Stride Sticks

Mountains to Sea Walking and Running Center

Mountains to Sea Walking and Running Center

The walking and running center is tucked back in the mountains and foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It is a place where you can go as a person who wants to start a walking program and doesn't know how or a place where you can go to learn how to increase your stride and decrease your time as a runner. The program is based off of the program developed by Carl Dean, a physical therapist who designed it originally for runners and has now learned how to help people with all types of physical and mental issues. For runners we guarantee to take time off your average time (some runners have experienced as much as 2-4minutes per mile). For walkers we guarantee to teach you how to unload your joints and walk further, faster, and better than you ever have.

Stride Sticks SMART for Walkers

It is two sessions. Session one is an informational discussion with Carl about your issues and how the program works. You will be individually fitted with your stride sticks and instructed on the exercise program.
