Lorraine Moller, four-time Olympian, Bronze Medalist & International Champion, presents upcoming Lydiard™ coaches courses. LYDIARD™ I and II Course Content  includes: Theory and Application of Lydiard training, including the five energy developmental phases, the Lydiard Principles, and the essential timing considerations that prepare the runner for peak performances when it counts year after year. Most participants have an AHA! experience and never go back to mono and mix-it-all-up training methods again.

What Runners & Coaches Say About the Lydiard™
Certification Courses & Training

good words. good people.

  • “This was the best training I’ve ever received for my profession.  It makes a huge difference to be trained personally by someone who used the system and became very successful with it.   Everything made sense and the analogies were awesome.  I also loved practicing the workouts rather than receiving them on a sheet of paper and not experiencing them.  I could say so much more!”

    Jill Burchmore, CO
  • “Just wanted to send a quick note your way to say thank you for a FANTASTIC weekend! I feel like I learned so much and it was worth every penny. I can’t wait to find how I decide to use all my new skills and help fellow runners! Yourself, Nobby and everyone in the class were so insightful and a great part of the experience.”

    Justine Hilton, CO

    Coalan McMahon, Graduate Audit Class

I traveled all the way from Bermuda to Boulder, Colorado to take part in the Lydiard I & II Course. Thank you so so much for very fantastic days ... I was transfixed from the get go,there was not one minute I wanted to miss!  The guests appearances of Melody Fairchild and sports psychologist Dr Doug Jowdy were a super great addition and very, very informative.

    Victoria Fiddick, Bermuda
  • “This course delivered in every way. It didn’t meet my expectations – it surpassed them by far!  You gave us all so much and then kept giving more. It was truly incredible to witness this approach on a daily basis. Your passion for what you are trying to achieve was relentless, inspiring and captivating all at the same time. A truly world class experience, giving me the tools to go out and help athletes reach their goals. This course is a must for any coach who wants their athletes to reach their full potential. Recommended 100%+”
