Personally, I’m not a big fan of online coaching.

Who was your online coach?

I take it you’re not satisfied with my already provided explanation. That’s your prerogative but, as I already explained, I think people who use online coaching are missing out on a huge aspect of what coaching is all about: personal observation. I can’t even begin to count the number of times a coach of mine would watch me during a workout and adjust the workout on the fly based on observations of how I was handling the workout. You can’t get that without your coach being present. Anyone who has studied the sport could write up a schedule but coaching is much more than that. I have been asked by a few people if I would coach them online and I said no every time. First because of the reason I stated. Second because, if I were to suggest online coaching, I would suggest certain individuals other than myself.
