Owner offers to help shave minutes off time, reduce chance of injury and pay for entry into the classic Philadelphia run.

According to Jerry Hill, founder of Philadelphia-based FitForce Camp, his camp has made runners faster, stronger and leaner.

"We have had people set personal records in both 5k and marathon times by cross-training their running with our unique program. Our training blends cardio, strength, stamina, power, speed and agility into one package. We then measure progress with a stopwatch so results are quantifiable”.

Hill's work is supported by a recent article in The Running Times, (Complement Your Running by Michael Yessis, PH.D.). The article emphasizes the need for cross-training to prevent injury and improve aerobic capabilities. Yessis warns that an increase in running volume greater than 10 percent every 2 weeks can lead to injury. This is something to be careful of when training for the ten mile Broad street run. Meanwhile, FitForce Camp is specifically designed to help prepare the body for the forces endured in running and athletic performance.

Inspired by his teams improved running times, Hill will reimburse all FitForce Camp members when they sign up for the Philadelphia Broad street run. "I want to support all of our current runners and encourage potential new ones. I know runners are always looking for a program that will help improve their running outside of roadwork alone, I hope this exposure will make our system available to more runners".

Hill notes that FitForce Camp is a performance based fitness program. Although running is a powerful tool, it is only one aspect of the camp’s overall program design. More information on the FitForce camp workout routine can be found in his blog; http://fitforcecamp.com/blosxom.cgi

Entry fee reimbursement is limited to FitForce camp members only; http://fitforcecamp.com/outside.html Contact Hill via email for more details.
