Applying the CORE Principles, this workshop developed by the team at Merrithew, emphasizes the importance of proper biomechanics to progress athletes appropriately to achieve their goals quickly and effectively. Guiding a distance runner through movement training will improve performance by increasing movement efficiency, adding hip and pelvic stability throughout the running motion and providing a foundation of core stability and strength from which power and endurance can be developed. Participants will be able to apply athletic conditioning concepts to help runners meet the demands of the sport, decrease the incidence of injuries and improve performance.
