Youth Programs


 

Winter Conditioning

Crazy Running – Winter Conditioning, one of our most popular training sessions, include weeks of endurance, strength and speed development for youth ages 5 – 14. Sixty-minute workouts include running, stretching, strength training, running form work, plyometrics, speed development and more! The Crazy Running program motivates, encourages, and challenges young athletes to push themselves, improve their fitness and develop their athletic ability. We find that athletes do benefit from participating one day per week, but find that the athletes that participate more than one day per week grow more athletically. Crazy Running Winter Conditioning will help the young athlete: be more prepared for spring sports, increase speed and endurance, improve core strength, increase overall fitness in the off-season, become a stronger athlete! Play Crazy, Run Hard!

Spring Training

Our program is designed to help develop coordination and athleticism in young kids. No matter what sport your kids are getting ready for, running can get them in great condition and help them become balanced, well-rounded athletes. We teach the fundamentals using structured practices, form drills, running specific exercises, and running specific plyometrics. We believe in teaching kids to run correctly, being challenged aerobically each practice, and having fun with running games designed to bring out the competitive spirit.

This fun, challenging training program will prepare Juniors (5 – 7 year olds) and Upperclassmen (8 – 14 year olds) to compete in a local race at the end of the season. We will focus on goal setting and determination as we train to compete in a fun day of racing!

Owner / Operator

Briana Arnold
raleigh@crazyrunning.com

A young native of Raleigh, NC and an Exercise Physiology student athlete alumna of Winston Salem State University, I had troubles determining how to complete my direct calling on earth. 
As a first-generation college student, I was exposed to a plethora of opportunities to experience things my parents never had the chance to. From furthering my education, to lifelong lessons via the women’s basketball team, to a trip out the country, all expenses paid, to simply build homes for the less fortunate, I can truly say WSSU placed a tremendous impact on my life. More importantly, that is where I also got exposed to this amazing program by the name of Crazy Running. While enrolled at WSSU I was able to serve as a coach, for two seasons, for Crazy Running. Not only did the program serve well to the youth in the community, but the simple interactions I got to encounter with each and every child, shedding laughter and light, serving not only as a coach but also a mentor, is what pushed me a step further to bring this program to my hometown.

It is clear though I would have not progressed this far without the assistance of my parents, coaches, and mentors that stood by my side every step of the way. I was determined to not only be the first to graduate college but do it via athletic scholarship. If there was something else I was sure of, I knew my calling involved giving children guidance, that I was once given, based in an athletic setting. Not only guidance, but displaying the importance of teamwork, and how this lifelong skill will transcend into their soon to be professional world. I currently work full time in the IT field serving as a Sr. Project Manager, but striving for great health and success in everything I conquer, I am proud to announce an addition to my title as a Franchisee owner of Crazy Running.  I am blessed to initiate this experience at only 24 years of age but my ultimate purpose and foundation is based upon this thought… “while I still have the chance, it is a duty of mine to give back everything that was once given to me”.
