Small Group Outdoor Fitness Class
Wednesdays 7-7.50pm, Oak Hill Park
Saturdays 8.20-9.10am, Trent Country Park
There's a little bit of everything here, a small but friendly group of boot campers to share the experience with, a small amount of running (amount is optional, so don't be scared!) and a mix of bodyweight exercises, HIIT exercise with some equipment thrown into the mix.
This is not a hardcore scary 'shouty' boot camp, but nor is it a lazy persons paradise, classes are open to all fitness levels as the exercise intensity is tailored to your ability. You will have the option to push yourself as hard as you want with no pressure to do more than you are comfortable with. Group sizes are kept small to ensure exercises can be supervised adequately and everyone gets to work at their own pace..
Online Running Coaching
I love running and feel I have a lot of knowledge and experience to share, however until now I could only share that with a small number of running clients and fellow Trent Park running club members.
I have now launched online running coaching as a service. I should make it clear that you are not buying a generic "insert 12week training plan here", the type of plan you can find with the most simple of google searches. I am instead offering the service that can go beyond the set plan to allow you to speak with, email or text a running coach to answer the questions you're struggling with. Subject to a common sense fair use policy, you can have regular discussions about your training, what is working, what isn't, advice on nutrition, pacing, race strategy, injuries, stretching and whatever other questions crop up. If location permits there is even the option to top up with occasional discounted 1-1 training although this is very much an extra.
I don't make claim to be the best or to have ever been someone who challenged for the top places however in terms of improvement on a curve my personal achievements have exceeded anything I'd ever imagined and I have led clients to also achieve goals they never though possible. The key on both fronts was always regular quality training that I adapted to suit the individual. The changing demands of lifestyle, training opportunity and the myriad other factors that sometimes mean following your typical standardised 'print off the internet' training plan just wasn't cutting it.
