A little about me...Ernest Lewis...I've helped individuals reach their personal performance and fitness goals including running 5K races up to marathons.  RRCA and NESTA certified, I am a 3:18 marathoner and have completed 38 marathons including Boston and the Oil Creek 100 Ultra-marathon, as well as numerous 5K races and half-marathons.

My philosophy includes training 2 sides of each runner or:

Training the Whole Runner

1) The physical training: get fit, lose weight, look and feel great!

2) The mental training: believe in yourself, find your inspiration, gain self-awareness and discipline!

With these two training elements, you can find your motivation, be empowered, and reach your goals!

As a Coach, I help advanced and beginning runners with their running and general fitness training.  My expertise has accumulated over 10 years of running and started with the desire to get fit and to lose weight.  Since 2001, when I couldn't even run one mile without stopping, I've been running and have lost over fifty pounds, run a boat load of races and coached advanced and beginning runners on how to run, run better, and achieve their goals and dreams.

Choose your program, and I will help you get there!
