A FREE 7 Day Crash Course on Building Strong Glutes for Female Runners
Using my FAST Formula, I guarantee you’ll feel strong and more powerful in your stride while eliminating some aches and pains.
Does this sound familiar?
Your hip, knee, and or IT band chronically bothers you, especially when you build up your mileage.
You’ve been doing all the clamshells and lateral band walks but don’t feel like it’s really translating into your running; your stride feels heavy and inefficient.
You know you are supposed to use your glutes with squats, lunges, and deadlifts, but you can never tell if they are really working.
Enter the Glute Accelerator 7-Day Crash Course!
At the end of the 7 days, you’ll feel stronger, more powerful, fluid, and efficient in your stride without some of those typical aches and pains!
Can your glutes really get stronger in 7 days?
I’m all about full transparency. It takes longer than 7 days to truly build strength and muscle (most research shows upwards of 12 weeks).
However, through the education, awareness and targeted exercises in this crash course, I can guarantee your glutes will FEEL stronger because you will be equipped to use them more effectively in everything that you do, both your strength workouts and your running stride.
Then, think of how strong you will be after having the time to build on the foundation! That’s where the magic happens!
Runners need strong glutes!
Your glutes are responsible for strength, stability and power with every stride . Weak glutes are often a huge part of pain in runners (IT band, knees, hips, pelvic floor symptoms…). Stretching and foam rolling won’t "fix" you! Most female runners I see are going about training their glutes all wrong. Clamshells and booty band stuff ain’t it ladies!
My FAST Formula
Fun – I know most runners just want to run and could do without the strength training bit, but I believe strength training can be fun AF if you truly train like an athlete. I’ll show you how.
Activate – Learn how to truly activate your glutes so that you can use them the way you need them with running. (hint. it’s not using clamshells or booty bands)
Strengthen –Lay the foundations for true, functional strength in your glutes so that you can feel strong and more powerful in your stride while eliminating some of the most common aches and pains. Target – Target one specific movement pattern that has the potential to make a major difference in your running. Instead of doing all the things, let’s focus on doing ONE thing really well and then you can build from there.
What You Get:
✔ Daily progressions of my favorite yet simple glute exercises that will have you really *feeling* them work and take you from feeling heavy and clunky to strong, fluid and powerful in your stride.
✔ Daily education videos (most are 5 min or less -- I know you're busy!) to learn the why behind what we are doing, how it affects your running, and how it can be integrated efficiently into your overall training strategy.
All completely FREE!

Can I really get results in 7 days? I’m all about full transparency. It takes longer than 7 days to truly build strength and muscle (most research shoes upwards of 12 weeks). However, at the end of these 7 days I can guarantee your glutes will FEEL stronger simply because you are equipped to use the better. Then, think of how strong you will be after having the time to build on the foundation! That’s where the magic happens!
What equipment is needed? We will use a weight with some of the exercises. A dumbbell or kettlebell (or a backpack stuffed with some books) will work. Other than that, we'll just be using stuff around the house (wall, chair, towel). I want to keep it super simple so that you can integrate some of this into your run warm up wherever you are.
How much time commitment will it require each day? Each day will have one educational video and one exercise demo video. Each will be 5 minutes or less. Factoring in the time to actually try the exercises and check in, you can expect your commitment to be about 15 minutes a day.
Will you be running this again? Now's not a great time. Honestly, I don't know. Maybe, but there is also chance that I'll actually end up offering it in some form as a paid program in the future. What if I'm not an advanced runner? This is for all runners of all abilities. Runners more seasoned on the strength training front will find a few little tweaks that will make a HUGE difference in their running. Runners newer to strength training with create a powerful foundation to build on.
I'm doing another program right now, can I do this too? Yes! If you can commit 15 minutes per day to this it will be a great supplement to any plan you have in place. This crash course is not full workouts. The education and skill practice can be applied to any plan you have. Do I have to use Facebook? The Facebook group is where all of the engagement for the crash course will happen: opportunities to ask me questions and get feedback on your exercises as well as all of the daily check-in post. Engagement with the daily check in posts will be how you earn points for prizes. However, all the videos and information to actually do the work is housed off Facebook so you can still get all the info and the exercises no matter what.
