About This Activity

Runners face particular challenges in terms of posture and movement patterning and have very specific demands placed on their bodies. It is critical that every runner have a cross-training and conditioning program to support these needs.

In this experiential workshop with Move Wellness we’ll look at the most efficient methods for runners to build core strength, relieve hip tension, and release tight chest, neck and shoulders. Participants will learn prevention of common running injuries, and techniques and strategies for managing these injuries if they do occur in order to get back to running with the least possible down time.

We’ll also look at the most productive ways to stretch, which are the best exercises to choose when time is limited, and what modifications are appropriate for runners to utilize in regular workouts and group fitness classes.
