To get better at running, you've got to run. And more is better, up to a point. Eventually, more mileage stops helping, and that's when we look to cross-training. In the mission to go faster and further, and avoid injury, intelligently programmed gym-based strength and conditioning is your secret weapon. How do you make the most of your time in the gym? Why should you train in the gym, at all? Learn the strategies to make the most of your time on the trails, roads, and in the backcountry by maximizing your time in the gym. In this workshop you will learn the 4 aspects of sport performance which can (and should) be improved through gym-based strength and conditioning, and receive a sample training program to support your goals. Wasatch Fitness Academy is a community of individuals all looking to get better - better at sport and performance, fat loss, strength and conditioning, and injury prevention. Our students are climbers, skiers, runners, cyclists, and folks who don't call themselves "athletes." We're weekend warriors, race winners, and parents.
