You only have one athletic journey to take, so it is important for you to find the coaching solution that is the best fit for you. Long-term relationships are always the most fruitful in terms of performance gains, so when you are in search of a coach, we urge you to do your homework, but we will also help you along the way.
The whole Purple Patch Fitness coaching program revolves around the Four Pillars of Performance. Your program and the coaching relationship are not just an endurance plan, but a holistic program of daily planning and education across training, nutrition, strength, and recovery. You cannot be coached by Purple Patch Fitness without buying into our core belief in the integration of training into life and our mission to improve both sporting performance but in turn your health, performance at work, and bringing the best version of yourself to life.
We do not set up our coaching like others. We refuse to simply tag a coach with a logo and send them into the wild. Instead, over many years, we have developed a process which has proven to be highly effective:
Coaching: Our coaching team is led by Matt Dixon, and all our coaches utilize the planning strategies and workouts developed by Matt. While we encourage every coach to develop their own style and tone, every one of our athlete’s programs should be unmistakably Purple Patch Fitness.
Plan Delivery: Purple Patch Fitness training is delivered via Today’s Plan. We utilize this as it is the most powerful training delivery and communication tool available. It also enables us to structure your workouts to be easily delivered to your favorite training tools such as Zwift, TrainerRoad, and Garmin.
Integration: Our mission is to integrate training into your life. We don't want you to just improve in your sport. We hope to help improve your health and ability to thrive in all aspects of life.
Philosophy: Every Purple Patch coach and athlete relationship is anchored around a training philosophy born out of the Purple Patch Pillars of Performance. When we get your "recipe" right, you accelerate. Every time.
Education. The best coaching stems from continued growth and learning so expect to be educated on the why behind your workouts. Also, realize your coach is immersed in ongoing education and support from Matt and the entire team as well. Together, we thrive.
What You Can Expect From Us
Professionalism and Quality: You will be paired with a designated coach who has been hand-selected and trained by Matt Dixon and matched to your athletic needs and personality.
Timeliness and Responsiveness: Regular check-ins with your coach for feedback, guidance, and meaningful conversations surrounding your performance journey. You own your journey, but we are here to support and mentor.
Education and Empowerment: Through our Education Hub, live Meetings with Matt sessions, coach office hours, video resources, and online community support; we empower you to understand the “WHY” behind your training and journey so you can execute properly and make great decisions.
The Purple Patch Fitness coaching journey is not just a plan. It is an education.
