Matt Has More Power, Strength & Endurance for OCR


Spartan Race Competitior

In our latest member feature, meet GHP Run member Matt from Portland, OR.

What obstacle/s were you facing when you decided to join the GHP program?
I needed a way to train for Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) and Ultra’s that fit my schedule and that I trusted to prepare me. Specifically, I needed more strength and better run technique to go longer and still have the power to handle the obstacles.

How has GHP helped you overcome that/those obstacle/s?
I am building for a 50k trail Ultra in March and I can feel the extra power in my runs when I accelerate up hills that used to slow me down.

What does GHP provide that you value the most?
The training plan. I don’t have the think about how to work out or what to do.

What have been your results or the impact on your life from training with GHP?
I’m kind of new to the program, but I can tell that my strength is improving and my running feels more effortless.

Why did you choose to join Shift over another program/service?
Brian’s background in Ultra’s and the reputation of CrossFitâ„¢ Endurance.

What would you tell others who may be considering joining Shift?
It’s a super easy to follow program that will train and prepare you. The coach is VERY responsive, and there are videos for each and every exercise if you don’t know what they are.
