MovementU Kelowna February 22nd, 2011 by Rick Salsa, 5 Comments


Pro endurance athlete, Jessi Stensland is coming to Kelowna for a 1 day swim, bike & run clinic (and much more). Jessi has been mentored by Mark Verstegen, one of the top athletic & functional training coaches in the world at Athletes Performance.

Class size is limited to 20-25 people. Cost is $199/person. The session will be held at the Capital News Centre in Kelowna. You can register for the event here:

Here is a more detailed writeup and schedule for class:

SWIM BIKE RUN: Movement Efficiency + Performance

This unique, interactive workshop, designed and lead by professional endurance athlete and movement specialist, Jessi Stensland, is unlike any other multisport education. It is about the most overlooked, yet most important thing you bring to your swimming, cycling and running: YOU.

Held at the top athletic performance training centers across the United States, this full-day experience is designed to enhance participants’ understanding of the body and how to prepare it to perform injury-free and energy efficiently. A dynamic and functional workout will kick-off the day followed by an in-depth discussion of the roles and relationships of the following fundamental elements of athletic performance: nutrition, joint mobility, flexibility, strength, stability, elasticity, cardio capacity and regeneration/recovery, as well as simple solutions on how to integrate them into daily training.

Each of the three sports will be addressed individually with an emphasis on the following:

Proper mechanics for movement efficiency
Common sport-specific biomechanical limitations
Functional and corrective exercises
You will understand better how to create and maintain injury resistance, energy efficiency and power in your performance. Go faster, with less effort, or get a lot more out of the effort you’re putting in.

The workshop will conclude with a regeneration and recovery session followed by Q + A.

Post-workout nutrition, refreshments AND homemade, fresh, mostly organic lunch will be served.


8:30 AM WORKOUT // Dynamic performance warm-up + workout
9:30 AM POST-WORKOUT // Recovery + Nutrition
10:00 AM LECTURE // Fundamental Elements of Performance
11:00 PM MOVEMENT SESSION // Movement Preparation
11:45 PM MOVEMENT SESSION // Running
1:30 PM MOVEMENT SESSION // Swimming
4:00 PM Q + A // WRAP-UP

Again, if you’re interested, leave a comment below. I’m hoping for some time between April & June for the session.

I would love to be a part of something like this. I am NEW to the triathlete scene and will be competing in my first EVeR half ironman in July! It would be an incredible experience to fully participate and now just sit and learn! Briing it on!
