Anna Rohrer Personal Coach and Mentor
Helping runners reach their next level of racing through both mental and physical training.
I graduated from Mishawaka High School in Indiana in 2015, ran for the University of Notre Dame for 5 years, and currently run professionally for the Boston Athletic Association. During high school I was a 2x Footlocker National Champion, 2x New Balance National Champion, and 6x State Champion in track and cross country combined. I was an 8x All-American for Notre Dame and hold the school record for the 10K. Now is my time to help YOU break through and reach your next level. Whether hoping to make the varsity squad, working towards a college scholarship, or training to run your first 5K, I am here to help you reach those goals. My mission is to help all runners reach their next level of racing through personalized training plans and mentorship in areas such as nutrition, mental toughness, and overcoming adversity. I want to use my experiences of both injury and success throughout 12 years in the sport to help you reach your full potential and grow your love for running.
Strength, Training, and Mentorship:
Description: Initial zoom meeting to create a personalized training plan and strength plan. In addition, we have bi- weekly, small group meetings where I give tips and resources about all aspects that go into becoming a successful distance runner. I find the small group setting provides camaraderie and more knowledge through conversation with others.
Duration: 2 month minimum. Full mentor course is 4 months (8 meetings), with the option to extend an extra month for bonus material

"When I first started working with Anna, I felt stuck. Anna helped me realize that in order to get faster, you need to reframe the way you think; the way you think about yourself, running, food, your teammates, past races, future races, your goals, strength training, and much more. My time with Anna has made me a faster runner, happier person, and better teammate."
A. Maienbrook - High School Runner
"We are so grateful that we found Coach Anna for my high school runner. [We] have appreciated the customized training plans based on our daughter's competitive goals and current fitness. She creates effective, challenging, and appropriate workouts that my daughter enjoys. However, the most valuable aspect of her coaching role for us has been the focus on the 'mental game' of cross country. Her guidance on racing strategy, race-day jitters, and most importantly, exploring the 'why' has been so valuable and effective in my daughter's confidence, personal growth, and enjoyment in this incredible sport."
S. Lien - Mother
"Working with [Coach Anna], I have become a stronger athlete both mentally and physically. I have learned information to help me understand what it takes to be a good runner both on and off the track, which I’m certain will benefit me throughout the rest of my high school career and beyond! "
