Strength

The right strength-training program has benefits far beyond lean muscle gains. A strong body has better endurance, fewer injuries, lower body-fat percentage, better insulin-sensitivity, and higher antioxidant status. 

Strength training plays a key role in every fitness program customized at RunFit. We incorporate body-weight exercises for those who wish to achieve better muscle tone, added weight-bearing exercises for those looking to increase muscle mass, and high-intensity/high-repetition exercises for those who wish to prepare their muscles for endurance activities.

At the heart of each strength program at RunFit is core training. Beyond abdominal work, we focus on the muscles of the upper back, lower back, and chest in order to establish proper posture that serves you well during bouts of endurance activity.
