More About Coach Jacqueline

Still available during COVID-19! I am a USATF Level 1 Coach. I previously coached at the high school level in NYC at The Brearley School on the Upper East Side, and I now work with athletes individually and in groups. I also have provided and am available for clinics for whole teams. I typically train athletes between ages 10-18, although I am available to coach all ages including adults.

I have experience in training kids who have issues focusing and helping them with forming self-discipline. I am also great with kids who have funky form and need help learning how to use their bodies in the most efficient way possible!

Athletes of mine have improved and achieved at every level - from winning their event at the middle school meet to running at colleges such as York and West Point!

I am a NJCAA two time All-American in the 4x100 and the 400 hurdles, as well as finishing 5th in State (California) in the Heptathlon and second in Southern California in the 4x400. I hold the record at my college for the 4x400, 400 hurdles, and the Heptathlon, and placed first in the Western State Conference in the 400 hurdles. I competed at College of the Canyons in Southern California under the coaching of gold medalist (4x400) Denean Hill (née Howard) and American record holder and silver medalist (400 meter hurdles) Lashinda Demus. Outside of track and field, I played soccer from age 5 through college, and dabbled in rugby for a year.

My location schedule is as follows:
Tuesday/Thursday: The Great Lawn in Central Park
Wednesday/Friday/Sunday: Lou Lodati Park in Sunnyside (Queens, off the 7 train)
Saturday/Sunday: Astoria Park Track
Can also train over FaceTime, Google Hangouts, or Zoom!

In a typical session we will start with a warmup and drills, and then a track workout. I focus on good mechanics and running technique, and place a heavy emphasis on consistency. Depending on the athlete, some bodyweight strength exercises will be included in the workout. For online sessions, I usually talk through the previous week's workouts with the athlete, cover any concerns they have, and detail the next week's workouts. We will go over any video the athlete has provided to talk technique, and go through any appropriate drills on camera.

In our first session, you should expect to spend around 10-20 minutes discussion goals, any previous injuries, current training plan, etc, before we begin training. I want to make sure I understand where you are coming from and what your goals are before we start!

I train athletes for all sprint distances as well as both hurdle races. For other sport clients who need help with form, we can include a sprint workout for increasing stamina, or we can leave it out for a shorter overall session.

Hurdle sessions are held at Astoria Park as it has a full size rubber track.

Great teacher and really helped with our daughters form

Coach Jacqueline was great, my 7 year old daughter had so much fun. She didn’t want the session to end, I would highly recommend her. We’ll be booking more training sessions for sure.

Coach Jacqueline was a hit with both of my young girls. Very relatable, engaging and able to deliver valuable lessons to our young runners. Look forward to continuing to more technical work with her.

Jacqueline has been working with my 14 year old for about 1 year. Since then he has seen major improvement in his sprinting and overall cardio. This has transferred into all the different sports that he plays. I would highly recommend her for all.

Coach Jacqueline is great!! She just started working with our 16 year old son on hurdles. It’s a brand new race for him and she is doing a phenomenal job on helping him with his form and strategy for the race. She’s very positive and knowledgeable of the sport and our son really enjoys working with her. I highly recommend her!! Thanks Coach Jacqueline!!

Coach Jacqueline is terrific. She made time to see us on relatively short notice. My daughter liked her right away and the session made a definite change in her form and performance the next day. Cannot recommend her highly enough and we look forward to our next session.

Where do I begin? Coach Jacquelin has been absolutely amazing. I have been training for the FDNY physical exam with not much progress on my own. I have been running for quite some time and developed a knee injury and decided that I needed help. I scheduled an appointment with Coach Jacqueline and she immediately spotted what was wrong with my running mechanics. We have been working together at the Astoria track and I have made significant improvements since. She implemented a at home workout routine for myself and has been following up with me daily. Coach Jacqueline has amazing patience and it has been an absolute joy working with her. I will highly recommend her to anyone that wants to maximaize their running experience!

My kid enjoyed the 1st session and says she now knows the right way! She can’t wait for her next session.

Coach Jacqueline is a great coach. If you are looking for a highly engaged and motivational running coach, I highly recommend contacting Jacqueline.

My teenage daughter's running technique has improved tremendously in just four training sessions with Jacqueline.

During each session, Jacqueline clearly explains a particular running concept, demonstrates it and then coaches my daughter on execution. She also provides follow-up training exercises to reinforce the running principles my daughter is learning.

Jacqueline was a great help in getting my son prepared to be a D1 track athlete. She was so knowledgeable and patient, even over a virtual session. We definitely recommend!!

My son had his first session with Coach Jacqueline and she made the most creative and thoughtful training plan for him to correct issues with his running form. My son is a very competitive soccer player and is looking to become faster and more explosive on the soccer pitch. Coach Jackie’s unique experience as both a college soccer player and college track star makes her a perfect match to train my son. She worked with him to set collaborative goals that will help him improve his speed and explosiveness on the soccer pitch. Having a coach like jackie who knows what it takes to play at such a high level is a tremendous asset! Jackie is positive even when she was giving critical feedback to my son and has great communication skills with kids. My son told me he had so much fun working with her and can’t wait to train with her again. She gave him exercises to practice in between sessions and spent time making sure he understood how to do them correctly.
If you have a child who wants to get faster and obtain more explosive speed than I highly recommend Coach Jackie. She is not just a coach but a speed scientist, who uses science, technology, positivity, humor and fun to help the athletes she trains reach their goals.

Working with Coach Jacqueline Keeley has been a blessing. My 16 year old daughter had been struggling with her school coach who is a former long distance runner and coach Keeley has helped her as a sprinter with her form and improving her time and shes PR'd at her track meets...super grateful for her patience, she's such a motivating and encouraging coach. Can't wait for session 4...Coach Jacqueline Keeley is the BEST!!!!!!

Jacqueline is terrific. Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, no nonsense, but understanding and pays attention to the details. My daughter was reluctant at first and now can't wait to train with her more.

100% awesome; she’s great - book her now!

She has done an outstanding job with my 10 year old in fixing his arm movement and diagnosing an imbalance in his stride. Highly recommend.

Jake has never competed before but now wants to enter college as a 200/400/800 runner. Coach Jacqueline eased him into the game and he came away with self confidence that he could do this. She realized the value of not only good form and training but that the mind game is half the battle with newbies. Will continue to work with her to get Jake ready for the season!

My daughter was very happy with coach Jacqueline. Coach Jacqueline was very nice and patient to my daughter; in her first session she learn a lot. I will definitely recommend her classes.

My daughter said working with Jacqueline was great on all fronts. Looking forward to future workouts.

My daughter loves Jacqueline's style of coaching! It was only their first session, but it felt like they knew each other for a long time already. Her confidence as a coach is contagious. My daughter learn so much that first session.
Hope she has more time to train my daughter.

Jacqueline is an excellent coach! I haven't run in a long time and wanted to get back into it. She was very patient with me in correcting my form, but let me challenged at all times.

She knows her stuff.

Coach Jacqueline was a great coach on our first lesson. She is knowledgeable, courteous, and accommodating. She demonstrated many interesting techniques used for both the warm-up and practice sprint phases. I plan on booking more sessions in the near future.

My 10 year son gets a lot out of the sessions. He works hard and comes away feeling better about his abilities. Coach Jacqueline is great with him and communicates well with him and also me so I would always know what was going on, goals, and results. We highly recommend Coach Jacqueline.

Great coach and a very active and fun session. Will definitely book more sessions with Jacqueline

Coach Jacqueline was so great and so much fun to work with. As a beginner, I didn't know how well I would do; however, she really used the one session to make me love hurdling and made me want to pursue it for a long time. She gave me a good base for hurdling and I can't wait to book another session with her once I get the chance.
