 Coach Hunt has extensively studied variables which relate to efficient and economical running mechanics. He is at the forefront of running mechanics analysis, and has dedicated the majority of his career to assessing ways for runners to improve their form. In addition to mechanics, Coach Hunt breaks down specific drills and workouts and incorporates them into weekly, monthly, and yearly cycles. His expertise in determining proper warm-up drills, conditioning workouts, and post-workout routines helps the athlete reach peak performance. His training ideals and drills are appropriate for runners of all ages and abilities. Results from Coach Hunt’s athletes over the years speak for themselves, and are a testimony to the success of the methodology he applies to training and racing.

    Coach Hunt’s MANY MANY years of Coaching are condensed into this book. I have previously compiled most of Coach Hunt’s philosophies from his days coaching my dad at Fillmore to the Tuttle-Scobey-Engel days right through Conover and Grimes, to UC Davis, right through to just recently. I can say that this book covers them all and allows the coach to think OUTSIDE the traditional training and take ALL athletes to a new level. The concepts and ideas in this book make it easy for a new or veteran coach to create well rounded runners. Book is a must for those that want to achieve more in running.
