Poppy Sports Will Make You a More Confident Athlete

About Poppy Sports

No matter what kind of athlete you are or whatever level you compete, Poppy Sports is for you. What started with our humble virtual store, has grown into an amazing online community that inspires us all every day.

We have an active blog, social community and You Tube channel ready and waiting for you!

Our podcast 'Coffee with Poppy' just launched on iTunes this year and we'll be interviewing inspirational athletes, those keeping it real, and those who can inspire us all.



Motivational Training

Athletes usually have a good dose of self motivation.

What happens when you take that motivation and mix it with solid mental preparation and clear race season goals?

BAM, you are awesome!

Poppy Sports Training provides a unique self-paced program to help us busy women gain the upper edge and make the race season your best.


Team Poppy Sports

In 2016 we launched Team Poppy - an inclusive accountability program and support team. We serve athletes of all levels from those first lacing up their shoes for the first time to multiple Ironman athletes.  Intimidation is not part of this team, but accountability, goals and being supported are!

For a small monthly feel, every team member benefits from the monthly challenges we set based on tried and tested techniques for life/work/sport balance and a little less insanity at the end of the day!

Our Mission

Our mission is not only to get more women to the start line but also to inspire the next generation to become the athletes and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. 

We mentor young girl entrepreneurs to help them on the path to success and independence.
