Jeff Galloway wasn’t always a runner. He was once an overweight, lazy 13-year-old who hated to perform strenuous activity. But when he discovered running, its positive benefits changed his life, eventually earning him a spot at the Munich Olympics and a career teaching others his unique run/walk/run method. Galloway will share his plan and explain how walking with short jog segments turns on the brain for better memory, better learning, and new growth of brain cells, and gives each exerciser control over attitude with more energy and empowerment to face the challenges of life.
Before Jeff Galloway became “America’s Coach” and a monthly columnist for the world’s leading running publication, he was a world-class runner, Olympian, and the first winner of the Peachtree Road Race. He ran with Steve Prefontaine, Bill Rodgers, Frank Shorter, and Amby Burfoot when the U.S. was a leading power in distance running. More than a million runners and walkers have used his training programs successfully and he’s authored 30 books. His innovative and successful training methods for runners have reduced aches, pains, and injury risk. The Galloway Method is used worldwide, allowing average people to enjoy the unique brain and body-enhancing benefits of exercise, while carrying on life activities. Galloway has consulted with key leaders at NASA, West Point, the White House Health Club, Homeland Security, the U.S. Marines, U.S. Air Force, DOD, and numerous corporations in the United States and Canada. He has appeared on ESPN, CNN, MSNBC, and hundreds of other TV and radio stations, and is in front of a fitness audience more than 200 times a year.
