The Fuelimentary Approach
Hiring a coach or dietitian is a big decision. I believe the decision is more about the relationship you will build with me during your transformation.
My principles rest in:
- Providing education
- Building knowledge
- Nurturing the client while building his or her confidence.
The goals we set together will begin the partnership of two people who communicate often and provide honest feedback. Along the way, the process should be FUN! If you are not enjoying the process, then we need to TALK!
Registered Dietitian and Endurance Coach
Jill Mongene, MAcc, RD, LDN is a former public and private tax accountant turned registered dietitian nutritionist licensed in Tennessee and North Carolina. With over 20 years of running and coaching experience, she has worked with individuals and large groups through participation in road races and triathlons.
In the early days, she coached over 100 women within the organization of Nashville’s Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) to walk/run Nashville’s premiere event Tom King half marathon in 2002 and 2003. As she coached these successful business ladies, she tasked them with raising money for a 501(c)(3) and, boy, did they meet the goal in raising $100,000 TWO years in a ROW!!
You can read more about what Jill did between 2002 and 2006 here.
In 2007, she was approached by Jimmy Olander and Renee Berhman-Greiman of Diamond Rio to coach the band’s non-profit Team Rio half and full marathon group for the Country Music Marathon (now known as Nashville’s Rock N Roll Series). During the two years she coached, she helped new runners set personal records for fundraising and road racing!
In 2009, she stepped up and brought Susan G. Komen’s Race for the Cure (RFTC) to Brentwood, TN. As a runner, she realized RFTC needed to a flat, fast, certified course if it was going to grow. She achieved this goal, bringing competitive athletes to the venue AND growing the race into a true event after years of not knowing if Nashville’s race would continue. Today, this race continues to thrive!
Running and being social runs deep in Jill’s blood. She thrives on helping others live healthy and balanced lives with her knowledge as a registered dietitian and certified run coach. She creates groups that like to have FUN (FUN might even be her middle name!) and nurtures relationships all while teaching her clients how to become better in their sport and health.
The Back Story!
Little did Jill know that the path to becoming a dietitian was being laid back in 2002. During this year, she successfully pioneered to bring Fleet Feet Sports (now Fleet Feet) to Brentwood as the first specialty retail running store in Nashville, TN, before Nashville was the” IT” city. Today she still works with clients in Nashville and throughout the Volunteer state.
