I help goal-driven women ditch weight loss struggles by guiding them in a unique weight loss and running program that improves their weight loss methods and transforms them into the fit, confident athlete they have inside.
If you want to lose unwanted fat and feel great becoming the best runner you can be, let’s chat.
Hi, I’m Coach Amie… and this before/after pic is ME!
Before I was a pro running and weight loss coach, I had fallen into a period of overworking myself, putting everyone else’s needs before my own, and despite consistently trying to diet, I couldn’t lose the weight.
I also went through a series of medical misdiagnoses that led to tons of medications, with side effects so harmful I had to stop running due to cardiac consequences.
The medications shut down my metabolism and caused my weight to spiral even more out of control.
My health was crumbling. I was severely fatigued, became depressed, and was in the worst shape of my entire life.
The “Before” picture wasn’t even at my heaviest as I would run away from the camera. Before running another ultramarathon, the “After” photo was taken at age 43.
I am not even sure how much I lost in total – probably around 65 lbs – I stopped weighing myself because it was depressing.
If you avoid mirrors… your closet is cluttered with clothes that no longer fit, but you can’t donate… If you outwardly smile but feel uncomfortable with how you look and feel… If you fear or experience judgment by others… if you run and know you could do and feel better… I get you 100%.
But at one point, I had enough—the pain of going on as I was outweighed anything else.
This is something you have to do for YOU.
I said NO MORE and got off all the meds. But then… I had to lose the weight just like anyone else – except starting with almost zero metabolism due to the medications.
To top it off, I had experienced trauma and, as a result, realized I had also been using the weight to hide away from the world.
It took a long time to research and learn that I had to holistically reach my weight and running goals: using a big picture view.
This is why simply going on a one-size-fits-all diet fails because losing weight involves many factors.
It inspired me to train as a professional coach and develop The Breakthrough Method to help others do it.
IT FELT GREAT TO RELEASE THE REAL ME when I found out how to do it, and you can feel this way too!
If I can do it – after all that, I can guide you in this same Method to lose weight and be healthier too.
When you lose weight, you gain so much LIFE!
I also noticed that I must have a gift for this because even before I was professionally trained and developed this Method, I helped two former roommates lose 60+ and 100-lbs each.
One is now a distance runner, and the other became a fitness instructor.
Remember: You become like those you choose to associate with! Are you ready?
You can get the strategies that help you lose weight for good and become the fit, high-performing runner you envision.
Working with an experienced weight loss and running coach is your ultimate tool to achieve your goals.
Let me guide you through an easy-to-follow, step-by-step holistic weight-loss program that works!
Join those who have already transformed themselves into strong, lean, and fit runners.
With this program, women have lost their unwanted weight, even after previous failed attempts, and are running better than ever.
Partnering with a professional weight loss and running coach for 12 solid weeks, you’ll get weekly 1:1 meetings at your convenience to keep you on track toward your goal.
During these meetings, you’ll set clear, actionable plans and know exactly how you will achieve them.
This isn’t about a one-size-fits-all diet but instead focuses on improving your weight loss alongside your whole health and wellness.
So, in addition to weight loss, you’ll get to enhance your inner self-confidence, mindset, lifestyle, health habits, and more.
And, you’ll get to run better as well.
It’s time to get actual life-changing results!
You may have tried a lot of fixes and found that they don’t stick or aren’t maintainable.
You may have tried to shed the weight with running with success, but it wasn’t sustainable for the long term.
Or you aren’t getting the results you wanted. You may find it hard to stay motivated and on track.
Maybe you want to return to the athlete you used to be and want to lose the average 30-40+ pounds gained during Covid or other lifestyle changes.
Perhaps you can picture your transformation into the person you want to be when you lose the weight so you can go on to reach a running goal like a half-, full-, or ultra-marathon.
With your coach, you can leave the struggles behind and get help with what it takes for YOU to lose weight for good and be a high-performing, energetic runner.
You get guided through a step-by-step, personalized, easy-to-follow program that gets you to where you want to be, where your positive changes stay.
You’ll work with an expert with knowledge of weight loss, running, health, mind-body principles, and easily achievable goals so that the new, optimized lifestyle that you get from The Breakthrough Method brings out the real you.
The Breakthrough Method is different because it’s not just about a number on the scale or some crash diet that makes you feel bad.
Instead, we look at your life holistically and where you are in your running journey so you can lose weight, be healthier and reach your goals.
Therefore, you may also improve other problems that contribute to weight loss and running woes, such as stress/mental strain, nutrition issues, or sleep problems.
So more than just weight loss – YOU get healthier, and your running improves as well.
The Method is easy to understand, and for your transformation, you get all of this:
Step 1: Schedule your free consultation so you can feel motivated, get clarification on your goals, and discover how you can make progress.
During your initial 20-minute session, you can learn about your best options and get all of your questions answered so you can feel confident knowing precisely what to do.
Step 2. Once you start the program, you’ll get an extensive baseline evaluation so you can feel empowered to take action on your goals.
This is all about YOU – examining the big picture of your life – right now.
Through this, you’ll discover things like: What is YOUR personal “why” that can help drive your weight loss goal to success? What could stop you from reaching your goals?
Your evaluation is available securely and privately online at your convenience.
Step 3: You’ll then get an in-depth, 60-90 minute focused session in which we’ll discuss your baseline evaluation, and you’ll get your personalized plan, so you can see your path forward and feel excited to head toward your success.
I’ll guide you in visualizing YOU at your BEST into a written, motivating description.
Plus, you’ll get clear, realistic milestones with an actionable plan so you can move forward toward it.
Let’s eliminate “can’t” and focus on “can”!
Step 4. I’ll work with you week-by-week to set goals and fundamental, concrete strategies so you can feel confident, see your progress and discover what works for YOU.
You’ll get your blueprint for success – and be held accountable for following your personalized plan so you can feel motivated to develop the habits that will get you to your goals.
Your 1:1 sessions are by your choice of a phone call or videoconference so that you can save more time.
I’ll check in on your progress so you’ll always have accountability and your questions answered.
I’ll help you set new milestones as you reach your goals and further customize your personalized strategy to lose weight, be at your healthiest, and feel and run your best.
By the end of the 12-week program, you can lose excess weight and enhance your self-confidence in your ability to reach your goals.
Instead of trying random things that don’t stick, you will also have a detailed, written, and practiced weight loss strategy that works for you and your life.
You will have a new holistically healthy lifestyle that supports your goals and running achievements, so in addition to weight loss, you can go from demotivated to feeling energized.

Despite being 39, Steph is now living her Ideal Vision and is back to what she weighed in her 20's. While losing weight, she also attained more self-confidence and mental strength.
Before starting The Breakthrough Method with me, she went to a run club and felt self-conscious that she was the slowest one.
People had to keep stopping and waiting for her, so she didn't go back.
After The Breakthrough Method, she passes those same runners in races, breaks PR's, and will soon run her own Boston Qualifier.
She says:"I had been in an overweight category for over a decade. My biggest fear was that I was going to sabotage my health and marathon PR goals if I continued to remain overweight.
Please be aware: “coaching” is an unregulated business, so some people call themselves coaches by making commissions selling you products, supplements, or extreme diets that you don’t need or that may be unsafe for you as a runner – or even your life.
Or through pushing one-size-fits-all exercise programs that don’t work for you, or diet methods that don’t work for runners, or a woman’s metabolic needs.
Instead, in The Breakthrough Method, you’ll get the support, guidance, and accountability you need so you can reach your goals and improve holistically for the long run.
You get a program geared toward achieving your goals through evidence-based, proven principles.
Working with a professional who knows all about run training paired with weight loss, you can get The Breakthrough Method on its own or hand-in-hand with Private Run Coaching or a Training Group for a comprehensive total package.
Therefore, you are not asked to buy supplements or use diets or workout programs that may not be right for you or your running.
The techniques are derived from the gold standard of professional coaching with a weight-loss focus, combined with extensive knowledge of running so you get optimal results.
Maurina got her and her child away from an abusive partner along with a divorce, but she had to start her life over entirely.
She felt that her weight loss and running were empowering.
You can also achieve a holistic, balanced, healthy lifestyle that has also included benefits such as:
You get a whole-person-centered approach that listens to you and works with you to get the motivation, guidance, and accountability you need to succeed and achieve your personal goals.
You will not find unrealistic promises in this program, but you will get strategies that work for you to achieve your goals long-term.
You can gain the holistic, healthy body and lifestyle that gets you your best running and life.
Everyone who has gone through the program with me has lost weight! (I will rewrite this if it ever changes, but I don’t think it will 😉 )
People say that they wish they would have started this a long time ago, but there is a saying that goes… “The best time to plant a tree was ten years ago… the next best time is NOW!”
Only you can decide where you will be in just 12 short weeks from now!

Sharee had lost over 100-lbs in the past but had gone through profound life changes and setbacks, leading to re-gain.
It affected her entire life; plus, her former weight loss methods no longer seemed to work for her, and she was feeling demotivated.
We didn’t use the scale because she felt she got obsessed with it, so instead, her initial goal (that she reached) was to fit into a favorite pair of jeans and wear them out proudly.
She feels motivated by her ideal vision to reach her ideal weight, ran her first 10K in years, and is continuing her training to run her first marathon!
This program will discover the strategies that work for you, personally, to lose weight.
Once you unlock the “secret” of what works for you, you can continue to lose any amount of weight that gets you to your ideal weight, size, or personal target.
By the end of the 12-weeks, you will have your strategy mapped out, which saves you money as you are not paying for a program you are reliant on for the rest of your life.
Although no weight loss program can guarantee results, the Breakthrough Method works for those who work The Method… During the 12-week program, clients have lost that stubborn last 5-10 lbs up to 40-lbs and have continued to lose weight with their customized strategies after the program ended.
Clients entering into the program usually have 30-40+ pounds to lose and are ready to commit to becoming the person they want to be.
This program works best for beginning or returning runners or current runners in their off-season who aren’t in the middle of seriously training for a race.
So while runners of any level can benefit from this program, it works best if you enjoy running.
Because let’s be honest, how much commitment will you have to this program if you know that running isn’t for you?
While long-distance runners have found this has worked for them to get weight loss when nothing else has, many runners find this program helps them lose weight, stick to their new running programs, and find motivational strategies to make their running and nutritional habits last.
Because in addition to weight loss and improved running – it benefits your health! And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want better health?
Also, I usually only offer personal online run coaching to those with a marathon or ultra goal.
However, as an added benefit, I allow runners of any level who are being coached in the Running + Weight Loss Program to enter into Private Run Coaching to get more structured running guidance and that extra push they may need.
Yes, we’ve also seen others out there who call themselves a coach just because they sell supplements.
We do not sell or push supplements, shakes, pills, or fad diets of any type.
And, I’d be suspicious of anyone who tried those methods. Just because those supplements or that extreme diet plan may (or may not!) have worked for them does not mean it will work for you and may even be dangerous.
Some supplements also do not work well for running because many have dangerous cardiovascular side effects that do not work well with exercise.
If a supplement or diet plan worked for everybody, everyone would have bought it by now.
Instead, The Breakthrough Method for weight loss is a program where you get to work with a Nationally Certified, experienced professional coach to discover the blueprint of what works for YOU, your running, and your lifestyle.
A saying coined by endurance athlete and women’s health researcher Dr. Stacey Sims says, “Women are not small men.”
Women can have very different needs and weight loss strategies than a man. Our hormone systems, metabolisms, and response to exercise are not the same.
This is why fad diets can also be more dangerous for women. Many of the studies on weight loss and endurance – have been done on men in their 20s!
So if a man tries to fit you into a program that worked for him or generically brings up studies that say a specific diet or way of working out should work for you – I’d take that with a grain of salt.
We’ve all seen the guys who cut creamer from their coffee or similar and lost weight and didn’t get why it didn’t work for us.
Or maybe you’ve felt the pull of emotional eating, or have gotten to certain times of the month (or your life) where going running feels like you’ve hit a brick wall, and they can’t understand… and let’s be honest, who wants to explain things like that to a male coach anyway.
I specialize in helping women lose weight and excel at running not only because I have been there – but because, through experience, I know that you need that type of specialization to get actual results.
I encourage you to try it on your own if you haven’t – you may succeed!
However, I’m guessing that you may have already tried it yourself, or you wouldn’t be here right now.
Many also think they know what they need to do. But if that worked for you, let’s be honest, it would be working right now.
Things won’t change until you make your life and your health a priority and take the first step to change them.
Set up your free consultation today, and let’s move forward.
Step 1, realize that nothing changes until you prioritize yourself and take action.
And I can’t think of anything more important than your health and wellbeing – can you?
In reality, there is no perfect time to do anything. And, should taking care of yourself depend on if something else is going on or not?
Because how can you be a role model or give your best to others if you are not at your best?
Honestly, waiting for something to change is like seeing if a fairy will show up and wave a wand and give you your new life.
There will always be something else going on; the difference is when you make a stand and decide that It’s time to be proactive.
Remember that not making a choice is still a choice – the only failure is when we fail to get up and try.
Due to the unique nature of this program, space is always limited. So you have to take your shot when it’s there and decide that it’s time to invest in yourself and that YOUR TIME IS NOW.
