About this workshop

The CORE™ Program is all about training intelligently and focusing on form, execution and excellence in coaching and cueing. Distance running demands not only endurance, but tremendous amounts of lower body stability, strength and power, balanced upper body strength and enduring core stability and strength. This workshop, created by the Merrithew™ team, builds on the knowledge learned in Level 1 and features a dynamic functional warm up to prepare the body for performance, improve joint stability and mobility and enhance running efficiency. Then, targeted exercises will develop upper body, lower body and core stability and strength to improve power production. Finally, jump training and plyometrics will work on power, work capacity and agility.
