Frustrated with constant injuries, months of setbacks, and zero consistency?

It's time to regain your confidence and finally enjoy every run - injury free

From: Jason Fitzgerald

It’s my job is to help runners get faster and stay healthy.

Hundreds of thousands of people come to Strength Running every month and my coaching expertise has been featured in Runner’s World, the Huffington Post, and Lifehacker. I’m also a USA Track & Field certified coach.

Even though my runners suffer dramatically fewer injuries than most – and I haven’t had a major injury since 2009 – this is about you.

Over the years, I’ve learned that most runners are chronically stuck in the injury cycle.

Have you ever said:

I know exactly how you feel. I used to be chronically injured with Achilles Tendinopathy, IT Band Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, and almost every other running injury.

I was desperate to finally find the freedom that comes with healthy running, but kept asking myself, how long am I going to feel helpless? 
Why the hell was I so stubborn? Does anyone else understand how frustrated I am?
Constantly dealing with a “foot thing” or a “calf thing” or a “hip thing” is the worst. 

Mainstream Injury Advice is Awful

But it’s not entirely your fault! Mainstream advice to “follow the 10% Rule!”, “make sure you stretch!”, and “rest, ice, and do it all over again!” doesn’t work.
It’s outdated and incomplete and there are much better solutions for you.
Just look at this advice from the editor of a major fitness magazine to run so hard you feel like you’re dying:

Or this gem:

Run less? Who the hell wants to do that? You’re here because you’re a runner and you love running.

I’m not going to tell you to run less (unless you want to). Or run so hard you want to die. Or do a lot of static stretching, like this major running website:

Stretching post-workout has nothing to do with injury prevention! But mainstream advice and conventional wisdom hasn’t evolved with the latest science.

Instead of wasting time on strategies that don’t work, let’s focus on getting you back to running healthy, strong, and confidently.

Why Do Runners Get Injured?

There are a few things about running injuries that you have to know.
Fact #1: Prevention is about a lot more than strength exercises.
Some runners think if they just do strength exercises they’re being “smart” about injury prevention. But no amount of strength can overcome poor training.
Your running program needs to be structured the right way – or else your strength gains will just be wasted.
Fact #2: RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) is just the beginning.
Ask any runner what they do to recover faster between workouts – or when the early signs of an injury appear – and they’ll inevitably defer to RICE.
And it’s a great first step. But it’s just a first step. Are you following a post-run recovery routine? Are you doing all the maintenance work that you should be doing? Or maybe you’re relying too much on one aspect of recovery (like icing).
Worse yet, are you doing things that are actually hurting your recovery? The blunt truth is that most runners make these mistakes – and I want to help you avoid them.
Fact #3: Smart runners build prevention into their training.
A runner once told me that he doesn’t want injury prevention to interfere with his training. After an audible gasp, I shook my head sadly. Unfortunately, this runner is doomed to continue on the hamster wheel of injuries.
The runners you know that never get injured are incredibly smart about prevention. It’s automatically built into their training plan with strategic mileage increases, workout progressions, and runner-specific exercises. Their health is not an accident.
Fact #4: Consistent health isn’t about luck or genetics – it’s about hard work.
You are not destined to be injured all the time. Nor are consistently healthy runners lucky – they didn’t hit the genetic lottery.
Instead, healthy runners work hard to stay healthy. And so will you!
Thousands of runners just like you have used my coaching to get (and stay healthy). See for yourself:

“Getting a personalized training plan from finishing a 10k to PRing a marathon to a running my first 6h ultra in just two months (!) was probably one of the best things I’ve ever done for my running. I don’t think I could have handled the short time period with the increasing mileage by myself and come out of it, not only alive but with great results and injury free! Thank you so much.” – Linda

“I used to often have trouble with my knees, which I believe was a result of a weak ITB. I also often experienced calf strains. Previously, running was just running to me, but now my running has definitely matured.”– Premshree

3 Mistakes I Don’t Want You to Make…

I’ve individually coached over 1,000 runners and helped tens of thousands more with my coaching programs. I know what type of training prevents injuries – and what sounds good but doesn’t actually work.

There are three huge mistakes that runners make all the time that leaves them stuck in a chronic injury cycle, going from one injury to another without ever having the consistency that allows you to accomplish your goals.
Mistake #1: “I’m not sure if this will work for me. I’m a [trail runner], [older runner], [ultra runner].”
All of us want to prevent injuries – it helps us do what we love: run! And the beauty of smart training is that it’s universal.
Prevention strategies that work for me will also work for a 36 year old mom in Ohio who’s just getting started with running. And they’ll also help a 52 year old trail runner in Australia who can’t get enough of running tracks in the bush.
The mistake is to second-guess yourself by asking a hundred questions. I use to do the same thing: “Those workouts are too hard for me – I’m too young/slow/not on Varsity/haven’t been running as long.”
But soon I learned that the problem wasn’t with the training strategies, it was with ME! Instead of listening to a coach who had decades of experience, I thought I knew better. But that’s why he was an expert and I wasn’t.
Indeed, training is universal – it scales up to faster runners and down to slower runners. The prevention strategies in this program work for everyone because we’re all runners. And as runners, we need to follow coaching programs designed for runners.
Mistake #2: “Injury prevention isn’t a goal right now. I’ll wait until later.”
I made this mistake for YEARS – and my running suffered. And I’ve worked with runners who thought they didn’t need injury prevention built into their training.
But the truth is that healthy, fast running is the product of very smart training and diligent injury prevention work. It doesn’t interfere with running. It enables running
And indeed, smart prevention is really smart training.
When your training is designed with a focus on injury prevention – from the mileage, workouts, and even specific exercises – it’s quite simple to stay healthy. The annual injury rate would be nowhere near 70% like it is now if runners had better training (and that’s what this program provides).
Mistake #3: “I’m already doing strength exercises and core work. I can do this on my own.”
First, this program is about a lot more than just strength exercises and flexibility. But let’s talk about the real issue here: the belief that strength exercises = injury prevention.
Strength work is just one part of a good injury prevention strategy. Many runners think that it’s all they need. But that’s like saying all you need for good chicken noodle soup is the chicken. What about all the other ingredients?
Even if you’re doing all the right strength exercises, is your training designed properly? No amount of strength can overcome poor training!
Injury Prevention for Runners includes the best strength exercises for runners. Plus the training strategies that help you run smarter, like how to build your mileage properly (hint: forget the “10% Rule”), choose races, structure your program, and more.

30-Day Money Back Guarantee

If you’re not happy, I’m not happy.

My guarantee is simple: use this program and see for yourself if it works. If it doesn’t help you become a healthier runner, show me you took action on the coaching lessons and why it didn’t work for you within 30 days, and I’ll refund 100% of your money. I’ll even eat the credit card fees.
I’m confident this program will help you become a better runner: healthier, stronger, and with fewer injuries. While I can’t guarantee you’ll stay healthy, if you don’t improve your running with this program, I don’t deserve your hard-earned money.
Simple as that.
BUT… I know that’s not going to happen. Because the results of my runners prove my coaching works. I’ll leave you with this unfiltered feedback:
“This is the first of a dozen marathon training cycles in which – as I tapered for the race – I actually felt good, strong and ready. I finished the USMC marathon with a PR of 38 minutes. More important than my time is the fact that I feel GREAT. I feel fit as a fiddle thanks to your advice and guidance. Thanks again for what you do.” – David N.

“I absolutely recommend this”

“I thought ‘if it works, it’s priceless.’ Then I learned that it is possible at 58 to loosen and wake up stuck areas of the body. I absolutely recommend this program to other runners with chronic injuries. 
It’s an amazing package with so many great interviews, fantastic exercises, and it’s easy to access. Thanks Jason for putting together such a comprehensive program for runners like me who struggle with chronic injuries. There really is hope for us older chronically injured runners.”  Brian

“I feel almost ‘Injury-Proof'”

“I can run more consistently with much faster recoveries. With a balance of higher mileage and well-planned speed and tempo progressions, my running smoothed out dramatically and left me feeling almost ‘Injury-Proof.
I have a lot more endurance, a little more speed, and a ton more knowledge. But mainly, I don’t feel like I’m going to break any minute. I almost never feel injury-prone; it’s all helped tremendously. You are more than worth your going rate and I think more like $250/mo.’” – Deb

“I can do so much more…”

“I can honestly say, with so much emotion, that I finally am able to lace up my shoes, get out that door and run comfortably with no pain. 
Jason’s program has made me a better, faster and stronger runner. I went from 4 days a week to 6 without any issues. I finally had that moment of ‘this is what running should feel like!’ It made me believe that I can do so much more with my running and achieve a few challenging race goals.” – Sarah

“This program cuts through a lot of the noise out there on how to train for running while preventing injury. It’s clear that Jason put a lot of time and effort into building the Injury Prevention program. Everyone who has struggled with chronic injury would benefit from this training.” – Brendan

“For the first time, I feel like I have a comprehensive plan for getting faster while staying healthy. I’ve dabbled with various strength and stretching workouts, but never found what worked for me. Jason produces some of the best information about running both faster and better. His emphasis on injury prevention over the long term has made a real difference in my running, and now I feel like I have a good, doable plan for getting faster while staying healthy. And I love that he brings in other experts to provide their specialized knowledge.” – Don “My IT injury that I was nursing back to health when I first contacted you is GONE!  I’m about 81 days out from my goal race (New Orleans) and am  thrilled to be training without pain! Thanks again for writing this training plan for me. I’m so very happy to be running strong and pain-free!” – Christy

“The coaching advice Jason gave me helped me take 27 minutes off of my previous marathon time, on a course run in the MOUNTAINS, whereas my last one was on a flat course.  I’m still injury free and already planning to find a flat marathon for a new PR!” – Chrissy

“I am seeing significant improvements. I am amazed at how much stronger, healthier and faster I am….I had some “nagging” planters fasciitis issues when I first started your plan 5 weeks ago, and within the first 7-10 days of starting the plan, those symptoms are GONE permanently! That is HUGE! I truly am loving being able to run 6 days a week without’s just awesome. Regardless of how I perform in Chicago, or in Memphis… I am truly a stronger, faster, and better runner because of your input!” – Dana

“I’ve been successful overall with rebuilding my mileage for training since taking on your training plan. It is such a relief to be able to train normally again since being injured. A big thank you again for that! ” – Allison

“Last Saturday I was top 10% in all categories in the Warrior Dash. And with no injuries! Thank you for the program.” –Brent “In 7 months I have not had a single injury. I’m able to maintain over 40 mpw and seem to recover a lot better. I never feel completely beat up like I used to after long runs or high mileage weeks.” – Nicole

“As far as I am concerned, your rates are a bargain.  When I think about what I have gotten I can honestly say that it is by far, the best investment and biggest return on that investment that I have ever made for myself.  It is truly hard for me to sometimes process what I have been able to accomplish in this year and ½.  No way I would even be remotely close to this without you.” – Marcie
