Hello and welcome to Perkins Coaching!
I am Ruth Perkins and I offer personalized run coaching through individualized training plans, private run coaching sessions, and running-specific strength and mobility coaching. I am committed to providing proven scientifically sound coaching that is tailored to each athlete's ability and lifestyle needs. I coach athletes of all ages and ability levels. If you are looking for a running coach who is knowledgeable and passionate about helping you achieve your running and racing goals, look no further. Perkins Coaching has just what you need!
Perkins Coaching was created in 2014 after I had already spent well over a decade in the Health and Wellness industry as a personal trainer and health coach. Perkins Coaching was born out of my desire to create an opportunity for well established and competitive runners like myself to take their running ability from good to great. As a lifelong competitive distance runner, I knew how hard it was to find a private running coach as well as other similarly abled runners to train with. I've been honored to have had an incredible running career racing with the best of the best all over the United States and beyond and I am thrilled to be a part of helping other runners fulfill their running dreams as well.
I earned my BS in Exercise Science from Seattle Pacifc University in 2003, became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) in 2006, and became USATF Level 1 certified in 2013. With a desire to always learn and grow, I take regular continuing education courses to keep my knowledge current and my coaching techniques on the cutting edge. Passion, experience and knowledge come together to create Perkins Coaching.
