Strength and General Athletic Preparedness are often the missing link in a runner’s programming and performance. An emphasis on core to extremity and multi joint movements, Strength Training for Runners will improve your running form, build muscle where it matters, and improve your mobility, range of motion, and balance. With a focus on the basics and form, you'll gain the competency to move through a full range of motion in different planes. All movements can be scaled or modified to meet your needs.
This program is a great addition to our Summer/Fall running programs or for someone looking to switch up their cross-training routine one night a week. This class incorporates different types of strength training activities to help enhance your overall fitness and running performance.
Meet Your Coach
- RRCA Level 1 Coach
- USATF Level 1 Coach
- I started my running in 1976 with the Cupertino Yearlings, an AAU youth track and field team. I ran competitively through high school but did not continue in college. I learned early that competition was counterproductive to my fitness goals. Running has been my default fitness routine since then, second only to maybe cycling. I’m a poor swimmer and suck at the bench press. My goal as a coach is to see an athlete thrive. In order to thrive, an athlete must be competent and challenged. If you are competent but not challenged, you will be bored. On the other hand, if you are challenged but not competent, you will be frustrated. It’s impossible to give more than 100%. However, after giving your all, you can give back. Coaching is my opportunity to give back to the running community.
