Amplify Endurance

Amplify Endurance

Amplify Endurance is a specialized running and endurance sports training program dedicated to improving performance, fitness, and endurance for sports potential and race preparation.  It can also be an ideal compliment to anyone’s generalized CrossFit training.

Endurance training is an excellent program for local athletes looking to shave times or simply for those of you looking to fine tune your run mechanics. It will focus primarily on running, but can also be applied to biking and swimming as well.

Amplify Endurance will focus on biomechanics, injury prevention, and mileage/programming implementation. We focus on quality of training, not quantity.

The mechanics of running technique might change your perception of running. It makes running safer and more efficient. Think about it, if you’re good at something, you like to do it!

Amplify Endurance:

  • Aims to reduce impact on hips, knees, and ankles
  • Looks to dramatically improve training and racing performance
  • Gives you a competitive edge
  • Helps prevent injuries
  • Helsp you lose orthotics for good
  • Helps you enjoy your running for the rest of your life

The Amplify Endurance coaching is done remotely.  Much of the work and workouts are done on your own time; the program meets the needs of busy personal schedules.

We will set up to meet for an evaluation and discussion of goals and Amplify Endurance, and also create a remote coaching program that will utilize online discussions. Times and data will drive workouts and recovery.  Our website, email, and social media will serve as “meeting places” where post-workout interaction can take place.

Workout groups may also become available for those looking to train with others.  These will depend on interest and personal schedules.

Amplify members will tie the Endurance coaching into their monthly membership. Non-members are welcome as well. Cost is dependent on level of coaching involved.

Contact Scott at scott@crossfitamplify.com to get started.

More on CrossFit Endurance

Power and speed are critical components to success in the CrossFit and Endurance world.  With careful planning, overall strength and conditioning increases these two mainstays of performance while decreasing recovery time, reducing injury, promoting preservation of lean tissue and creating a more sustainable performance curve.

In CrossFit Endurance we focus on eliminating unnecessary volume of training while increasing intensity.  Our programming is structured, sport-specific and seamlessly integrated with Olympic lifts, powerlifting, gymnastics movements, explosive activity and mobility-based support. Everything we do focuses on midline stabilization and working from inside to out. Our strength and conditioning approach for endurance athletes is unparalleled.  We incorporate the CrossFit fundamentals of being constantly varied.  Repetition is the enemy and results in a decreased ability to build fitness.

Long slow duration results in athletes being less powerful, less lean and more prone to injury, low energy and abbreviated sports longevity.   CrossFit Endurance Training will make you faster….will make you leaner…. will increase your power….and will make your lungs burn.  But, it will make you happy!

Eat clean, train like a freak and make every meter and every rep mean something.  We don’t have time to waste time; we do have time to accelerate ability. Simply put… the CrossFit Endurance Program has revolutionized endurance training.
