More About Coach Michelle

I am a certified RRCA coach, as well as NASM/AAFA certified Group Ex Instructor with experience in training runners from their first 5k to marathon distance. I do a group fun runs as well as more focused individualized track workouts for all levels. I have worked with adults of all ages and skill levels! I am currently training a friend to run her first half marathon this fall as well as training an experienced runner to hit a PR for the NY Marathon in November. Both clients have my personalized on-line programming, as well as weekly sessions/check-ins. I try and give away to my clients the joy I get from running; to me to share that is the most important thing. I have designed several online programs that fit the needs of each individual. Many of my one-on-one clients are beginning runners; I have coached clients to run their first 5K distance and the joy we BOTH get from this accomplishment is immense!

I ran the New York City Marathon in November of 2015, which was my 3rd marathon. (I also hit a personal record by an hour!). I placed 2nd in my age division in 2013 in the Pete McArdle Cross Country Classic (15K) here in NY! I have ran over two dozen half marathons. I love running; it will always be a huge part of my life and I'd like to share that love with others.

My session would really depend on what goal the client was trying to achieve. For beginners who are looking to run their first 5k, I would begin the session with dynamic stretches and we may do a 20-30 minute run/walk at a conversational pace. For an intermediate/advanced runner who is looking to reach a new goal in their running, I would encourage a speed/hill workout which would involve running form drills, strides, interval-speed work followed by a cool-down and running specific strengthening exercises.

We only had one session so far due to rainy spring weather, but so far, my son loves Coach Michelle! He is 13 and autistic, and very out of shape, and she is very good with him. She was upbeat and very clever in the ways she was able to engage and motivate him to stretch out and run. We are looking forward to continuing to work with her. She is incredible!

Knowledgeable

Coach Michelle was fantastic and unique. She was well prepared from start to finish. She even called me before and had an extensive conversation with me to find out my needs and what I was looking for to ensure my goals were met and that she could help me. When she showed up she once again reviewed them with me, gave me a thorough assessment, managed to integrate strength, form, running, all in one session, I felt very fortunate to have formed this connection!!

Coach Michelle is absolutely wonderful. I've been working with her for about a month doing in-person sessions and online training, and already notice major changes in my strength and form. She is extremely knowledgeable and motivating, and does a great job of giving constructive feedback while still being positive and encouraging. She is also a great listener and she truly takes the stress out of the training process--making it a fun, yet still challenging and effective process. I would highly recommend her.

Put a great program together for me per my request. Very responsive and really nice!

Very understanding, teaching me at my pace and very educated in her training. Fun and looking forward to my next sessions

Michelle is a terrific coach. In fewer than 5 sessions, my running has changed dramatically-- better form, more energy and definitely more excitement. Michelle is not only very knowledgeable about running and fitness in general, she is also extremely attentive and SUPER encouraging. I recommend her highly!

My experience with coach Michelle was fabulous. My kids improved a lot just in the first session

I learned so much running with Coach Michelle and had a lot of fun. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a lot to share but she is also flexible in ensuring the approach is tailored to the person. Coach Michelle is super warm and easy to talk to so my session just flew by! I definitely plan to work with her again.

Michelle is a thoughtful and knowledgeable running coach with the experience and background to push both a novice and advanced runners alike to a new level. She has great follow up and is always ready with advice for tweaking your program for when "life" happens.
