Step into fast & pain-free running with RunSmart strength training.
Runners prefer to run. This is something RunSmart founder Steve Gonser knows all too well. “In my Physical Therapy practice,” he says, “I find that most running injuries result from poor form or inadequate strength.”
“Knowing this, I built RunSmart with injury prevention in mind, offering a full suite of runner-specific strength and flexibility programs designed to not only prevent injury but enhance speed and endurance. If you want to run consistently and pain-free, strength training is a must.”
How does RunSmart Strength Training work?
Adding strength training to your running routine is the best way to protect your muscles, joints, and tendons from injury. RunSmart Strength programs are:
Built on runner-specific movements
Our programs are designed to strengthen chains of muscle groups that are essential for fast & injury-free running. Strengthening chains saves you time over traditional isolation exercises, like clamshells, and carry over to the road better. By targeting your core, balance, and glutes, you’re targeting the root of most problems.
Suitable for all fitness levels
RunSmart training programs can be adapted to any fitness level. RunSmart 10 and Base3 are perfect for new runners and those getting back into fitness. If you’re more experienced, jump right in to BaseSix Bootcamp and you will feel the burn!
Effective at 1-2 sessions per week
Most workouts are 30 minutes or less, making them easy to squeeze into busy schedules. Programs are video-format and simple to follow from home or work on your phone, tablet, computer, or TV!
