We had a great time educating members of Orange Theory in Hackensack, NJ during our Resilient Runners workshop. The main point was that running requires great demands on our bodies. It is essentially a series of single leg hops that propels us forward. Therefore it is important to go through proper warm up and have good recovery with proper training loads. More importantly, we cannot forget strength training in order to be strong for the demands that running places on our bodies. If you're a runner dealing with an injury, you might be thinking "I hate lifting and that's why I run" or "I'm not really sure which exercises are best." If that is the case, check out the report I created to help runners continue to run without pain.
Even if you are currently getting physical therapy, chiropractic, or other treatments, sometimes it is hard to get a real time view as to what is happening. Based off the previous post on convenience it is nice to help clients achieve their goals and stay healthy and active no matter where they are.
