Before running with the north shore running and outdoor fitness group I struggled with the thought of getting up on a Saturday morning and being motivated but it was actually easier than I thought and I really enjoyed myself. The group is so supportive and friendly I just keep going back! When I started the training sessions I was surprised how easy I found it to stick with them. Sure I still struggle sometimes but Claire is a great motivator and treats everyone as an individual so that I can perform to my best. Group sessions are a great way to stay fit and meet people. Claire is super knowledgeable about fitness so you can make those changes you have been putting off. The group is friendly and always happy to see a new face so give it a go!
Prior to training with Claire I was a member of Fitness First. I joined a gym to diversify my exercise as I was constantly injured from running and playing netball. I quickly realised that I had no idea what I was doing in the gym so I engaged one of the gym trainers which was quite a dissatisfying experience. It was really expensive and I was also paying a monthly gym membership and to top it all off my program was exactly the same as the person who trained before and after me. I didn’t feel the trainer was listening to what I could or couldn’t do so there was no improvement in my back or knees. A friend of mine recommended Claire so I decided to give it a try despite my scepticism. Current Situation I now train with Claire up to 4 times a week in both a 1:1, partner and group environment so I can say I’m a convert! I have seen a massive improvement in my strength and I have been injury free for a couple of months and I feel great. Why I would recommend Claire Claire listens to your needs and is able to adapt programs to your current situation - even in a group environment. I recently attended one of her boxing sessions with a broken finger and she completely tailored the session to suit me while still running a boxing session for her group. She is personable and she knows what she is talking about. A few of my friends now train with her so I have no hesitation in referring her.
I have joined in with Claire’s Saturday run club most weekends for the past year. Claire is a knowledgeable, encouraging, positive trainer who is always on the lookout for ways to mix up our runs and keep everyone interested and on their toes. Her support over the last year, especially in the lead up to my first ever half marathon, has been exceptional and unwavering – I couldn’t have done it without her!
I used to enjoy running and training by myself but doing it with this group is much more fun and way more motivating. Achieving goals I didn’t think possible and getter fitter while having a few laughs along the way has kept me coming back for more.
Claire is the greatest trainer you could want! She manages to make every single session challenging yet enjoyable, and her commitment to each and every client improving and getting the results they want is something to be admired by all! You will never regret a work out with North Shore Running and Fitness and Claire will definitely keep you coming back for more!
As 39 year old man, I always wondered how to improve my running. After training and running with NS Running & Outdoor Fitness for less than 6 months, my running technique and speed has dramatically improved and my body looks great 😉 Now I have a cheeky laugh when I lap 20 year olds!
