Strength and conditioning are key to being a good runner. They stop you getting injured, give you better movement in your body and ultimately make you faster.

Is this something you would like?

As a runner, deciding which training plan to follow can be difficult.

Traditional plans are usually designed to steadily increase your mileage as you get closer to race day, but this makes it difficult to find the time to fit in any gym work. If you do start omitting your strength training, this can lead to problems such as tight hips or pain in the knees and feet.

If these issues aren’t addressed, your ability to run will be affected and you may even start to worry about whether you’ll make it to the start line.

Here at Fundamental Sports and Fitness we take a different approach.

Our running training programme at our Nottingham Studio has been designed with all of this in mind to include strength and conditioning work as well as tips to help you improve your running form.

So, whether you love pounding the pavement, sweating on a treadmill, running 10k, picking up medals at marathons or you’re ready for your first triathlon then this is the place for you.  

You’ll find our core-based exercises will strengthen your abdominal muscles and improve your stability and posture when running. We’ll also work on your legs so you feel confident that whether the miles you’re covering are short or up to half-marathon length, it will feel easy.

You’ll know that once get to the start line of your race, you’ll be in top shape and will have the right mindset to run your best race.
