Jennifer Conroyd on Fluid Running
What does a marathoner do when she gets injured 6 weeks before the most important race of her career? Dr. Google of course.
And what does she do when the healing modality of choice leads to a recovery that qualifies her for The Boston Marathon. She builds her own company around that modality, of course.
Whether you’re an Olympic athlete or an 86 year old Gramma, Jennifer Conroyd explains how Fluid Running can make you stronger, fitter, healthier.
Deep water running offers not only as much resistance training as you want, it is completely non-impact. Whether you’re treating an injury or maximizing your training or completely new to exercise, Jennifer discusses how fluid running gets you to where you want to be.
Needless to say, get clearance from your doctor before trying any new exercise regime… but this is something maybe your doctor will take up too!
If you have heart issues you’ll be interested to hear Jennifer’s description of deep water running’s effect on heart efficiency – again, talk to your doctor first!
Athletes, non-athletes, overweight, para-athletes… the list is endless who can benefit!
