Functional Strength for Distance Runners

Join Chaski Coach Kimber Mattox (M.S., C.S.C.S) for a six-week functional strength program, specifically designed for runners of ALL levels and ALL disciplines. You'll do a full strength workout each week, with a focus on building the strength you need to prevent injury and to improve running economy! Yes, strength can seriously make you faster! There will be a major focus on core and hip strength and developing functional movement patterns to improve your running.

An Intro to (Dynamic, Active) Yoga for Runners

Have you ever cringed at the idea of yoga, either because ‘it’s just stretching’ or because ‘you aren’t flexible enough’? Then this is the series for you. Yoga involves a variety of active, dynamic sequences that put the body through full ranges of motions (particularly regarding the shoulders, spine, and hips) and challenge your core, muscles, and joints with body weight training. It will help you elongate cramped, tight muscles in the lower back and the legs; strengthen small muscles groups—like the ankles—that are easily overlooked; improve your balance; and deepen the mind-body connection that can improve athletic performance.

The six-week series will get you moving through the basics of power yoga, reviewing and building up each week. I will cue how to move into poses—without bombarding you with any of the names—and how to find different sensations while you are there, in a way that you can understand while also getting sweaty. Modifications will always be offered and guided; yoga is good for everybody, but not every pose works for every body.

Classes will be taught via zoom, so you can work out from your own garage or living room. They will also be recorded and sent out afterwards, so if you miss class or need to do your workout at a different time you will be able to do that too.

Kimber has worked as a strength and conditioning coach for college, elite, and community level athletes and loves teaching people how to use strength to improve their running, so you are sure to learn some things!

Sarah has been working with runners of all levels, from high school beginners to seasoned pros, for most of the last decade. A runner herself, she loves to teach other runners that you don't need to be flexible to get started and that yoga has so much to offer runners.
