2018 off season group training

After a long season of training and racing, it is essential for athletes to recharge with more variety and less training volume. However, too often the off season results in fitness loss, weight gain, and a significant hill to climb into the following years training. The fall is a beautiful time to be outside and to work on limiters and skills! Head into 2019 with a firm foundation, and readiness to train for your chosen events. Navigate your way through the holidays!

The program is designed for experienced and intermediate level USAT10SanctionedEventsendurance athletes, who are looking to address core strength limiters and running speed potential in the off season, and keep up their motivation.  Guidance will be given to enrolled athletes on planning their 2019 season.
