Can’t wait to be head coach of this ultra training camp hosted by Heights Performance this July.
The inaugural Heights Performance High Altitude Ultrarunning Training Camp is a tremendous opportunity to increase your fitness, build your skill set and further your passion for the sport of ultrarunning. Join us July 17 – 19! Hosted on the beautiful trails of Crested Butte, with access to the world class Mountaineer Field House and High Altitude Performance Lab on the campus of Western State Colorado University, you’ll be training between 7700’ and 11,000’.
Come ready to expand your limits and prepare for your late summer and early fall competitions. Camp leader Duncan Callahan will serve as your coach and tour guide throughout this intensive training camp. Duncan’s experience as a coach, and as an 8-year veteran of the sport with 2 wins at the Leadville 100, will prove valuable as he leads you on the trails and into the testing lab.
You’ll have 4 structured training runs on the world famous trails in and around Crested Butte. All runs will be structured for runners of all speeds. You’ll test in the world class High Altitude Performance Lab at Western State Colorado University and learn your training intensity zones. A nutrition presentation and a Functional Movement Screening will also be part of this incredible experience.
Don’t miss out! Register today.
High Altitude Performance Lab Testing: The High Altitude Performance Lab (HAPLab) at 7750 feet above sea level is a sport performance and exercise physiology facility equipped to assess the major fitness parameters. These parameters include: muscular endurance, muscular strength, cardiopulmonary capacity, flexibility, and body composition. The testing associated with the Heights Performance High Altitude Ultrarunning Training Camp includes VO2 max testing, lactate threshold testing and data review to provide corresponding heart rate and pace training zones. Each individual’s testing will take about 90 minutes.
Functional Movement Screening®: Performance expert and Certified Physical Therapist Trent Ezzell, MPT will be on hand to perform Functional Movement Screening (FMS) for all participants. Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitation and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness. The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns. Read more at http://www.functionalmovement.com/fms.
