Our bespoke training option is a great value way of engaging a specialist running coach to create a plan specific to you, without the additional cost of face-to-face training sessions. Our coaches will hold an initial consultation with you, to help us best understand your goals, current training levels and your lifestyle. After the initial consultation, your coach will create a bespoke training plan for you to follow. You will communicate regularly with your coach, as you complete your pre-scheduled training sessions. Your coach will update your plan on a bi-monthly basis to ensure that we help you achieve your goals.
Bespoke coaching is charged as a fixed monthly subscription and we recommend you commit to a minimum period of 3 months in order to make the most of your coaches specialist knowledge and your bespoke plan.

“Increase mileage and intensity gradually – a rough rule of thumb is to increase mileage by no more than 10% each week.”
“Get more good quality sleep. Sleep is when your body adapts physically and mentally to training. Aim for at least 8 hours per night.”
“Recovery is key. Don’t overdo it and remember to take regular rest days – these are when your body recovers, rebuilds and becomes stronger.”
“Eat clean to fuel your runs. A healthy mix of carbs, proteins and fats, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and minimal processed food.”
“Consistency is key – you will see improvements if you train consistently.”
“Work on running technique using drills to improve form, make you more efficient and reduce the risk of injury.”
“ParkRun is a great way to measure your improvement over shorter distances, allowing you to run the same course on a regular basis.”
“Make sure your running shoes fit well – you should have around a thumbs width gap between the end of your toes and the end of the shoe.”
“Yoga and pilates are great for runners, for stretching muscles and improving proprioception, as well as enhancing core strength.”
“Include strength and conditioning in your training plan to increase power and reduce risk of injury.”
“Mix up your training – include hills, intervals, tempo runs and easy runs to keep your body working in different ways and to maintain progression.”
“Make sure your easy runs really are easy – around 65% - 70% of max heart rate or at a pace where you can easily hold a conversation.”
