5k & Strength Training
The Energetic Way
- Exercise is an act of self-compassion not a punishment
- Get out of bed excited about showing up for a workout instead of dreading it
- Exercise is second nature
- Know the power your body has today
- Be ok showing up exactly as you are
This isn't just a vision--it's what my clients shared with me about what they get out of our time together.
Here's what's 100% true:
- Without a community and mindset work, we lack compassion for ourselves.
- Without an expert in our corner, we lack guidance and risk injury.
- Without a plan and a place to show up, we are always starting tomorrow.
Run a 5k, build strength, or both.

What people Say
“I want to thank Helen Birney for her inspirational support and encouragement in getting me out of the funk. I didn't let what happened last week carry beyond Monday. I changed my mindset, my eating patterns, got up and moved 3 out of the remaining 4 days (mon - fri), ate what I had prepped, stuck to my night routine. My sleep has been completely different. waking up after 6-7 hours and feeling refreshed. Thank you, Helen for being on speed dial!”
"I walk/ran M and W - It's Week one of my second cycle with Helen Birney. And I even got to wake up early for the 6am Strength (My 3 yo joining me didn’t get to highjack my plans!)
This is very much a shift in lifestyle that I struggled to achieve for so many years, and that Helen has facilitated with grace and determination. She won’t do “it” for you, but you can count on her to support you every step of the way, with competence, compassion, and with the right amount of kick-ass to keep you honest.
Thank you Helen and group, you are such a great addition to my life. 🙏🏻👊🏻"
“I know a lot of us are feeling crappy, eating way too much and feeling completely depleted and that is why I am posting this here. Helen has completely changed my life through her coaching and her energetic eating and movement program. For those of you who need a change now and are feeling stuck and don’t know how to get through this time, I really suggest contacting her. She is so amazing and can help you get to the place where you want to be."
"Helen took me by the hand and showed me how I could start small and gradually increase my running times. It changed my life to have someone tell me I could do this, and now I'm crying writing this. I run 3 times a week and I absolutely love it, and my body and mind feel great! I've ran 2 5Ks and one more is coming up."
