Core Strength for Runners


How Important is a Strong Core?

Core strength is the foundation for all your movement - whether you are novice or experienced runner. Overall core strength allows important muscle groups to work together in a cohesive way.  A strong core can boost your speed, efficiency on uphills, help you avoid injury on downhills, strengthen endurance and improvement lateral movement on trail runs.

Class Components

Core Strength for RunnersFleet Feet's four-week program, educates runners on the importance of strength and control of the glute, abdominal and hip muscles that constitute the core. Each class will begin with a discussion of target muscle groups and how those muscles relate directly to running. Participants will learn key exercises to engage the core that can be incorporated into their personal training and workout routines. Our program coach uses the newly introduced exercises for a great in-class workout as well.

We have classes during all racing seasons!
