Tidewater Performance Coach Brian Maurer, MS of Exercise Science, CSCS, will lead “Incorporating Intervals Into Your Training: Running Mechanics and Speed Training” at the Tidewater Performance Center at 751 J. Clyde Morris Boulevard in Newport News at 8 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 30.

“Appropriate practice of recovery is paramount to a runner’s ability to stay on their feet,” Satterley said of this recovery technique seminar.
Satterley is a physical therapist and the Sports Physical Therapy Program Director at Tidewater Physical Therapy’s Oyster Point clinic in Newport News, conveniently located inside the same building as the Tidewater Performance Center on J. Clyde Morris Blvd.
Satterley earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY. He has practiced orthopedic and sports physical therapy with Tidewater Physical Therapy since 2006, is a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and has an advanced manual therapy certification.
“While hydration, proper nutrition and rest are all fundamental aspects of an efficient recovery program, sometimes we need the help of specialized tools and clinicians to assist with the recovery and treatment of soft tissue dysfunction,” Satterley said.
Satterley said all athletes, not just runners, are encouraged to attend as the principles of recovery are important for all active adults.
During Maurer’s interval seminar, runners are encouraged to come ready to workout and “discover the importance of interval training for increasing your endurance, power, speed and overall performance,” Maurer said.
Maurer will review the benefits of interval training and how to properly incorporate it into a training regiment. He’ll provide practical demonstrations on running mechanics and conduct speed drills.
The first event in the series was held Oct. 16 and showcased how strength and power training can benefit the runner and how to make the most out of workout time.
