An avid triathlete, Coach Leo’s first passion has always been running. A gifted runner since High School, Leo also ran during his collegiate days. Having focused middle distance racing in college, Leo understands the importance of strength training and technique work necessary to both be fast and quick, along with being able to sustain longer efforts. After 6+ years of running, along with his now wife interests in endurance sports, he found his new challenge in the sport of triathlon.
Fast forwarding to today, coach Leo’s passion for sport and sharing his experience in endurance sports led him to becoming a certified coach. Always a true runner at heart, he has served as the race director for the Mini Donut Half Marathon since its inception in 2015.
Coaching is not simply copying and pasting workouts. It’s not about plugging athletes into an equation then seeing what pops out. It’s about recognizing individual’s strengths and building upon them; it’s about identifying your weaknesses and overcoming those challenges. Through years of experience in the sport, I am dedicated to helping you achieve your athletic goals regardless of what the “formula” might be.
”For me, it provides me much needed accountability (on those days I would rather sleep in!) and a great support system when life throws you those curveballs- like injuries or illness.Jenny S.RnR team member
