Thousands of coaches worldwide use Dr. Jack Daniels’ proven training methodology (VDOT) popularized in Daniels’ Running Formula. The science behind VDOT allows coaches to quickly determine appropriate training paces to improve race performances. Now, there’s a VDOT app to help simplify coach management so coaches can spend more time focusing on their athletes.

The app calculates each athlete’s VDOT so coaches can write workouts and quickly apply custom paces to one or more athletes at a time. It’s great for sorting/tracking training data, grouping athletes into appropriate training groups and motivating them via push notifications from the mobile app.

Our most common feedback? “It’s so simple!” Sign up now and start inviting your athletes. From there, start adding training and let VDOT save you time by removing a lot of calculations and guesswork.

"At the level I'm coaching, where even just a few seconds can be make or break, being "close enough" with how I prescribe training doesn't cut it. Better coaching means accurate information dispersed to my athletes. Since we started organizing our training through VDOT, streamlining so many processes has saved us time and eliminated any questioning I would do about properly prescribing training paces and volumes. I'm looking forward to seeing this app evolve because it's a major part of our system now."

"The VDOT system helps me individualize the training for each of our runners and also gives us a great indicator of how fast they’re capable of racing based on their fitness levels. The VDOT is the cornerstone of our training program."

"Utilizing VDOT Coach takes the guess work out of pacing for coaches and athletes, especially when coaching large training groups. It gives me the ability to customize training plans for a variety of levels from the couch potato turned endurance athlete to the Boston qualifier."
