Strength work

Strength work

If you are a runner, strength and conditioning should be as essential to you training as running. It will help you to become a better, more efficient runner and most importantly, help you to prevent injuries. What you spend on strength and conditioning now – particularly if taking on the Brighton Half Marathon or Marathon, will save you lots of money in physio treatments later on.

I’ve been running now for over 17 years, and have done 10 marathons in the last five years, countless half marathons, trail races and long endurance events and have developed this 30 minute class to provide the essential strength work that your body needs. You need to be doing at least three sessions per week but you can use some of these exercises to do your own at home 15 minute version, we’ll show you how.

There are two price options for this event, either book for a minimum of four classes or the full six. WE don’t allow drop ins on this course because we work on a personal level to regress/progress each exercise according to each individual. Plus, to get strong, you need to be consistent which is not possible when you do the occasional class.

The class is strictly limited to 8 people.

Is your running always halted in its tracks by injury or constant niggles? Help remove the obstacles with a course that helps you to build your stability and strength whatever level of runner you are..

Over the last eight years, we have coached hundreds of women to become runners, get faster and run further so there’s not  much we don’t know about when it comes to women’s running – and motivation to run and keep going.

The biggest reason we see many women fall by the wayside when it comes to running is trying to do too much too soon. And without the correct foundations, this often ends in injury setting you back months.

Our Run Rehab course is aimed specifically at strengthening all the muscles which are essential for running to help you prevent injury and become stronger, fitter and more efficient. Over our six week course (starting Friday 16th September) we will help you build stability and balance both through core and gluteal work in a small group environment.

This course is ideal for ALL levels of runner and will help you rehab and get back to running if you are injured OR help to prevent you getting injured in the first place.

If you have only JUST started running for the fun of it, our Run Fit class may also be suitable. For those new to Fitbitch, you can try your first class of RunFit free by entering the code RFP at checkout.

RunFit, a running and conditioning class for beginners. 7pm Thursdays, Preston Park (Five weeks free with Learn to Run 5km, £7 drop in/included in outdoor season pass)

RunRehab for all levels of runners with targeted exercises to help prevent injury. 8-8.45am Hove Seafront until October and then New Fit Studio, The Level, Brighton. £60 for a six week course.
