Julie Creffield

Julie Creffield is a plus size athlete, author and entrepreneur from East London who is on a mission to get 1 million overweight and inactive women running.
Julie is not your typical runner because she says she is FAT; however she doesn’t get hung up on labels and insists that the idea of there being just one type of runner is ludicrous – If you run…you are a runner SIMPLE!

In 2003 weighing almost 20 stone a work colleague convinced Julie to take part in a 3k fun run and with absolutely no training she almost died on the way round, and not only due to the unusual strain on her body, but also from pure embarrassment when a young boy shouted“Run Fatty Run” as she passed him.

She was in her early twenties and unable to run for more than 30 seconds at a time. That shocked her into taking action and regaining control of her life. The following day she signed up for the London Triathlon, which she completed just 3 month later in a XL wetsuit that just about fitted her size 18 body. She did nothing more than dabble in sport for those first 6 years making very little progress in terms of weight loss or general fitness as she would simply compete in races, but never do any real training. Her inconsistent diet and partying lifestyle didn’t help much either.

As long as you learn to listen to your body and build up slowly there is no reason that anybody of any size shouldn’t enjoy the sport of running.

Having seen Julie a couple of times in action, whether on stage or in a group coaching setup, I am confident to say she wowed the audience. Julie has the incredible gift of being unapologetically her fabulous self (and yes, she is fabulous!) while really seeing others with great empathy...
