Run for your life

 Strength training for runners

Runners run, it's what we do. Good luck getting us to sleep in or skip a run without extreme grumpiness. 

Most of our injuries are from overuse; certain parts of our body are not strong enough to tolerate the repetitive impact of running, that's when pain and injuries occur.

Strength program for running trails or half marathons

IOne shoe doesn't fit every foot and a generic runners' strength program doesn't fit every BODY. 


Every BODY is different and the reason for your running pains may be very different to a fellow runner with the same injury.
