Welcome to Forever Runner Coaching

I'm Herb Reeves and I help runners in their 50's, 60's and 70's, effortlessly burn body fat and run stronger... INJURY FREE, so that you can enjoy more freedom, independence and vitality as you age!

Does this sound like you?

  • "No matter how much I run, I can't seem to lose those last few pounds!"

  • "I am worried that pushing myself too hard will lead to injuries at my age!"

  • "I want to prioritize my health and running, but it's challenging to fit it all in!"

Do you want to be a Forever Runner?

  • Lose weight effortlessly.

  • Experience unlimited energy during the day.

  • Greatly improve your health and extend your running life.

Why I can help...

Hey, I also struggled with losing that last 5-10 pounds, getting stiffer & slower to the point I was beginning to lose my motivation for running.

I tried running harder, extreme dieting, cutting calories. But none of it really worked. I wasn't until I embraced low heart rate training did I finally see results.

As a result of my trials and errors, I developed a framework the works for all older runners, my "Forever Runner method".

My approach is to help you effortlessly lose those excess pounds and enjoy stronger running, injury free without a hard training schedule or extreme diets.

The Key to Longevity is not Running!

March 21, 20231 min read

“Not only are bloggers suckers for the remarkable, so are the people who read blogs .” - Seth Godin


Running is one of the best activities for longevity, but not for what you may think.

Sure, aerobic activity and time outside has many benefits, but people can get many of those same benefits from walking or hiking. You see, you don't need that much higher level aerobic activity for longevity's sake. 

The true key for longevity from running is sprinting!

Although, sadly, not many runners sprint.

There are several reasons you should be sprinting:

  • Sprinting improves your capillaries and increases cellular  mitochondria, building your aerobic capacity.

  • Sprinting triggers adaptive hormones like testosterone and human growth hormone stimulating lean muscle development, increased energy and alertness.

  • Sprinting trains your neuromuscular system to run faster, allowing you to increase your usual pace.

  • Sprinting builds more resilient muscles, joints, and connective tissue.

And the cool thing about sprinting is that you don't have to do very much, or very often.

I recommend doing a sprint session about once every two weeks. If you are feeling good, do a 15 to 20 minute warm up run, then try 3 all out sprint sessions lasting around 15 seconds each with a one minute recovery between each sprint. I like to do mine barefoot on a grass field. 

Sprinting is an integral part of the Forever Runner Method. Adding sprints to your program has more benefits than increasing mileage or adding tempo runs, and you will add renewed energy to your running!
