IMPROVE YOUR RUNNING PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP – MONDAY, MAY 13

Ever hit a slow mile because of persistent pain or discomfort? We’re teaming up with the fantastic clinicians at The Mobile Athlete to bring you an exciting opportunity!

Join us for the  ‘Improving Your Running Performance’ workshop powered by The Mobile Athlete: Physical Therapy + Performance!

Why is this a big deal?

The Mobile Athlete is not your average physical therapy clinic. We go beyond just treating your symptoms; we take a comprehensive approach to address the root cause of your issues. We get you out of pain and move you to peak performance. We’re excited to offer you a free workshop to experience the difference firsthand!

Here’s your chance!

During this 90 minute movement based workshop we will address mobility and stability limitations that limit running performance.  You will walk away with mobility and stability drills you can start right away to improve your performance.  

Here are the details

Monday, May 13, 2024 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM.
