|Your feedback, comments, pictures and videos through your BRC member account. The more your coach knows about you the better the program fits your needs! Here are some sample pages form your online account:
Our coaches understand most of us are not professional runners. There are family, work, life restrictions that don't always allow us to workout where and how we want. That is not a problem! Each week you will simply communicate with your coach what needs to be considered for the following week, i.e. 'I can't run Sunday, can we move the long run to Sat?' or 'I'm traveling Tues and only have 30 minutes to run.'. If you communicate with your coach, your program should be easy to fit in with your life. All we ask is...
Your 100% commitment to becoming healthy, fit, and a better runner!
|Injury Prevention - With the right habits, runners can greatly increase their chances of training injury free!|
|Bio-mechanics - With the right fundamentals the act of running serves as a specific stimulus to promote running economy and efficiency.|
|Exertion Levels and Pacing - Avoid common mistakes by ensuring you are pushing yourself the right way at the right time.|
|Sports Psychology and Goal Setting - The body will follow the mind, so make sure you are pointed in the right direction.|
|Improving Athleticism - A great runner is a good athlete, able to handle different speeds, different terrain, and changes of direction with ease, resistant to fatigue, and while staying injury-free.|
|Flexibitity, Stability, and Strength - Being ready for your workouts takes more than rest. Make sure your musculo-skeletal system is stimulated, flexible, and powerful before each key workout.|
Initial Consultations are free to runners of all levels who may be interested in training under the Boston Running Center. An initial consultation is a 30-45 minute one-on-one meeting or phone call with a BRC running coach and entails a discussion of your running history and goals, an outline of how your training would proceed, and an opportunity to ask any questions you might have regarding the coaching and services available.
BRC's Weekly Coaching works similar to a gym membership, with an auto-withdrawal monthly fee. There is no minimum requirement, however, and runners can choose package options, a 4 or 12 month program, or simply the Weekly Coaching monthly service charge. Click the 'register' button below to see pricing. To design a program that works best for your needs we encourage you to schedule a free initial consultation (form above) or to contact us.
Beginner runners who want to become the best runners they can be, also have the option of following the fully-integrated Jogtorun training program designed by BRC Coach Joe McConkey.
This complete program, emphasizing injury-prevention, strength endurance, and speed development, is a 1 year program with day-to-day schedules that include both running workouts and running-specific strength & conditioning exercises. Email support is complimentary with the program.
