Eric is very passionate about his running as he is with his family & faith and manages to strike a balance between them all.

Featured Athlete: Melissa Mauriello
"Born in San Francisco, I fell in love my senior year of high school when I ran cross country for the first time. I remember that it felt liberating to run on grass and go off on hidden trails. The smell of pine trees was intoxicating complimented by the peaceful solitude of being alone in one's thoughts or not thinking at all. Outside my door was the luxury of Golden Gate Park, the Presidio, and Ocean Beach with spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Entering as a freshman in college, I continued to but discovered the benefits of lifting weights and the gym became my new workout routine. I ran on a treadmill for years. Then my husband and I decided to do a half marathon, and our world has changed ever since and for the better."
Melissa Mauriello currently works as a Vice President of Sales at a financial services firm. She loves morning workouts, running, reading, and purse shopping. She earned her BS, Political Science at the University of California, San Diego and an MS Organization Development at the University of San Francisco. She currently holds a Series 7 and Melissa resides in San Elijo Hills, CA with her husband who also enjoys running.

"As a coach, Jeff has been able to provide what group training programs cannot such as customized training sessions tailored to my needs. I'm a busy working professional that has a 1-hour commute. Coach Jeff works around my schedule to meet me. Jeff's stamina to run as long as I need him to always amazes me. Jeff can run 10 miles in the a.m. and then meet me for . I'm also less likely to skip a workout with Jeff when I would likely skip out on a group training so the accountability works for me. Jeff has an intuitive sense to know how hard to push and what his clients need that day whether it's a run to escape the problems of the day on a trail run or making up a new workout when you've hit a wall like running on the beach barefoot. Running with Jeff has brought me closer to where I started with running, just the pure love of being outside and not being worried about results. Although the results are great, better race times and weight loss just to name a few. I'm also having more fun since we end up talking and laughing so much we end up losing track of time. I have to manage so many items in my personal and work life, it gives me peace of mind knowing that my workouts are taken care of and Jeff has planned a route for us. It's been a joy working with Coach Jeff and I would highly recommend him to anyone." - Melissa Mauriello
