Kathie’s Story

Kathie loved running, and even though it seemed to help keep her body weight down, she didn't love the way she looked.
When Kathie was 45, she slipped and fell. Shortly thereafter she developed severe acute low back pain.
KATHIE WAS UNABLE TO RUN OR EXERCISE WITHOUT PAIN.
After months of doctor visits, X-Rays, MRI’s, physical therapy sessions (which actually made the pain worse) and cortisone shots, her doctor informed her the pain was something she would have to live with.
Kathie dealt with pain on an ongoing basis and she was unable to do the one thing that helped her cope with stress-- exercise.
Kathie met Jon at one of his public lectures. Jon told Kathie her glutes didn't work and by strengthening them, she might feel better. Kathie could not believe the bluntness and simplicity in Jon’s thinking and decided to try personal training with him.
IN TWO MONTHS KATHIE WAS GETTING UP OUT OF A CHAIR WITHOUT PAIN.
In six months Kathie was working in her garden pain free.
In nine months she was doing sprint work on the treadmill without back pain or achy joints.
Kathie strength trains twice a week, core trains multiple times a week, cardio interval trains multiple times a week, and has zero back pain.
And she loves the way her body looks.

This is Kathie’s story, and we hope it inspires you.

Drew’s Story

Drew is a competitive distance runner. HIS FIRST INJURY OCCURRED HIS FRESHMAN YEAR IN COLLEGE. It would be the first of many…
Drew’s shins started to ache during cross country. Over time the ache turned into pain. He tried icing. He tried stretching. He tried massage. He even tried changing his shoes. Eventually he had to take a break from training and over the course of several weeks, the pain eventually subsided. A few months after resuming training, his hips started to hurt.
EVERY TIME DREW RECOVERED FROM ONE INJURY, HE WOULD SUSTAIN ANOTHER INJURY ELSEWHERE.
Drew didn’t realize, but he was falling down the rabbit hole: While in college, Drew sustained injuries to his shins, hips, iliotibial band, foot, and achilles.
Many runners go through this injury-recovery-injury process and like many other runners, Drew philosophized as to the cause of his problems.
My (insert name of muscle, tendon or ligament) is weak.
My footwear isn’t right.
I stepped the wrong way on a run.
I am unlucky.

After college, Drew’s good friend recommended a book called Core Training for Distance Runners, authored by Jon Messner. Drew was skeptical, but desperate for an answer. He thought to himself.
How can core training help me?
How can strength training prevent injury?
Drew really enjoyed Jon’s book and started implementing some of the exercises he read about. After several weeks, something was different… he felt better! Strength training was the answer!
At the time, Drew was running 60 miles a week in preparation for the Philadelphia marathon. A few weeks after Drew ran the marathon in 2-hours 48-minutes, HE SUSTAINED ANOTHER FOOT INJURY.
Not again! Not another injury! Drew was heart broken and lost.
Drew came to the conclusion he did not have the tools to fix himself and he reluctantly reached out to Jon for help.
Drew and Jon worked together to come up with a plan to fix Drew’s injuries and get him back to running as quickly and safely as possible.
After a few months, Drew had no pain and was able to start running again. After a year or so, Drew not only returned to his old form, but he was much faster. Drew set PR’s in the 200, 400, and 800 meters and his sights are set on the mile and 5k next.
DREW TRAINS JUST AS HARD AS HE DID IN COLLEGE AND HAS NO PAIN WHATSOEVER.
His hips aren't tight. His calves don’t cramp. His foot doesn’t bug him. His knees are fine. NOTHING HURTS.
Drew used to be apprehensive on his runs, wondering which step would cause an injury. Not anymore. Drew feels like a high school freshman discovering running for the first time.

This is Drew’s story, and we hope it inspires you.
A message from the owner…
The story of Core Fitness began in 2008 when I was working at a big box gym and in college athletics. The big box gym emphasized exercise classes and college athletics emphasized scientifically based training principles.
These two very different experiences shaped my vision for Core Fitness; a gym where individuals could train seriously and have fun.
Core Fitness opened in the spring of 2012, but there was an immediate problem. I had trouble coaching more than one individual at a time. What happened next was remarkable, however.
Members started to coach one another, often without any input from myself. The great workout environment that was once a dream became a reality!
Core Fitness has continued to grow and evolve because of its commitment to member success. Thank you for reading the Core Fitness story and I hope to see you soon!
