Strong Stride is a health and fitness company created by Lisa Watson in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The main focus of the company is to help runners and athletes stay strong and injury-free through specific cross training and proper nutrition. Lisa was motivated to develop this philosophy through her own frequent running injuries. While studying to be a personal trainer, she discovered that many runners needed to focus not only on running, but also on injury prevention through cross training. Less running, eliminating “junk miles” and spending additional time and effort strengthening the entire body make for a stronger runner and a more fit and healthy person overall. This applies to all athletes, but was developed with a focus on runners.
