TRX WORKSHOP

TRX WORKSHOP

READY TO GET STRONGER?

Do you want to improve your running stride and gait? How about building enough strength to do a full push up? FRC uses TRX straps to help you improve coordination, balance, mobility, flexibility and core stability and overall running performance. Our TRX training workshop will be a guided full-body workout and feedback session. We will cover all the perks and how-to’s of using TRX straps. Led by our expert coach Carol Housaman, Ironman race finisher with multiple TRX certifications. Runners of all strides and abilities are encouraged to come and workout!
 
What is TRX?
TRX stands for Total-body Resistance eXercise. TRX straps are suspension training straps that help you build strength and stability through functional movements where your bodyweight is the resistance. These straps were originally designed by a Navy SEAL who needed to get top-notch workout while on deployment in places that had little to no equipment. We will go over more details at the workshop but feel free to look at TRX straps a little closer HERE

NUTRITION 101 SEMINAR

NUTRITION 101 SEMINAR

NUTRITION IS MORE THAN DIETING

What do I eat before a race? What do I eat after a workout? Am I allowed to eat a few extra Thin Mints? Nutrition can be intimidating so we’re taking the subject head on to get some clarity! In anticipation of National Nutrition Month in March, we’re launching our Nutrition 101 Seminar early. The focus will be to get some of the basics down, especially before race season begins. We will cover more than just the food you can find in our Pit Stop. This will be a session about having a healthy attitude towards food and consciously choosing foods to eat for meals and for snacks. 
 
A diet doesn’t always have to be what to stay away from, what will harm you or what will affect you negatively. Food isn’t something to always feel bad or guilty about. Foods are the way to good health; a contributor to a good workout session, having good energy throughout the day and sleeping well at night.

STRENGTH TRAINING WORKSHOP

STRENGTH TRAINING WORKSHOP

 

WHY IS STRENGTH TRAINING IMPORTANT FOR RUNNERS?

It’s here! Starting this February, FRC is launching a pure strength training class called “Formula Train”! “Formula Train” is a 60-minute class designed to focus on full-body conditioning (with an emphasis on the needs of runners) that highlights strength, stability and power to maximize overall fitness and performance. You should expect to train for 45-48 minutes on our full-sized workout floor, in addition to a dynamic warm-up and static cool-down.

To kick off the new class, on Saturday, February 8th from 1:30pm-2:30pm Coach Jim is hosting a strength training workshop. This workshop will be completely complimentary, open to the entire athletic community (that’s right, you don’t have to be a member), and be hands-on, so come ready to workout. This workshop will include a total body workout with a focus on core and legs, and also an explanation of the benefits of strength training for incorporating this into your running routine and overall fitness.
