What Is It?
We are a low cost, personal trainer led, conditioning club for building STRONGER, more complete runners. This means working on a good running economy and building resistance to injury. Training is seasonal and we work in mini cycles of six weeks in small groups for optimal quality.
Training intensity is completely up to you; everybody works at their own pace during the sessions. There is no pressure.
There are NO CONTRACTS on joining; you can come and go as you please throughout the year.
Payments can either be in monthly instalments, or per training cycle. You then join in as many, or as few of the scheduled sessions as you like (training calendar available online). I recommend you try to make two a week to begin with, but more are available to those that want.
Monthly (DD): £74
Six Week Cycle: £100
Once a member, you will have access to all of the online support material on Facebook, Strava and Google Drive. Supplementary 1-1 PT sessions will also be available at a discounted rate, or occasionally FREE to long-term members.
How Does It Work?
Building STRONG runners with a higher resistance to injury is about so much more than just running. Training sessions will typically be either:
a) A structured tempo run, usually around 3-5 miles. This is where we work on a specific energy system of the body, and develop it using the ‘progressive overload’ method.
b) A ‘run specific‘ conditioning session. Important aspects of running, often neglected, such as MOBILITY, STRENGTH, STABILITY, BALANCE, SPEED, POWER and BREATH CONTROL.
Training is seasonal; which means we use the weather and daylight available to our advantage, to achieve the best possible results.
Groups will typically aim to be between 4-7 people for optimum results in the running sessions. Conditioning classes can be slightly larger.
Who Is This For?
Run Stronger Club would be an ideal choice for ANYONE who fits the following:
- You have completed an NHS ‘couch to 5k/10k‘ type programme and wish to advance to the next level.
- You are a member of another running group or club and would like to supplement this training. Particularly if you find yourself a little between group levels.
- You play/train at another sport and find that running training benefits your performance.
- You have trouble with persistent niggles that break progress, and you want to find a way to break the cycle.
- You have a specific running goal, or an illusive PB you want to achieve.
What Can I Expect From It?
As the club is now in its second year, I can happily report that there have been some staggering improvements from members; especially from those who have been with me right from the start. It means such a lot that so many have stuck with me this whole time, and I generally try my hardest to reward that loyalty with as much value for money as possible.
You can also expect to have a good time, learn a few things and become a lot HARDER to the English weather conditions.
You will also get good at running over hills. This is non-optional 😉
