Challenge your body—don’t punish it.
On our best running days, the ground flies beneath our feet, and we feel fast and powerful, but on those days we may only be enjoying a brief respite between our last injury and our next.
Too often inflammation and pain forces runners off the roads and into a doctor’s office. Along the way they learn a new language, picking up terms like patella tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, iliotibial band syndrome. On our worst days, we may fear that our days of easy, pain-free running are over forever.
Jeff Horowitz is a certified running, cycling and triathlon coach and a personal trainer who has run more than 175 marathons and ultra-marathons across six continents. He believes that running can be painfree; that being hurt is not the inevitable result of running.
By carefully and purposefully implementing a more balanced training program, Jeff helps runners return to the roads, teaching them how to adopt a more healthful and sustainable mode of training for a lifetime of injury-free running and racing.
Jeff’s method is grounded in his three decades of running and coaching experience, as well as on the latest research. He presents a targeted, specific approach to training that closes the gaps in a run-only program. His approach incorporates cross training to maintain and expand fitness while working opposing muscle groups, core training to provide a solid foundation from which proper running form can be maintained, and strength training to develop better balance, posture, and overall health.
Jeff’s method doesn’t rely on expensive equipment or a gym membership; he helps runners easily implement a targeted, purposeful, multifaceted program that enables them to get healthy, stay healthy, and pursue their training and racing goals.
