Meet Your Run Club Coaches
Kevin is also a huge yoga enthusiast and has been practicing yoga for 5 years, mostly Hatha Vinyasa and some Yin Yoga. Bikram/Hot Yoga is one more his more favorite styles as he has noticed how the hot yoga classes has helped him with his endurance and flexibility. In May 2004, Coach Kevin won the Bikram yoga challenge by going to yoga every day consecutively for 30 days.
"Practicing yoga has kept me injury free, while training for marathons. My running time have improved dramatically, and I believe the addition of yoga into my training has gotten me to Boston 3 times. I believe yoga and running is the perfect combination. It works for me and other athletes, and I know it will work for you." ~Coach Kevin
Amanda has coupled her running with TRX and Yoga. TRX trains provides strength and endurance for all of her obstacle races, while yoga has upped her game 100%! She has better blood flow throughout her body, which has reduced the cramping. She finds that her improved flexibility in mind and body is clutch for mental determination to finish the long distance runs.
"I JUST FELT LIKE RRRRRRRUUUUUUUNNNNNNING!" ~Amanda
