Thanks for visiting our coaching page. Over the past four years I have competed in all sorts of obstacle course races ranging from un-timed mud runs to ultra marathon distance jungle survival races and more. I offer the most extensive background and understanding of the obstacle racing world today. My coaching brings together over a decade of experience and as well as wilderness emergency medicine and survival training to offer a select group of clients one-on-one completely customized training programs. No matter your needs we can accommodate them. I have studied sports psychology, strength and power training, sports nutrition as well as injury prevention and applied this to my coaching over the past decade. No matter your goals I can help you improve your fitness or reach for that podium finish.
Recently I worked with Spartan Race weight loss sensation Chris Davis on his journey from 696lbs to completing the 2012 Spartan Race Beast in Killington, Vermont. Under my training program he was able to drop from 315lbs to 265 on race day. I continue to consult with Chris on his training program, and life coaching. To me being a coach is more than a training program
How it works?
Our first aim is to assess your goals and create a training program around your needs and desired outcomes. I work with clients to create programs that not only get them to their desired goals but also fit into their lifestyle.
Our coaching services are offered online, unless you are in the Salt Lake City area, and bimonthly Skype or phone conversations are conducted as part of the coaching process. To us coaching is more than just workouts, it’s about forming relationships and breaking down barriers. We start with assessments and goal setting, once we have set the foundation, each client receives a custom training program and can email us with questions at anytime. I offer my coaching services to a limited number of clients in order to ensure each client receives personalized attention.
In addition to our one-on-one services we also offer a 30-day training program. We require an initial 3-month commitment for all clients seeking personalized programs so we can both work to achieve the best outcomes.

“As a coach, Margaret is the ‘complete package’. She has the enthusiasm, patience, energy, knowledge, personality, and experience that are needed to work with athletes.”
- Carrie A.
“It is easy to describe Margaret as an upbeat, encouraging, and knowledgeable coach. Her relation skills with all of the players, and myself especially, are incredible. I jumped at the opportunity to participate at a national level, with Margaret as my coach. Our team went undefeated, undoubtedly because of strong leadership.”
- Kate K.
“My experiences with Margaret have taught me to always believe in myself and keep pushing forward. No Matter where you come from, all you have to do is set your mind to something and go. When things get hard, and success is looking like a long shot, you have to trust in your abilities and commit. She always told me in the start gate to recite my three C’s: calm, cool, collected. I still recite them to this day when I’m in the gate and they continually bring me success and confidence. Margaret’s lessons have carried me very far and thanks to her, I have accomplished goals once thought impossible.”
