Webinar: Fueled By Breath


(0 votes)

Topic: Fueled By Breath

It's common knowledge that breathing is a key component to relaxation and stress reduction.  But what isn't common knowledge to most athletes and their coaches is the important role that the breath plays in achieving peak levels of health and performance.  The truth is, most training programs place very little emphasis on breath work and breathing techniques while training which has resulted in most endurance sport athletes not even realizing that they breathe incorrectly.

In this webinar, Lisa Engles, author of Breathe Run Breathe and former head coach of the Silicon Valley Triathlon Club will teach coaches about the importance of proper breathing while running and cycling.  You'll learn:The detrimental effects of improper breathing on your athletes' health and performance.

  • The difference between nasal breathing and nasal-oral breathing.
  • Why nasal breathing is hands down the best way to teach your athletes to breathe.
  • How to assess your athletes for proper breathing.
  • How to begin teaching nasal breathing to your athletes.
  • Common issues with nasal breathing and how to resolve them.

 When you begin to apply these breathing principles into your coaching programs, your athletes will be able to:

  • Run and ride faster and further without strain or fatigue
  • Recover faster from their workouts
  • Experience a sense of ease and relaxation while working out
  • Perform better
  • Heal chronic pain and injury
  • Tap into peak states at will
