Fitness Runs classes
The Fitness Run
The Fitness Run 2.0
Run + Yoga
The Original Fitness Runs class starts with our signature dynamic warm-up, followed by long running intervals along the river, broken-up by strength and cardio drills every 2/3 minute or 14mile (depending on class), each designed to work key areas of the body that improve running performance, balance upper and lower body strength. Yoga-inspired running stretches wind-down each class and minimize injury risk. Classes will begin and end at the same starting point.
The Fitness Run 2.0 classes have a more traditional format. We start with our signature dynamic drills to warm you up, then we run the entire class to a location (depending on location of class) do an intense 30/35 minute strength and drills class and then run back to the location you started. Light stretching and cool down at the end.
The new RUN + YOGA format combines an intense 30 minute cardio burst of running drills, followed by a 30 minute yoga format designed specifically for runners that infuses strength and flexibility exercises, which are critical for optimizing your body’s performance. Expert running coaching and yoga instruction are on-hand to ensure proper technique and inspiration throughout this combo class!
Our unique yoga program specifically for runners, cyclists and athletes to help you perform at your best. Whether you’re an average runner to elite runner or a competitive cyclist to a 3x a week soul cycle or flywheel fan we can help you perform at your best!
Why Fitness Runs Works
Since you are working out at a very high intensity, your body will have to work much harder to keep it up. This will cause your heart to pump fast and your metabolism to jump, which you want if you are planning on losing fat. Your metabolism will stay at that high not only during the workout, but after the workout as well. This means that your body will be burning fat for hours after.
