The JM Coaching Mission

Help people discover how they can get the most out of themselves in a healthy and sustainable way, preventing over training and ensure training is fun and enjoyable!

As well as the above my personal goal is to be the best athlete that I can be so that others are inspired to push to their own limits, whilst creating part time work opportunities for my teammates to share their experience with other runners and earn an income to support their own athletic dreams.
