Training location
Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am located in Tacoma. Even though I have qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon, I find it most effective to leave the runners “shop talk” out of the equation when working with beginners and focus on the stress relief, fun and overall fitness results that quality running can bring. I believe goals are the key to running success, but proper goal setting is paramount to keep runners progressing, encouraged, and injury free. What leads me to become a running coach? My success has led many of my friends and coworkers to ask me the secret to my success. It’s always fun to share running tips, fueling, and nutrition with everyone that has an ear to listen or passion for running. I love working with beginners or running enthusiast that have had to put running on the shelf due to the demands of everyday life or just want to lose some weight and gain better fitness. I offer plant-based meal plans as well as a complimentary consultation. Also on the staff is Heidi Morales. She is an inspiring and enthusiastic fitness trainer. When she returned to her home in New York City after an army deployment in 2008, she started exploring weight lifting and attending fitness classes. Seeking a change from the big city, she moved  to Texas, where her passion for weight lifting and exercise turned into a career. She earned her NASM Personal TraIning Certification  and started working at a local gym.   She’s helped countless individuals either transform their bodies and lives, or take them to the next fitness level. Heidi has also helped active-duty soldiers by creating unique training programs to help them improve their PT scores.   Heidi has competed in several body building shows in the Seattle area. She loves teaching fitness classes, competing, as well as training her team of athletes and clients of all experience levels.  According to Heidi, her fitness philosophy is,  “There is nothing more empowering than presenting a better version of yourself from the inside out.”

Leon is an excellent personal trainer! He really takes the time to figure out exactly what his clients need and then designs a workout just for them. He is very professional from the the moment you walk in the door. I would highly recommend Leon for anyone looking to improve their personal fitness.

If you’re considering working with a Personal Trainer—I highly recommend Leon. He’s encouraging, knowledgeable and keeps you motivated. He will also help you stay committed to your goals. I’ve seen a significant difference in how I feel after just a couple of months.

I have had my evaluation and two sessions so far. I am happy with the professionalism and education my trainer has been providing. From my weekly workouts, so diet advice it has been a great experience.

Leon listened and tailored my program based on the information provided. And I'm sore... but not too sore... after 2 training sessions, making this a sustainable program.

I’ve been working out with Leon for almost a year now and it’s been great. He’s super flexible with my schedule (part in person part virtual) and really knows his stuff. He has the perfect balance of pushing me past my comfort zone without making me dread our workouts or feeling like a drill Sargent. He has taught me so many new stretches and workouts and really helped me improve my conditioning and getting me closer to my goals.
