Running Consulting

Regardless of age or experience, you will enhance your ability with a well devised running plan. When following a specific plan, we procrastinate less; our mood is enhanced; we feel more in control and productivity improves. 


Why Hire a Running Coach?

My job as your running coach is to provide you with a plan that will succeed. Training programs may be designed to purely improve fitness, or you may have a desire to get a new personal record (PR). Together, we can create a plan that takes your daily time constraints into consideration, including work schedules and family commitments. I want running to fit into your current life in a comfortable, enjoyable, fulfilling way! I look forward to getting to know you.

Running Coach

Meet our Running Coach, Lisa Patton. Here's a little bit about Lisa! 

Like many of you, I am a busy wife and mother with a desire to remain healthy spiritually, emotionally, and physically.  For me, strength training, running, and accountability play vital roles in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. 

I grew up competing on the high school and college level in basketball, track, and cross country. After graduating, I coached varsity basketball and cross-country. I also led group fitness classes in Augusta, GA.  I love encouraging others to reach their fitness goals.  After our move to Atlanta, I devoted my time to my growing family of 4 children and began homeschooling.  During this time I also grew my knowledge as a runner.  I began racing and running with several groups in Atlanta.   

Soon after our move to Athens, I began working one on one with other women helping them meet their running and fitness goals.  I earned my level 1 Healthy Running Coach Certificate as well as completingmy Personal Trainer Certification. I currently write personalized training plans and encourage others to meet their running and fitness goals. I also work one on one and in group settings at TransFit Athens discussing running fundamentals and specific strength training for healthy and successful running.
