About Coach Tammy Lee

I am a coach, educator, and endurance athlete with 22+ years of experience. I know what it’s like to be a single mom, juggling a full-time career, have hit rock bottom and climb back out. I have made it a lifestyle and a professional career to helping others. It’s not about being better than everyone else. It’s about doing something that you love to elevate your own life.

MY STORY…

I was a single mom while juggling an art gallery management position and going to university full-time to acquire a Bachelor of Education degree. In the latter years of this juggling act, I decided to do my first half-ironman at the Bridgetown Triathlon. I placed 2nd in my age category and 5th female overall.

In 2012, after struggling to land a full-time teaching position during massive school closures, I decided to start my own fitness business – GO FIT LIFE! During this time, I also decided to take on an ironman-distance triathlon (EPIC IRON) to raise money for Pro Kids. While I raised more than $4000, I had 10km to go when I was pulled off the course as I could not meet the cut-off time of 15-hours during the race. I’m not a quitter. I signed up for the 2013 event.

I was determined to nail it this time. Not only did I raise another $3000 for Pro Kids but I completed the race,  shaved two hours off my overall time, placed 1st in my category and qualified for the 2014 Long Course World Championships. I was 41 years old and still a single mom.

After this, I got hooked on cyclocross and mountain biking. Now I’m a TransRockies Band Champ and currently training for my third multi-day mountain bike stage race and first multi-day gravel race. My son is an adult now and my fitness business has grown with the expansion into the education sector.

I provide endurance athletes solutions for three big problems that I personally have overcome and get the most requests for help – losing weight, developing core strength, and training efficiently.
