We believe in quality over quantity.

More is not always better. Endurance training should have a balanced variety with a focus on technique and proper mechanics. Running is a skill and should be taught and practiced. We include technique work, strength training, intervals, tempo work and well planned longer workouts into our training & plans. (swim, bike or run)
