Most runners “just run” and end up plateauing or, even worse, injured on the sideline.
Most runners don't use systems to promote health and consistent speed. They may do a long run here, a random interval workout there, maybe (or maybe not) a visit to the gym, or do an arbitrary training they read in a magazine without putting it all together. But there’s no cohesion to their training. They just…run.
Random training will always result in random results and most likely, an injured and frustrated runner.
That might sound familiar to you...
The Balanced Athlete provides a runner-specific strength training and runner-specific yoga program specifically designed to help you achieve maximum performance in your running all while keeping you injury-free.
As runners, we have specific needs that must be addressed. If we do random boot camp workouts or the casual CrossFit WOD (workout of the day), we're not being specific to our sport.
When we DO get specific, the results are incredible!
"Kristi entered my life at the beginning of my running journey four years ago. Having only run a 5k, I was not mentally or physically prepared to tackle any longer distance races. Kristi made my training challenging, but incredibly fun, and I am so grateful for her consistent, positive feedback and encouragement. She helped discover the athlete in me I never knew, and I'm proud to say I ran my first marathon exactly one year after my first ever 5k! I own much of that success to Kristi. She retrained my attitude, while I retrained my body. Thank you, Kristi, for the expertise, patience, and genuine kindness you bring to your coaching everyday. You are simply the best, and your passion for running is absolutely contagious!" - Karen M.
"Kristi is not only an amazing trainer but a truly beautiful person inside and out. She is authentic, empathetic, hardcore, and inspirational - a combination that is so rare to find in a single individual. I am far from a marathon runner, but she reminded me the importance of believing in myself and helped me run an 8K in 4 weeks." - Nicole B.
"Kristi brought an enthusiasm and electricity to running workouts that I have never felt before and not felt since she moved. I still miss running bleachers and intervals with her and the running group. She made me feel like I could do anything. She made me smile while doing the hard work. I improved dramatically, and more importantly I grew to love the sport even more." -Barrett C.
