Core-Strength-Power Group Training

  • Join expert Coach Bill Leach for this small group training program designed to strengthen the body's "core" - that is, the muscles of the hips, abdomen, back, and torso.

  • Runners of all ability and fitness levels will get results and have fun with this program.

  • This small group training program is limited to 10 participants per session, providing you with the opportunity to interact with your coach on a personal level.
