Running Assessment + Programming
Do you want to start running? Are you thinking about returning to running following pregnancy or after an injury? Unsure of how to progress or increase your mileage?
We want to acknowledge the importance of a safe (return to) running program for ALL bodies, following ALL types of injury and/or illness, and address ALL types of running goals you may have for yourself.
In the assessment, we will cover:
Health history (i.e. previous injuries)
Running experience and goals
Baseline functional movement screen (i.e. strength, flexibility, coordination)
Based off of this assessment, we will go over results and what they mean. We will also discuss if there is a need for further evaluation prior to introducing programming. If needed this will be completed by physical therapist, Dr. Jill O'Brien.
Programming may consist of the following:
Running program progression (increase volume and intensity)
Introduction or progression of strength or mobility training
Address any imbalances found during assessment
A small group fitness class that will focus on getting you ready to pound the pavement (or the treadmill or the trails) as we head into peak running season.
The goal of this 4 week series is to educate on the importance of whole body functional strength AND mobility in order to create a faster, stronger and overall healthier runner. Prevention is the key to success - if you are inefficient or injured you will more than likely not continue to meet your running goals. This class series is designed to prevent and remove those obstacles, to meet you where you are at and to allow you to “hit the ground running” as soon as you are ready to ramp things up.
Whether you are an experienced runner who would like to prevent an old injury from flaring up, are training for a race and want to shave off a few seconds, or are just trying to get off the couch and want to see what happens Chelsea will offer support and guidance throughout the series.
