"This was my first half marathon, I completed it in 2:35:44. We had extreme heat yesterday (Green Bay, WI -- Cellcom Marathon) and they actually canceled the race just after I finished b/c of the heat. Your program was awesome. I loved it! Your program was was inspiring...I loved the videos each week. Thanks for the workouts, the advice, the pep talks....all were great."
-Davina, App user in Wisconsin

"Simply put, Trish transformed my life. Her "whole body" (physical/mental/emotional) approach to training resulted in changes at the core level of my being...AND the most amazing thing is, it did result in a total lifestyle change. Trish taught me more in six months than I was able to learn in almost 51 years of "working out." Most of all, she taught me I was responsible for me and that all things are truly possible for one who believes it is..."

"With Trish's help, I have lost 50 pounds and I don't know how many inches. The 50 pounds was my interim goal. Thanks to Trish, I believe she has given me tools imparted enough knowledge so that I can continue marching towards my final goal."

Customer Reviews

Great App!

I just ran 10 miles! I never thought those words would be in my vocabulary. I don't have a runners body, I don't have that "thing" runners have. I am an over weight stay at home mom who, with the support of Trainer Trish, am ready to run my first half! I looked at other plans and chose this one because aside from the weekly long run the other runs were not very long and I could do them with a jogging stroller. I did read one review that mentioned needing to be able to run 3 miles for your first week. Trish does give you a written beginner 5k plan and stresses there is no shame in walking. As a beginner runner, I would have liked to see some guidance on stretching, like she gives for core strengthening, but it was easy to find another app for that. This is a great app that offers sound advice as well as lots if motivation!

Thrilled with My Results

I can honestly say I have never been more surprised by the results of a training program. This app not only helped my prepare for my first half marathon, it helped me far exceed my goals. The app is easy to use and the videos are a great bonus to keep you motivated and engaged. I began training with 12-weeks to go before my first half marathon and only able to run about 6 miles at a time with a 9:30 pace. Each week the runs got longer but also faster and easier. The weekly runs definitely helped prepare for the long weekend runs. I ran my first half with a time of 1:44:38 and felt great! I would recommend this app to anyone who is trying to prepare for an upcoming race!!

Awesome app

If you have run 5k's and are ready for your first half marathon this app is great. I use to just run based on how I feel and never improved that way. I am in my third week of the program and have already seen my mile split times improve dramatically just by following the program. Trish is great at letting you know what to expect and the best thing is if you have a question simply email her and she gets back in touch within a day. I haven't had any issues with the videos everything has worked great and now there are programs for 5k and 10k as well for those who find the half marathon to challenging. Love the app looking forward to finishing my first half marathon.
