Whether you’re just attempting to start running for the first time, you’ve fallen off the bandwagon, you’re a new mum returning to fitness or you just want some inspiration to make your running more interesting, join us for this six week block of 45 minute sessions that will incorporate strength and conditioning exercises, running games that will help you build your distance and stamina without you even realising it. You can choose to do one block or keep returning, but each individual will get exercises and running tasks that are set to their individual needs and requirement. This means it’s suitable for those who are just getting up from a walk to a run, right the way to those who want to improve their five km park run time but with some fun added elements.

Strength for Runners

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.
