Mobility and Recovery For Runners

Planning to run the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon on October 9, 2016? Or are you a runner who is looking to help correct common mobility issues?

Whether you run every day, after the bus or are looking to get back into it - this class is for you. We will focus on common mobility problems for runner that affect running positions, cause pain or injury and limit your time on the feet.

In this class we look at soft tissue for runners, recovery after a run or race and mobility work to incorporate on a regular or as needed basis.


Mobility issues happen to us all! The Power House at Highland also provides Midline and Mobility classes weekly to keep your body at peak performance.

Midline & Mobility is an active recovery class that focuses on engaging your core to support mobility throughout your body, as well as lengthen and decompress your spine.

Our Midline & Mobility work pulls from the bodies of knowledge from yoga, classical Pilates, and mobilitywod, and we focus on mobilizing the entire body through movement. Pilates elements will work on flexing and extending throughout the body while developing more core capacity. The yoga and mobilitywod-style pieces will identify trigger points and inflexibility and provides movements and exercises to correct them.

Adding this class into your weekly training is a necessary for working on mobility issues, past injuries, and developing awareness in a low impact way that is beneficial to all athletes and lifters. We will pay special attention to developing a practice that benefits healthy shoulders, a healthy spine and core strength- all things critical to sport performance and CrossFit."
