Welcome to GetRunning Coaching. Having you fully understand running is our goal and we aim to share our years of knowledge and the latest research in order to get you there.
Our specialised coaching gives you that extra edge with a personalised plan just for you. We use pace and heart rate monitoring to bring you the best possible outcome for you and your chosen event. Whether you’re new to running or a seasoned amateur, we are able to tailor a program to conveniently fit you and your busy schedule.
We use online Training Peaks software which allows direct and focused feedback on how your running is progressing. We prefer to work with Garmin running technology, which allows direct syncing of data and instant feedback. Above all we make everything simple, easy and digestible. Leave the science up to us; all you need to do is turn up. We have the facilities and technology right here at the GetRunning Studio!

Anita recently moved to Auckland from Christchurch, and has 3 and a half years experience as a personal trainer and 14 years as a runner. Her roots started in dance at an early age, and she has done ballet and other forms of dance for over 17 years. This led her to complete a dance degree in contemporary dance, giving her an in-depth understanding of the dancer's body. Upon completion she studied to be a primary teacher. But after 2 years of teaching she decided to follow her true passion and retrained as a personal trainer. She feels blessed every day now to do a job that she loves!
Anita taught herself to run at 18 with much the same approach she took to learning to drink coffee - persistence and determination - both paid off! But her real love for running started when she completed her first half marathon in 2008. Over the course of 14 half marathons and two full marathons Anita feels that she has learned many things the hard way, and this gives her the determination to prevent others making the same mistakes. This year she is looking forward to completing the Kepler Challenge - an intimidating goal, but something she is approaching much more as an 'epic adventure' and an experience to learn from, rather than wanting to be an ultra marathoner!
With her move to Auckland from Christchurch she will be restarting her personal training business in Auckland and in her spare time you'll find her walking or running with her border collie Lulu, going to markets and checking out new coffee and food haunts.
Tim turned down a glamorous career as a public servant in Wellington to return to university and study Sport & Recreation, his passion. Tim is now a personal trainer, specialising in strength for runners. He is also doing post-graduate Sport and Exercise Science part-time. Tim completed his first marathon, the Legend in a time of 4:38:32. He was inspired to enter after seeing the GetRunning athletes working so hard in training and thoroughly enjoying their running! Tim has also completed several half marathons, with a best time of 1:32:11, which he expects to improve.
Tim loves helping all the GR runners reach their running goals. This might be through strength work, mobility exercises, pacing or determining whether or not to eat pizza after a long run. Tim is responsible for the GR chalk marks you see across Auckland, directing runners around the Saturday long run course. He also runs the Tuesday Run Strength & Mobility sessions, which are focused specifically on strength and mobility for runners and are guaranteed to get you working hard.
When he’s not involved in running or training, Tim follows the Warriors, the Phoenix, and any New Zealand team beating Australia!
Natalie is our popular Pilates instructor. Her start with GetRunning began back in 2008 as one of our runners, but she soon began to take sessions for us.
Natalie graduated from AUT with a Bachelor of Health Science Physiotherapy at the end of 2010 and she now works at SportsLab as a Physiotherapist.

Natalie has a passion for running and has competed in many on-road and off-road half marathons. Natalie has a 13 year dancing history and has competed at a national level with a focus on ballet, jazz and contemporary dance. This has allowed Natalie to develop an indepth knowledge and understanding of the biomechanics of a dancer. In her spare time she also enjoys wakeboarding, surfing, fishing, art and landscape/abstract painting.
Rachel is a qualified yoga teacher. She’s also a passionate marathoner, a wellbeing columnist (for two NZ magazines and freelances for newspapers), she’s a health food creator and the director of http://inspiredhealth.co.nz/.
Rachel teaches yoga at a few studios (and works with some elite runners) but she has a soft spot for teaching at GetRunning because it blends two of her passions: running and yoga. She has run 11 marathons (plus a string of half-marathons) and so she knows first-hand how yoga can aid running. Some benefits include: increasing range of mobility and strength, it’s restorative for the body and mind and an injury prevention tool. It’s also great for body awareness, incorporates breathe work and there’s relaxing meditation always at the end of a session. Ultimately, it’s fun. She’ll cater to any level.
She’s also an ambassador for the Achilles NZ Charity, which helps disabled Kiwi athletes to participate in running events. She has guided disabled athletes through a few marathons and half-marathons.
With a marathoning Mum (Kiri) and Grandad, Zane is definitely destined for the road one day!
Zane is our Support Station Manager extraordinaire. He has been running the support stations out there for our runners for a number of years, and making sure that our runners get through their long Saturday runs comfortably. Currently a Year 13 student at Westlake Boys, he is developing his own passion for sports and this year he's studying Bio and PE. He has played soccer, both indoor and outdoor, for a number of years, and is a defender not to be messed with. He's also a strong swimmer, loves walking his black labrador Bella, and is getting into strength training and learning all about how the body works.
