Run Technique Course Oct 1st to Nov 7th

Then on Tuesday October 1st Coach Lou will start another 6 week run program. Improve your run technique, reduce your run times and enjoy some time out in the fresh air.



Please post in comments if you are interested in another Gymnasty Course. Proposed dates are 26 Nov to 19 Dec. Not sure if you should do a Gymnasty Course? Here is what Leone has to say: This gymnasty course came at the right time for me. I surprised myself with things I could actually do (cartwheels and head stands) and how much easier they were to do once I learnt the correct technique (double unders-yes!)  When i signed up I didn’t actually think id be able to do much like hold myself up in a handstand. Which is encouraging to see in another way the strength I’ve gained over the last year and a half.

There were also things that are just within my grasp, so it’s given me some reachable goals and the know how to work towards them.
Truman is extremely jealous, and other members have noticed the improvements ive made too and go ‘woah thats so cool, look at you go!’ And I strut my stuff and say ‘yeah i got if from gymnasty baby!’As well as I notice other members technique and go, they must’ve done gymnasty!
Like barbell club, I’ve found the extra courses have made the world of difference in my performance at the gym, still tonnes to work on but at least I have a slightly better idea of what I should be doing. I guess that means i probably should do one of those running ones haha
I’m used to working out at night, so the time didn’t really bother me. 4 weeks was good though, especially over the winter. As we only come at 630 it meant it didn’t interfer too long with our usual schedule plus it gave me something to do while tru was away.
I like the workouts not being timed and being based more about form.
I got a couple chest to bar pull ups tonight!! Forgot to push away, but I didn’t actually think I’d get that far, so I’m stoked!

Thanks again Lou
