Fifty percent of runners have running-related injuries every year. Running Injuries: Strategies for Prevention and Intervention will help you identify the most common injuries, conditions, and discomforts associated with running as well as the intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors that may predispose a runner to injury. It details information on the biomechanics of running and strength, and it provides flexibility exercises to address the needs of clients at risk for and recovering from injuries of the hip, knee, and lower leg. You will learn training considerations, such as cross-training and alternative exercises, for both healthy and recuperating runners.

Once you complete the course and pass the exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.

Good basics every runner should know.

Good for newbies to the sport. as well as seasoned athletes. Pretty succent and to the point while covering a lot of information in an easily understood format.

$100 for a Virtual Textbook?!

I am quite dissapointed at how aged this course feels. The lack of multimedia is a huge negative for me. It's 2020, and not everyone learns in the same way (ex: reading almost 200 pages and taking a test). I would like to see this course improve with short videos and modules that are more interactive. I'm sure I'm not the only fitness professional who is a visual learner. The price for the value is high in my book.
