“We are not interested in being like everyone else. We are here to wake up and shake up the world of endurance sports”- Coach BJ
BJ: Triathlon and Run Coach
Coach “Beej” has a zeal for life that is infectious and a deep passion for serving others to achieve their greatest dreams. He works one-on-one with his athletes to empower them to be an active participant in their process of physical and mental growth. When he’s not swimming, biking or running, he’s found in the yoga studio standing on his head, making room to answer life’s epic questions.
BJ is a 15x Ironman triathlete, Ironman 70.3 World Championship and Boston Marathon qualifier, personal trainer, triathlon and running coach with major street cred. He is a 200-hr Live Love Teach trained yoga instructor and certified in Plant-Based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies.

She has been featured in Triathlete Magazine, Men’s Journal, Elephant Journal, Massage Magazine, and TriZone, as well as many blogs and podcasts for her expertise in holistic health and nutrition.
LIZ: Run Coach
Coach Liz (aka Running on Venti) is a seeker who loves adventure. She has been lacing up her running shoes for over 40 years and has been known to run 4 ultras in 8 weeks. Although she loved to run, she didn’t run in high school. However, after moving to Boston in the mid 90’s she ran for the Boston Athletic Association and doesn’t mind telling you she placed 7th Female overall in an 8k race where she won $25.
Every step and mile that Coach Liz has run has brought her here. She has been coaching adult athletes for over 3 years, from those who want to be able to run a mile to the marathon. She is also in her 4th year as an Assistant Running Coach at Parker Charter School in MA. She coaches all 3 seasons which include XC, Indoor and Outdoor Track. She loves sharing her #lizdom with not only her adult athletes but with the kids she coaches. Those who know her are not surprised she is a coach. It’s where she feels most aligned.
Most days you can find Coach Liz managing her training (which she gets from Coach Bj) and her multi-passionate life outside of Boston, MA with her husband and 2 daughters, 2 goldies Thor & GG, and 3 cats.
