Individual coaching is a good option for any level of runner with a specific running goal in mind - PR in your goal race, run your first marathon, train for your next race without injury, build your endurance and/or speed before your next training cycle, or another running goal.

“I’ve really enjoyed having Tammy as an online coach. This is my first time using a coach, and I admit while I was a little anxious about not being able to do everything, Tammy quickly set me at ease. She created a plan that was customized to my marathon goals, provided the tools necessary to keep me accountable (online app, checking in via text and phone) and has been a huge support as I had to step back and deal with an injury. Great coach, great format — I’m really looking forward to crushing my next race with Tammy as my coach!” - Anita B.
“I am a former college swimmer, and looking for a new challenge in my 20s, became a fairly serious triathlete. However, after a few years of training too hard, I became burnt out and disillusioned with participating in any kind of competitive race. Fast forward to my 30s: after having a baby (ok 4 years after having a baby!), I decided I wanted give racing another chance, so I signed up for the National Women’s Half Marathon. Unfortunately I pushed myself too hard too soon and ended up with a micro-tear in my Achilles, preventing me from running the half and from running all together for 2 months.
When I returned to running I decided I needed another approach, so I signed up for Tammy’s individual coaching. Tammy designed a training plan that would ease me back into running and help prevent injury by focusing on strength training. Intuitively, she picked up on my hyper-competitive nature and reminded me (on many occasions) to train smart and to listen to my body. After 16 weeks of training, I ran the Philadelphia Half Marathon pain-free and finished in 2 hours! I was excited and surprised to have a PR, as it had been 9 years since I ran a half marathon! Most importantly, with Tammy’s help, I was able to re-discover my passion for competition and running and to cultivate a much healthier attitude in my training. Thank you Tammy!” - Alyson F.
