Born To Run – Running and Conditioning Programs
My programs are focused on four areas: 1. Complete beginners., 2. Men 40+ who want to build all around conditioning and regain the eye of the tiger., 3. Middle School Middle Distance Athletes who want to develop speed, agility and endurance that will last a lifetime., 4. High Performance Runner’s who want to train properly to increase their speed, endurance, agility and avoid or reverse injuries brought on by muscle imbalances and overtraining.
Why is it so many runners don’t achieve their goal times? Why are 50% off all runners injured half of the year ?
The answer…..their training habits. Most runners do too many miles and avoid doing the structured work that includes varied pace work, drills, calesthenics and cross training to maintain the muscle strength and conditioning over the entire body. Adding this to your routine allows for healthy and proper running year around.
There is a misconception that this type of training is hard, unnecessary, and the root of injuries. This is not the case. However, it is critical to integrate this type of training gradually and in small doses. It can be too hard, too much and can create injuries if you jump into quality workouts, or interval workouts you aren’t prepared for.
This program starts with small doses of very easy movements. As the athlete gains strength and coordination they experience great improvements in their stride, efficiency and comfort.
We help runners experience a training program that eases them into training like the pro’s. The benefit of this routine is to reduced injuries, increased efficiency and power. The ultimate results are longer distances, and faster times, with less effort.
This routine is good for beginning runners, runners who are getting back in shape, and runners who are currently running on a regular basis but avoiding this structured routine. While one is adding it to their current mileage to supplement, the other is building the strength to be able to increase mileage with efficiency, comfort and less injuries.
I have structured the programs into groups that best represent where you are and what your goals and short term potential is. It is best to train with other athletes who are in similar condition as you are.
The different levels are Base Conditioning for beginners who are getting into shape for the first time or it has been a long time, High Performance Running Development for folks wanting to improve their running , Men 40+ who want to do a total body conditioning program that will prepare them for the second half of life and maintaining the highest quality of life possible (Men’s Program), and finally the Middle School Mid Distance Speed and Endurance Program.
The middle school program teaches and coaches our youth on how to get in shape and how to progress. This conditioning helps their short term athletic goals, their academic ability, their health and wellness and most importantly, their long term ability to stay fit and ultimately healthy.
