STRENGTH TRAINING FOR RUNNERS & ENDURANCE ATHLETES:
Direct Performance’s Strength and Conditioning Class for Runners is a 45 min class meeting 2x a week geared towards improving running performance and reducing injury risk designed by Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPT) and implemented by our performance coaches. The program will contain exercises and programming strategies based on research and years of experience as DPTs that will help improve performance and reduce injury risk in runners.
Strength training is crucial to improving running performance and reducing injury risk, but we find that the majority of runners do not include strength workouts in their training plan. There could be a variety of reasons for this such as lack of equipment, time constraints, not knowing how to strength train, or fear of hurting running performance. However; when programmed correctly, strength training can, and should, complement your running program. Strength training can help to not only reduce injury risk, but improve running economy, delay fatigue, and increase your speed. If you are looking for guidance, skilled supervision, and a good workout group to hold you accountable, then this class is for you!
