Saturday Session & Upcoming Events

Saturday Session

Join us again this Saturday for a Strength and Conditioning session - especially designed for runners!!

We hope you have been consistent in completing your S&C program at home, so you might even be ready to up your weights this week! I know I am.

We have been getting great feedback about the first program so thanks heaps.

Location: Captain Burke Park (under Story Bridge)
Time: 6am - 7:30am
Coffee afterwards, of course. 
Cost: Great value only $2 for members, $4 non-members. 

Remember regardless of what distance or why you run as long as you can into the future (which I am sure is a goal for all of us!) you need to continuously condition your body. 


The plan is to have 2 S&C Saturday Sessions per month. However, this is not nearly enough of this type of training to be effective. So, to gain the most benefit we would encourage runners to attend our session and then conduct their own sessions during the week using the guide posted on Facebook after the session.

Come along and learn how to perform each exercise correctly, plus get a great running workout that will not only improve your overall fitness and strength but will improve your running as well.

Weight will be used for these sessions, so, as we don't own 20 sets of weights, can you please bring your own set of dumbbells. If you are unsure of the amount of weight to bring here is a simple test:

You will want 40% of your max single rep bicep curl. To do this do a standing bicep curl using a weight heavy enough to only perform 1 rep. You will want 40% of this weight. Eg: I lift 30kg so I will be using a set of 12kg weights. Renae lifts 12kg, so she will be using a set of 4kg weights. If you are still unsure, use what you use during pump.classes. You can also use elastic therabands if you have them. You only need one set of weights for all exercises (e.g. 2 x ?kg dumbbells)

We welcome members and non-members, runners and walkers or those recovering from running injuries.
