Science based, professional endurance coaching plans designed for intermediate, advanced and elite athletes.

I help you find THE PATH to RISE TO YOUR TRUE POTENTIAL for your best trail running PERFORMANCE yet.

Who am I?

I am a long distance mountain runner, certified running and ultramarathon coach, certified endurance sports nutritionist and certified personal trainer. I started mountain running almost 10 years ago and took part in my first race in 2015. Since then I have been practicing mountain running at a competitive level and have successfully completed races from 20 to 120km. 

In recent years I have studied and I continue studying the most advanced and newest training methodologies and principles, which I try to successfully apply in the programs of the runners I train. 

My goal is to provide people with the necessary education, resources, information and motivation they need to successfully practice trail running and ultramarathon events. The training plans are dedicated to intermediate, advanced and experienced runners.

What makes me different?

1. I believe that every person can transform their potential in actual results. It takes work, motivation, patience, self-knowledge and a structured and personalized training plan. My goal is to help every single person to get there in the most efficient way (not the fastest way) to the fulfillment of personal goals.

 

2. Personalization without limits.​

Training plans tailored for your goals, planned according to your availability and adapted considering your daily responsibilities.

3. Constant, unlimited communication.

I'll be there for you when you need me most.

Plans are 100% customized and developed based on each s' history, needs and goals and the progress is monitored on the TrainingPeaks platform.

During the 10 years since I practiced mountain running, I ran almost all over Romania, but also through countries such as Italy, Spain, France, Austria, Germany or Turkey.

Among the results obtained in the competitions are the following:

1st place - Ultramarathon Ciucaș X3 (2018) - 105km/ 5000m+

2nd place - Ultramarathon 7500 (2017) - 100km/ 7500m+

"I have known Alin for some time, he is a passionate runner and a good friend, as well as   as a coach. Until last year I ran for years without any plan. But at the end of the year 2021 I asked him to help me with a training plan in hopes of improving my motivation, times and running more efficiently.I was able to stick to a plan over the winter and the results were better than I noticed an improvement in all aspects: efficiency, dynamics, tone, motivation.

Thank you!"

"I started working with Alin out of a desire to train correctly and efficiently. Although I had a foundation in understanding running and some experience, working with Alin helped me in several ways.
  Through well-structured training and continuous support, I have reached personal bests in a much shorter time than I would have expected, which motivates me in my daily training. I was able to increase the volume and intensity of my training and ran new personal bests, both on the road and on the trail.
  I also like the dedication and involvement Alin shows in every context. He manages to provide the necessary support to each athlete he works with, which I personally consider essential in choosing the right coach. 
  Last but not least, Alin provided me with the necessary resources to document myself in the field of sports: books, articles, blog posts and open discussions related to this vast topic.
  The best part is that we constantly review my progress and I get the support I need, especially when the workouts aren't going perfectly or the goals aren't completely met. I consider Alin a friend and highly recommend the services he offers."

"This year I had the opportunity to train with a coach, more precisely with Alin Cîrdei.

Among the benefits felt, apart from the progress in my running and staying away from injury, was a great peace of mind that came with the confidence that I was doing things right. And a word of encouragement said at the right time also had its purpose.

Alin is a warm, competent person who takes an interest in his students."
