"I met Richard Wygand many years ago, when he was not fit or a professional athlete, however he was a curious, kind and inquisitive individual. I was not always a runner, being a Mom of 4 left little time for exercising. One day we were in our kitchen and Richard had turned his life into a healthy life style after feeling tired, heavy and sluggish. I could not believe the transformation, not only the body transformation but his spirit was totally different. I became what I believe to be his 1st RW training customer in Saratosa FL. He guided me without feeling doubt through a full marathon training. Believed in me and my abilities. Not only guided me and inspired me to follow my heart and train hard to the fullest of my ability. At my 1st marathon I qualified for Boston that was at the Sarasota full in 2008. In 2012 I ran the Chicago Marathon in my fastest time yet 3:25:36. Coach Richard was there every step of the way. From my day to day runs, to nutrition and footwear. His experience, knowledge, background and caring carry his athletes through lots of many different stages. He has been there and done that. He leads by example and takes each of us, athletes as individuals to make the best training plan possible and help us reach our goals. Thank You for everything you do and are RW Training. — F.S.".
