Adult Strength for Endurance Athletes


The Adult Strength for Endurance Athletes program will primarily focus on building a solid base for nordic skiing, running, and other endurance sports by utilizing body weight movements, barbells, free weights, and plyometrics. Participants will learn to use correct technique for movements through hands on instruction. Also, a large focus for the sessions will be mobility and movement mechanics.

This will be a beneficial course to improve your overall performance for endurance sports, whether you are new to strength or have been doing it for years.

Ski season can get pretty busy, especially if you are racing often.  If you want to keep working on strength, mobility, and injury prevention, you can join Coach Cara Battles, virtually, an hour each week for strength sessions. Workouts will be emailed out with a video link on a weekly basis, every Sunday. Do the workout on your own schedule at home, anytime during the week! There will be limited equipment needed – bands, a stable step 12-16 inches tall, and weighted backpack (10-20lbs). Each workout is between 50-75min, depending on the time of the winter season.
