Tammy brings over 20 years of experience in everything from rehabilitation to nutrition consulting to achieving peak performance. 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. Tammy did not grow up as an athlete, but delved into it near the end of high school. Physical training has changed her life, and she is passionate and dedicated to helping others achieve their best.


She was a competitive amateur boxer, cross country runner, triathlete (including IM Hawaii), and elite obstacle course racer. She was the overall winner of the 36hr Ultimate SUCK (2020, both men and women), broke two Guinness World Records for burpees, and continues to push and challenge herself in new ways, including more records, ultra running events, and designing and completing grueling strength-endurance challenges to fundraise for animal rescues and survivors of domestic abuse. 

On June 5, 2021, Tammy broke two Guinness World Records for Chest to Ground Burpees with 6,116 in 12 hours and 6,260 in 24 hours before deciding to stop due to injury. She broke both previous records (5229 for 12 hours and 5555 for 24hrs) before the 10hr mark, fundraising for Harmony Farms Sanctuary. This is a testament to her belief in what she is instilling to those she trains. Embrace discipline and consistency to do what is needed, push yourself when you are not sure you can, and believe in yourself. 

​Tammy loves trail running and hiking in nature, strength training, animals, and as a true Canadian, hockey! She continues to push and challenge herself in new ways. She believes in leading by example and is very passionate about continuing to push herself as a coach, helping others achieve their best.​
