Phit for a Queen: A Female Athlete Podcast

Training is not one-size-fits-all with Kim Peek

June 26, 2020

Training is not one-size-fits-all.  Learn to take a self-study approach so you can thrive as an athlete.


In her early 40s, Kim became a runner, a triathlete, and then a coach. But she didn’t always like endurance activities. At one point, she threatened to fire her trainer because the sessions involved Kim running around the 1/10th mile track at the gym. She stuck with it because she enjoyed the camaraderie among the moms, and because she quickly dropped 50 pounds, all while realizing she was capable of achieving hard things.

The discipline she developed as a runner gave her the strength to face a 2015 breast cancer diagnosis with courage. She continued running through treatment and celebrated the end of chemo by running a half marathon with a group of friends a week later.

As a new mom, a frequently-injured runner, or a breast cancer survivor, Kim was never content with sitting back and letting life happen to her. Every obstacle, injury, and surgery motivated her to look for solutions and continue her education. 

Now—as a coach, podcaster, and author—Kim shares the lessons she's learned so that others can discover the solutions she so desperately needed. 

As a runner and fitness enthusiast, I enjoy pushing my body and mind to achieve things I previously believed were “impossible.” As a coach, I believe that everyone has the ability to become who they want to be.
