As runners we all know that we should be doing some Strength and Conditioning work, but we don’t want it to take away from running and where do we fit it in, what should we be doing?

Our RunBetter sessions will cover the main exercises you should be doing, sets, reps, tempo, progressions and regressions and where best Strength and Conditioning can fit into your training.

We will also look at periodisation aimed at a specific event that you may have, or a different part of the running season.  


The two main benefits of adding strength and conditioning into your weekly training are:

  • Improved running economy, allowing you to cover the ground more quickly and efficiently
  • Building more resilience to injury/injury prevention

Come along and see how you can improve your running economy and resilience to injury.

Class numbers are limited for your comfort, be sure to book in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.

If you are unable to make it along to class, please contact us 24 hours in advance and we can refund or re-book your class for you.
