    Commercials, Mirrors and Hills - Make Tread Time, Not Dread Time

    Our EDGE Coaches weigh in on how to turn your treadmill session into the ultimate training tool: ROCK YOUR TUNES
    (Coach Chris): I encourage my athletes to make a killer up-tempo playlist, or to make a playlist that they can match tempo to - like 2 faster upbeat songs and one slower (not like ballad... maybe a power ballad?) and match effort. MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL
    (Coach Robyn): Tread time means form time. Use mirrors and windows to monitor form – careful not to crowd the front of the treadmill and aim for left-to-right symmetry. Take a form check at the top of every mile for 30-60s – the efficiencies you develop will carry over to the rest of your run. ....

From Thanksgiving to New Years, the average person consumes an additional 500 calories per day, which can lead to an extra 2-3 pounds per week. You also may experience dehydration due to the increased dry heat and decrease in water intake, which can make you feel tired and sluggish. We all know this time of year comes around, but we never prepare ourselves for its arrival. So here are my tips on how to survive the holidays and still stay on track of your goals.

  • 7 Reasons You Should be Doing Pull Ups

    Coach Shawna is a believer in the Power of the Pull Up for all Athletes. Here’s why: 1) Strengthen Your Grip
    . Stronger hands mean stronger forearms, better coordination and control when lifting weights, controlling a bike or even typing. You also never know when you might fall over the side of a cliff and need to pull yourself back up :) 2) Improve Posture.
    Keeping your body upright and neutral keeps lungs open, helps you breathe better, keeps shoulders from rounding/hunching and reduces soreness in upper back and neck. 3) Build Core Strength
    . Your core is what keeps you upright when your body is in motion. Remember that first ....
