Coach Tami is no stranger to running after successfully serving 27 years in The U.S. Army. Tami has been athletic and played sports since she was six years old. She started running competitively at the age of 11. In Middle School through College, she ran track and field, played basketball and softball. The common denominator was they all involved running. She was a sprinter, until the Army turned her into a distance runner. Tami has completed numerous 5Ks, 10Ks, Great Aloha 8-Milers, Army 10-milers, and a half marathon.
While serving in the military Tami developed a love for health and fitness. In 2008 She received her Personal Fitness Trainer Certification from The American Aerobic Association International and International Sports Medicine Association (AAAI/ISMA). She developed a passion for training youth and what she affectionately calls “The Mature Adult” population. After sustaining some injuries in the military, she was unable to run longer distances and started attending indoor cycling classes. She later developed a love for indoor cycling and in 2018 received her Spinning Instructor Certification from Mad Dogg Athletics, Inc. Having experienced multiple injuries due to training incorrectly and lack of knowledge, Tami desires to help others become better athletes in their respective sport and encourage all ages to keep moving healthier and more efficiently from the ground up.
