Run Club & Prehab Strength
Our run club is open to all abilities and the emphasis is always on having fun. So, it doesn’t matter if you’re a total beginner looking to get into running or an experienced athlete looking for a structured session.
Our friendly and inclusive run club could be the thing that helps you achieve the consistency required to reach your goals.
Monday Run Club
Monday evening’s popular run session is coached by Tanya (see coach profile below). Its appeal lies in the fact it is simply a lovely group of people out there having fun.
How it works
Join Tanya via Zoom for the warm-up and activation of key muscle groups before you head out on your run. Each session has a specific focus and during the warm-up, Tanya will set out the structure for your self-lead 20min interval session. Runners will then re-group on Zoom at 6:30pm for the core section of the session, followed by a cool down.
All abilities are welcome, especially those new to running in need of a helping hand getting started.
Session start time: 6:00pm.
Prehab Strength Sessions
Do you suffer from constant niggles or have done so in the past? Or do you feel that you should be doing something strength related to keep injury free but are too busy running?! These short sessions are a great way to break up your day, keep you moving and prod you to do the prehab work you know deep down that you should be doing!
Our Prehab Strength class is 30-minutes and designed to focus on key areas for preventing running injuries. Each session will work on flexibility, mobility and strength with an emphasis on evening out muscular imbalances. No equipment is needed although resistance bands or light weights (including a backpack of books!) will help.
There are two sessions each week at 3pm: Wednesday’s session will focus on foot and ankle issues; and Friday’s on knee/hip/lower back niggles. For a complete prehab protocol, we would genuinely recommend attending both each week.
Coached via live video link, Tanya will walk you through the session, answer any of your questions and help you perform the exercises with correct form.
Please note that although these sessions are there to help prevent injury and aid in rehab, if you have constant / acute pain then it is always best to consult a physio or doctor first.

Prehab Strength – Feet & Ankle Issues
