Running Performance 101 starts next week.

In collaboration with Run with Coach D. We've got some great content to share so sign up while spots are available.

Running 101 Course! ⁠

Do you ever look at high level runners and think, "how do they do it?"⁠

Obviously, they worked hard and practiced to get there.⁠

But they demonstrate excellent mechanics; their running is efficient, wasted movement is kept to a minimum, their feet seem like they barely touch the ground. Their running FEELS LIGHT.⁠

Did you know your running can feel like that too?⁠

Now's your chance with our Running 101 Course; led by Coach Nate and Danielle Hirt from @runwithcoachd!⁠

The program starts Tuesday, April 13th. Get more information and sign up below!

Do you ever wonder how high level runners seemingly never get tired?⁠

Do you ever look at a competitive runner's times and think to yourself: how is this possible?⁠

Obviously, they worked hard and practiced to get there.⁠

But more interestingly, they demonstrate very good mechanics.⁠

Their running is efficient, wasted movement is kept to a minimum, their feet seem like they barely touch the ground. Their running FEELS LIGHT.⁠

Did you know your running can feel like that too?⁠

No, you don't achieve that by inserting 8" pillow insoles inside your shoes. That's not the kind of light we're talking about.⁠

You achieve that by practicing specific running skills: pulling, falling, landing. You get experienced coaches to analyze your running gait and give you concrete steps to improve it. You baseline your capacity and you increase it in smart manageable increments. In a matter of a few weeks, you'll see change.⁠

And now you have the opportunity to do just that with our Running Performance 101 course. Led by Coach Nate and Coach Danielle Hirt from @runwithcoachd (also our very own SAFN community member!), this 6-week program will take you from step 0 and teach you the foundation for efficient and pain-free running. No more cringing when you see a 400m run in a class workout, it's time to unleash your inner runner.⁠

The program starts on Tuesday April 13th. Click on the link below, get more information, sign up, be awesome.⁠

Simple and effective. Decided to break out the weight vest today. I haven’t trained with it in a long time. My workout originally have box jump overs programmed, but I don’t have a plyo box available in my “home gym”. Had to make do with weighted kneeling jumps. And instead of taking off the vest for the sandbag hang power cleans, decided to keep it on. Made for a very 🌶 🏋️‍♂️.

The Importance of Platform Coaching Demeanor

Great article by Coach Bob Takano. The concepts he discusses applies to all coaches, not just weightlifting coaches. The job of the coach is to keep the athlete focused on the task. Save the celebrations for after the medal ceremony or workout. The demeanor of the coach can be very impactful on the performance of the athlete. Avoid the pitfalls.


Aerobic Capacity Course - Developing Different Gears

I'm coaching an Endurance Program at CF South Arlington this summer for those that are interested. Details in the link below.

Building aerobic capacity is a goal of the CFSA Running Program. It is designed to help develop different “gears” for you to tackle Endurance AND CrossFit workouts. Whether it’s repeat 400s, 1 mile time trial or a 20 minute metcon, the Running Program will give you the tools to identify your maximum sustainable pace. Sign up for the 8-week program to learn more:

Currently developing a "boot camp" program at CrossFit South Arlington to help prepare soldiers for the Army Combat Fitness Test. Here's a preview of what's expected in the new test.

For the first time in nearly 40 years, the United States Army is changing how it measures the physical fitness of its soldiers.

This is what is takes to pass the new Army Combat Fitness Test.

The next cycle of Iron Strong is here!

If you're in the Arlington area and want to move some iron. Metal. Chalk. Muscle. Sweat. A focused mind determined to move iron. A relentless desire to not back down from any physical challenge.


Even on a treadmill you can use the Pose Method to run efficiently. You should always use the incline to set your “fall” angle. This is also a great way for pace and cadence practice.

Body weight is on the ball of the foot. Knees stay bent on landing and at the pull...never a straight leg. Pulling foot up into pose. Relaxed ankle throughout.

You don’t need much equipment to get a good workout. Sure it’s great to have a gym with all the bells and whistles, but it really just boils down to getting work done regardless of the setting. No excuses, just an attitude of wanting to stay fit. It’s simple, but effective.

Thanks @streetparking for the workout inspiration of kettlebell swings and step ups. And thanks Rogue for the awesome kettlebell.

Doing treadmill intervals at 5,312ft above sea level. This is one way to develop aerobic capacity. Although a treadmill isn’t the ideal method to work on my #posemethodrunning it does allow me to work pace and learning the feeling of that pace...even though I’m sucking wind at this elevation.

[CHICAGO MARATHON 2018] —————————————————-My 5th timing running the grueling distance of 26.2 and it proved to be as hard as the first. Battled through cold temps, rain, wind, and a hell of a leg cramp at mile 20. •That couldn’t stop me from a Personal Best |03:53:10|

•This race I set a goal of running a race injury free. Thankful for finding a #PoseMethod running coach (@the_perfect_pull) who quickly corrected my foot strike and then led a CrossFit Endurance based training of low-mileage, high intensity 14-week program. Injury free and setting a Personal Best gives me a lot to look forward to. Running is a skill that needs to continue to be practiced. ——————————————————
