Do you need a coach?
It's true that you can find more information than you'll ever need about training and exercise physiology online and in books then sort it out to meet your own needs, if you have the time and interest to do that! Do you also have the right balance of motivation and discipline, objectivity and the ability to reign yourself in? A coach does all of this for you!

Why hire a coach?
Accountability & Motivation: this is the number one reason that people don't meet their fitness goals! A coach will do the boring stuff for you, tell you exactly what to do, hold you accountable, and make sure it's fun and interesting!
Experience, knowledge, science: It's absolutely true that you can learn what you need to know to train well yourself. But you don't have to. Hiring a coach takes advantage of someone else's specialized knowledge and experience. We'll worry about the numbers, the current research, the biomechanics, the neuromuscular stuff, etc for you!
Objectivity: Your coach knows when you need to push and when you need to rest for maximum benefit.
Short and long-term: We'll keep your training plan organized to meet all of your goals.
Education, inspiration, regular feedback, creative scheduling and more!

Sarah grew up as an elite figure skater, and currently is an alpinist, mountain runner, ice and rock climber, cyclist, a skier, and a USATF certified running coach. She's been running competitively for 21 years and after dozens of ultras, dozens of injuries, and a bout of overtraining syndrome, she's studied exercise physiology, biomechanics, and training philosophies with the same obsessive zeal that she brings to running. She's run the R2R2R, biked across Utah, summited Rainier in calendar winter, and competed everything from snow bike races to nordic marathons to ultra distance and sky races.
Sarah coached figure skating and hockey for 11 years, and has been teaching yoga since 2012.
