RUNNING STRONG

Program Foundations:

•Injury prevention/Consistency 
Strength training builds stronger, more resilient connective tissues (muscle, bone, tendon, ligament), allowing athletes to train harder and with more frequency, all while avoiding injury.

•Efficiency/Muscular Power
Power is a necessity for success in distance running. Our Running Strong program aims to increase runners' ability to create and access power.

•Longevity/Health
While running has significant cardiovascular benefits, it often falls short when it comes to balance and sustainability. We will address issues and ailments common to runners, with the goal of enabling athletes to enjoy running for years to come.
