There are currently FOUR ways you can be inspired to run, with RA Dance Fitness. The first two are both completely FREE. Yes, that’s right FREE! For those who want lots of good running articles to read you can click over to the RA Fitness Blog (or click this link). Over there you’ll find years worth of written running content as Rhiannon shared her own journey of learning to run. You may find an article about the benefits of running up hills, what zwift is for runners, or a review of a week of training. What ever you find you can be sure to find something to help you with your own training.
However not everyone loves to read a blog post or review, so very slowly we’re adding to our free content by creating helpful YouTube videos to help runners and their training. Watch along as Rhiannon does a speed workout, runs around Bristol Habourside, or shares with you tips for new runners. Subscribe to the YouTube channel and you’ll be updated when new videos are added to the channel. Also feel free to suggest video topics and ideas!
Thirdly you can get involved by buying one of our run training plans. These offer you structured sessions throughout your week, that will help you achieve your goal. Created by a Personal Trainer and Run Leader these plans focus on what’s important during your training. Building up from one level to the next slowly is the key to reducing injury, which is why learning from a trainer is superior to any free online plan, as they cannot be verified. With our plans, they will be hard work, but they will get you to your goal, whether that’s completing your first 5km, or beating a PB. All plans are £7.50, and can be viewed below. They’re downloadable, so just pop them on a laptop, phone, or tablet and take them anywhere.
