What We Do

As running coaches, we coach the whole athlete. We get to know you, your goals, what makes you tick and what obstacles you face. We then create a custom training plan incorporating all of this information. We then provide expert support through 1 on 1 coaching sessions and/or online support. You can send us with your training questions, and we will respond with feedback in between coaching sessions. As race day nears we will help prepare to have your best experience and performance. Customized Training Plans are delivered via the Final Surge web based coaching platform, so you no longer have to deal with numerous spreadsheets and emails. There is even an app so you can have access to your training plan wherever you are! We firmly believe that in order to perform at your best you have to take care of yourself. We have two main areas which we focus on aside from the running. Self care and mental toughness. To get the most out of your body you have to take care of it and treat it with respect. It makes sense right? We help you optimize you nutrition/hydration and fuelling. Provide coaching to help you recover faster from workouts and to help you incorporate an injury prevention and maintenance plan. To perform at your best you have to get your head right. Weather it is trying to find the will to keep pushing at 110% on race day when every once of your body is telling you are finished or you find yourself struggling during workouts. It all starts in your head. We provide coaching to help you become mentally tough. When it all comes together, we help you remove your perceived limitations to accomplish your goals, weather your running your first 5k, trying to get that Boston qualifying marathon or tackling a 100 mile ultra.

Real Results

Rick is an approachable and engaging running coach. He coaches and empowers clients on how to tackle challenges and make changes that get results.

"In January, I joined the New Leaf Endurance "Furiously Frosty Morning Fun Time" to work on my running form, speed, and avoiding injury, and to run with good people who would motivate me to get off my arse and keep moving. Coach Rick focused my efforts in and out of Furiously Frosty Morning Fun Time, giving me running plans each week that would help me gradually continue building speed but also build up my endurance big time. Then in mid-April I fostered, and promptly adopted, a dog, and my run schedule went out the window. Rick patiently worked with me on scheduling training runs that were actually doable, incorporating runs with my dog as warm-ups / cool-downs, and shifting days around in the schedule to accommodate my new lifestyle. I discovered lots of aspects of running, not to mention diabetes management, that I need to explore and get better at. "Thanks!" to New Leaf Endurance for guiding and supporting me all along the undulating road to my first seemingly-impossible running goal. Cheers!"

“NLE provides knowledge and program flexibility which allows me to make informed decisions when setting goals and developing training plans. When I experienced some minor injuries before the PEI and Boston marathons, Rick helped me overcome the self-doubt and adjust my training plans to help me achieve my goals.”
Jeffrey Mosher
Client
"I had the opportunity to practice hill training one-on-one with Rick one afternoon, and I was stunned by the accuracy and benefits of his tips. After signing up for the Blue Nose as a New Year’s resolution, I knew I needed help, and Rick seemed the perfect choice. I enjoy the focused coaching, his listening to my concerns and questions, and addressing my priorities in the plan he gave me. As a result, I was able to train in a way that was challenging, yet not damaging to my body. He pushed me hard enough to build a lot of endurance, and his training plan was very clear and easy to follow. On the morning of the race, I had zero stress at the starting line, because I truly felt prepared, and that made the race really enjoyable !"
