"If you want to become the best runner you can be, start now. Don’t spend the rest of your life wondering if you can do it."  Priscilla Welch

Did you watch the London Marathon & think, hmm that could be me next year? Do you run but need some help with technique? Have you been running for years, but never seem to get any faster? Are you a beginner who needs a bit of motivation to run more?

Then get in touch. We know the perfect person to help.

Our Trainer, Claire, ran a personal best a couple of weeks ago at the London Marathon. She did it in 2hrs 45 mins & was 6th non-elite woman across the finish line!

Claire's not only a formidable runner, she's an amazing Personal Trainer & Running Coach. She'll first observe & evaluate your running & then work with you to improve your efficiency & speed. Not only will this help you to become a better runner, it'll also reduce your chances of getting injured.

Don't be intimidated by her swiftness, Claire is brilliant at helping all levels of runners from beginners through to advanced.
