Our offseason RUNFIT strength program was designed by runners, for runners. Effective strength training can improve resilience to injury and also increase performance on the trails, but often a lack of familiarity in a gym setting can hold us back from getting the most out of our training.
Our run expert James Greene will be coaching athletes of all skill levels through an 8-week, 16 session periodized training cycle targeting common running limitations found in core control, single-leg stability, plyometrics, run technique, & strength, while also building familiarity with the barbell.
The goal of this program is to utilize your running offseason to improve injury resilience and performance. In addition to this, we want to provide you with the knowledge, skills, and strength that will allow you to be a lifelong runner!
“After struggling with knee issues for over four years and failing to find a solution to my problem, James was exactly the help that I needed to finally work through my injury. The Runfit program focused on retraining my body and rebuilding important muscles needed to get me back to the sport that I love.”
"The whole experience of working with James has been great. I was battling various debilitating pains while running and with an ultra marathon race coming, I needed to find a solution. He started suggesting various stretches and strengthening exercises, and he made changes to my run training plan. Each time I returned, he would ask how things went, took detailed notes, and then he would alter the program to incorporate the new information. I’m very happy to say that I just ran the scheduled 50k Trail Ultra and the debilitating pain didn’t come back through the entire race. I will continue to work with James to improve my strength and mobility so that I can continue to run further, faster, and without pain."
“When I was first introduced to James and the the runfit program a year ago, I had several overuse injuries and was struggling to complete a half marathon. After completing the program I'm happy to say I have just finished my first ultra, feeling strong and completely injury free. James, being a runner himself is very knowledgeable and encouraging, I can't thank him enough.”
“The Runfit program has helped me to become a smarter runner. I’ve struggled with injuries and been able to recover 100% after dedicated support and guidance on how to run stronger, smarter and more effectively. The coaching aspect and therapy that has come with working with James has brought me to a new level in my running.”
I believe that physical activity and movement are integral to maintaining balance in life and I strive to enable others to achieve their personal peak performance in sport, physical activity, and health.
I do this through an assortment of muscle energy techniques, movement-based exercise progressions and the development of periodized rehabilitation and training programs combined with creative collaborative thinking. Through these, my goal is to allow people to balance their physical activity, training budget and maximize their athletic performance.
