Austin Nolz reviewed Leapfrog Athletics — 5 star

Coach Matt is passionate and knowledgeable about running, but more importantly he cares about your long term posture and performance. He can work with all levels of athletes and explains differences in pace and effort. His explanations are easy to understand and he uses exercises to teach you how to run better! 5/5

Mike Shaw reviewed Leapfrog Athletics — 5 star 

Matt is an exceptional coach that is particular about technique yet accommodating to all levels of athletes. He's always positive and friendly, and makes sure to touch base and provide feedback with each person no matter the size crowd. Great job, Matt, and thanks for helping me run times I never expected to see!

Trading with Coach Matt Reedy has been amazing. Not only does he offer great training but the group of athletes that train with us are also incredible. Team Effort is where it is at. Thanks Matt.

A big thank you to my run coach, Matthew A Reedy.  The last three sessions I did with him were at Connor Park, which has a bridge which is the biggest hill on the course.  I bitched so much-seriously who needs to “learn” to run up and down a hill-but I ran that hill both times, no walking, and my body immediately did what he taught me to do, and I felt strong!!!  I also ran a lot more than I thought I would, and used all the breathing he taught me.  THANKS COACH!

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!
