Relative Run Readiness

Relative Run Readiness

We believe your “why” is unique to you and our mission is to help serve you with “how” to get there. Pendola Project Relative Run Readiness is rooted in the mental and physical global utilization foundation for incremental long term success in strength training for running. We train stability to rest force in unstable positions and the relative strength needed to exert force with accurate execution for maximum power benefits. In short, learning to express the health and fitness that is relative to your needs is the underlying goal with Pendola Project Relative Run Readiness.
