TRAIN WITH COACH LATZ
Coach Jeff Latz takes a disciplined problem-solving approach to training clients, and usually suggests small but crucial enhancements to their existing training habits, rather than giving them an entirely unfamiliar program. He believes that every runner’s most important goal should be to ensure that they can continue to run for the rest of their life, and that enjoying the sport and investing in one’s long-term health are prerequisites for any athletic achievements or other fitness goals.
Coach Latz is a USA Track and Field Level 1 certified coach, and is certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
