The Formula for Success
When most people use the words running and performance in the same sentence, images of speed and podium finishes come up. We think that’s a very limited use of the word, and we’re here to set the record straight and give “performance” some room to breathe.Performance
Conditioning is all about toning your muscles and strengthening structurally weak areas in your body. When you run correctly you naturally strengthen the muscles that provide support while relaxing muscles no longer needed for propulsion.Conditioning
ChiRunning is based in a centuries-old principle from T’ai Chi: shift your workload to the core muscles. This allows your leg muscles to do less, and the lower leg muscles to do almost nothing.Technique
