This programme is specifically designed for runners by a Specialist Running Strength and Conditioning Coach.

It will provide you with high quality strength & power training guidance which is specific to runners with at least 2 years of strength training experience or who have completed the advanced programme.

This power training programme lasts 8 weeks. It includes 3x 45-60mins sessions per week, which slowly progress as you improve & adapt to the training.

You will have access to detailed description & video guidance for correct exercise technique.

This can be completed alongside your running training or as a stand alone programme. It should be completed following a period of strength training phase for example the advanced strength training programme (see my other programmes available).

This training programme is perfectly designed to improve your running performance leading up to a competition or race.

Not only will you feel better, but you'll be able to run further and faster by the end!

So why wait to start your strength and conditioning journey!?

Choose this programme today to power train with confidence.

Injury Prevention
Getting stronger improves our bodies ability to cope with the demands of training. This means as your training increases you'll be able to tolerate the fatigue and training load required to get fitter & faster. Without adequate strength your bodies risk to injury increases.

Run Faster
Improving your power can unlock your potential to run faster. Powerful muscles & tendons can produce more force which in turn can enable you to run faster which is ultimately every runners goal!

Balanced Training
Solely focussing on running will only improve one thing, running. This exposes you to the common injuries & issues that running brings. Adding resistance training into you week will balance out your body by improving bone health, reduce muscle loss & maintain a healthy weight.
