This Monday! XC starts

Running in college this fall?
You have a summer program from your college coach.
But you may not have hurdles (hip flexibility), medicine balls and kettle bells (upper body flexibility and power), mini-bands, and guided plyometric drills. And you may not have the urge to do the hard core work that sculpts your body to compete.
Worst of all, you don't have a couple dozen other college runners to work with this summer.
Unless you join the GTD xc program.

Running in high school this fall?
Same as "running in college this fall" except you will be training with 100 other xc runners.

This Monday! All-Sports starts

Playing soccer this fall? Field hockey? Football?
You may be doing a camp for your sport. That's great.
Are you working on your agility, quickness, explosiveness, strength, balance?
Are you sculpting your athletic body with serious core work?
Your competitors probably are.

If you live anywhere in the North Shore, the GTD Speed & Conditioning program gives you the edge -- circuits, core, plyometrics, and endurance conditioning.

We encourage athletes to participate with their teammates to take advantage of guided drills that work on quickness, flexibility, balance, strength, and endurance.

Read comments about the program from Hayley Dowd and Jonathan Luders.

Dates -- Monday,, Wednesday, Friday mornings, July 10 - August 13
Time -- 9am to 10:30am
Location -- Bishop Fenwick High School

Personal Coaching with Coach Braz

Registration for the Spring Seasonal Coaching Program (program 1) with Fernando Braz is still available. The program began on April 17 and continues for 15 weeks to the end of July.

Registration Form

The program is designed for runners who have a specific racing goal, or a series of races to prepare for, or want to build or maintain their running fitness. Runners receive a written, 15-week outline that is targeted to their level and goal. The outline includes a weekly track session that may be done at a site convenient to the runner, or with Coach Braz on Tuesday evenings at the Beverly High School track.

Runners may register at any time for Coach Braz's one-on-one coaching program (program 2).

What's the difference between Seasonal Coaching (program 1) and One-on-One Coaching (program 2)?
Program 1 provides a training outline for the spring, fall, or winter season.
Program 2 provides one-on-one coaching from Coach Braz on a daily and weekly basis.
For more information, go to Program Options and FAQs.
