Sam Ayers, owner of the very popular BodyFit Cumbria organisation, is now running a Junior Club. See information below and the booking form for further details.
"Our BodyFit Junior Running Club is organised in conjunction with the Cockermouth Primary Schools Consortium.
The sessions will be coached by Sam Ayers, Tony Jewell and Hazel Davies who are all England Athletics qualified coaches; are fully insured and DBS cleared. They will also be assisted by teachers from the local schools and other adult volunteers. Sam is also a Level 3 Endurance Coach and works with both England and British Athletics in a team management role.
What will we do? Each session will have the following format: 1. Warm up and running drills, focusing on endurance running technique, speed, agility and quickness 2. Main session, will focus on building the speed-endurance running ability of the group, i.e. build up the amount of time they can run without stopping, at a fast pace with good technique. 3. Cool down and stretch
The sessions will be fun and inclusive and will encourage runners of all abilities. There will be opportunities to take part in local junior events and races such as the Keswick Junior parkrun and junior races organised by local clubs."
