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 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.

Matt is a great coach- there is more to running than just the legs. Matt's training methods will help increase speed while preventing injuries. I have never seen as much progress in such a shot amount of time.

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
