You Can Run Better Than Ever!

Through private or semi-private lessons, learn better technique and better training methods to run safer, stronger and longer than ever.



Would you like to make running movement safer and stronger, allowing you to go longer and enjoy it more?

Learn a much safer, more comfortable, and more efficient way to run and train.

You will enjoy running more than ever!

Private training is suitable for those who…

  • have not run previously.
  • have run but would like to run faster.
  • have running-related injury, aches or pains.
  • feel the need for improving running form.
  • feel inefficient in movement.
  • feel out of shape.
  • feel self-conscious and would like some privacy while learning.
  • need accountability to exercise.
  • know little about proper running and training.

If there is any doubt, it would be appropriate to be cleared by your doctor (and perhaps a sports physio-therapist for those who have been injured) to participate in a run training program.

If you have any questions about whether you are ready for private training please contact us to discuss your situation.
