How it Works

Get up to Five is an 8 week group training programme with 3 x group sessions each week. Our coaching team guides you through each session as you follow the Get up to Five programme. 

There are 3 levels of programme to choose from: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. You choose which level you follow depending on your ability and what feels comfortable to you when you start with the group. 

Each session has 3 sections:

  1. Body weight strength circuit lead by our coaches. The strength movements you do focus specifically on the key areas of the body that needs to get stronger for the running movement.

  2. After the strength circuit you move on to the walk/jog section

  3. Stretch at the end of the session. 

  4. All sessions are 60mins in duration.
