Located just North of downtown Seattle, University Village offers everything from dining to local boutiques and national retailers like The North Face. You can hike, bike, run or stroll at nearby Green Lake Park -the site of an annual Iron Girl race – or over at the University of Washington campus (Go Huskies!). When the Seattle downpour has you running indoors, you can check out one of our free fitness classes. University Village is known for being dog-friendly, so bring your furry friends along for a sip of water and a doggy treat!
“Never give up” could easily be Lesley Mettler’s motto. An eight-time Ironman Finisher, including two Ironman World Championship Finishes, are just the start of her long list of personal fitness accomplishments. However, Lesley’s true heart lies in coaching and watching athletes achieve things they never dreamed possible. She has coached first-time racers, elite athletes, 100lb weight loss stories, accident victims, cancer survivors, and moms juggling fitness as part of a busy life. As there are endless ways to get from A-Z, Lesley focuses on finding the correct path for each individual.
