“Working with Laurie has turned my life around. I am now so much stronger, I am able to run 5 km nonstop, and I’ve lost about 11 kg in our first 12 weeks working together. Laurie knows how to motivate people, and that is a special gift.  What I’ve learned from training with her is that it can actually be fun to run and to do physical training. Discovering that will change your life.”  – Erik, Dutch

Laurie’s Coaching Philosophy

As a coach, Laurie believes in growing athletes who are independent, confident and self-motivated. She believes in the transformative power of sustainable lifestyle changes and personalized coaching over quick results or a one-size-fits-all approach.

Laurie believes that a strong mind is equally as important as a strong body and that a lifetime of running requires a healthful, supportive lifestyle of self care and smart training.

Through her years of running & coaching, she’s developed a unique holistic approach, helping her runners train smarter, have more fun, and think beyond running to realize their running dreams and achieve more than they thought possible.

“About five years ago I stopped exercising. I randomly injured my back and could not even stand for periods longer than 10mins. I went from regularly competing in Sprint Triathlons to struggling to run one third of a mile – anytime I got up the courage to start again. After moving to the Netherlands about five months ago, I decided it was time. Weight was high, energy was low, health was poor, I could not accept my own excuses anymore. PLUS there probably could not be a flatter or more temperate place to start! Today, having completed the 10-mile Dam tot Damloop, I feel very fortunate to have found the crew at House of Running! Laurie Villarreal has been a tremendous help and kept me going after injury. I am very thankful she runs this program and is so knowledgeable and supportive.” – Benjamin, USA
