Core for Runners
Many runners tend to focus on building a strong cardiovascular system & strong legs, while neglecting all the areas in between. But a structure is only as good as its weakest link, and weak core muscles can lead to injuries and sub-par race efforts – not to mention a not-ready-for-prime-time stomach. Our Core for Runners Clinic will teach participants exercises to build core strength& stability to improve overall performance & reduce injuries.
