Running Clinic

Finally, the long wait is over. On January 30th, 2010, I will be offering a running clinic from 10:30am - 1:30pm. The clinic will be held at our new training studio, PR Fitness, which is located in Brownsburg.

What's included in the clinic:
  • "Before" video analysis of each participant
  • Instruction on optimal running mechanics. Moving away from the conventional heel-strike method of running and the use of highly cushioned running trainers, you will be taught how to become a mid-fore foot striker. Additionally, you will be instructed on how to use your body and gravity for better running economy and efficiency. Athlete's will also be taught how to use their natural ability to absorb impact and to better transfer their energy into forward motion. Research supports that these methods, principles and techniques are in line with the way humans were designed to run and allows us to run with a minimal shoe, racing flat, or even barefoot! Essentially, you will reconnect with your innate ability to run more efficiently, more comfortable, faster, and you will be less prone to injury
  • Skills and Drills to apply the form and techniques discussed
  • Class will conclude with follow up video analysis to review improvements made as well as drills to continue working on optimal form
Cost of the workshop is $50. If you are signed up for my Indy Mini training program, there is no fee for this workshop. Want to sign up for the Mini training program? There is still time. Our first meeting is this Saturday (1/23/10). Cost is $125.

This training is ideal for anyone interested in improving their ability to run; from recreational runner or competitive athlete, this workshop will help. Regardless of the distance you typically run, this workshop is for you; from runs assigned in your CrossFit or BTWG workouts, 5K, 1/2 marathon, marathon, or ultra, this workshop will be of great value. I also strongly recommend this workshop to anyone who is joining us for the Dances with Dirt Team Relay.
