Have you set a goal involving running?

Are you a new runner?

Or perhaps you have been running for a while but can't seem to reach potential? 

We want to do our best to make sure injury doesn't stop you from reaching your goal!

Did you know 42% of people don't make it to the start line due to injury?

And that 16-33% of people will have an injury in the lead up to an event!

Here are some questions you can ask yourself; 

  1. Are you new to running?
  2. Is your BMI above 30? (useful site to help calculate)
  3. Do you sleep less than 7 hours a night?
  4. Have you been inactive the last 6 months?
  5. Do you have bad nutritional habits?
  6. Are you stressed at work or in your home life?
  7. Do you land on your heels when you run?
  8. Do you have a long stride when you run?
  9. Do your knees touch when you run?
  10. Do you wake up sore the morning after a run?


If you are answering yes to any of these questions they can play a role in injury management! So, let your Personal Trainer know so we can help decrease your chance of injury and get you to that finish line!
