Rise Sport Performance Training has provided me with a fantastic training opportunity to help prepare physically for a special forces career in the military. Tammy has worked with me to create a dynamic training plan that fit my current fitness level and that lead to constant improvement. When I first worked with Tammy, I was recovering from ACL surgery and since then I improved far beyond my fitness level before the surgery, including max PT scores. Without Rise, I would not be where I am today!”

Tammy worked with the Belmont Secondary School Bulldogs Football Team for approximately 16 months and it shows in the development of the team. Her knowledge and understanding of how the body works has taken a group of young men to a level of play that they will all tell you would never have occurred without her.
As a former sergeant who has experienced leadership in many styles, both effective and not so effective, I can say that Tammy has the ability to inspire athletes to get to the next level and higher.
I feel that Tammy would benefit any team or individual who wants to perform at the next level in any sport.

With her MSc in Kinesiology and Sport Performance, Tammy has 20+ years coaching athletes and people from all walks of life. She did not grow up as an athlete, but found her passion in fitness near the end of high school and has defied the odds: going onto compete as an amateur boxer then as a runner, competitive Ironman triathlete, elite obstacle course racer, competitor in military style ultra endurance events (including a 1st overall in the 36hr 2020 "Ultimate SUCK"), and breaking two Guinness World Records for 12 and 24hr chest to ground pushup burpees as a fundraiser for Harmony Farm Sanctuary, amongst other things. She continues to challenge herself in new ways, whether it is a 100 mile race or a grueling strength-endurance challenge to fundraise and raise awareness for non profits.

She has helped numerous athletes attain scholarships, fulfill their dreams, successfully complete Special Forces Selection, get their first win, or attain new achievements they had not thought possible.

On June 5, 2021, Tammy broke two Guinness World Records for Chest to Ground Burpees as a fundraiser for Harmony Farm Sanctuary, with 6,116 in 12 hours and 6,260 in 24 hours before needing to stop due to injury. She broke both previous records (5229 for 12 hours and 5555 for 24hrs) before the 10hr mark. This is a testament to her belief in what she is instilling to those she trains.
