Dates: It will be 6 weeks starting June 17th and ending July 25th with no practice on July 4th. Also, the schedule will take them through mid-August, but our last meeting will be July 25th. The fee for the summer training is $350. ~

Program: This program is designed to get kids ready for Fall X-country or for kids who just want to improve their running strength and endurance for their fall sports. We will focus on doing the runs which are more fun to do in a group – one interval day on the track, one hill day at Valparaiso, and one longer run day. Our home base will be Hillview but we may add some trail runs on our long run day (I would try to organize a carpool from HV if we do).   Other things we will cover – essential mobility exercises for runners, tissue maintenance techniques, we will talk about shoes and when to replace your training shoes, nutrition strategies for runners, breathing as a mental strategy and to optimize performance, and much more.   ~  

Includes: All kids will receive a summer training schedule with runs to do on off days as well as on the off weeks.    


*Fall Session Only

Fall Cross Country is back at Hillview for its 5th year! I am super excited to be back this fall and helping another group of kids improve their running endurance, speed, strength, and overall conditioning. I will also share nutrition and mental strategies that will help them with running as well as other sports and life in general. No previous running experience needed, just a good attitude and a willingness to run.If this sounds like something your child might be interested in, then Stella Fit’s Cross Country Program is for you!

Improving running strength and endurance can help your child excel in other sports, whether it is football, soccer, basketball, tennis, or lacrosse. A solid foundation of stability, strength, and endurance is essential for athletes to compete at their best. Stella Fit’s Cross Country Program will teach your child the fundamentals of long distance running in a fun and safe environment. We will also weave in talks on nutritional support, mental strategies, and sleep for optimal health and performance. Our goal will be to compete in one cross country meet and run a 5K at Stanford at the end of the 8 week program. The program will be led by Stella Bergan, MEd, NASM CPT and assisted by Chelsea Fleher who is also a Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist.
