The Gantry Endurance running program is rooted out of the racing and coaching career of owner and head coach Jay Hachadoorian and the training methodologies of CrossFit Endurance.
Jay has been a running and triathlon coach utilizing the POSE Method of training, a system for teaching running technique developed by Dr. Nick Romanov to ensure efficient, injury-free movement taught through poses, since 2004, combined with strength training specific to the needs of endurance athletes.
In 2010 Jay discovered CrossFit Endurance, which advocates proper form and strength training as the foundation of a good endurance practice. Since this fell right in line with the training methods Jay had incorporated into his coaching he quickly adopted the CrossFit Endurance protocols. Jay has used the CrossFit Endurance training methods with endurance athletes of all distances, from 5k to Sprint triathlon, marathon to Ironman.
The goals of the Gantry Endurance program are to build a team of racers who will compete in endurance events around the tri state area and spread the word about CrossFit Endurance.
“Power and speed are critical components to success in the endurance world. With careful planning, our strength and conditioning plan increases these two mainstays of performance while decreasing recovery time, reducing injury, promoting preservation of lean tissue and creating a more sustainable performance curve.
We focus on eliminating unnecessary volume of training while increasing intensity. Our programming is structured, sport-specific and seamlessly integrated with Olympic lifts, powerlifting, gymnastics movements, explosive activity and mobility-based support. Everything we do focuses on midline stabilization and working from inside to out.
Our strength and conditioning approach for endurance athletes is unparalleled. We incorporate the CrossFit fundamentals of being constantly varied. Repetition is the enemy and results in a decreased ability to build fitness.
Make no doubt. Our program is not easy. But we believe the journey is part of making the results more rewarding. Our design is to maximize you as an athlete and to elevate your fitness.
Our commitment to you is that we will coach, inspire, lead and educate with care, sincerity and a relentless motivation to finally get you where you want to go!”
