Join us for a Runner's Alley Concord first! We have Liz Durant of Affinity Fitness coming in with her instant pot and a delicious recipe or two to fuel the run. She will explain the pros and cons of the Instant Pot and how meal prep can improve your run.About Liz Durant:I began my career in fitness training and coaching shortly after running my first marathon at age 40. Until then I was in the field of finance and accounting, and an involved community member raising my three children. I had been active my entire life, playing soccer, lacrosse, tennis, swimming, skiing, and golf, so moving into the field of fitness training was a natural transition. I developed a passion for helping others reach their fitness goals after I began training other runners for races, from 5ks to marathons. In 2005, I became a Certified Personal Trainer and worked in a brand new, state of the art, fitness facility in Memphis, TN. It was there that my love for supporting, teaching and guiding clients of all ages and fitness levels was solidified. In 2006, I became a Certified Group Fitness Instructor and brought my commitment and enthusiasm to the group fitness arena. I then became a certified Les Mills Instructor in Body Pump in 2007 and a R.I.P.P.E.D. certified instructor in 2013. I currently teach indoor cycling, pilates /core, strength training and instruct at various locations in the greater Concord area. As a wellness and fitness coach, I enjoy creating plans for both individuals and small groups, working hard to make you, the client, feel safe, successful, and able to pursue the activities you enjoy. My goal is to work with what you love to do, encourage you to try new activities, and strengthen you physically, mentally and emotionally, enabling you to reach your goals. I work with all ages and fitness levels from the individual coming back from a fitness hiatus or injury, to a competitive or recreational athlete who has specific goals in mind, to a young adult looking for support to develop healthy fitness habits. Over the past 9 years, I have continued to pursue my avocation of running by completing 21 marathons and numerous other races, including 6 triathlons. I have coached and continue to officiate lacrosse and field hockey. I look forward to working with clients here at Jeremys and am happy to answer any questions you may have!
