Hi! I'm Kelly Lutz, owner of Coaching Klutz and running and strength coach.

In 2009, I decided to take the leap and sign up for my first half marathon. I had played sports all through my childhood and had run a couple fun 5Ks, but a half marathon seemed so BADASS. I trained with a generic plan and got injured within my first month (don't worry - I started training far enough in advance to run and complete my race!). I fell in love and ran another half marathon 6 months later.
After those races, I walked on the D1 cross country team at my college and vastly improved my running with the help of my coach and our personal trainer. This is when I first saw the value in working with a coach for running. Fast forward to now, I've run multiple 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons, and 50Ks. I have become a United Endurance Sports Coaching Academy Certified Running and Ultrarunning Coach and NSCA Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist. I am also a multi sport athlete who strength trains regularly.
My mission is to help women, trans, and non-binary folks ditch their perfectionism, train sustainably, dream big and realize they can do more than they think, whether that's starting to run consistently or completing their 50th 50k. My favorite distance to coach is the 50k.
As a coach, I look at the whole picture of your life when building your training plan. Training should fit into your life, not the other way around. #trainsustainably
