"I started out as a person who loves running and wanted to challenge myself in a new way. This led me to triathlons and competing in increasingly longer distances. Lesley has been very instrumental in helping to steer this originally very novice triathlete through training, competitions, and transitions. She has helped to keep me on track toward my goals for the upcoming year by answering my questions, adjusting my training plan when needed, and ultimately reminding me what is best for both me and my body. She has been very encouraging and also realistic while helping me to realize my ultimate goal of a 140.6 mile triathlon. She has taken this once novice swimmer and biker, and helped to increase my abilities and confidence in many disciplines." ~Megan Gardam

"Coach Lesley provided the experience, knowledge, and direction that I required to ensure I was well prepared for my first Ironman. Her training plan was well thought out and customized for my own training needs. The personal calls before a race allowed me to ask any last minute questions and the feedback after a race was provided as well to help me learn from my experiences for my next races. Coach Lesley knows how to help get you to and through your big race!" ~ Margo Kammeyer
I am a USAT level 1 and USA Cycling level 3 certified coach. I originally got into the sport of triathlon 15 years ago, when I read about it in a magazine. I remember it saying "anyone can do it" so I thought I would give it a try. My first one was a local sprint distance race and I loved it. From then on I was hooked! Since then I have competed in over 80 triathlons, with 5 Ironman distance race finishes. I have raced all over the United States and Canada with many podium finishes.
I believe in giving back to the sport by volunteering whenever possible. I have served on the USAT Mideast Region Council holding the position of Treasurer and the Chair of the Mideast Region Club Race
Series committee. I was a coach for the Team Toledo Triathlon Club. In addition, I provide coaching for Equally Inspiring, a program to increase woman's participation in triathlon.
I am married and have a teenage daughter. I also work a full-time job so I understand the need to balance work, training and everyday life. I truly believe you can do anything you set your mind to do. "Anything is possible!"
"Thanks to Coach Lesley and Endurance Fusion, I was able to complete my first Ironman event. I knew how to swim, bike and run, what I didn't know was how to put it all together on race day. the training plan kept me motivated, we worked alot on my nutrition intake and having a coach with her experience proved to be invaluable because I had a million questions. When I'm ready to train for my next Ironman you can bet I'll be giving Coach Lesley a call." ~ Mike Sarns
