As a coach it would be very helpful for me to be able to see parts of an athlete's profile that are not visible to other followers. I'm thinking specifically about performance oriented things like the Fitness & Freshness graph, Relative Effort graph, Power Curve, Training Log, etc. Every Strava member should have the ability to designate one or more of thier followers as a Coach, and that person would have the ability to view these elements of their profile to monitor training progress.

Hi Strava,

I think having a Coaching Marketplace within Strava can be a beneficial feature for athletes. 

  • Athletes and Coaches don't know how to find each other for different sports. It is usually through word of mouth. 
  • The Coaching Marketplace can show local coaches, their ratings, reviews, and also list athletes that are interested in training for specific sports
  • Coaches can manage their athletes training within Strava.
  • Coaches can have a separate view for all athletes under their management.
  • Strava AI Coaching Assistant can help advise both coaches and athletes on their fatigue, training, and recovery. 

An example of when I would use this feature is if I am looking for a running nutritionist, running strength coach, sprinting coach, or weight loss coach.

Thanks for submitting your idea to grant a coach access with insight into additional training data. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting.

Hi @Soren - how many Kudos will it take to put this idea into development? As a user that always has to send my coach specific training data, this feature is important. I’m sure I’m not the only one and there must be thousands across the world who would use this feature. Training Peaks and other platforms do have the feature, but we obviously love using Strava. Thank you

As a coach I use Strava to track my Athletes activities, it would be extremely helpful if, once designated as their coach, I could see:

- Full activity data, if hidden. E.g first/last km if they hide their home location. 

- Training calendar to more easily search back through previous activities. 

 

Thanks Strava team.

Hello, 

If this functionality was available then you would kill training peaks. I would prefer to use Strava to connect with my athlete. 

 

Thank you very much for making it happen. As I am sure that it's just a matter of time.

Coach accessibility to athlete info increases Strava’s usefulness and integration with how and why athletes track performance. Great idea.

I am a mentee and would like to grant my coach full access even if my runs are private. Strava team - can we do this please?

Hello. We wanted to let you know that your idea submission from March of 2023 will be archived. While this idea is interesting, we don’t have any immediate plans to implement this and currently aren’t able to prioritize this idea.

Please note that your feedback is valuable to Strava. As stated in our Community Idea Guidelines, we receive many idea submissions each week, and realistically, there may be various reasons that prevent us from including an idea on our Product Roadmap.  

We want to thank you for taking the time to submit your idea and we look forward to your continued contributions to the Strava Community.
