I started training with Ann about a year ago. I am a big 6'6" former collegiate athlete and came into running later in life. I wanted to lose weight, get faster, and learn more about the academic side of running. I couldn't have asked for better support.
Ann and Jason are so knowledgeable and passionate about running. Their expertise taught me so much about what it takes to be a great runner.
I've been following the Formula training philosophy for almost a year and I've gone from being a "shuffler" running 11 minute miles to finally running a 24 minute 5k (under 8 minute miles)! I finished my first marathon in March and have lost 25 pounds in the process.
The gains I made throughout my training were incredible. I couldn't ask for better coaches and I now swear by the benefits of Woodway treadmill workouts to improve your running and conditioning.
If you are unsure about taking the classes, try some of the community events that Ann and Jason put on and you'll understand the benefit of surrounding yourself with such accredited and respected professionals!
The most valuable takeaway I got from training with Formula team was the importance of varying workouts to reach your goals. From core workouts to intervals to ladders, the best part about training with Formula was that everyday was different and more challenging than the next.
As a trail runner, I am always reluctant to workout indoors, but after seeing the gains I made by working out with Ann my attitude totally changed. I started training with the Formula team midway through training for my first ultra. In those few short weeks before my race, I made enormous gains physically and mentally that carried me to race day and helped me reach a 2nd place age group finish in my first Ultra.
Ann and Jason have a wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion for running. You couldn't ask for better coaches!
