No, We cater for all levels, from beginners to experienced runners.
Wear suitable running clothes and shoes, bring a water bottle and watch to time intervals. It is a good idea to bring a towel to leave in the car.
Your progression will be gradual, with no sudden changes in pace or technique expected from you. The sessions will be hard enough to get the desired outcomes & that may be different for each person in the group.
That depends on your goals & availability. You will get the most out of coming to 2-4 sesions a week. If you are planning other runs during the week outside of the group sessions, I can advise you on the length & type of runs that will suit you best for your current goals.
No, many people will have a goal such running a certain distance or time continuously that they would like to achieve by a certain date. Having a plan with a set date or deadline will increase your chances of achieving your goal.
If you have to stop your plan, or feel you have fallen behind or exceeded your expectations & would like to reassess the plan, it can be modified to better fit your current needs for an additional fee of $45.
Personal Run Coaching
The plan will be delivered to best suit your needs, weekly plans can be done with set days for each workout or they can be given in a way that you can rearrange days to best suit your lifestyle. Notes will be given to help guide you & make sure enough rest/recovery is taken between key sessions. Some people may find a plan delivered with 2 weeks training is a better option.
Some people may prefer to email the previous weeks training with relevant notes, others may have a preferred training log that they can send or allow access to such as Strava, Garmin connect or Suunto movescount. Feedback and adjustment will be done via regular emails.
Injury Management Consultation
If you are unable to run at all it would be best to address the underlying problem first. Once you are able to run at an easy effort, even for only a short distance you will get the best results from this session. The goal of this consultation is to help identify and address biomechanical and running technique issues that may result in ongoing injuries, some of the screening tests may not be able to be completed properly if you are suffering from an acute injury.
Wear suitable running clothes and shoes. If you use various shoes, bring them along for assessment.
Usually the consultation will take around 45mins to 1 hour.
It is best to not schedule a hard training session on the day before. You may be given some exercises to do the day before to record the result.
