REI Minimalist Footwear Clinic & POSE on TRAIL Clinic

Last night I joined POSE coaches Valerie Hunt and Dr. Mike Maggio at REI downtown for a small presentation on minimalist footwear, natural running and form.We had an excellent crowd of about 50 people show up, and everyone seemed very interested and happy to participate in the clinic.Mike and Valerie did an excellent job with their POSE method presentation, they showed some video and and taught a few different form exercises. I am very excited to go train with them, while my form might not be the worst, it needs a lot of work and it only makes sense to analyze and repair any flaws.

I recently began coaching Speed + Agility Classes for Tejas Trails. The format is exciting, challenging and brings a different aspect to training on trails.
A training program that focuses on getting you faster and more agile on trail. The intent is on speed and is appropriate for all levels of ability. For the novice, this will get you up to speed. For the veteran, this will get you tuned with workout drills on trail.
I have a fun and challenging format that is designed to improve your efficiency in moving along all types of trail conditions. Each class will have a specific topic such as Mud, Rocks, Flats, Downhill, Uphill, Scrambles, Balance, Speed etc..
Agility combined with speed allows you to run the roughest of trails with skill. Workouts will last 1 to 2 hours every Tuesday on the roughest trails in Austin
