Resource suite

For Runners

A culmination of my professional work as a physical therapist for over 18 years and an endurance coach for 20, this resource suite is designed to help you as a clinician and coach save precious time by streamlining communication and follow-up. If you’re looking to raise the bar and create an unparalleled experience for runners seeking your services while refining your knowledge and systems, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Chances are if you’re a rehab professional or performance coach, you spend considerable time writing exercise programs for your clients.

I don’t know about you but a good part of my livelihood boils down to designing and delivering simple, practical training programs that engender a specific stimulus to bring about a desired outcome/adaptation.

As a clinician-coach, who operates in a fee-for-service model, I work tirelessly to create an unparalleled experience for those who trust their care and coaching to me. You can’t underdeliver when people pay out of pocket!

An integral part of this process lies in following up after each appointment in the form of a detailed email summarizing the session while providing salient resources and laying out best next steps.

This demands providing a comprehensive program that consists of meaningful exercises with crystal clear demonstrations and detailed instructions so there’s zero confusion.

Developing these programs and crafting follow-up emails can be insanely time-consuming when done right. If you’re like me, perhaps you’ve been bottlenecked by this part of your workflow. Get ready as that’s all about to change!

Despite pretending to have a handle on this skill during the early part of my career, my programming was abysmal…overcomplicated, ineffective, and had zero buy-in from my clients.

Sometimes I’d just hand over a piece of scrap paper with a few exercises scribbled down or take a picture of a whiteboard listing out the drills and send it to them…amateur hour!

Unpacking the Resources

Let me show you how it all works to save you time

After spinning my wheels for quite some time, I FINALLY developed a simple, elegant, and time-saving solution to this problem.

Imagine sending every client a beautiful program with links to the relevant exercises, equipment, and need to know info shortly after their session? Talk about an opportunity to create a moment that exudes professionalism while giving actionable resources to help people take ownership of their situation.

Over the years, it’s become obvious clinician-coaches and runners don’t need some elaborate exercise data bank or laundry list of drills to get the job done. This is particularly the case in working with runners considering running’s predictable performance demands.

Clinicians, coaches, and runners need a simple, practical, and potent library of exercises, which are demonstrated with precision and can be modified in various ways to meet the needs and abilities of our clients as we’re not all the same and often train for different reasons.

It’s also important to prescribe exercises that rely on minimal or readily available equipment. Remember…most runners loathe doing anything outside of running so let’s not create additional barriers to resistance training!

Out of necessity and to streamline the process by which I develop and deliver customized programs, I created

For Runners

Having spent years researching, performing, prescribing, and teaching these exercises to runners from various demographics, I can say with confidence this resource will save you considerable time and energy when you go to craft your next program and follow-up email.

Since developing and implementing this resource, my follow-up emails have gone from taking 30+ minutes to under 10 and are almost entirely done via voice/dictation.

Clients also rave about the elegant design and having access to the private videos. The captions also make it easy to follow if you need to turn the sound off on your device.

Any equipment that your clients need can also be ordered with a simple click, which takes you to an online vendor for purchase. (Disclosure: I have no relationship with the vendors.)

The exercises covered in this resource are timeless and form the crux of what I prescribe day in, day out to runners (and triathletes) across the age and ability spectrum.

These are the drills I do and teach. They’ve helped migrate countless athletes out of the medical system and onto PRs and podiums…even at the Olympic level.

So…regardless if you’re working with an athlete, who is rebounding from an injury or happens to be trying to reach the pointy of sharp from a performance standpoint, be rest assured that all your needs will be covered in this comprehensive resource.

“When Chris showed me these resources, I was blown away by the quality, intent, and practicality of what he created.”

One of the biggest problems I face as a clinician is creating a world-class follow-up experience for my clients. I generally snag some Youtube videos and type up a lengthy email highlighting key points. However, this is time-consuming, and ultimately, not very polished.

When Chris showed me these resources, I was blown away by the quality, intent, and practicality of what he created. Chris is someone I have always admired for the level of thought and detail he puts into everything he does. This is no different! Having access to an all-in-one premium quality video database, exercise prescription rationale, and “game-planner” PDF has turned my well-meaning patient follow-up into an unparalleled experience for my clients while saving me time and energy.

For clinicians out there who value follow-up correspondence as much as I do, this is an INCREDIBLE resource that will help you improve your client experience, boost your testimonials, and drive more clients your way. Thank you for creating this, Chris!”

This resource outlines critical information for your patients while saving you precious time in your day. And those are results everyone is after!
