KIND WORDS FROM OUR AWESOME CLIENTS
I have been coming to Breathe twice a week for several years: Once on my own or Cross-training with Len and Nicole helped me immensely in navigating the technical footings and surviving the gruelling elevation gains during my ultra-endurance races.
My wife and I love our weekly infusion of motivation at Breathe...Nicole and Len have a real knack in modifying exercises so we are both challenged at our differing skill levels.
Over the years, I've trained with Len alongside my bride-to-be, on my own to get on-track, and in a group setting to help me push through plateaus...Booyah!!!
