Our Functional Strength class develops “useful” strength, or the type of strength that makes you faster and healthier. The first part of each class is spent activating small muscle groups and increasing joint mobility. Then, large muscle groups are targeted and strengthened. The result is a one-two punch that maximizes energy output and strengthens the muscles surrounding common injury sites.
Why Functional Strength for Runners?
"This class addresses the "little things" that I neglect on my own. They make me stronger and more flexible." – P.O.
"It's amazing how 45 minutes of simple (well they look simple), functional exercises can help your running. I have used these classes in conjunction with my running/training schedule over the last 2 years." – M.S.
"I had run 12 marathons before training and taking classes at Fleet Feet. I noticed a huge difference in my running efficiency and was able to overcome plantar fasciitis in large part because of Hip Mobility and Functional Strength. I not only PR's with a 3:33 at Boston, but I also felt great for the full 26.2 miles (something I had never previously experienced)." – M.A.
