A fresh perspective
Functional Running makes running Coaching accessible to recreational and beginners runners through our Coached Group Running Services. We bring a modern approach to running Coaching that factors in lifestyles, busy schedules and the need for broad physical development. We aren’t blinded by performance, and warmly welcome recreational and beginner runners alike. Developing effective postural control and postural endurance are emphasised as much as steady, cyclical, intelligent training progression.
Our Coaching approach is social and friendly, and we never ‘just run’ with all sessions Coached and monitored. Believing in the importance of broad development, we purposefully include movement variety, not just across running sessions, but in complimentary training methods, such as functional strength and mobility.
We believe specialisation as runners makes us weak as humans; strong while running, compromised anywhere else. So, we encourage greater respect for all modes of movement and promote form before performance. Our coaching philosophy is that postural control and movement awareness are the fundamentals of running fitness progression.
Locations: Based around O’Connor and Civic, meet points can include Black Mountain, O’Connor Ovals, Lake Burley Griffen and Mt Ainlsie.
