About Misfit Mountain Athletics

Science-Driven Coaching for All

Misfit Mountain Athletics helps individuals from all backgrounds cut through the noise of diet culture and fads to find lasting health and wellness. From complete beginners to non-runners, hikers, experienced runners and endurance athletes, Misfit Mountain Athletics provides mindset, nutrition, fitness and/or run coaching to help each client reach their full potential, avoid burnout and enjoy life-long success.

Core values:

Coaching with Compassion: Approaching each individual with compassion. Understanding that coaching with compassion, not coaching for compliance, will lead to radical, sustainable change.

Gentle Nutrition: Learning how to properly fuel your body while also be able to enjoy the cultural, emotional and social aspects of nutrition.

Strength Training:  Learning how to strength train to prevent injury, improve performance and create healthy bones, a healthy heart and a healthy metabolism.

Growth Mindset:  Learning that consistency, self-acceptance and self-compassion will bridge the gap between where you are vs. where you want to be.
