Be Sisu Fit Training Programs
If you are a runner, skier or just want to get fitter - Be Sisu Fit has a training program for you! All training programs are developed based on science, but also explained in an easy-to-understand manner so that YOU can get most out of your training, reach your goals and smile all the way to the finish line!
I understand hiring a coach may be out of your reach, that is why I am developing generic training programs for Running and Nordic Skiing, while making sure every athlete can individualize them as much as possible by using their data, such as Intensity Zones or RPE.
In the next few months, I will be adding more generic programs into the shop:
Nordic (XCS) skiing there will be generic programs in three levels: beginner 3-6 hrs per week, intermediate 5-8 hrs per week and advanced 8+ hrs a week for Specific Preparation Period 8 weeks (November-December), Competition Season 13 weeks (January-March), and Generic Preparation 1 13weeks (May-July).
Running programs will include 5K, 10K, Half Marathon (21.1K) and Marathon (42.2K) in all before mentioned levels.
I also offer Strength for Endurance Athletes - stay tuned for the release in the coming months. This strength training programming will integrate specific strength training into your endurance training, making sure you are maximizing your potential. Why should an endurance athlete spend time strength training? I will explain my philosophy in a separate blog post soon, but in short, some of the benefits of strength training for an endurance athlete are injury prevention due to repetitive movement patterns in running, biking, skiing, a strong body recovers faster, and executes movements with more efficiency and at the end of the race you will have more power and slow down less.
All programs are available in Trainingpeaks.com software which you can access either via a web browser or by adding the App from your mobile app store. All programs will also be available in .pdf file.
Trainingpeaks is a training program delivery program where you can log in to get your training plan and you can see all the workouts in detail. It is easy to use, and you can sync all your devices (GPS-HR-Power) with the program. You can comment on all the workouts and communicate with your coach easily. You can also get all your assigned workouts synchronized with your Outlook or similar calendar.

I am doing my very best to make sure the generic programs are easy to read and execute, even if you don't have GPS/HR watch. This is done by converting Intensity Zones from HR and Pace based to the RPE scale. I also explain how to get your intensity zones and how to adjust the plan if needed.
However, if you have any questions or comments on the generic program, please don't hesitate to contact me: and I will be happy to answer your questions. I want you to reach your goals and want you to get in touch if you have any questions/suggestions/comments.
