Come to this FUN and informative class and learn how easy it is to care for your body while you run mile after mile after mile after mile after…..
I am always amazed at the dedication to fitness that elite athletes maintain…mile after mile after mile! Your determination to improve your performance gives you that competitive edge. You care about what goes in your body. You scrutinize the design and function of the latest innovations in running shoes and performance enhancing clothing. You may even have had a professional analyze your gait and running stride.
Here is my question to you. For how long do you want to be an elite athlete?
About 80% of runners are injured each year.
Running on the same type of surface and with the same footwear creates many overuse injuries. Are you suffering with occasional or chronic issues of pain? Even if you’re not right now, cnances are good you will. Common runner’s ailments include;
- Runner’s Knee or Patella Femoral Pain
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Plantar Fasciitis and its BFF Bone Spurs
- IT Band Syndrome
- Shin Splints
- Stress Fractures
Become your own bodyworker! Learn how to give your body an assessment to identify potential injuries. Learn how to rebalance muscle length and strength to reactively heal from issues of pain.
I will show you how quick and simple it is to give your body a little tune-up to get you on the road to your own personal victory. You will learn how to re-hydrate a little known system of the body that is responsible for movement, balance and stability. Your connective tissue system. This system is 80% water and naturally dries as we age. This dryness compresses your joints leading to many avoidable problems that will sideline your athletic potential. Here’s the wicked cool thing about connective tissue. It’s renewable. You just have to learn how to do it.” – Instructor Wendy Patrucco
