Not only will you get the incredible value of the eBook and 12-Week Race Ready Training Program, you also receive guidance and coaching by program creator, athlete and coach, Chase Kosterlitz. The five one-on-one virtual coaching sessions will ensure you stay on track with your SUP training program and answer any questions you have along the way.

Video Stroke Analysis
You will also receive a detailed analysis of your stroke through video submission. Using poor technique is a major cause of injury and reduced performance for stand up paddlers. We paddle thousands of times during a training session or race. If each stroke is just a little off or incorrect, the compounded effects can be tremendously negative.
To complete the filming and submission, follow the simple step-by-step instructions sent to your email. Any smart phone will be sufficient for capturing and uploading the video. Using video to improve technique is the absolute best way to see what you are doing wrong and work to make the correct adjustments. Each analysis includes a comprehensive report with detailed drills and instructions to help improve your technique. Don’t let the hard work in your training and racing suffer because of poor SUP technique.
12-Week Race Ready SUP Training Program
This option includes the SUP Training The Smart Way eBook plus the 12-Week Race Ready SUP Training Program (Beginner/Intermediate or Advanced Program for a 5 to 14-mile race). Both programs contain every detailed workout you need to prepare for your race and achieve maximum results. Each periodized 12-Week Program uses heart rate based training zones to accurately gauge your effort so you can maximize the efficiency and benefits of each workout. Targeted interval workouts help train the right energy systems at the rights times to help you reach peak performance for your race.
Both programs contain detailed instructions for tailoring the plan to your experience and the distance and type of race you are training for. Would you rather train for more or less than 12-weeks? There are detailed instructions for adapting the program to fit these needs. For advanced paddlers, the 12-Week Advanced Program is the exact training Chase Kosterlitz has developed and used for the past three years to get proven results. The beginner program is based on these same principles of training with similar workouts, only at lower volumes and intensities and slightly different strategies. Regardless of your skill level, both plans will help you get results.
Start your program with a step-by-step guide to assess your current level of performance. This will allow you to monitor progression throughout the program and make the prescribed adjustments as needed. The training begins with a short base development phase to establish the foundation of your SUP training. The periodized volume and intensity builds from week to week, with rest weeks to help consolidate gains and maximize training benefits.
Approaching the race, you won’t need to second-guess your training strategies as there are tapering and peaking phases built into the program. This will help you reach peak performance at just the right time for maximum results. Don’t leave your training to chance and consider one of the 12-Week Programs to prepare for your next race the smart way.
