Training for Endurance Athletes

Our level of endurance influences the ability to perform and excel in any sport. That’s why committed athletes incorporate endurance training into their regular workout schedule.

Aurora BayCare has qualified personal trainers who can make sure you’re getting the most out of your endurance training program. Your personal trainer will take the following factors into account when designing your program:

  • Your current strength, power, and endurance
  • Your current training regime, age, body weight, and available time
  • Improving your lactate threshold
  • Improving your VO2 max (oxygen uptake)
  • Training volume and intensity
  • Exercise economy
  • Muscle fiber
  • Injury prevention
  • Your motivation and goal

Endurance training programs will include a mix of cardio endurance, flexibility, and muscular endurance exercises.  Depending on your sport and goals, your programs may include slow distance training, high intensity interval training, Fartlek training, circuit training, repetition training, and pace-tempo training. We can also coach you on hydration and exercise nutrition.  

We’ll develop the optimum training program to help you reach peak fitness and reach your goals.

Health Benefits of Endurance Training

Endurance training helps your body be more efficient at delivering oxygen to working muscles. Through training, your body will also gain greater ability to convert fat and carbs into energy. That’s why endurance training doesn’t just improve your athletic performance, it boosts your overall health.

Like regular aerobic activity, endurance training may provide health benefits like these:

  • Greater muscle mass
  • Improved balance and coordination
  • Greater bone density
  • Enhanced metabolism
  • Improved insulin sensitivity
  • Stress reduction
  • Better brain function
  • Enhanced immune system
  • Improved sleep quality

Endurance Training for Any Sport, Any Level

Endurance training is essential to participate in endurance competitions like a marathon, Ironman, Tough Mudder, century ride, and more. It’s also beneficial for athletes in a wide variety of sports including hockey, soccer, basketball, climbing, and skiing.

We support athletes of any age or fitness level. Talk to us for the plans, coaching, and tools you need to reach your fitness goals. Whether you’re preparing for your first 5K, competing in an Ironman, or transitioning from high school to college sports, we are here for you.
