Holly is a personal fitness trainer and professional contemporary ballet dancer in San Francisco, CA. Though originally from Northern Virginia, for her undergrad Holly chose Utah (go Utes!) for its renowned BFA Ballet Performance program. During her time there she discovered Utah’s unparalleled hiking and running trails, she had become an avid trail runner by the time she’d left.
Holly’s latest pursuits in the personal training industry have been some of the most rewarding yet. She believes that anyone is capable of change. Self motivation and the ability to work hard can be taught and procured with consistent direction and accountability. When she isn’t in rehearsal or performing, in the gym with or without her clients, she’s without a doubt running up any trail she can find…just as long as there’s a view of the Golden Gate Bridge 🙂
Holly is always excited to meet and work with new athletes of all abilities! Shoot her a message if you’re in the Bay Area and looking to amp up your running 1-on-1!

No stranger to the fitness world and a former gym rat, Lee has always been very active. She started running in her 40’s, quite unintentionally and very quickly developed a passion for longer distances and hard surfaces. Long runs on concrete and asphalt long before the sun comes up are just part of her daily routine.
Lee has come to love the marathon distance, with training being a bigger draw than the race itself. While she loves the challenge of training, she sees the race as a day to celebrate the hard work and make new friends on the course. It’s all about the people.

Originally from San Diego but living in Alaska since 1985, Edward brings a new enthusiasm to The Run Experience. Having started running in his early 50s, he literally has found his stride as a runner over the past few years.
His new-found passion for running and coaching gave him an opportunity to find and then integrate the TRE running, mobility and strength tools into his own 2019 Boston Marathon qualifying training.
As both a geek and a nerd, his love of learning, science, engineering, and analysis has brought him here. He knows he has a lot to learn and a lot to contribute and is looking forward to a long tenure with TRE, where he hopes to be able to give back to the TRE community in full measure for what he’s personally gained.
Originally from Washington State, Jessica currently lives in North San Diego County. After many years of nondescript back pain with seemingly no solution, Jessica stumbled across TRE and decided to give it a shot. The combination of strength training and mobility work alongside running has made all the difference, and has resulted in a healthy, injury free runner!
Though she started with a few road marathons, Jessica soon transitioned to the trail and never looked back. Most often accompanied by her dog sidekicks on training runs, Jessica gravitates toward the ultra distances for races. She’s not fast, but she’s got endurance for days!
When not running, Jessica spends time cooking vegetarian meals, reading, and working in her garden.
Nora dog is our fearless mascot, who accompanies us in the office, on filming days and of course on runs. 🙂
