who wish to take their mountain running a step up. We will train during 4 days. I will assist you together with a physical trainer. We will do a series of tests to assess physical and physiological conditions. Then we will put the results in practice in the field.

This is the chance to answer all your questions about training. How to improve your performance? How to best manage your season and the risks of injury? Also, how to improve your efficiency through physical training and diet? Because there are many ways to improve and enjoy it even more!

A great way to start the season on the right foot! You can also bring your family. There is a special “companion” rate and possible activities near the lodging. For example thermal baths, spa, swimming pool, hiking, tobogganing, etc.

Some highlights of this trail running course are the following:
– You can bring the family;
– A training course focused on physical preparation to take good advice home with you;
– A star-shaped journey;
– Key logistics in hand and qualified coaching trail.

These 4 days are supervised by myself and Vincent Rabec. He is manager of Optimasport Solutions Council and Support in Sport and Physical Activity. In addition, he is physiotherapist with various international degrees. And he is also physical trainer of France hockey teams, professional football clubs, top tennis athletes, running and trail running.

Are you interested in this trail course? Then please contact me! If it doesn't match your expectations, I will present you other courses and trail outings which I organize. I offer options in the Alps and elsewhere, for beginners as well as more experienced. I would be thrilled to take you along these beautiful mountain paths and coach you during your evolution. Please contact me for information about the next departure dates.

I also offer trips together with other professionals, like Thomas Lorblanchet, check it out!

Great experience, but definitely favored toward elite runners. One of our guides, JC, was amazing. He cared about every runner. The other guide seemed only to care for the elites (and himself). On top of Col des Montets, I asked if we had time to put on warm layers. The guide said "of course," but then quickly proceeded to run off with the entire group while I stood bare and freezing with my gear unpacked. Total lack of consideration for the well-being of his runners. Otherwise a great tour.

Mon stage initiation trail à La Plagne avec Caroline a été une très belle expérience. Son expérience sa disponibilité son sourire m'ont permis d'assimiler les bases du trail. Mes compères et moi même avons progressé jour après jour toujours dans la bonne humeur. Aujourd'hui je me sens capable de faire mes premières courses avec des bases techniques, alimentaire et de sécurité. Je compte continuer mon apprentissage avec un stage intermédiaire en 2017.

Pour moi le trail c'est avant tout la découverte de nouveaux territoires, les rencontres et les échanges avec d'autres passionnés, le respect de la nature. Mes 3 stages avec Caroline m'ont permis de retrouver ces fondamentaux dans un cadre toujours bon enfant, mais pas moins professionnel. Caroline est une passionnée de montagne et de tout ce qui y touche (sport, culture, gastronomie) et elle sait comme personne transmettre sa passion et ses bons conseils, toujours avec le sourire. Je garde un excellent souvenir des rencontres avec les autres stagiaires et mais aussi avec les autres encadrants, Guillaume, Seb, Cédric, Lydie et tant d'autres rencontrés au cours de ces stages.

J'ai fait deux stages avec Caro, c'est devenu une amie, et chacun de ces stages m'a laissé des souvenirs inoubliables. Le premier stage en 2014 en Haute Savoie à l'occasion du Trail du Gypaète. Le Deuxième stage en 2015, dans les Calanques de Marseille. Ces stages auront été parfaits à tous les niveaux: Paysages grandioses (on sent qu'ils ont été choisis avec soin), des échanges techniques avec des "pros" (un grand moment quand Caro inspecte les sacs à dos...), pleins de conseils nutrition - mode de vie etc... La découverte des autres stagiaires mais aussi des autres encadrants (très bon contact avec Guillaume Lenormand par ex.). Des conditions matérielles top (hébergement, repas, organisation etc...). Seule critique: le temps passe trop vite, c'est toujours trop court! Donc au final quand c'est fini, on n'a qu'une envie... c'est de repartir pour un autre stage! Et vu le nombre de personnes que l'on croise sur les stages qui en sont à leur n-ième participation, je peux affirmer que ce sentiment est partagé!

J'ai eu l'opportunité de participer à deux stages, l'un dans le Cantal, l'autre à Chamonix. Un grand plaisir de partager une passion commune avec des participants très sympas de tous niveaux et de tous horizons. Caroline, une grande professionnelle de la montagne et du trail, n'a pas son pareil pour organiser ces rencontres, et tout cela dans une super ambiance et des paysages à couper le souffle.
