**You know strength training for runners is important - but the execution is not always easy. **

Every training plan offers you an opportunity to learn and grow as an athlete. To continuously improve your ability, you must add new elements.

A key aspect of running is improving your power to weight ration. Strength training is the easiest and most healthy way to accomplish that goal.

But it's not always clear cut what will work the best for runners.

That is why we made this coaching program.

To ensure that you are doing the right things in the gym to accomplish your primary goal i.e. running faster race times.

A plan with accountability from a real coach can take your strength training to the next level.

**You no longer need to question your strength training methods or waste time in the gym. **

This coaching will give you the confidence to go into the gym and do the right work to make you a better runner.

FAQs
Can I do strength and run on the same day?
Strength training will not effect your endurance performance in a negative way. You may feel some onset soreness as the program begins, but you will adapt and get stronger as the program continues.
I don't want have much time. How long are these workout?
The strength workouts will take roughly 40 minutes. There is a learning curve with the movements, but once you get them down it will cut the workouts down to 30-35 minutes. The mobility workouts will take 15-20 minutes each day.
Running is my priority, how many days will I be doing strength?
It would be preferred if you did two of the three strength workouts each week and all of the mobility workouts. The accountability from the program will help you prioritize the strength training against your running training.
Strength training is boring.
Not really a question, but I get it. The coaching program will change every two to three weeks to keep things fresh including circuit training and super sets to minimize the standing around in the gym.
