Our programs are not all about running, we have our own Core/LEANS strength and conditioning program that helps runners to get strong in the area’s where they might be prone to injury.
We also specialize in rehabilitation when athletes have got injured by creating cross training programs that have a very high rate of success in bringing people right back to their former best and ready to improve more.
