Excellence in Training
Coach Lesley and her team are passionate about multisport, running, and all types of fitness and weight loss goals. The Team is devoted to excellence in training and passing their accumulated knowledge, as well as their energy and enthusiasm along to clients no matter what their personal goals may be.
The Coach Lesley Team supports clients in achieving their multisport, fitness and weight loss goals by designing highly personalized training programs that are fun, safe and efficient and providing clients with the support they need to succeed (group workouts, private workouts, e-mail and phone support, technical expertise, etc.). These programs are well-balanced: we understand that training is only one aspect of your fitness success; respecting your body and health, devoting appropriate time and resources to family commitments, personal commitments and career are all paramount.
Coach Lesley and her team consider training and fitness to be a work in progress – always. Whether you’re goal is triathlon, weight loss, duathlon, running or general fitness related, training is not only about completing a workout. Training is about understanding what you are doing and why. It is about constant communication with your coach and adaptation. Improving your fitness requires balance, discipline, resilience and commitment. It also requires the ability to step back at times and have fun.
The Coach Lesley Team has coached numerous athletes over the years, helping them achieve their personal goals and maximize their potential. We have worked with clients to create a sustainable weekly exercise routine and/or weight loss program. We have coached clients running their first 5k/10k or completing their first sprint triathlon. Other clients have learned to swim in open water and still others have set a new marathon PR, qualified for Boston, or finished an Ironman.
Coach Lesley will help you believe in your body and achieve your best!
