Positive Energy Running Seminar

 

Village Runner is proud to work with Positive Energy and Erik Taylor’s Fitness to offer the South Bay‘s running community three free educational running seminars to get you started on the right foot in 2012!

Sean Ryan PT, owner of Positive Energy Physical Therapy and Motion Analysis, will discuss how hip weakness contributes to the two most common running injuries – patellofemoral pain syndrome and iliotibial band syndrome. Sean will detail how weakness leads to instability of the leg contributing to poor running mechanics.

Erik Taylor will demonstrate a smart approach to functional strength exercise for endurance athletes. During the seminar you will learn how to use functional exercise for fat loss, strength, and conditioning. Avoid injuries and maximize the benefits of your endurance training with this approach to fitness.

Village Runner will discuss how we evaluate your gait and make proper shoe recommendations to meet different running needs.
