Matt's workouts are overall health driven. He varies his workouts to keep them interesting. You don't go to just become a runner or a faster runner although both will happen. Leapfrog does a full body workout to produce lean muscle, healthy connective tissue, teaches breathing techniques, as well as help you to overcome some mental challenges too. Every body is different and every one's potential is unique to their phsyical abilities and goals none the less you will become an athlete! Matts techniques will help in more than just running, he helps with utilizing your whole skelton to relieve stress on bones, or injuries, etc. Join and learn from the best and have fun!! I learned a tremendous amount while training with Leapfrog!! I wish there was a group like Leapfrog in Charlotte where i mow reside. I miss it!!

I had a lot of fun training with leapfrog for my first triathlon! Everyone was super welcoming and I learned a lot. Thank you Matt for all you help! I did much better than I thought I would and now I can't wait for my next one. 🙂

I want to thank Coach Matt for helping me train for my 1st half IM. I was only in Naples for a month, but the group was very welcoming and inclusive. Coach Matt was very informative on riding and running technique, while being encouraging. Thanks Leapfrog Athletics. I am so happy I found out about your program.

Taking part in my very first event with Leapfrog Athletes run by Matthew Reedy not only made me feel welcomed and inspired, I also felt all of the athletes attending reminded me just how blessed I am with such an awesome Running Community we have down in the heart of Naples, Florida. I look forward to upcoming events and sharing time with such an organized program. Matt is dedicated to his work 110% and you will find all that you have within you once you made your decision to put one foot in front of the other and challenge yourself to the best in you! Good Luck with your training and allow Leapfrog Athletics be your guide! 5 Stars

I would like to send out a very big thank you to #Matthew Reedy at #LeapfrogAthletics ( hope I did the hashtag things right, I'm so untechie).

At the beginning of summer I reached out to him to say I've been a slug for the past year but would love to begin training with LeapFrog again but didn't think I could keep up. He assured me I would be fine and encouraged me to show up. It has only been a few weeks and I already feel so much stronger! It is great to be a part of the Leapfrog Athletics family again. The comradery and encouragement from the group is amazing!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I finally found my group! It’s been a game changer for me and my only regret is that I didn’t discover Leapfrog Athletics sooner!! Matt is a terrific coach - he welcomes new members warmly and adapts each session catering for a range of running abilities to make sure ‘newbies’ aren’t overwhelmed and seasoned runners feel challenged. I ran before joining leapfrog, and had a few 10ks and 3 half marathons under my belt, but I’ve learned so much about running and technique since I joined in October! 

 

Previously I was never able to run a 10k without stopping. I didn’t enjoy the half marathons and my recovery was a struggle. I always had to have a bottle of water in my hand. I was also dependent on music, I even couldn’t attempt hold a conversation whilst running!!! 

 

Now - I know what it means to run with purpose. I recognize technique and have a new found ability to listen to my body and reset mid run.

 

I no longer feel the need to walk. I don’t ever run with a water bottle in my hand. I don’t rely on music or my garmin. I’ve PR’d my 5k, 10k and half! I run strong and feel so confident with my training and readiness to race. I’ve met amazing people - which was much needed for me being new to area! 

 

Fantastic! Fun! Fitness! Friends! - Come try it!
