It starts with technique.

Whether your sport is running or involves running, learning proper body mechanics and the technique of running greatly reduces your risk of injury. And surprisingly, most of us have never been taught proper running form, meaning we're never running as strong as we could be, and we're also at greater risk for injury. 

Knowledge is power. Our Running Technique Teachers analyze your form, identify biomechanical deficiencies, and develop customized training programs to get you running with strength and confidence.

Everyone is a runner.

No matter your sport, you probably spend more time using running actions than you do the specific skills you train on every day. Soccer players handle the ball less than 1% of their time on the field but can run up to 7 miles per game! Basketball and tennis...up to 3 miles per game.

Our certified specialists focus on mobility and strength so you can build explosiveness and endurance with less worry of injury.
