RACE TRAINING SERIES

Sundays 1:15 - 2:30 pm | AUGUST 12 - SEPTEMBER 16, 2018

Do you have your eye on an upcoming half marathon? Do you struggle with sticking to your training plan? Do you want to improve your technique and performance, and learn to avoid injury and reduce pain?

Running 21.1KM is no small feat. Whether it is your first or tenth race, every runner has a goal to improve time, or prevent injury, or feel stronger during the race. Most runners are comfortable with the idea or practice of gradually increasing mileage over the course of a training program, but there is more to performance than just running. Cross training, intervals, mobility, nutrition, and mindset all play an important role in your race day performance.

The 6-week CrushCamp Race Training Series is the first cross-training program dedicated to runners. Each 75-minute session will include a 60-minute interval workout designed specifically to strengthen the muscles needed for running, followed by 15 minutes of rolling, mobility, and stretches, customized to the needs of the group.

WHAT YOU WILL GET:

Custom 1/2 Marathon training plan, including group runs and at-home workouts
Six weeks of individualized training and accountability with community experts
Two optional group runs per week
Six 60-minute group cross-training classes designed specifically for runners
Weekly mobility sessions with take-home exercises
Mobility release ball
Physio loop band
Online team support and training group
Option to add discounted CrushCamp group classes and/or Personal Training

TOTAL INVESTMENT: $150 + GST (CRUSHCAMP members SAVE 10%)

Registration for the full series is now closed, but we have opened two spaces per week as a single drop-in.

The Race Training Series was super motivating. I was needing something to help me out of the long winter we had, and back onto the road again. I was struggling to fall back in love with running, and somehow this series did it for me. I made a commitment to myself to attend regardless of how hard I may find it. And in the end, I felt strong(ish)! and successful. Thank you Rachel and Emily. I loved it! I hope you do another. (Also, thank you for the treat bag. I use my water bottle, blue mobility ball and exercise band all the time)

RESOURCES

These mobility, nutrition, and training resources have been created specifically for the Race Training program, to give you the guidance you need to crush your goals, both in and out of the studio.


THE RACE CREW

 RACHEL HALL  Wrapped up in that small but mighty package is a powerhouse both in strength and smarts. This UofC Varsity wrestler lives and breathes health and wellness, and is coming to us from years of personal training and group fitness coaching. Rachel also doubles as our Training Lead bringing  such depth in knowledge to the table. Just like many of us, Rachel turned to cross training to supplement sport and ultimately feed her soul: “through injuries, mid terms and break ups working out was my go to stress reliever, I knew I wanted an excuse to be able to workout always.”  Known for sneakily (but safely) getting you to that next level, Rachel is all about concrete technique while cracking the odd joke or five. Count on walking out with a couple of personal bests and all of the high fives.    Vibe:  A good remix of the oldies but goodies. Something you can sing along to, groove to and of course sweat it out to.   Currently Crushing:  Right now I am working on learning how to take care of myself, what are my limits, how much sleep do I need at night and what foods make me feel energetic? All questions I am taking the time to work out with the help of other professionals in my field, books and quiet time.     And I quote:    “ Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
