Hi, I am Tina and I started Run with Tina in 2009. Before that, I worked in marketing for 12 years but for the longest time, I had wanted to become a fitness instructor so when I was out of work, in 2009, that was a perfect time for me to re-train and try something new!
Since then, Run with Tina has kept me busy. I started alone, doing classes locally but very soon there was so much demand I had to start hiring instructors in order to be able to meet the need.
It has been a journey of some incredible ups and a few lows – what goes up must come down – I have learnt so much about the industry, people, business and myself.
I am proud of the company I’ve built and, most of all, the impact it has had on women’s lives – when I started, I thought I was just teaching women how to run so they can keep fit, but it turns out these classes change people’s lives by boosting their confidence and self-esteem, helping them believe in themselves, feel good about themselves and make lifelong special friends!
We’ve survived some difficult times, when I was going through personal difficulties, the pandemic, and now the cost of living crisis! My daughter was born a year after I started Run with Tina and since she was 2 years old I’ve been a single mother and I have even managed to homeschool her for several years!
Now, in 2023, after a few quiet and restful years, I’m ready to start working hard on Run with Tina again. We have some great online courses, I am thoroughly enjoying the weight loss and mindset coaching work I do, but above all that, I’m super excited to be bringing in-person classes back this spring!
I also offer mentoring and business support services to businesses in the fitness and wellness industries – so if you’re a fitness instructor or another wellness/health professional who wants to grow their business, please read more info below and get in touch!
