I’ve utilized Michele’s expertise and guidance from my first 50k up to my first 100 mile and everything in between, can’t recommend anyone better to help accomplish your goals. She’ll work with you not only on the running program, but also nutrition, strength, flexibility, and recovery. She lives what she teaches and it’s evident in the athletes that represent Rugged Running across the Country. Since using Michele I’ve pretty much PR’d every distance and just recently completed my first 100 miler under her guidance. The Rugged Running community of athletes are supportive and pretty badass too!

Just have to give a shout out to the best coach a girl could ask for..Michele Yates. She believes in all of us and I proudly rock my rugged running gear knowing that I'm part of a special group. Even when things don't turn out how I plan or when I panic with worry before a race, Michele reminds me I'm worth pushing for big goals instead of being complacent. She rocks!
