We are very excited to introduce the inaugural DogTown CrossFit Endurance Program! This program will currently focus on running (with the possibility of adding biking and swimming in the future). An Endurance program at DogTown has been something the coaches have been planning for some time. We feel the time is finally right to launch our own Endurance program, and we are very excited to offer it to the members of DogTown!
The DT Endurance Program is designed to teach members the fundamentals of proper running mechanics. The first goal is to reduce injury (shin splints, knee aches, back pain, etc.). The second goal is to increase running efficiency. By learning proper running technique (breaking down your form and incorporating our Endurance drills) will lead to better finishing times during your CrossFit workouts.
Our Endurance program at DogTown will follow the same core principles of CrossFit; constantly varied, functional movements, performed at a high intensity. By participating in the DT Endurance program, you will get more efficient at running, and simultaneously reduce your training volume.
Remember, running is a skill. Just as a power clean or a pull up is a skill. It must be learned. And learned correctly.
