Learn to run

There is no such thing as "I'm not a runner"

This is an 8 week program which guides runners through the necessary technique, fitness and strength training to build up to running 30 minutes or 5km continuously.


This program is aimed at those who have never formally run before, or those just getting back into it after a long break. In between sessions, you have the option to complete homework runs.

Next Program begins 1st February 2021!

5-10km Speed

You can do the distance, now let's ramp up the speed. 

This is a 10 week program that focuses on increasing endurance and speed for up to 10km. You will be more than ready to hit the fun run or race circuit once it reopens!

This program is for those stepping up to the 10km distance after mastering 5km, or those wanting to increase their speed and strength. The schedule includes intervals, tempo runs, and long runs with optional strength training. These can be done face to face in our groups, or solo in your own time.

Strength and Conditioning

Running specific strength training

We believe that strength training and recovery are the two most under-utilised sessions on the regular runners regime. All led by our professional strength coaches, we offer small group strength classes, semi-private strength and conditioning and one-on-one strength training. Focus is placed on the unique mobility and muscle demands for both injury prevention and performance in road and trail runners. 



10 week group pass $190 (when purchased with one of the above programs)

Casual group session: $25

Semi-private strength and conditioning: from $44 per session

One-on-one strength training: $99
