Anna-Marie is an awesome coach! She takes a holistic approach to training that involves building strength and flexibility as well as improving running economy. The program is supplemented by practices that help athletes increase their awareness, such as breathwork. The running regimen itself is always engaging and interesting, complete with drills and footwork, and a focus on correct posture ~ Carrie
Anna-Marie successfully coached me to a top half finish at the Marathon Des Sables in 2022. I really appreciated her coaching style as it in introducing a mix of Yoga, Strength work and different types of running all delivered weekly through training peaks. I would highly recommend Anna-Marie for coaching for all types of running and endurance events from running to Ironman type events. Thank you again for getting me through the MDS event ~ Olly
Working with Anna-Marie definitely took my abilities to the next level. Although we started working together during a challenging time in the running world (ALL of the races being cancelled), with RFM coaching I was able to improve my coordination, build up core strength, and best my 5k time. Anna-Marie was also flexible and responsive - always ensuring that I was happy and healthy during training, and adapting to sudden changes in plan ~ Michelle
I booked Anna Marie for an online training evaluation for my brother for his 40th birthday. My brother has recently got into Ultra Running and is doing really well - I thought it would be nice for him to get some structured advice from an expert. The process was seamless and Anna Marie was really flexible with arranging the training and the feedback that I got from my brother was great - really sound advice and some things he would never have thought of. He loved it. I would highly recommend ~ Sarah Jane
