Bespoke training plan for weight loss

This training plan is created specifically to help you achieve and maintain your preferred or ideal weight by running.

Why is running so effective for weight loss?

For two reasons:
Firstly, as everyone knows, physical activities demand energy for fuel. Some activities consume more than others and some are easier to do. For example, cross-country skiing is reckoned to be about the highest consumer of energy for the endurance sports. This is great if you have the environment, equipment and desire to partake regularly in the activity. However, for most of us, it's not a practical proposition to add cross-country skiing into our day-to-day lives.
Running is another very high consumer of energy. It's also very easy to do, needs very little in the way of equipment and clothing and can easily be introduced so that it becomes part of your regular lifestyle.
So with running, we have the ideal combination: effective weight loss, and practical ease.

Secondly, once you begin to run, running become more than just a way to lose weight. It becomes something far greater than that. This means different things to different people. If you are a social person, it provides opportunity for great camaraderie and lifelong friendships. Conversely, if you are more of a solitary animal, it offers a way to get away from everyone and everything. If you are competitive, then it can offer all the competition you want. The point here is that running in itself becomes very important in itself for the many people that do it. And as far as weight loss is concerned, this almost guarantees that you'll have a subconscious motivation to eat more healthily, and live your life in way that makes your running easier not harder.

Why choose our training schedules for weight loss?

So, our weight-loss coaching is different to others. It recognises that running for weight loss is not the same as running for competition or running just for the sake of good health. Because the real recipe for success for weight loss is to find a way that alters the way you live your life, not necessarily radically, but enough to bring about the physiological and more important psychological changes that must occur if you are to lose weight and then maintain it your new weight and body shape as normal for you — without effort.

Our schedules come in three durations: 8, 16 or 24 weeks.
For some, 8-weeks will be enough. Once they learn the ropes, they are fine on their own. Others prefer the reassurance and extra guidance that the longer schedule offers.
