Catherine Turley, M.Ed.
Catherine is a REVO₂LUTION RUNNING certified coach, ACE certified personal trainer, founder of Fit Armadillo®, podcaster, and bestselling author. She has worked with clients all over the world. She’s enjoyed many special moments with her clients, her favorite being traveling to Europe to support a first-time marathoner running the London Marathon. She has also served as coach for Girls on the Run. Growing up, Catherine was terrified of gym class and would have run away from home if you told her she’d end up choosing fitness as her career path! Luckily, she had a weakness for hot chocolate and her grandfather would let her drink a little too much while they watched the Manchester Road Race on Thanksgiving mornings. When she was in middle school, her grandfather and father told her she could run the race herself, so she started running and has been sharing her passion ever since. Her favorite distance to run is the marathon. She is a Boston Marathon qualifier, with a PR of 3:17. Catherine has a bachelor’s degree in biology and master’s degree in education in curriculum and instruction. She is a former middle school science and health teacher, high school biology teacher, and middle and high school cross country and track coach. She is also an avid traveler, and her newest athletic endeavor is surfing, but she recommends not coming to her for surfing tips just yet!
