Tips for Athletes: Spine Health

We spoke with Mary Johnson, founder of Lift Run Perform. She’s a running coach, new mom, and someone who recently overcame a significant spine health issue.

How do you prevent injuries and maintain wellness as an athlete? Mary fills us in on how she works with runners and why strength training is so important.

Some of the most important things in this conversation:

  • The importance of proper strength training
  • Consistent core work
  • Getting adequate sleep
  • Giving yourself the necessary time to recover
  • Listening to your body

Mary’s expertise as a coach is invaluable. Athletes — and new moms — will want to tune in and hear what she has to say about getting back into shape when recovering from injury or pregnancy.
