“Claude was the one who introduced me to the world of trail running.Before that, I was training with another road running coach and what I lacked was an individual approach and focus on the mental side of things. Despite the remote principle of communication, I fully received what I had been missing before.
Claude provides constant monitoring not only of your physical condition but also of how you feel mentally. Listens and changes the program if necessary. He has a lot of experience in the strength training of runners, I enjoyed every plyometric workout that was in my plan. I highly appreciate Claude’s work, because regardless of whether you have fulfilled your plan or achieved your goal, you can always count on help in working on mistakes and support in any situation in which you find yourself on your running journey.”

“I have become stronger, faster and wiser since Coach Claude Truter has taken me under his wing and guided me through my training programs, race prep, the races themselves, as well as my stresses and well-being. He has impacted my running greatly and therefore my life as well, as a huge percentage of it involves running, thinking about running and planning to run. I have achieved PBs for my 10km, 21.1km and 42.2km road races and completed two amazing, long-distance trail races in just over a year. This in itself is something to celebrate, however, learning more about myself and running as a sport, is what I am grateful for. Claude develops very specific and individualized training plans for me, based on my strengths and weaknesses, and aimed at my goals and races. My programs are specific and fun, and include a variety of workouts to ensure I remain strong and focused. He keeps a close eye on my training, my progress and me as an individual. I have met many other amazing runners through him and I’m so thankful for our worldwide running community. He taught me 3 most important must-haves: passion, determination and consistency. With these, self-belief and a little help from your friends, you can definitely reach your dreams and goals. I have become accountable and strive to do my very best in order to achieve the unimaginable.”
