After finishing her Master’s degree, Tina began work at a corporate fitness facility, teaching an array of classes, administering exercise tests and assessments, personal training, and presenting seminars on a variety of topics. She has trained athletes on the side independently for the last several years, spoken at Weight Watchers group meetings, and composed freelance articles for Livestrong.com.
With a unique perception, understanding, and analysis of human movement, Tina has trained athletes from first-time 5k finishers to Ironman competitors. She has worked with runners, swimmers, cyclists, triathletes, motocross racers, and lacrosse players. Her solid background in the exercise and movement sciences is irrefutable, and her passion for understanding human movement and performance started while interning and learning from one of the foremost speed and movement coaches in the country: Lee Taft.
Tina began her athletic career as a cross-country athlete in seventh grade, which she continued all through high school, garnering multiple records, wins, and championships, which turned into a short stint as a Division I runner before she embarked on the journey into triathlon. Here she has seen much success – a national championship, a stint on Team USA for the ITU Long-course Triathlon World Championships, a course record or two, and several top finishes. She still competes in running races – road and trail – as well as cycling races, swim meets, and open-water swimming races; all with top finishes. She has been a USA Triathlon All-American, and competed in the 2015 edition of Ironman Lake Placid. Tina was inducted into the Marcus Whitman High School Athletics Hall of Fame, Class of 2015, as the only female inductee in the 2015 induction class, and the youngest individual inductee to date.
Tina knows racing and training inside and out, and not just because she herself does these things, but because she has legitimately and intimately studied the complex anatomical, physiological, and mechanical systems involved with the movement of the human body; the movement in these – and all – sports. You will be hard-pressed to find that anywhere else. She is not going to ‘wow’ you with fancy technology – she doesn’t need it. She will ‘wow’ you with how your body moves, learns, responds, adapts, and ultimately performs.
