throw hands!

We love this program, not only because of the cool new fitness content, but also because it places LONG-TIME TJ’s San Rafael member and friend, Paul Hughes, at the helm. One of the greatest joys of this business is working with people who are as passionate about what they do as Paul is about coaching boxing in a fitness context. It’s pretty great.

REGISTRATION IS ON for our RUNNING STRONG program, now in san rafael and MILL VALLEY!

Email jessica@tjsgym.com NOW to hold your spot and get in on our online content.

 
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.    Coach Nick Laplant is a Marin County native who grew up running the trails of Mt. Tam. He ran competitively for Tam High and earned a scholarship to Humboldt State, where he competed in Cross Country and Track and Field. Nick has competed in a number of demanding local races, including the Dipsea, and the Mt. Tam Hill Climb, and he is thrilled to be helping others reach their running potential in the beautiful running backdrop of Marin.
