Fuel your passion Mission
"WHAT LIES BEHIND US AND WHAT LIES BEFORE US ARE TINY MATTERS COMPARED TO...WHAT LIES WITHIN US" - EMERSON
The name "Fuel Your Passion" was developed because we are all athletes. We all have a burning desire deep inside to achieve something we never dreamed possible. This is where it starts. This is where your journey begins.
With both proper fueling through nutrition and a custom coaching plan, I know together, we have the tools to help turn small, glowing embers of desire to become a more fit athlete and healthier individual, into a raging fire of success. The feeling of reaching a goal that you are so passionate about is extremely gratifying, and I would love to help you get there with a program designed to keep you happy, healthy, and in the best shape of your life.
As a coach, I believe that regardless of your current fitness level or training background, I can help you put together a manageable training schedule that meets your needs. By providing an affordable, yet customized training plan specific to your unique goals and lifestyle, your success is my success!
My experience has taught me that every athlete is a special and unique challenge, and each possesses characteristics that can assist him or her in using these wisely to reach their goals. For some, this goal may be to win a race in their age group or reach a personal record. For others, just finishing an event feeling strong and confident may be a huge success in itself. As a coach, I want to provide guidance, support, knowledge from personal experience, motivational techniques, sport specific training advice and instill a belief that together, we can truly find the balance between life and sport.
If you are looking for something different, challenging, and more effective than your current program, Fuel Your Passion can help you get there.

Holli Finneren - Triathlon Coaching
Holli has been an athlete since the early days where she had to keep up with her older brother on the soccer field. She spent years of hard work and dedication honing skills, techniques, and tactics to land a college scholarship to NCAA D1 Georgia Southern University. During her 4 years at Georgia Southern while majoring in Exercise Science/Kinesiology she began to develop a passion for fitness, nutrition, and physical well-being. Holli had no clue that Georgia Southern University would also be the birthplace of her triathlon career. Spring of her senior year came around and the inaugural GSU Sprint Tri was going to take place in February. On a borrowed bike, minimal swim experience and whatever Google knew about triathlon she went all in. Despite having horrible swim techniques and not once completing a brick workout she finished as 2nd place female and became hooked on the sport. She slowly worked my way through the triathlon distances racing sprint, Olympic, 70.3, and 140.6 during the 3 years that followed. She was self-coached throughout my first 4 years of triathlon and despite not having a good mentor was able to land many age group podiums and a couple of over-all podiums. In 2013 she took a step back after having completed her first Ironman in 2012 to refocus and figure out what she wanted out of the sport of triathlon. It was during this year, still as a self-coached athlete, that she began to see the potential of what she could do with more guidance and structure. In 2014 I was selected to an elite team and also began working with coach Kim. She PR'd every distance raced in 2014 and learned more than she ever thought possible about racing, training, recovery, nutrition etc. Adding a coach to her already determined, dedicated, and passionate personality has been exponentially beneficial. In 2014 she finished 6th in her AG at IMLP and topped off the season with an AG Championship at Augusta 70.3. She has continued working with coach Kim ever since and has achieved her goals of qualifying and racing at the Ironman World Championship in Kona.
While at GSU she majored in Exercise Science and Kinesiology - graduating with honors and as the classes Outstanding Exercise Science major of the year. She holds a minor in psychology, focusing on the psychology of coaching and psychology of sport. As a college athlete, she learned the benefit of working with a sport psychologist during her career and knows just how valuable training the brain can be.
