Athlete Testimonials

“Lesley’s training approach has allowed me to successfully practice and improve in all three components of a triathlon. She has been particularly helpful with the swim portion, from writing specific pool swim sessions to practicing with me entering and exiting the water. Whenever I feel nervous or apprehensive, she helps me tackle that issue with a hands-on approach.”
Jess Cerra, CalCoast Cycles team member & XTERRA athlete

“Lesley’s one-on-one training sessions have helped me tremendously. With her guidance, I have reduced my 100M swim time from 1:40 to 1:20. In our run sessions, I have reduced my mile time rom 6:50 to 5:40. Showing me proper stroke and running techniques, I’m performing at a higher level and competing for podium finishes in triathlon and 5K races. If you are looking to take your racing to the next level, I highly recommend Lesley as a coach! “
David Huff – Vice President – Triathlon Club of San Diego

“I am a ROOKIE swimmer. Lesley has been patient and encouraging. I am walking (well, really, swimming) proof that Lesley’s training techniques can be applied at all skill levels and show immediate improvement.”
Pedro Noyola – novice swimmer, competitive cyclist

“I wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed my training sessions with Lesely. Not only have my swim times (my weak spot in Triathlons) improved tremendously since I’ve started working with Lesley, but my biking and running times have also. Lesley has taught me all kinds of training techniques that I didn’t even know existed. I recommend Lesely to all of my friends and members in the San Diego Triathlon Club. Thanks for taking my training to the next level!”
Karl Johnson, Carlsbad, CA

My biggest success this season came in my first ever triathlon, the XTERRA West Coast Championships. I placed second in my age category and qualified for the World XTERRA Championships in Hawaii. During that race, I remember thinking several times about techniques Lesley had taught me. Without her coaching, I’m not sure I would have ever completed that swim. When you work so hard for something, getting results like that is especially satisfying. I knew I had made the right decision in a coach.”
