Interval Treadmill Workout for Winter Months

Do you love to run or are you getting ready for your Spring Marathons’? During the cold winter months it is hard to get a run in outdoors.  Here are some helpful treadmill tips and workouts to keep up your endurance and help you meet your running goals!

Tips:

Always run with a slight incline – Running on a slight incline, 1-3 grade, will simulate a more realistic runners gait.

Do not hold on to the handrail or console – Holding on to the handrail or console creates asymmetries in your stride creating increased susceptibility to injuries. Also holding on can suppress neurological health. During normal neurological development, your arms and legs develop an alternating “cross-crawl” pattern. This pattern stimulates healthy brain function along with optimizing your upright walking motion.

As you can see from my pictures and videos, being in great shape is more than just a lifestyle, it is my life! I have been a personal trainer and lifestyle couch for over 10 years, transforming people’s minds and bodies into works of art. I have helped overweight individuals, people that want to gain more lean body mass, fitness enthusiasts, athletes and physique competitors to meet their fitness goals. I have taken my passion for fitness and nutrition to a new level by providing hundreds of clients all over the world with individualized programs tailored to their goals.

My promise is to provide clients with tailored training and nutrition programs in order to help them achieve the physique they desire. For me, it’s more about fitting people with a program that fits their lifestyle, dietary preferences and goals; more so than having an expensive personal trainer at a gym that treats all their clients the same way.
