Backyahd and The YAHD  Running & Strength Programming:


We hear it all the time, “I’m going to run a marathon so I’m going to either cancel my membership or only come a few days a month. I’m not sure how to manage it all.”

Strength and Conditioning

Strength training and running complement each other beautifully, creating a holistic approach to fitness. While running enhances cardiovascular endurance and burns calories, strength training builds muscle mass, improves metabolism, and fortifies joints. Strength training provides the necessary muscular support for efficient running, reducing the risk of injuries. Incorporating both elements into a fitness routine not only enhances overall performance but also fosters a well-rounded, resilient body capable of enduring the physical demands of running a half or full marathon.

Spring race season is underway, it’s the perfect time to lace up your running shoes to prepare for fall races. Whether you're a seasoned runner or just beginning, this package will give you everything you need to perform at your best come race day for $260!

Brian entered the marathon scene in 2021, and since has run 7 marathons after hitting the BQ standard in his first race. He has since notched a personal best 2:51, twice in that time, and continues to set the bar higher each training block. Brian has been a long-time athlete, using running as an outlet throughout his division-1 collegiate soccer career. He finds the cyclical movement and training blocks as a way to enter a flow state, tap into presence, and push the boundaries of his own performance. His coaching style utlizies performance-based breathwork focused on enhancing stress-adaptability, along with empowering his athletes to run faster, stronger and further than previously believed. Using a systematic approach to training, and treating runners that he has fine-tuned over the previous four years of practicing as a sports chiropractor, he brings a client-centered hybrid approach to endurance training.


Anoush Arakelian

Mitts & Conditioning

Anoush started running in high school and college just for fun running a 1:45 half and 3:55 full by 2014. When she moved to NYC after college, she caught the bug and started running with a team and working with a coach. Since then she has run 16 marathons with a personal best of 2:59 in the full and 1:24 in the half. About 7 years ago she started coaching her roommates and friends casually and learned quickly that she found more joy helping other people reach their goals. Coaching for her is all about helping people find their “why” in the process, building friendships and community, and falling in love with dreaming big!
