Why you need a trail running specific program

Trail running is unique. It involves the whole use of your mind and body to move efficiently over constantly varied and ever changing terrain. This calls for a specific kind of training: one that reflects a dynamic environment and teaches you to be adaptable.

TRAINING METHODOLOGY THAT WORKS

Jen has multiple international wins and a 12-year endurance coaching career under her belt. Having worked with over 1000 athletes, Jen's training methods have been tried and tested.

COMPREHENSIVE STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH

It's like having multiple trainers all in one. The program includes daily running schedules, strength, prehab and stretching routines, instructional videos, nutrition guides, and goal setting worksheets.
