For over 20 years, long before I began working as a personal trainer, I competed in trail running and cross-country ski races. I love seeing how hard I can push my body. With over 200 races under my belt at distances from 5 km to 103 km, I know what it takes to be competitive.
Strength training is just as important for endurance athletes as aerobic fitness. Whether you’re a runner, cyclist, triathlete or alpine or nordic skier. Strength training will increase stamina, enabling you to maintain your form deeper into a race. It’ll give you a bigger finishing kick, and it will reduce injury risk.
