Starting next week on Tuesdays and Thursdays we will be offering a dynamic strength training class in the mornings at 6:15am. We are very excited to be welcoming back our former General Manager and good friend Wayne Earney to lead these classes. Wayne has worked with athletes at every level and is very excited for this opportunity to be back at the store. I took some time to chat with Wayne to get a little more information to share with all of you about these great classes.

What should folks expect at the strength class at 605 Running Company? “We will be attempting to get the runners bodies back in balance. Running is mainly straight ahead, so we will be doing movements in all planes of motion. We will specifically be focusing on the hips, feet, and core. This class will be great for all types of runners.”
Do participants need to bring anything specific to class? “The store has mats available, but if folks would like to bring their own mat that is great. This time of year, a clean pair of indoor shoes would be good to so we don’t mess up the store too much. I remember how much fun that floor is to mop.”
When you and I sat down to discuss adding a class you mentioned twice a week would be best for runners. Explain why. “Runners tend to push themselves too often. The same pattern gets overloaded every day. Run-rest-repeat. I believe that meeting twice a week will be effective enough to make positive changes while not overtraining the body.”
