STRIDES Program

Striving To Reduce Injuries During Endurance Sports

Endurance athletes require specialized training to prevent or recover from an injury. STRIDES works with endurance athletes of all kinds to speed up recovery from an injury, mitigate risk of future injury or reinjury, and get you back to optimal performance safely and confidently. This program is deeply rooted in the WNY community, and in addition to post-injury programs and classes, offers informational sessions and workshops on proper form, technique and injury prevention.
