Whether you’re a marathon runner or novice jogger trying to shed a few pounds, this workshop is for you! Undoubtable running is an easy and effective way to keep fit and healthy, but cardiovascular exercise is only one aspect of fitness.
Strength and mobility are the cornerstone of running. This is important for both recreational runners and seasoned competitors alike.

This can result in a variety of ailments from muscle and tendon overuse injuries, lower back pain to hip bursitis and knee problems. Many wonder why they are “stuck” on the same time or can’t achieve that longer distance. Often inefficient running style or lack of strength is the problem for many runners which can be overlooked.
