The newest client success story is for marathon runner Amy Ciepluch. Amy came to me in July with the goal of becoming stronger to improve her running. If you are a runner, the main thing you can take away from Amy's story is the importance of strength and stabilization to running. Amy started out with no glute function, no hip mobility, a shortened right leg, and no trunk stability. Add all of these up and a runner would have serious issues lying ahead of them. Fast forward to now, those problems are now gone/improving and Amy is tearing it up out on the pavement and in the gym. She is currently hitting new record times with her running, has set PR's of a 155Ib squat, a 185 deadlift, and an 85Ib bench press. Hence her record times due to being able to produce more force into the ground to propel and stabilize herself more efficiently. Not to mention she has dropped 4Ibs, 5% body fat, and 5 inches off of her waist. The boys at the gym are beginning to watch and even ask "if we are training for Armageddon." Awesome job Amy!! Peep the video below of Amy doing some light squat work.
