My guest will be Mindy Solkin. Mindy is founder, owner and head coach of The Running Center LLC. She began her coaching career in 1992 and since then has coached over 12,000 runners helping them to achieve their goals whether it is running their first mile or pursuing their personal best in the marathon. Mindy is certified by USA Track & Field as a running coach, (with Level 3 education) and by the American Council on Exercise as a personal trainer. Her innovative and personalized training programs for groups and private clients combine a keen understanding of both the sport of running and the principles of health and fitness.
In 1999 Mindy founded The Running Center from a home-based office and in 2006 she fulfilled her dream and opened New York City’s first and only training studio for runners. With her 22 years of experience, she expanded her services to include her signature Runditioning™ classes, running clinics, heart rate monitor testing and corporate wellness programs. She is an original, as she has successfully combined her knowledge of both the running world and the fitness world to develop runners into all-around healthy individuals.
Once a frequent age-group award winner running in the top 5% to 10% of the field, she has dedicated herself to her runners and the running community-at-large, becoming a knowledgeable resource to a generation of runners. As one of the country’s leading running coaches, she has coached runners near and far to cross the finish lines of marathons as well as shorter distances in Anchorage, Berlin, Bermuda, Boston, Chicago, Dublin, London, New York City, Paris, Prague, San Diego and Vancouver.
