Get some Mo-Go this September

September 2, 2015 at 3:51
Posted by Rachael Woolston

After a summer of kicking back (or rushing around after the kids!) this month is the perfect time to reset and reboot. It’s what we, at Fitbitch have coined, Mo-Go time – getting your motivation back with some well considered fitness and healthy eating goals.

goal setting

In fact, if you are a beginner or lapsed exerciser, we think September is BETTER than New Year for setting goals because it helps you to get through the autumn-winter months feeling inspired and keeping the blues (and the bloat) at bay with some endorphin-boosting workouts and purpose.

Alternatively, if you are a regular recreational female athlete, NOW is the best time for plotting your 2015-16 goals, which races to enter, target times etc.

This It means that you can enter events intelligently, taking into consideration how much time you have to train, measured against social life, relationships, work and family. And the upshot of this? Your goals become achievable and not another millstone of stress around your neck, leaving you feeling guilty or rubbish for not being able to fit in the training.

Still feel bamboozled, and not sure what goal to choose or how to go about achieving them? Take some inspiration from our Mo-Gos – and the courses we offer to help you achieve them.

Mo-Go 1: Lose the seven pound summer bloat

Feel bloated, out of shape and generally like you have a summer bloat hang-over-your-waistband?

Then…kickstart a new fitness and healthy eating regime with our Reboot four week course for beginners and beyond. Three or four sessions per week, in a small group aimed at your individual level. Fun, effective, transformative. Various times and locations but hurry, spaces are going fast.

Mo-Go 2: Run your first Parkrun

What better way to get fit and stay motivated than running 5km with the amazing, free community www.parkrun.com. But what if you are not yet capable of running 5km and struggling with a Couch to 5km app?

Then…Join our Learn to Run 5km available different days, evenings and daytimes, which will help build your fitness and confidence to get to 5km.

After that, you can join our NEW run membership which will give you access to one FREE run per week, paced runs in a group which will help you to forever feel the #runlove. Not to mention entitling you to discounts off courses and savings on everything from Juice cleanses to yoga and float sessions with our local business partners.

Mo-Go 3: Smash Your Brooks 10km personal best

So, you can already run 10km but are so bored of trudging along doing it, you no longer get any enjoyment out of it?

Then…Join our friendly Smash Your PB group starting next week and at the end of September to help you get faster, fitter and feel supercharged with endorphins.

Mo-Go 4: Take part in Brighton’s FIRST 10 mile road race

October 16th sees the FIRST ever 10 mile race on Brighton and Hove seafront. Want to be part of the first group of runners and build your distance too?

Then…join us on some beautiful off-road weekend routes on our Learn to Run 10 miles (three of four guided, coached runs over six weeks) starting THIS weekend.

Mo-Go 5: Run your first 10km

Always struggled with running for longer than five minutes?

Then…beat the boredom, and boost your butt shape with our  Learn to Run 10km course starting September 8th (or on Monday’s during the day)

Mo-Go 6: Run a Half or Full Marathon

Perhaps you’ve signed up already but are pushing it to the back of your mind. Don’t! Want to get fit and run happy, feeling good from start to finish?

Then…Do our Absolute Beginners Half Marathon course, or sign up for our indoor, small group Marathon Foundations Performance course (available at pre-work and daytime time slots at different locations). Hurry for the latter though as spaces are very limited and include online mentorship throughout your marathon training programme.

Win a JoggBox

February 12, 2015 at 6:30
Posted by Rachael Woolston

If you’re ever short on gift ideas for the running buddy in your life, this new running goodies delivery service is a great idea..

Win a JoggBox

I don’t know about you but I LOVE getting treats through the post almost more than something gift-wrapped. It’s the surprise element that is the best of all.

And so we think this is a neat idea if you have a running buddy or partner in your life.

Each box contains a selection of goodies perfect for the runner in your life, and these change month by month, often showcasing new products from nutrition and sports companies.

Think Raw Carrot and Cinnamon Muesli from Primrose Kitchen, Foot Rubz, a massage ball for runner’s feet, Almond Butter, Energy Gels and more.

The box we received is definitely more suitable for endurance runners (you’d end up the size of a house if you used all the energy gels running 5kms!) and we’d hope that as this service gains popularity there are a few less sports gels.  But if they iron out these problems this is a great idea.

Subscriptions start from £15 plus P&P per month or you can pay a one-off £20 for a gift-wrapped box. For more details visit www.joggbox.com

Want to get your hands (and feet!) on one? Subscribe to our running newsletter by inputting your name at our run club website for EXCLUSIVE offers and prize draws.

Girls Run the World – Amsterdam Half Marathon

July 16, 2013 at 6:26
Posted by Rachael Woolston

Fancy running a race where your reward will be a weekend away? Don’t miss  our next  Fitbitch international race weekend in Amsterdam.

We differ from the big running tours companies in providing small, bespoke, friendly race weekends – as you can see from our pictures of trips to Palma, Lisbon, Lake Garda, Paris and Berlin.

We have only a few spaces left on our Amsterdam Trip (we can include training plans and race training depending on your location) but if these dates don’t work for you (the race is October 20th), you can express your interest in our future run trips to Marrakech and Istanbul in 2014 by clicking here.

For our Amsterdam Trip, you can book a package with us (you can arrive any day between Friday 18th and Sat 19th October and depart Monday or Tues) and you will get accommodation in the uber chic, eco design Conscious Hotel VondelPark, cycling distance to the centre and within walking distance of some of the city’s best museums & galleries.

Package price includes:

  • Accommodation on a buffet breakfast basis on a shared twin room basis  (travelling alone and don’t want to share? Single supplements apply)
  • Race pack pick up and collection at a designated time in the hotel where possible
  • Guided Transfer via public transport to the race start (cost of the transfer itself is not included)
  • In hotel race weekend rep at designated times
  • Optional excursions including post race celebration meals, Spa trips, cycling trips and more (all costing additional)

Package prices

  • 2 nights accommodation, £165
  • 3 nights accommodation, £213
  • 4 nights accommodation, £261

Amsterdam is more expensive than many other cities we have visited but this represents a good discount on prices (4 nights booking direct via the hotel costs £357.99 pp)

Please read our terms and conditions and complete the booking form. A non-refundable deposit of £100 is due on booking, and the cost of the full package trip must be settled by 1st September 2013.

Please fill out our booking form ensuring you have read our Terms and Conditions before making your booking.
