TrainingPeaks/UltraFit - Anyone have any comments?

I'm thinking about using one of the TrainingPeaks/UltraFit coaches. Prices seem kinda steep, so before I sign-up for anything I'm doing some research. Here's one of their coaches fee schedule:
_______________________________________________________________________________________
Services and Fees:
One-on-One Coaching Program: $250 Start Up Fee, $325 per four week block. 10% discount for 24-week payment. This includes unlimited telephone and e-mail contact and the use of our scheduling and log-in system at www.TrainingPeaks.com.

Quarterly: $200 Start Up Fee, $400 per 12 week schedule. This includes use of our scheduling and log-in system on www.Trainingpeaks.com.

One-to One coaching in person: $75 per hour.

Telephone consultations: $100 per hour
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Up to this point I've been 100% self coached and don't see anything wrong, but I'm always looking for ways to improve and am thinking that using a coach could only help me improve. Anyone have any input either good or bad about TrainingPeaks/UltraFit? If you don't want to post your opinions email or PM me.

$325 per month is exceptionally high for one-on-one coaching. There are loads of coaches you can get one-on-one time with for much less and same quality.
