Running is in our genes! More and more people are putting on their trainers and hitting the roads, trails and tracks, from Couch-to-5km, to Ultra-marathoners.

Whilst this is obviously an amazingly positive thing, running can be 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 (2).

The most common question I get in clinic is 

how do I reduce my chance of getting injured?”

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

Why listen to me?

For over a decade, I have helped 1000’s of runners of all ages compete at all levels; to enable them to get the their Start Line in the best possible condition; and to simply enjoy their running – even when they had been told that they couldn’t, or shouldn’t.

I am also a (very average!) runner myself, and so understand the runner’s mindset and psychological need to run.

Let me show you how you can increase consistency, reduce aches and pains, and continue to enjoy your running.

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