Coleen Shaw-Voeks

Position:Owner / Coach / Instructor

Coleen is a lifetime lover of all things outdoors and energetic, and she can often be found running in the woods like a squirrel on crack. She loves coaching runners of all abilities, teaching all levels of fitness and Pilates classes and helping clients set goals and then smash them. Coleen grew up in an ultra running household and has always known that the marathon is merely a starting point for many runners. Once she stopped fighting against her inborn ability to run long and accepted her love of running ultra distances, her path in life became clear. Getting her coaching certification from RRCA was only the start of the journey towards helping create strong, healthy and complete runners. Strength training, pilates and yoga are all key pillars in being a complete athlete. You don't have to be a runner to work out at PEKC, you don't even have to like running but you will find Coleen teaching many runner focused classes and workshops and you may find a new appreciation for running. She is also available for private coaching and personal training.

Coleen will usually have a cup of coffee in hand, a sadistic class plan in mind and a stupid story or joke ready to tell. Need to bribe her? Vegan chocolate and/or whiskey is always gladly accepted but you will still have to do burpees.
