"I trained with Georgie for four years and enjoyed every single session.  She helped train me for 10K races, 30K off-road races and triathlons and was able to put together training plans that pushed me but worked within the limits of my lifestyle.  I looked forward to my Tuesday mornings with her as not only were they part of my training but also became therapy! One warning though - when doing hills with Georgie and there are other runners around - she will never be beaten!" ~Mags
About

Meet Georgie

Hi, I'm Georgie.

I'm an endurance athlete, personal trainer and running coach based in Calgary, Alberta. I'm passionate about fitness and dedicated to helping people reach their health, wellness and fitness goals. I am now a NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist, ensuring that your fitness program meets you needs.

I've competed in half, full marathons, duathlons, triathlons and ultra races including the Marathon des Sables - gruelling six-day 250 km endurance race in the Sahara desert, the Calgary Marathon where I finished with a Boston qualifying time, and I have completed two of the Sinister 7 solo event, 148km and the 100miler, finishing 5th overall lady. I also finished the 50 miler North Face Endurance Challenge in San Fransisco, California.

I remember going out for my first run at the age of 12 to get fit for my school netball team in the UK. I haven't stopped since.  Running gives me a sense of freedom and self esteem. I am motivated to get out and exercise because I love the satisfaction of finishing a run or working hard, as I know it will be worth it. Instead of giving myself reasons of can't, I give myself reasons why I can.

I love being outside. I enjoy cultivating a love of running in my clients – whether you’re just starting out or ready to do that ultra-marathon, I’m the run coach for you. I’m a transplant from the UK and I just can’t get enough of the awesome Alberta air! I’ll meet you OUTSIDE.

It really makes me feel good and I want to help YOU to feel good. I'm not saying starting or training it is going to be easy, but I will say, it will be worth it. Getting to know you, hearing your story and helping you reach your fitness goals would be an honour.  So whatever your reason, let's get together and train.

Georgie
"I trained with Georgie for two years until she left for Canada. Running with her was always fun, varied and I felt fit and energized after every session. Through the sessions I reaped many benefits; weight loss, improved muscle tone, increased stamina and I felt more confident. Initially I was only running for two or three miles, but due to her training program and advice on nutrition I completed the London Marathon without injury. I couldn't have done it without her. Georgie was always so positive and fun to be with and I miss our sessions very much." ~Yolanda
How
Variety, wholesomeness and moderation. I believe these three words can be used to describe exercise, diet and lifestyle. This life balance helps fuel your wellness and happiness. Everyone is unique and has different training requirements and fitness goals. All programs are individually designed to meet each person's needs and goals. 

I also understand that it is not always easy to exercise outside, so I'm happy to work in the comfort of your home. Or, we can hit the local trails near you or me. Glenmore Reservoir, Nose Hill Park and Fish Creek are awesome trail running places.


Whatever your goals, I can provide a training plan that takes into account your lifestyle or family commitments. This is really important because your training plan needs to work for you not me! So, start now and don’t say you'll do it tomorrow, like you said yesterday. Choose your best option below, then get in touch with me to get training.

Personal Training

There are times when a one-to-one class is the only way forward. Whether it's because of the hours you work, you don't have the confidence to get fit within a group or you're training for a marathon or an ultra race. Personal fitness sessions can provide that extra support, motivation and focus needed to reach your goals. Using my CES qualification, I will ensure all exercises are aimed at making you stronger and fitter.

Personal training sessions are obviously more effective when undertaken on a regular basis, ideally weekly. They can also be held in the comfort of your own home. 

All programs are individually designed to meet your goals. Nutrition will also be covered to ensure you eating a balanced diet to meet your training needs.

Do you have what it takes to get a Boston Qualifier?
March 21st, 2017

So you want a Boston Qualifier?     Many clients ask me as a running coach to help them get a Boston qualifier. This is an awesome challenge for runners and often this race is the pinnacle of their running career.   But what does it take to qualify for Boston?   To put it […]

Gratitude – being thankful for getting out there.
March 7th, 2017

OK, it was really cold again running today. My face was freezing and my companion was slow. I actually did not enjoy the run, until I had 2km to go. But it was a long 2km, and my companion was lagging behind, again. As a running coach, I feel I must enjoy my running and […]

Running by feel
February 21st, 2017

Running by feel is a lost art.   Monitoring my runs makes me feel stressed. I constantly check to see how I am performing. I beat myself up if I am slow because I should be running faster. Consequently, I finish my run in a demoralised state and annoyed that I did not do well. […]
