Run Day

Your warm ups and cool downs. Start your run right and get the right muscles fired up with a pre run warm up.  Post run, there are two cool downs to choose from, one for those in a hurry and another for a deep stretch and recovery.

Once A Week Workouts

3 short workouts to strengthen the most important areas for running. Do these workouts once a week. We focus on the calves, glutes and core to improve foot, hip and knee biomechanics, build stability and avoid common running injuries. 

The first week is about creating length in the body and releasing tension. You will also start to build the foundational strength in the postural muscles.

How should I use the Running Series?


On the day of your run, watch the Running Warm Up (before you run) and the Running Cool Down (after you run). Then make sure you complete the 3 classes in the “Once A Week Workouts” section every week to ensure your body is building up running specific strength. These will only take you 30 minutes. Then, try to incorporate the other Strength and Recovery classes into your week. Download the Weekly Movement Schedule under the Resources tab for an outline on how to incorporate the Pilates classes into your week.




Why is Pilates important for running?


The right Pilates exercises directly translate into your running technique. For example, a side lying clam exercise strengthens the gluteus medius and maximus muscles, which can improve the way your knees land and push off when you run. A strong core will support your back as you run, strong calves support your ankles and feet and strong quads will ensure a powerful push off! All these exercises can also prevent injury.




How important is Recovery after running?


It’s essential! Proper recovery involves stretching or rolling of muscles including your hip flexors, glutes, hamstrings and upper back. Running can make your body tight but if you have the right tools and you honour your recovery, your body can feel great.
