The Power House Run Club

The Power House Run Club is an informal running group for community members to get together and knock out some fun runs throughout the training season! Runs will be held at various locations and cover a range of distances. All paces will be accommodated, and the runs are open to the public.

Race Prep Services

If you've ever heard of CrossFit Endurance and been intrigued by a low-mileage, high-intensity, skill-based approach to endurance training, our programs are the perfect way to start.  

Most approaches to running and endurance training are based on establishing a high volume regime and pay little to no mind to skill or technique when it comes to running. Every endurance athlete knows from experience however that a small bit of increased efficiency goes a long way in terms of establishing speed at distance. At The Power House, we believe in strong runners; runners who are bulletproof to injury and train smart to achieve their distance goals.

Running Programs:

16 Week Marathon Prep Program

The 2017 Marathon Prep Program is officially June 10-October 1, 2017, based on the Twin Cities Marathon race, but can be accommodated for other marathons and race distances throughout the season.

There are FOUR LEVELS to choose from in our race preparation offerings, depending on your level of training commitment and budget.

Level 1: 26.2 Training Packet
The 26.2 Training Packet is a comprehensive support guide written by CSCS and CrossFit Endurance expert Max Lipset on a 16 week mileage breakdown and log, a supplement guide, activation warmup series, and recovery protocol series. 
Cost: $26.20

Level 2: 26.2 Member Program
The ideal CrossFit Endurance training program combines 3-4 strength and conditioning workouts per week in addition to the low-mileage/high-intensity training runs leading up to race day, plus 1-2 recovery classes to heal soft tissue and prevent running-related injuries. Membership at The Power House provides unlimited CrossFit, Mobility, Pilates, and Yoga classes to compliment the training runs, as well as a Functional Movement Screen and customized corrective exercises.

Lacrosse Balls
Foam Rollers 
Versa Loop Band
Designs for Health pharmaceutical-grade supplements
