Strength & Conditioning for Runners Workshops

We are in the midst of a new running boom. More and more people are putting on their trainers and hitting the roads, trails and tracks over a wide variety of distances. Whilst this is obviously an amazingly positive thing, running is a high injury-risk activity. During a 12 month period, the injury rate for running has been found to be as high as 30-59% (Reference 1). Put another way, runners suffer an injury roughly every 100 hours (of running) – or 2-3 injuries a year (Ref 2).

There is strong evidence that Strength & Conditioning training can reduce Injury risk by up to 50% (Ref 3).

The most common questions I get in clinic are how, when and why?

These 2 hour workshops aim to answer those questions.

– Learn the key components of Strength and Conditioning aimed specifically at running.

– Appreciate the importance of why we as runners should strength train.

– Leave with a full repertoire of equipment free, body weight exercises designed to keep you doing the thing you love – running!

– Help reduce your risk of injury

Improve endurance, and speed

– Understand where S&C fits into your programme

– Bust some myths about some common training and therapy concepts

Places are limited so early booking is recommended
