Injury prevention and gait retraining
Do you get injured frequently? It could be how you run. I offer gait retraining sessions. During the session I will analyse your gait (how you run) and identify any problems, I can then prescribe interventions including drills, strength training and stretches to correct your gait. These sessions cost £60 and last approximately 1 hour.
1-2-1 run coaching
If you would like to improve your running or would like to learn to run individually, I offer 1-2-1 coaching. I charge £150 for 5 x 45 min sessions or £180 for 5 x 1 hour sessions.
Are you training for a marathon or would like more structure to your training? I can provide bespoke training plans from £25.
We hold regular learn to run courses for complete beginners, however you are welcome to join the main group at any time no matter what your ability. Over six weeks you'll learn how to run using our tried and tested walk/run method. You will also learn how to warm up and cool down, how to choose the correct trainers and sports bras, the correct technique to avoid injuries and much more. You'll also join the supportive learn to run online group. On week 6 you'll complete 5k (running or walking is fine) and receive a medal. You are now an official "Upjogger". 6 weeks costs £20 and can be booked in the link above.
