Female coaching

We may be a good fit if:

You are a keen and self motivated athlete with a strong desire to improve.

You want to feel confident, energised, and physically and mentally strong.

You have an open mind and willingness to try new approaches to get results.

You want to learn from an experienced coach who really understands what it is like to be a female athlete.

You are prepared to put in the work but want to remain healthy and minimise injuries.

You have some experience and training buddies but need a strategy and someone to help guide you.

Female Coaching and Mentoring

We provide a holistic approach to health, nutrition and performance delivered through lived experience as a female athlete.

Our individualised health and nutrition programs and endurance conditioning training plans are tailied specifically for female athletes. Our sporty ladies love to run, ride, and jump towards reaching their potential!

While many of our ladies are runners (5km- marathon) we also support athletes across a range of sporting interests. Some are interested in participation for health and fitness while others are elite athletes.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Train smart not hard to obtain your goals
  • Understand how your female physiology works and how to get the most out of your genetics
  • Manage your mindset so you can perform to your best as well as overcome any challenges along the way
  • Tailor your sports nutrition to your individual requirements
  • Optimise hormonal balance and better understand and manage symptoms so you can train and perform at your best regardless of your menstrual cycle
  • Resolve injuries and keep niggles and inflammation under control
  • Optimise your overall mental and physical health- we teach you how to maintain good nutrition, gut health, immunity, reduce stress and improve your energy
  • Maintain your fitness across all stages including pregnancy,  menopause and beyond.
We ask for a 6 month minimum committment so we have time to reap the rewards of your hard work and committment! Most of our ladies have been with us for years!

"I have been working with Kate for over three years now and she has helped me not only athletically, but in also in my everyday lifestyle. She is always extremely dedicated, caring and generous with her time and leaves no stone unturned."
Virginia (Commonwealth Games Marathon, World Championships X Country)
“Thanks so much for all of your expert advice. I’m really thrilled to have a new PB at the ripe old age of nearly 49 (gulp!) - I honestly didn’t think I’d be able to improve at this point in my running journey and I’d kind of made my peace with that so it was a lovely little surprise! “
