Could you run faster, better or for longer if you had your own Personal Running Coach?

running-nzRunningNZ Personal Running Plans are personalized programs just for you (involving running/strengthening/stretching). They are designed to get you to the starting line feeling 100% prepared, confident and ready for your chosen event.

No matter if you’re training for a 10km run, a Half-Marathon or even a Sub-3-Hr Full Marathon, the RunningNZ Training Programs make sure you’re doing the right training, the right amount of running, hydrating yourself and can even help with nutritional tips and advice. It’s completely customized to your fitness level, taking into account past or present injuries, background, goals and current life schedule.

A complete training plan from start to finish. No more trying to figure it out by yourself.

Some runners choose a RunningNZ  Personal Running Plan for a detailed injury recovery plan while others just want more well rounded training. Remember, this plan is customized for you.
Beginner runners benefit the most from a custom running plan because it details every run – from the warm-up, running workout, strength exercises, and even pacing guidance. I make sure you understand every single workout in the entire plan.
When I send you your personalized plan, I also include unlimited advice, guidance, tips and motivation. You’ll know exactly how to reach your running goals.


It's all about changing your mind-set to realise that you can actually run distances, and that your body can do it. Jaime believed in me long before I believed in myself. I would not hesitate in recommending Jaime as a running coach; she is amazing and will help you to reach milestones you never thought possible.

Jaime - you are an inspiration. You are not only my coach but also my mentor and friend. Over the last year you have motivated me and helped me reach achievements that I never thought I could do. You go beyond the call of duty .... driving out of your way to help me with my cadence, running with me to show me 'Yes, you can do it' and texting and ringing me to ensure all is going well.

I began my journey with Jaime a year ago, I was feeling unmotivated and needed someone to plan my journey for me. Jaime's been fantastic we live in separate islands of NZ but I have no trouble communicating with her as she does my weekly plans, texts me, phones me and even runs with me when where in the same town together. I am an experienced runner with 18 years of running behind me but having Jaime in my life has been just awesome, she is so motivating and encouraging, she's more than just a coach, she's a friend.

When I finished the New York Marathon, I felt burned out and unmotivated to continue running. As a result, I quit running for over 2 years and, as expected, lost a lot of conditioning during that time. I was out of shape. Eventually, when I decided to start running again, I needed a coach and motivation. Enter Jaime from RunningNZ.My coach, Jaime, literally lit the fire in me to get going again! In little over 3 months, she has taken me from a couch potato to running 21km. With her guidance, I realistically know that I can finish the Rotorua Marathon 2016!I firmly believe that this team at RunningNZ can do the same for you - whether your goal is to take down old PRs, win your age group at a local 5k, or finish a marathon. They’re the best!!!

Jaime's positive attitude and love of running is infectious, when running with her the times goes quickly and she adapts her style to encourage me push me along without feeling pressured or inadequate with my slow pace!

I decided to get help with my running goals after buying several marathon tickets, yet never being able to make it to the start line due to injury. Since following RunningNZ personalized training plans I shaved 14 minutes of my PB in a half marathon and came in 20 minutes faster than my goal time in my first marathon. Jaime and RunningNZ have made me a stronger, fitter and faster runner! Jaime is so full of knowledge and passion for running, your personal goals become her goals. I could never have made these improvements following a 'one size fits all' plan from the Internet and when you sign up for a running plan you get so much more than that. Best money I have ever spent.

Since I met Jaime I have started running again and to my surprise it's been really fun. Jaime and RunningNZ have helped me complete my first 21k run, which I never thought I would be able to do. The best part was Jaime's encouragement and support made it easy.Thanks Jaime 😀

Never trust a skinny chef. So I took this saying into thinking when I looked for a running coach. Why chose someone, then pay them, when they aren't runners themselves or haven't even ran the distance you want them to coach you for. So when I saw Jaime's running site I was intrigued when I saw what she has done and still continues to do. I'm very selective on who I chose to listen to in my life and don't suffer fools easy. With a wife who coaches squash, a young daughter and working shift work I can definitely say Jaime has been awesome for me. I told her from the beginning that she will need to be hard on me and tell me when to slow down. Well in her own way she has done this and in the short time we have been working together I have seen some drastic results in the increase in my speed and endurance. I can’t wait for our ultra marathon journey to continue.
