With nicer weather and temperatures finally here to stay, running once again becomes a great exercise option for many people. It’s something to do to stay active and to burn some calories. A way of getting outside to enjoy the fresh air. Perhaps your favorite way to relieve some stress and get a break from the barbell or your daily work responsibilities! We’re here to remind you that how you run, whatever the reason may be, is important.
Running seems simple…in theory. It’s something we naturally learn within the first few years of our life. For very few of us, actual training in the proper way to run may be learned if we ever joined our school’s track or cross country teams once upon a time. But for the rest of us, we mostly never think twice about it!
Luckily, our coaches have the skills and knowledge to help you improve your running technique, while keeping things simple. And the Pose Method of running is the perfect place to begin.
Watch Coach Jay discuss and demo the Pose Method of running:
The utilization of proper running mechanics, as shown in the Pose Method, can help you in a number of ways:
- Smoothing out how your body feels and moves from head to toe.
- Protecting the joints in your ankles, knees, and hips.
- Controlling, and even improving, your endurance and pacing/speed.
…all things to that become vitally more important as we age!
