RRCA Certified Running Coach and NASM Certified Personal Trainer
Get fit. Get fast. Sweat out chemo. Chase your kid. Train for life.
Welcome to Tracey Hecht Coaching! A little bit about me...
I have been obsessed with sports and fitness since I could walk. I got my Bachelor's Degree in Athletic Training from the University of Pittsburgh and passed the National Board Exam in 2006 to become a Certified Athletic Trainer. I then got my Master's Degree in Exercise Science with a concentration in Exercise, Nutrition, and Eating Behavior in 2008 from the George Washington University. I went on to work in sports medicine at 3 different Division 1 universities and then transitioned into the clinical setting in 2014. I also have my RRCA Level 1 Running Coach certification, my NASM Certified Personal Trainer certification, and my AFAA Group Fitness Instructor certification.
I've been passionate about running for over 10 years. I ran my first half marathon in 2011 and my first full marathon in 2012. I get great joy from running and see it as a form of meditation as well as a triumph when I hit a goal. I want to help you achieve your goals, be it a particular race, pace, or just to commit to activity. I love helping people take their first step towards running, or their millionth. After having my first child in November 2017, I learned a whole new side of running. I now do most of my runs with at least one, if not both (second child born in August 2019), of my kids in the running stroller! I am especially interested in helping other moms who are looking to start their fitness journey or get back into it. Additionally, after beating stage 3 breast cancer in 2020/2021 and staying active throughout treatment, I have a new passion for helping breast cancer previvors, patients, thrivers, and survivors maintain or get back into a running or fitness routine. No matter who my client is and what the goal is, I want to develop a running and/or strength plan for you that is fun but also challenging and rewarding.
When working with me (see pricing below), you will get a custom running plan tailored to your skill level and goals; communication and workouts via Final Surge, e-mail, phone, and in person (if geographically appropriate); advice on how to balance running and a healthy lifestyle with the rest of your life; and me as an occasional running buddy (again, if geographically appropriate)! Moms, you are welcome (and encouraged!) to bring your junior running buddies in their stroller on your runs!
