Here is what one of our members of the SPARK Fitness Program said after 4 weeks of participating in April…
“Dr. Duane Scotti is professional and knows what he’s doing. I got to know him from his Facebook group “Healthy Runner”, where runners discuss about racing, nutrition, etc., especially injury recovery/prevention, among them including some experts such as Duane. I’ve been proactive asking questions to deal with minor injuries before they get serious and was lucky to go up to 90 miles per week and PRed my races without major injury.
It’s worth mentioning that Duane has developed a special online home fitness program during this pandemic, while the races are cancelled and outdoor runs are more limited. These programs are GREAT which covers different aspects including foam-rolling, mobility, stability, stretching and strengthening, so it’s a comprehensive package and a perfect hit for runners and active adults! Especially for runners who don’t do cross training or hate lifting weights (a vast majority lol).
Many runners hate lifting weights but that’s the essential way to prevent injury. I’ve been lifting weights and doing yoga before the running so I have a better understanding of the reason behind his workouts, making me more appreciate that Duane’s workout are well designed for runners! That’s why I highly recommend Duane’s program, which made it less intimidating and even fun and enjoyable to get stronger.”
We are going to persevere…and come out stronger on the other end of this TOGETHER as a running community!
Let’s bring our running community closer during these times.
In best health,

“I can’t thank Duane and his coaching team enough, especially coach Lu, for helping me fulfill my marathon dream!!! I have participated in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program twice now and all the coaches were very supportive. Coach Lu would adjust the training plan to my schedule which made it easier for me to follow. Duane’s strength training helped me to get stronger so I can run faster without injury. Coach Lu’s knowledge, tips, strategies and support not just helped me finish my first marathon but crushed my goal! I recommend the Healthy Runner coaching program 100% if you want to take your running to the next level. Just be consistent and trust the process, you will crush your next race with this team!”
“I struggled to get back into running after being diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left knee. A friend of mine suggested I check out the Healthy Runner podcast and I’m glad I did! I was lucky to grab a spot in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program and I have gained so much from miles away. I’ve gained tools to be a lifelong runner through the run and strength plan. I’m constantly gaining more mobility and look forward to my future of running. Duane is a great coach that gives you personalized assistance and helps you understand any questions you have! I’m definitely getting my spark back!”
Working with Duane has been a game-changer for my running. I’ve been in an endless cycle of injuries for the past five years and needed to make a change.
I connected with Duane through his Healthy Runner Facebook group, and then we began our virtual physical therapy visits. Virtual sessions work great for me because I’m constantly traveling and can access care wherever I reside. Even though I’m not in the clinic, I still receive the same quality of experience!
The best part is Duane is a physical therapist, runner, and coach, so he understands how important running is for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being! If you want to become a stronger, healthier, and faster runner, look no further!
