What Our Participants Say

Running Made Easy was absolutely brilliant! In the space of a couple of months I went from not being able to run up the stairs to doing a 6.5K fun run. I’m also running 5k three times a week with no problems! She’s a miracle worker!


….the breathing and the stretching have made all the difference…I did Running Made Easy first and am just coming to the end of Keep Running this week….

It doesn’t matter what age you are….I’m 44 and am thoroughly enjoying the camaraderie and the running…The instructor keeps a watchful eye on your posture and gives us good advice and positive feedback.


My aim at the beginning or Running Made Easy was to be able to run through more than a single song. I just had to update my iPod because I more than achieved this goal. Our instructor amazed me week after week judging just how far to push us along from the first 1 minute run to the very last class. Great advice & encouragement for running and general fitness. I’m delighted I did the course & have already recommended it to others.


I have tried to run so many times down the years and gave up after a week or two. This course taught me the importance of pacing myself and I’m really enjoying running now.

Exercise because you love your body

Why do you exercise? Or eat healthy? Most people I see do so because they're not happy with their bodies so they want to lose weight (97% of the people I see) or improve it in some way. Exercise is something that no one really wants to do but if you want a body you're...
