Who is it for?

The running training starts with a running assessment with a detailed video analysis of your running style, and from there make a plan to improve it. The coaching sessions then focus on correcting your technique area by area.

How does it work?

We start with a running assessment with a detailed video analysis of your running style, and from there make a plan to improve it.  The coaching sessions then focus on correcting your technique area by area.

We recommend between 4-6 sessions depending on ability, and then many of our clients choose to join RunFit with their new running technique.

Running coaching is suitable for anyone as the running and exercises are performed in intervals, so if you’re worried you’ll struggle, rest assured the session will be pitched at your level.

Running Coaching for Kids

Does your child struggle with school sport?  Do they love running and want to improve?  Running coaching for kids works the same way as it does for adults.  It starts with a detailed video analysis, a plan and then sessions to work on correcting the technique.  For kids, this can improve their confidence with sport, as well as their technique.

Injury Management

If you do get injured, you want to have your injury treated by an expert who fully understands the demands of running. Our physios are experts at getting you back on the road as fast & safely as possible, & making sure you fully recover so you can continue running with minimal risk of future problems.
