COACHING EXPERIENCE

Most of my coaching experience has been gained over the past 8 years training on a daily basis with the very first online running coach.

I’ve learned first hand what it takes to be a successful online coach. I have coached several runners over the past several years.

ABOUT ME

  • I get great satisfaction from helping others achieve their goals and dreams. I’ve been running my entire life. I communicate my knowledge in a clear, comprehensive and easy to understand manner for both the elite and recreational runner.
  • As a retired International Airline Pilot, I have figured out how to deal with training with respect to jet lag and red eyes. I can adapt your workouts to any type of travel schedule.

    I highly recommend Coach Scott Sayler! He is knowledgeable, patient, and kind. He is really good at motivating me to get running. Though I have been running off and on most of my life, I tend to get injured by jumping back in too fast. I’ve been working with him for two months, and he has helped me ease back into running without getting injured (so far!), and that is worth a lot to me. I’ve never met him in person, but feel like he’s a friend who has my best interest in mind. If you want/need a supportive and motivating coach, Scott Sayler is your guy!

    I was the heaviest and most out of shape I had been in my life. I found myself having to rest between flights of stairs and even my “fat” pants were so tight I had to unbutton them to be able to sit comfortably when driving. Since working with Scott I’ve dropped 18 pounds, hills and stairs aren’t as tough as they used to be. Scott has been patient and encouraged me even when I wasn’t being the most easy guy to work with. He’s even changed my attitude and outlook on life, for which I will be eternally grateful. I can’t believe how far I’ve come from where I was and I owe it all to Scott. I truly believe with Scott’s coaching and guidance that I will reach my fitness goals. Who knows…I may even surpass them.
