Science-Based Holistic Coaching for All Abilities

  by Nicole Hunt



Testimonial: "Here's what you have done for me!  In the space of about a year I have gone from a world class sofa-spud who hadn't even run across the street in 18 years to a finisher in the Bridger Ridge Run!!  Yes, and not only did I beat my original goal of 8 hours, or my later amended goal 7 hours, I pushed the goal up to 6 hours and beat that by over 2 minutes at an official 5:57:55.  I could go on and on about the experience, but I'd be up all night typing.  So far, besides the birth of my children, it has been the highlight of my life.  Thanks for helping me achieve that."

Coaching Services

Your program will emphasize your running goals.  I will work with you to create a science-based training program that is tailor fit for you.  Together, we will build a solid foundation of trust and commitment that will allow you to grasp your goals while reaching for your dreams.

Your customized training schedule, running specific weight and plyometric programs will incorporate the latest scientific research, my own personal experiences that have worked best for me and numerous other recreational and elite athletes and what I learned from training with the Olympians.

I have successfully coached athletes from the 800m to the 50k. I will help you increase your power, vo2 max, lactate threshold, specific endurance, speed and running economy. 


I was fortunate to be coached by Dr Joe Vigil and train with Olympic Marathon Bronze Medalist, Deena Kastor, (above) as she was preparing for her marathon.
