Become a stronger, faster, and fitter runner with strength training workout you do at home with minimal equipment.

Whether you’re running to improve fitness or training for a marathon, the Stronger Movement app has strength training workouts to help run farther and faster, build a stronger body, avoid injuries, and slash minutes off your PRs. All for less than $1 a day.

Come in a little closer...

What if I told you the secret to become a better runner?

Imagine running faster and farther with less effort. Imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a strong body built for longevity. Imagine putting on your shoes and running without nagging aches and pains. Imagine celebrating at the finish line after knocking minutes off your PR.

This reality is possible by following a strength training program designed specifically for runners.

Here's the real problem...

Your progress has ground to a halt.

Despite all the hours spent pounding the pavement, you’re not getting any faster. Nagging injuries plague your training and leave you wondering if you should hang up your sneakers for good.

Here’s the thing. Strength training is the simple solution to your problems. Spend a few hours working out each week and you’ll start to build a stronger, resilient body that will help you recapture that “runner’s high” you feel like you’ve lost.

Why Runners Avoid Strength Training

01

You don’t want to go to the gym.

You’ve considered working with a personal trainer or physical therapist but it’s pricey. And, you’re not even sure if they have the expertise to work with runners.

Good news! With the Stronger Movement app, you get a strength training program designed specifically for runners. Not only that, but the workouts are personally created by me, a physical therapist and avid runner with over 10 years experience working with runners, just like you.

The best part?

You don’t need an expensive gym membership and it will cost less than an espresso a day.

02

You don't have time.

Your days are packed with work, family, friends, and endless responsibilities. You make the time for your runs but you have minimal time for strength training. Without question, it can be difficult to find the time for a strength workout. But you know that you need to do it because your runs are feeling harder and slower and familiar aches and pains are creeping up. You might not believe me, but you don’t have to spend hours in the gym lifting weights to see improvements in your running. And you don’t need a personal trainer or physical therapist watching over you and counting reps. You need a straightforward strength training program, designed to maximize the time you have available.

03

You don't know what to do.

You do not know where to start. What exercises will help you run longer distances and outsprint your training partners? You can search online, but how do you sift through thousands of workouts to find the one that’s right for you? Think about how easy it would be to have everything mapped out for you. To have strength training works designed for runners, by runners. Imagine the impact on your running if you could finally figure it out.

04

You are confused & overwhelmed.

It can be a confusing and frustrating process to start strength training, especially when you only want to run. But you don’t have to stop running to start strength training. If you could figure out what types of strength training exercises to do to improve your running, you will have finally cracked the code, no longer feeling like a prisoner in your own body.

That’s an easy fix. I’ll tell you exactly what to do. Inside the Stronger Movement app, you’ll get new workouts every month, helping you stay motivated and on track.

If you can relate to any of these reasons, I created the Stronger Movement to overcome the major obstacles that prevent you from strength training.

MEET DR. HOLLY RICHARD (Founder, Stronger Movement)

I’ve been in your shoes.

Every roadblock you face is one I’ve struggled with in the past.

I’m a physical therapist with 25 years experience in the health and fitness industry. I’ve been an avid runner for 15 years, being fortunate to cross the finish line of many long distance events, including 24 marathons. While many of my marathon times have been slower, I am super proud of my marathon PR of 3:06. I have the experience, education, and expertise to help you stay healthy and reach your potential.

But let me back up. I have not always enjoyed running. In my 20s, I was a personal trainer who spent my days in a gym. I started running while living in a beautiful mountain town with no plans and no goals- and no clue what I was doing. But after a few runs, I was hooked!

As I started running more, I stepped in the same pothole many runners do. I neglected strength training in exchange for running more miles. I should have known better!

I get it. You have limited time, a demanding full-time job, and never-ending family responsibilities. Something has to give. And for runners, it’s usually strength training.

But that’s where the problems start.

Slower times. Slower recovery. Lingering aches and pains. Poor sleep. Low energy.

I was guilty of ignoring these early warning signs on a regular basis. Most runners ignore the early warning signs, continuing to log miles while avoiding strength training. These major injuries tend to happen when you are ramping up mileage for a race -exactly when you need the protection of strength training.
My major setbacks were not qualifying for the Olympic Marathon Trials and a femoral stress fracture a month before the Boston marathon. Both were big heartbreaks I could have avoided with strength training. I promised myself I would never repeat these mistakes.

I created Stronger Movement, an online strength training program, to provide runners with strength training workouts that they can do at home with minimal equipment. No more minor or major setbacks in your running. With my strength workouts, you will experience many positive improvements in your running from avoiding injury, to getting faster, fitter, and stronger for life.

the solution...

Start Strength Training.

The answer to your problems is not running more miles.
It is strength training!

If you start doing strength training workouts, you strengthen your muscles, joints and bones. You Improve your running form, correct muscle imbalances, and improve your running efficiency. You build a stronger body to become a fitter, faster, stronger, and more resilient runner.

You only have to look at the best long distance runners in the world. Strength workouts are a non-negotiable part of their training. But you don’t have to be Shalene Flanagen or Mo Farah. No matter if you want to set a marathon PR or run faster than your friends, strength has to be part of the equation.

find your tribe

Either way, the Stronger Movement Method gives you the tools so that you can modify and customize your workouts. It gives you the ability to make strength training fit with daily life.

As you do your workouts, you have options to modify each exercise to make it easier or harder based on how you feel each workout. You also get to customize your workout by deciding how many blocks that you are going to complete because some days you have less time than others.

The Stronger Movement program makes sure your answer is a definite YES!

Why runners should strength train?

Get to your desired goal faster than you can on your own

You can benefit from strength training regardless if you are a recreational runner or a marathon enthusiast. Whether you’re looking to get faster, stronger, or lose weight, strength training is a vital part of helping you achieve your goals.

Increase Running Efficiency

You want to run with the least amount of energy expenditure. Strength training can help you run easier, faster and farther. If you feel your stride start to turn into a shuffle and your body falls apart towards the end of a long run, strength training can help you improve and maintain your running form.

Run Longer with Less Fatigue

Strength training helps your body better cope with the stresses of running. Your tendons, bones, ligaments, and connective tissues will get stronger and be able to withstand the repetitive impact forces of running.

Run Faster Paces

When you feel stronger, running starts to feel easier. Runners usually see improvements in their race times within a matter of weeks. And you don’t need to spend hours training. Just 60-minutes of strength training every week can lead to phenomenal results.

Reduce Risk of Injury

Most runners want to run more miles at a faster pace. However, they often become injured because the muscles are not prepared for the increased mileage and intensity. Many running injuries, especially knee and hip-related issues, are a result of muscle imbalances or weaknesses. And beyond the benefit of avoiding pain, staying healthy and not getting injured means that you consistently run and progress.

my guarantee...

The ‘New Shoe’ Guarantee

When you buy a $150 new pair of running shoes, you want to know that you can return them if they don’t feel right. But you’re never sure until you take your fancy new shoes for a test run and see how they feel.

Similarly, I want you to take the Stronger Movement app for a test run.

That’s why I’m offering a 30-day money-back guarantee. Try the workouts and, if within the first 30 days you don’t think it’s the right fit, I will refund every dollar and dime you’ve spent. No questions asked. It’s what I call my New Shoe Guarantee.

You have two options. Both are zero risk. However, only one option has the potential to move you towards your goals faster.

➡ Option 1: Decide not to join, never start strength training, stay stuck with slower and slower times, and battle frequent injuries.

Or

➡ Option 2: Join Stronger Movement today- risk-free. Get access to 4 weeks of strength training workouts created specifically for runners. At the end of 4 weeks, you decide if Stronger Movement is for you. If it is not for you, it won’t have cost you a cent.

So, join the Stronger Movement and start reaching your running potential.

You've got questions? I have answers!

Each workout lasts 30-45 minutes. The exact time varies based on how long you rest between sets and how long to set up.

The Stronger Movement program is circuit-based to make it more time-efficient for runners. This means you do 2 exercises as a group before repeating them. You will quickly become familiar with how the workouts are structured. The emphasis is on exercises that will carry over to making you a faster and stronger runner.

It’s simple. You can join Stronger Movement anytime for instant access to the workouts for the month. I hope you stay for the long-term but if you need to cancel your membership, you have the flexibility to stop it and come back at another time.

No. The number of days you strength train is based on your personal goal. And, let’s be real, the time you can sneak away from your job or family for a workout. I give you 4 strength workouts a week because it is the ideal recommendation to become stronger. However, you have to consider other factors and priorities in your life and adjust. At a minimum, I recommend you do 1 lower body and 1 upper body workout a week.

Yes. The workouts are scheduled Monday-Thursday in the app. But you do not have to workout on these days. If you have a harder run one day or a busy day, you absolutely can move the workouts to different days. The only requirement is to alternate between lower and upper body days.

You need to follow a strength training program that includes specific exercises with the focus on progressive overload. If you do Body Pump or boot camp classes, Crossfit or P90, or any other similar workouts, you’re not focusing on the right type of strength training that helps you run faster. You already get the aerobic benefits from running. You don’t need it in your strength workouts.

Every month, you have access to NEW strength training workouts available in the app, along with the extra bonus workouts. So, you’ll never get bored. It’s the perfect blend of consistency and variety. As you go through the workouts, you consistently learn, improve and master the exercises, while staying motivated and avoiding boredom

Not a problem. Workouts are designed for all skill levels. You have the option to make the exercises easier or harder, depending on your starting point.

Absolutely not! I created these strength training workouts to be done at home with minimal equipment. If you have some resistance bands and dumbbells, you can complete every workout. Find a place in your house or garage and let’s get to work.

Every workout is in the app! When you sign up, you’ll get a link to download the app. Simply log in and get started
