"I had heard wonderful things about NSS from a friend that I would run with. I ran for stress relief and loved intense cardio workouts.
Over time I was running through injuries, and being in pain made it hard for me to enjoy one of my favorite hobbies. I decided to try something different and work on my strength.
Working with a coach at NSS was exactly what I needed.
I always felt like I was in good physical shape but had no idea how many muscle imbalances I had. I had been running for years on an ankle that had been sprained several times, not even thinking about how my body was adapting to the pain.
My coach gave me specific exercises to help strengthen my legs one at a time, and I could not believe what a difference it made to correct my bodies imbalances.
It was the first time in years my ankle didn’t hurt after a long run, and I was beginning to fall in love with running again. I used my workouts at NSS as part of my training for a 17-mile trail race and they set up a wonderful plan to help me reach that goal. I ran fewer miles that year than I had in previous years, and not only did my time improve, but I also felt stronger at the finish line.
I went back to training on my own, but when I signed up for my first ultra-marathon in the Spring of 2019, I knew I could use some help.
This time I chose to do NSS to GO, and it has been perfect!
I had already noticed muscle imbalances from my time spent without a coach. Through the strength training program they set up for me, I began improving those imbalances.
In the short 6 weeks since I have started, I am running faster, longer, and most importantly I am having no pain.
The NSS to GO online coaching allows me to work out at a gym, or at home with my kids right alongside me, and I can use my free time to get my miles in.
NSS to GO is holding me accountable for my strength routines which I have previously skipped when life got busy.
My coach has been encouraging and is someone who actually gets it when I say “Hey, I got my long run in this weekend” or “I met my time goal”. It’s awesome to have someone on my side, and I know that my success is their success.
I strongly recommend NSS to anyone who has a goal of any kind.
What surprised me was how simple some of the exercises seemed, but I always saw improvement without feeling like I was punishing my body.
The coaches are amazing and have made me feel like a part of their family. They have so much knowledge and have always helped me reach my goals in the safest way possible!”
