City Coach was formed in 2000 as a partnership between elite athlete Christopher Bergland, and his long-time coach Jonathan Cane. Jonathan – better known as Coach Cane – remains the Head Coach, and Christopher serves as a consultant, while focusing on his work as an author and blogger for Psychology Today.
We work with a wide variety of runners and multisport athletes, ranging from beginners to World Champions. Our services include customized online training programs, and one-on-one coaching in swimming cycling, and running. Coach Cane oversees all training programs and works with a variety of qualified coaches.
In addition, we oversee group training programs for JackRabbit Sports in New York, offering Beginner Running programs, as well as groups for the NYC Marathon, Brooklyn Half Marathon, and the NYC Triathlon. We also offer Corporate Fitness training programs, having recently worked with the Time Warner Fit Nation program, and have conducted Corporate Health Fairs for Active.
