REAL WORLD ATHLETES

Testimonials

We have partnered with Semper Fi Fund as the organization’s recommended coach for their athletes competing in numerous races throughout the country. With over a 1,000 athletes fundraising to aid USA wounded active and separated military personnel, it is a cause near and dear to our hearts.

The best way we can think of helping is through our Semper Fi Giving Back Program. SFF registered fundraisers, coached by LEAP-Coaching, will receive 25%  of their monthly coaching fees back as a donation to their Semper Fi Fund fundraising page on race day.

Start your registration today and then let the coach know your SFF fundraiser page.

We are excited about our plans to attend as many Semper Fi Fund races as possible.   Look for Coach LaBranche at the Semper Fi Fund tent at these big events.

ABOUT COACH LABRANCHE

Steve’s early running career success was based on the application of early 1980s eastern block periodization and neuromuscular training principles. This approach has gained a wider audience, and is now is at the core of the USATF training philosophy.

Coaching approach was instilled by previous coaches: Jeff Morin (Former Assistant @ USCGA and current Assistant @ Conn College), Jan Merrill-Morin (‘76 Olympics, World XC Champion, Former 1500m American Record Holder, Former Assistant @ Rutgers Univ) , & Norm Higgins (NYC Marathon Winner).

While training for his first Boston Marathon, he discovered trail running and ultra-marathons. For the most part, he has since given up road racing in favor of ultra-marathons and epic endurance weekends in the mountains.
