Personal Run Coaching (KIDS)

We regularly coach children one-on-one in order to improve their running technique and fitness. Common challenges that parents relay to us include:

  • A desire to improve run endurance for other sports they play
  • Wanting to improve fitness gradually after a significant injury
  • A desire to learn correct breathing and pacing to be able to run longer
  • Improve performance and race strategy for Cross Country or Athletics 

We can assist with all these goals in a professional and engaging way. We can also utilise video analysis as a tool to identify and correct technique deficiencies (additional cost).

Active Kids & Adults

Active Kids

Developing a love of being active at an early age is so important. With screen time increasing, we are seeing significant health issues with over 25% of Australian children today classified as overweight or obese.  The key is to make being active FUN and ACHIEVABLE for all kids (not just the sporty ones)
