This strength and conditioning program is specifically designed for runners to improve performance and reduce the risk of developing an overuse injury.
A strength, flexibility and stability conditioning program can improve a runners overall performance. This program will focus on improving hip, glute and core strength, along with increasing flexibility and developing stronger muscles.
Due to the repetitive nature of running, runners commonly experience overuse injuries such as IT band syndrome, hip and knee tendonitis, lower back pain and stress fractures. Establishing a solid strength and conditioning program is imperative to bolster often neglected areas and build stronger muscles for running.
This program is designed for runners (14 years and up) interested in improving performance while reducing the risk of injury.
Group size is limited to six people per instructor so personal needs can be addressed. One-on-one sessions are available if preferred. Sessions are twice a week for three weeks.
