IMPORTANT;

It is not the goal of the Lifestyle Assessment to make dramatic and unrealistic changes to your lifestyle but rather identify the most important places where we can make small changes to reap the biggest rewards first and foremost. We want all our marathon runners to train hard but to also train smart and achieve the goal of the particular sessions during the week.
