Q: "Where is your facility located?"
A: I operate out of Crux Chiropractic on East Capitol Drive in Shorewood, Wisconsin.
Q: "I do not live near you in Wisconsin but I'm still very interested in the program. Can I sign-up?"
A: Yes, of course! The RunStrong program is designed for runners who are motivated and simply need to be guided through this process. With the use of technology this has become very easy. The coaching app helps us stay closely connected and I use Zoom to conduct the onboarding process/evaluation and any additional check-in sessions. Regardless of where you live, the attention you will receive is top notch!
Q: "Are there different sign-up options for the RunStrong Challenge so I can make sure it's the best for me?"
A: The RunStrong Challenge consists (3) different tiers to best fit your needs. Whether you want to complete the entire training plan on your own or add in-person sessions, I've got you covered! EVERY single participant is set-up for success as the program is individualized to your needs and availability.
Q: "I might have a few friends who are also interested in joining me. Do you have a referral discount if we all sign-up together?"
A: This program would be so much fun with the accountability and motivation from friends! I do have a referral discount that is available to you. Please contact me directly and we can talk about how that works.
Q: "When does the challenge actually start?"
A: The first day of the challenge is Monday, January 16th. However, if you complete the onboarding process before then I will create your program and you can get started so we can have more time to work together.
Q: "Is it better to sign-up quickly or will there still be room if I wait a few days?"
A: Registration for this program will close on Wednesday, January 11th at 11:59pm. If you are undecided on whether or not this program is a fit for you then you are more than welcome to schedule a call with me so we can discuss more. I cannot guarantee that the program won't fill up so there's always the chance that you miss out. Remember, this program comes with a 100% money back guarantee. If for some crazy reason it's not for you or you're not seeing results, I will refund you. Although, this has never happened before due to how much I cater every detail to your needs.
Q: "How do I complete the running analysis if I'm not local to you?"
A: The majority of my remote running clients complete a running analysis before we start working together and at different points throughout the process. It's actually very simple... If you have access to a treadmill, I'll give you instructions on how to have a friend or family member record the correct views so I can analyze your running in my slow motion software.
Don't have access to a treadmill? No worries! I'll give instructions on how to record videos of you running outside that are also easily analyzed within my software.
Once the videos are recorded, I'll provide you with a link so you can upload them directly to me. From there it usually takes me 30-60 minutes to analyze your running and create still photos as well as a video analysis so everything is clearly explained to you. We usually discuss the findings on a follow-up call so you understand what form adjustments need to be made moving forward.
Q: "What if I don't have access to equipment to complete the exercises?"
A: Like I mentioned before, and the great thing about this program, everything is 100% individualized. Whether you have access to a gym, full workout room at home, or not a single piece of equipment, the program will be designed to your needs. Of course, equipment is helpful. But it's not needed to become a better runner!
Q: "I have been struggling with an injury and I'm curious if this program will help me and what your qualifications are to deal with that?"
A: My background is in athletic training/sports medicine and I have worked in a variety of sports medicine settings before branching out on my own. This includes professional sports, college athletics, high school athletics, and I have also done rotations at the United States Olympic Training Center and Boston Marathon within the medical tent. I hold state licensure and national certification to evaluate and treat orthopedic injuries and specialize specifically in running-related injuries.
In terms of this program, the on-boarding process allows us to complete a consultation, thorough evaluation, and determine if it's the right fit for you. If at any point we decide it's not ideal, I will provide details on other options or set you up with another healthcare provider. The majority of runners I work with approach me currently suffering from an injury or history of injuries and we work to address that within the individualized program.
Q: "Will I also receive a running plan?"
A: It depends. There is the ability to add-on a running plan which includes a custom plan from scratch or how to maximize your current plan for only $50. Unless added, the running plan is NOT included in the cost of the program.
Q: "Due to work and the various holidays, there may be a few small trips that could interfere with this program. Is that okay?"
A: Yes, that is certainly fine. When having the phone consultation this is something you can tell me about and I will make the necessary adjustments to your program. This could mean moving workouts around to fit your travel schedule or changing the program to be completely bodyweight on specific travel days. Like I mentioned, this will be 100% individualized to your needs. I do, however, expect you to complete the exercises as assigned so it's fair to the other participants and you still get your weekly points.
Q: "What does the 1st place winner receive?"
A: Well, when YOU win you will receive a $100 gift card to a local running store of your choosing. Also, don't forget there is up to $300 in prizes raffled off throughout the program. Most people win 1-2 items which could include running gear, educational resources, etc. I add tons of perks to this program to incentivize you to remain consistent.
