Group Strength training for The endurance athlete
Group Strength For The Endurance Athlete, is a monthly membership designed for you to train in a small group setting with our coaches to achieve higher levels of performance in endurance sports. Our 2x/ week strength protocol is sport specific to runners and triathletes to develop hypertrophy, speed, power, strength, improve your resiliency to injury, and improve your longevity in endurance sports. Assessments and reassessments will be the driving force behind our programming to meet your needs as an athlete.
Why should I work with a physical therapist and strength & conditioning coach to improve my endurance? What are the benefits of strength training?
Incorporating strength training for endurance athletes is much more than back squats and lunges for 3 sets of 15 reps throughout the year. Strength training needs to be programmed with intent to be of any advantage for a runner or triathlete. Throughout the year a strength coach will develop hypertrophy, strength, and power with functional movements that will drastically improve your times on the road, trails, track, or in the water. With a proper baseline assessment we will also be able to individualize your strength training to improve biomechanics, and target under developed systems. There is a number of benefits to strength training at least 2 times a week to include; improving bone density, improving running economy, injury reduction, improving speed, improving power output, improving stride length and cadence, and improving recovery time between training sessions.
