There is increasing evidence to support the importance of doing strength and resistance training if you're a runner. If you're serious about increasing your distances, reducing your time and preventing injuries that stop you running longer term, strength and resistance training is crucial!
Our new Robust Runner Masterclasses are a series of practical sessions, with an informal educational element, designed you help you get the most from your running and enjoy a lifelong, injury free, running journey!
The sessions will take place in our fully equipped ‘Strong Room’ with our Sports & Rehabilitation Therapist, Will. Each Masterclass will start with a brief introduction and warm up. You’ll be guided through a series of practical exercises, in a circuit style, designed to educate you, challenge you and bring another element into your running.
You’ll get lot’s of chances to ask questions or seek advice along the way.
There are 7 sessions planned over the next few months. Each session will have a slightly different focus, come along to one or two of them or all of them, whatever’s most relevant to you and your running!.
