ADULT RUN CREW
Road, trail, triathlon, track . . .
Team Practices are a great way to meet other Toronto runners, socialized, and get in a great workout while having fun! We believe team work makes the dream work, and that fun is an integral part of longevity in sport and exercise.
Team Practices always begin with mobility and activation to prepare the body to run, and have a strong technical aspect where coaches can give direct feedback and help improve running form and efficiency.
The General Membership includes x2 practices/week and all BDAC events!
Team Practices will run between the Riverdale Park East track and Central Tech Stadium on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30pm.
For Winter training, practices are held in the Monarch Park Stadium Dome at 5:45pm
Our Personal Coaching includes:
Proper running volume builds and intensity workouts geared specifically towards your goal
Mobility & activation warm-ups to prepare the body
Technical drills to improve running efficiency,
Strength workouts specific to runners.
Team Practices and events.
Weekly check-ins with your coach during which program adjustments can be made to better fit your training progress.
Working with our coaches through a complete and holistic program, you will feel your best in running and in life!
With a strong background in track & field, kinesiology, and strength & conditioning, our philosophy is built around quality training.
To us, quality is the foundation that all training should be built upon to optimize running performance, minimize the risk of injury, and ultimately fully enjoy the process. As professionals in the running industry it is our purpose to bring knowledge and awareness of a complete and holistic training program to runners, teaching them the tools for success in their running journey.
These tools are established through our 3 Training Tenants, encompassing effective preparation before all run sessions, developing running skills, and improving speed and endurance. These Training Tenants drive our coaching and programming both in Team Practices and Personalized Coaching.
Our Training Tenants
Preparing the body to run through mobilizing and activating joints and muscles that have been sedentary most of the day sets us up for success in our sessions.
From our background in track & field and kinesiology, we know there is a strong skill component to running, just like any sport! By learning to run and developing that skill, we can run faster and more efficiently, ultimately feeling greater ease in our stride and minimizing our risk of injury.
One of the biggest components adult runners lack in their own running is an element of speed & strength! It is essential to develop our overall speed and strength to improve our power output when running, effectively raising our running potential. This makes all other paces easier and more sustainable, and opens us up to new PR's!
