Get Strong Outdoors!
Do you struggle to find the time to get your strength work done? Would you rather be outdoors then stuck inside a gym? Or not sure how to train for a hilly race course when you don't have hills nearby?
Come see for ourself one of my favourite workouts that combines easy trail running with strength work. No weights or gym required-instead we will use benches, stairs, rocks, grass, hills, park equipment and just about anything else Mother Nature has to offer to get that burning feeling in our muscles.
Not only will you get in a workout, but you will also leave the session with plenty of ideas on how to incorporate this into your weekly routine using your own backyard-or local trails!
2 options to choose from

Hills 'N Drills
Learn how to master hills! This clinic will teach you everything you need to know about hills...including how to incorporate them into your training, even if you don't have mountains nearby. We will review and practice different techniques for going up and going down, and discuss when is it better to run vs hike, when to use poles, and what strength work is key for building your climbing legs. FULL-WAITLIST AVAILABLE
Thursday May 9th 6:15-8:15pm
Group Trail Run Clinics
I usually host a few trail run clinics in Toronto or the GTA each year. These sessions are typically 1.5-3hr in duration and very practical. There's no better way to learn the technical side of trail running than to practice right there in the forest. You can expect lots of tips and advice and on-the-spot feedback on your running style. It's also a great way to explore some new terrain.
Spring/Summer dates to be announced shortly.
Alternatively, you can gab a few friends and we can arrange your own private group session. Minimum of 4 and maximum of 12. A perfect way to spend a few hours in the trails! Please contact me if you are interested.
Pool Run Clinics
If you're a runner, you can benefit from knowing how to pool run! Pool running can be a great form of exercise for when you:
are frustrated with the crappy winter conditions and want to get in a good workout
are wanting to increase your running volume and intensity with minimal risk.
What to expect:
The first part involves a review on proper form and technique (with on the spot feedback) and tips on how to keep your hear rate elevated and stay motivated. The second half involves a mini workout, so prepare to get a little workout in. You then walk away with a handout that provides a summary of what we reviewed as well as suggested workouts.
