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.
