I’m starting a new BC & am curious if this becomes too much of an obstacle/ or too limiting in program design? especially since their are a lot of sprinting type drills/exercises.. and workouts where you want to travel large areas.. If you do have NON- RUNNERS, what types of things do you do to accommodate them?
It’s never been a problem for me, but my BC is indoors so there’s not a huge running component because we don’t have too much space. We walk, jog, or run around the periphery of the group-ex room, and I have runners on the outer edge and walkers more to the inside so everyone can go their own pace.
I also tend to do things in circuit “for time” so that someone who is slower in either running or shuffling doesn’t feel like they are slowing anyone else down. They just do their thing, at their pace.
One of my specialties is that I teach multi-level participants. As such, everything I do has to have options. For the ultra-advanced who want a more competitive than self-driven workout, there are several other instructors on our staff to choose from.
