Running For Fitness, (and wellbeing!) 

Explaining the whys and what for’s as to how i got here today maybe better suited to a natter over a brew, i’ll pop a timeline a little lower down this page so you can see it in an outlined form.
My initial concept as an England Athletics registered Running for fitness coach, is in my eyes quite simple. I want you to move.

Benefits of Running
– Raises heart rate which reduces blood pressure.

– Takes your mind off those things that have troubled you, allowing you to feel refreshed.
– Get a good kick of endorphins (happy hormones)
– Get to have a good natter, without interruptions from kids and phones,
– Accountability, knowing others are going out with you gives you a reason to go out.
– Getting problems off your chest, (no really, it’s amazing what we yap about)
– burning calories, and i mean an INSANE amount if you choose to run longer
– Make new friends who know what you have been through,
– Have someone behind you helping you make choices for diet and fitness.

FAQ
Questions you may ask

What are your qualifications?
I have a Leadership in Running FItness (England Athletics). Enhanced CRB, Safeguarding certificate, and am studying for a Sports Coaching Certificate.

What sessions will you offer?
Initially it will be beginner sessions in a walk run format. I will extend these to full run sessions as and when people are comfortable with it.

I also offer one on one sessions, should you wish to train for something specific, or would rather have a more personalised coaching session.
Please get in touch and we can discuss your needs.

What about the cost?
Group Sessions are £3.00, (block discounts are available).  If you would prefer a private Session, I work on an hourly rate of £5 per 15 mins for my time in Peel, with an extra   surcharge of £5  Anywhere else on The Island.
(discounts available for long term contracts)

Why I Am Doing this
In my experience as “Coach” I’ve had a group of mums that have consistently run, i’ve coached 3 of them from nothing to half marathons, others have reduced 5k and 10k times.
As Myself i am not a “runner”, (not since before 2014 anyway) I am a former fatty, whose back to being fat again, battled depression for the last twenty years, and frankly have a rather bad habit of comfort eating foods that are really not good for me at all.
I know what it’s like to sit at home and want to change but not know how to. However, i am not here to preach, but ask and I shall tell. Before we continue on with the rest of the page, let me give you some suggestions, and they may not all be relevant to you as to why you COULD join me for a running for fitness session. (including those of you who can’t run but CAN walk. )

``Coach``

Earlier in the year, i’d been approached by a friend to help them get running, it was soon dropped on me that not only would she start running, but she wanted to run a half marathon. 18 weeks later. We crossed the line, in 2:22 and the girls raised over £500 for “Bella”

Should have raced in the 2016 Syd Quirk Half Marathon. i wasn’t well, and didn’t compete. was the start of a new bout of depression that would last long into 2017 and beyond.
