Having worked with athletes of all ages and abilities, Tammy’s passion is in designing and delivering high quality training that meets her clients at their personal fitness level. Contagiously optimistic, Tammy finds a careful balance of being her athlete’s biggest cheerleader while still holding them to high but achievable standards. Completing her college thesis (now over 30 years ago (!)) on the importance of mental imagery in free-throw shooting, Tammy knows a prepared mind is equally, if not more, important to a prepared body.
Tammy has spent the last 30 years as coach and physical education teacher. A competitive middle-distance runner, Tammy found running when she hung up her high school basketball shoes. A runner from the days before the internet, GPS watches, and energy gels existed, she is a pure lover of the sport and competition. Having recently retired from teaching, Tammy co-founded Fit Kids Fit Future; a company dedicated to improving health and physical education curricula in schools by providing students foundations for lifelong fitness, mobility, healthy habits, and goal setting. Tammy’s coaching experience ranges from personal training to coaching at the high school and the collegiate levels. At the collegiate level, she has worked as an assistant cross-country coach (Utica College, NY) as well as an assistant soccer coach (Hamilton College, Colgate University). She has also led multiple sigh school teams to conference and sectional championships in both basketball and soccer. A native of Upstate NY, Tammy has developed and led a training program which has coached over 100 runners, of varying athletic backgrounds and goals, to compete in the Utica Boilermaker 15K, the largest 15K in the world.
