My favorite client story
Recently, I had a client approach me about training for a marathon, in 6 weeks! This client had never competitively run or continuously run in her life. She was in decent shape and had good form. Which, provided a realistic goal.
Through progressive distance training, strength training, and a Galloway approach on race day she was able to finish the Walt Disney World Marathon. In addition, she not only enjoyed the race but enjoyed the parks as well. During the race, she had spare time to ride a few rides and take pictures with multiple Disney characters.
"I give Kathy all the praise in the world. A marathon is not an easy task, but a marathon in 6 weeks of training is a mind-blowing accomplishment."
Since her accomplishment: Kathy has set multiple small goals and has accomplished them all. She has dropped 30 plus pounds, has completed an additional hand full of half marathons, 1 Half IRONMAN, and multiple triathlons. She plans to take on the grand-daddy of all events the full IRONMAN in the next year.
"Keep up the good work Kathy."

Scott has been my trainer for approaching 4 years. He is a skilled running, swimming and all-around trainer who has pushed me to get to my goal. He has worked with me to my first half-marathon (I've done 4 now) and even developed fitness plans for me to follow while I was recovering from an injury. Scott has always pushed me to continue getting better and growing my fitness along the way and I would HIGHLY recommend Scott and if you are looking for running, swimming and fitness training he is your GUY!
Scott is a great running coach. He is very knowledge of the sport and provides challenging workouts. He is also very flexible to work around his clients’ busy schedules. After training with Scott for two months, I brought my marathon PR down by 12 minutes and after continuing his workouts for another season, was able to qualify for the Boston Marathon. I would recommend Scott to any of my running friends.
For several months, Scott has been helping me train for a marathon. I have tried numerous times on my own in the past, but couldn't seem to get over the hump. Scott is extremely knowledgeable in areas that I sorely lacked -- proper form, training techniques, nutrition, breathing, recovery -- and he backs up that knowledge with amazing workouts specifically designed just for me. He is able to motivate, but is also understanding and helpful when it comes to injuries. Scott is always on time for our training sessions and always seems to know how to get the best out of me. My marathon is in two weeks and I am confident that I will meet my goal. Good luck in your search for a coach as awesome as the one I have had... or you can just save yourself the time and hire Scott.
