Alison Heilig — Endurance Coach, Fitness Trainer & Yoga TeacherRRCA_Cert_Coach_logo


When you first meet Coach Alison in person, the secrets to her coaching success are obvious: undeniable passion and infectious enthusiasm. She works with aspiring and established athletes of all ages and abilities – runners, triathletes, obstacle course racers, even entire obstacle course race teams.

Her exceptional track record for keeping athletes healthy, focused, and motivated is due in large part to her firm commitment to building durable athletes by providing a wealth of knowledge on proper form, injury prevention, overall strength and conditioning, mobility, stability, quality movement patterns, power and speed development.IMG_4564
