Program Training

Build the strength to endure!
Running without proper strength training leads to reductions in the functional strength of key muscle groups, including the hamstrings and glutes. This is an evolutionary adaptation designed to reduce the metabolic cost of running and reduce caloric expenditure - NOT improve the performance of the runner!
benefit-image-1
No pain, all gain!
Every pound of the pavement beyond what your body can effectively recover from is a step towards inevitable pain and overuse. It's a frightening fact that 82% of runners get injured, and it's even scarier that 50% of those injuries become recurring for the athlete. This program uses fun, low-impact cross-training wherever running is not essential.

Running + Running = Boring.
We believe it's time to make running fun again by ensuring that the program is more than just running! That way, you can actually enjoy your long runs without feeling tired, beat up, and like you are dragging yourself out the front door to practice the sport you love and enjoy!

FAQs
How do I ask my coach questions?
You can post comments and questions on ANY workout. All of your posts will be read, and all serious questions will receive a response from Joe or Marissa....(Comments such as "Are you trying to kill me?!" may not be considered a real question....We're not, we promise!)
I'm signing up for my first marathon. Is this the best program for me?
If you are new to running or have 6+ months to prepare for your half or full marathon we highly recommend starting with our "Endur-Strong" program. Endur-Strong is a 12-Week Program for general fitness and prepares you for races up to 10K in distance.
What recovery methods do you recommend?
We believe runners should start each day with foot care. We use "RUNGA Mobility Balls" which also come with a complete routine for daily mobility and breathwork! In addition, we highly recommend regular sessions of cold exposure, sauna, as well as PEMF and Neubie therapies on sore legs.
