Risk of Injury
"I L.O.V.E. my running coach, Jennifer Kamm Siegrist, she is the most encouraging, energetic, and consistent runner I have ever ran with. I am always nervous to take on new challenges... the unknown is scary. But she has taken me to the trails, pushed me to run hills in the +100 degree heat." ~Donna
Ugh, my pace is slow
You're running, running, and running, yet your pace is not getting better. You've tried running negative splits, breathing better, etc. I'm here to tell you there's one area all us runners tend to neglect or completely ignore... Read on.
Ouch, I'm injured... Again
You're eating better, stretching, and following your training plan to a 'T', yet you get injured. One area of our physique we tend to overlook is the strength of our core.
I need to run more miles
Yep, I've been there. I'm not getting faster, so thinking that running 100 miles per week was not enough. Next thing you know, I'm getting fatigued sooner, not eating entirely right, and not having any fun doing the training.
RUNNING FASTER IS ABOUT BUILDING STRENGTH
Benefits of Strength Training

Correct muscle imbalances
Increase efficiency of your running biomechanics
Improved running performance
Improved form and pace
PROPER FORM AND GUIDANCE
Do you know which exercises benefit runners the most?
With so many strength training options out there, it can be confusing to determine what routine or coach to follow. Moreover, which routine is best suited for runners? Sadly, most strength training routines are NOT specific to runners.
This is why I created RUN FASTER STRONGER. With my nearly 25 years of endurance running experience, running coach and Certified Personal Trainer background, I designed an on-going, flexible program.
My running-centric, strength training workouts are designed to help you build strength, reduce the risk of injury, and ultimately run faster.

WHY HAVE A RUNNING COACH
"I've coached hundreds to become better runners, and I can help you!"
Without a coach, you are prone to do a number of things, i.e. not run the mileage, fudge the miles. I will help you stay on track and keep you progressing towards your goal.
How often do you think about your running goals, yet never to get started or it fizzles out. In many cases, it is a matter of confidence. I can help you stay the course and battle through those emotions.
Don't get me wrong, action is the most important piece of any goal, but without proper planning or guidance, you are sure to get injured or fall short of the finish line... I want to get you across the line.
With a Garmin, for instance, you can get all kinds of running-related information. However, how do you know what that all means? This is where I come in. I will help you understand your progress and provide feedback to help you through.
Every Athlete Needs a Coach
Having a coach will help you get to where you want to be, though YOU are still required to put in the effort. Don't let anyone tell you going it alone is better... You're still required to run the mileage, you simply need some direction.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Jennifer is so encouraging. She is very enthusiastic and makes the runs fun with her positive attitude. I have more confidence that I will be able to hit my 1/2 marathon goal training with her. ~Karen

MEET COACH JEN
Endurance Runner, Running Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, Health Coach, and Certified Nutritionist
I'm all about fitness! In addition to a personal training routine, I've been an endurance runner nearly 25 years. To-date, I have completed 24 Marathons, 88 Half Marathons, 3 Ultra's and hundreds of distances between. Professionally, I started Get Fit With Jen in 2008 to help others become the best versions of themselves. I blend my passion and knowledge of fitness into coaching all ages and abilities, from the person looking to get back into shape, the beginner runner to finish their first 5K, to the veteran runner in setting an ultra PR! When not working-out, running, or coaching, I love travel, reading, and a good boot camp! I reside in Dallas, Texas with my husband and daughter.
"Hey Jen! Just wanted to thank you for starting up this 90- day run challenge! This has been the best running plan for me ever. I am so motivated and I have been really sticking to it. I’m already thinking ahead to the next phase and a new plan after this one is up. I am enjoying running more than I ever have and I look forward to my running days instead of dreading them." ~Kim
