Reviews on Lazy Loser and Lazy Runner Talks and Workshops

“Marie’s presentation at my fitness club was fabulous, we can’t wait for her to come back again.  Marie connected with each person in the group and was so friendly and down to earth.  She gave us some simple tips on how to improve our running.  They were easy to implement and really do make a huge difference.  From a business perspective, I was so impressed with how Marie was able to promote the use of my health and fitness club to the audience and referred to me and my team as people who could assist the runners with improving their performance.”
Michelle; Club Manager; Solutions Health and Fitness Club, Mackay

Thanks heaps for your massive contribution to our conference weekend, our franchisees just loved the running workshop on the last day.
We have already had some great feedback with the catch phrase "What would the Kenyans do?" being thrown around
The Kiwis are going to love you

Thank you so much Marie for the running workshop that you recently ran for my Bootcamp.  Everyone really enjoyed learning more about how to improve their running technique.  The information you also gave regarding the key stretches were fantastic.  We have all been coaching each other since with the key points you gave us.  For me personally, just improving my technique has seen an improvement in my shin splints. 

A big thank you Marie for your visit to the Kingaroy Library yesterday morning to talk about your 'Lazy' books. Everyone loved your talk as it contained a wealth of information about how to improve our health.
A great time was had by all with a lot of giggles and excellent health tips, thanks again Marie!
Danielle, Kingaroy Library

It was well worth the trip to Miranda Library to hear Marie speak on running for fitness and sensible eating as opposed to dieting. My joy for running was rekindled and my love of food was affirmed. No need to diet, just eat sensibly. Marie is passionate about her subjects, and seduces the listeners into her passions.

Hi Marie-Just wanted to let you know that I haven't let your book out of my sight since I got it, going back to it every few days for more running knowledge. Since following your posture and correct training tips, I am now running 5k injury free (I had a torn calf when I met you and hadn't been able to run 3k!), I have taken 3 mins off my Qld Park Run PB for the last 2 weeks in a row, and have been extending my runs by 10% each week. A very sincere THANK YOU!!!!
Sharon, Run Right Session, Gladstone HUB Fitness Centre

'Marie bean- a very very big thank you. I attended your workshop at our Gold Coast conference - it was the best thing I have done in Forever... Changing the way I run means my ass is really sore but I'm finding it so much more enjoyable ( not to mention less exhausting) I tested hips forward, head up, arms resting, shoulders down style out on Sunday in the rain.., felt good.. Can't say I enjoyed being soggy thought it might have been a fluke / happy run day. Did another 10km tonight and still bloody loving it.... I didn't want to stop (usually im asking how much further to my training buddy) today I asked her can we do another lap (4km) as I felt so very good... If she hadnt reminded me that we can't overdo it... I would have thoroughly enjoyed keeping going. I think I had a run_gasm! So thank you once again....

It was a privilege to meet you on Saturday at the Running Workshop – you have revolutionised the way I run – I read the posture chapter of Lazy Runner as soon as I got home and have run 10km in the last two days! Unheard of for me – but I am thoroughly enjoying running again – running with purpose and certainty!

Marie is a really interesting speaker, she has an enthusiastic and friendly manner and had lots of useful advice.
The library audience had a lot of fun and learned something about themselves.

It was lovely to have you here; the positive comments and feedback are still filtering in.   They found your ‘no-fuss’ approach very refreshing and enjoyed the talk immensely.
