  • Have you heard the phrase, “run tall” but don’t exactly know what it means?
  • Do you ever wonder why you’re told to do warm-up drills like high knees, butt kicks, and skipping?
  • Do you see pictures of yourself in races and workouts and not like the form you see?
  • Are you plagued with nagging injuries and you know it’s related to running?
  • You know that improving your form will help performance, but you don’t know where to start?

In this 1 hour clinic you will learn how to get your body in the most efficient position, as well as learn common mistakes with run form so you can avoid them. 

Note: you won’t run more than a mile in this clinic, it’s mostly drill work, so in shape or out of shape, come and learn a lot! Clinic can be scaled to accommodate everyone.

Testimonial from previous swim clinic attendees: 

“Thanks for the class. As always , Great!! coaching. The explanations as to why a position works (or doesn’t work) in the water is so helpful, it gels the concept and helps me remember. 
You also do a great job at the “teach and repeat”, teach and repeat. Only way for a new learner to really grab all those pearls of wisdom. I feel like I’ve learned A LOT and found many things I can work on after just one hour with you.”

Stronger U Nutrition Partnership

We are excited to announce that Alamo 180 is partnering with Stronger U Nutrition to be our exclusive nutrition coaching program!

We all know the benefits to better nutrition, but what should you really be eating to see the results you want? Where is the best place to start? How does diet and exercise work together?

It can all be pretty overwhelming to navigate. But now we have a solution that will help you simplify and succeed with your nutrition goals. Introducing Stronger U Nutrition.

Stronger U is a team of coaches working to help clients reach their individual goals. Each client works 1-on- 1 with a coach who is accessible at virtually any time via phone, text, e-mail, or the Stronger U Facebook group (exclusive to members). SUPPORT is the #1 feature of the program and that is what makes Stronger U one of the best in the nutrition industry.

The program was developed after witnessing people working out hard, being active daily, and eating clean, but not seeing the body composition changes that they expected. Stronger U solves these frustrations of their clients by using a coach to take a step back, look at the current state of nutrition with an unbiased eye, and prescribing a fix utilizing daily macronutrient goals (macros for short!). Your individual numbers are assigned based on numerous factors such as starting weight, weight loss goal, fitness/performance goals, daily activity levels, and much more. Each week, you will report all of your macros, workouts, and hours of sleep back to your coach. This report gives your coach a detailed snapshot of how your week went, and how your coach can properly adjust (or NOT adjust) your numbers based on YOU, the individual.

The reason so many people see such great results with Stronger U comes down to the company’s strategy for clients — accountability, ease of adherence, and sustainability.
Accountability – your coach won’t just assign you numbers and send you on your way. Your coach is ALWAYS there to help you and hold you accountable. At a restaurant and not sure what to get? Text your coach. Worried about a trip coming up? Call your coach and get a strategy. Your coach is always there for YOU.
Adherence – No foods are “off” the list for you while you work with Stronger U. As long as you can accurately track what you’re eating and be able to make it work with your prescribed numbers, it is A-OK. This makes those Pizza nights with the kids or holiday parties easy to manage without stress!
Sustainability – This program will give you a new outlook on food and help you build a more controlled relationship with food. You’ll learn about how to choose quality foods, possess the ability to treat treats as treats, and be able to maintain levels AFTER you’ve hit your goal weight.

It sounds pretty great, right?  We feel this partnership with our fitness services and Stronger U Nutrition services will really help our clients #makea180. There are tons of success stories with this program, and we know that YOU can be one of those, too!

He recently posted on Facebook:

“Where the mind goes, the body will follow … When the right workout program meets the right nutrition program magic happens! I just wanted to thank Coach Jeff for being my biggest advocate and always pushing and coaching me to do my best. Between Alamo 180 and Stronger U Nutrition my mind and body are in a great place and my spirit is soaring.
