Run Faster and Get Stronger with RunFit!
The evidence is clear: combining strength training with running training leads to greater performance benefits than running alone. And Runfit is the ideal way to combine a running workout with run-specific strength training. Plus its fun, social, and closely supervised by an elite Athletics Australia run coach!
Runfit is a brand new class that is included in our Group Fitness memberships. As well as giving you a great workout it can help you run faster, stronger and prevent injury. It includes fast-paced treadmill intervals combined with running-specific strength exercises.
Professionally Designed Running Sessions
You’ll have your running and strength workouts designed by Ben Liddy, an Accredited Level 4 Athletics Australia coach plus a highly experienced running physio. Sessions start with a dynamic warm-up where you’ll be guided through a series of running-specific technical drills to help improve your running form. And with a maximum of 6 people per class you get expert supervision from a coach who really gets to know you.
After your warm-up you’ll be taken through some demanding interval sessions on the treadmill. Although Runfit is a fast-paced class, a major benefit of small group sizes is that your workout is closely adjusted for your personal fitness level and running ability.
‘Recovery’ during the intervals takes on a new dimension, with running-specific strength exercises added to the program to keep your heart rate high. This unique fitness element really drives strength into the big running muscles like your quads, hamstrings, calfs and glutes.
Runfit is great for people looking to add intensity into their running programs. It will help boost your running speed, and the high-intensity workout will push your fitness to new levels. Plus having a different group-based session or two in your week can really keep you motivated and loving your running.
