Reach a New Running PB this year!

ELM will be offering our second and final 6-week Need for Speed RunningClinic of the season beginning January 2nd, 2014. This specialized running clinic, led by coach and Kinesiologist Sarah Seads, is for any runner who has a desire to improve their running fitness, skill or speed. This clinic includes weekly coached training sessions designed to improve technique, speed and strength as well as education and support in creating a personalized training plan for the coming year.


Runners who think that more mileage and longer hours are the only ways to improve often end up frustrated or sidelined with injuries. Making small but specific changes in strength, flexibility, technique, and program design will help you reach a new level of performance and without nearly as much effort.” Sarah Seads

Runners will also learn the benefits of mid-foot running technique and how to incorporate barefoot running into their training programs along with the key training principles for program design, heart rate training, injury prevention and fuel for optimal performance.

Immediately following Need for Speed, ELM is also offering their popular Yoga for Athletes class instructed by Birgit Nilson. This class is specifically designed to address muscular imbalances and release tired, overworked muscles and tissues. This yoga class is the perfect compliment to an active fitness program.

These programs take place on Thursday evenings with Need for Speed from 5:30-7:00pm and Yoga for Runners from 7:05-8:00pm following the run. Participants may register for one or both as space allows. For more information or to register before the December 31st deadline, go towww.elmhealth.com.
