There are five basic components of fitness, these are endurance, speed, strength, flexibility and coordination. As runners we regularly train the endurance and speed components of our fitness, however we also need to ensure we spend a little time focusing on the other three components. 

Strength - Muscular strength is the ability of of the body to exert force and is important in every sport. The muscle fibres within the muscles respond when subjected to weight or resistance. This will make the muscle more efficient and able to respond better. This class will use resistance exercises using your own body weight to improve you strength endurance.

Flexibility - the ability to perform joint actions through a wide range of motion. Injury can occur when a limb or muscle is forced beyond its normal limits. Flexibility training will gradually increase a joints range of motion and help express power through the optimal range of motion. Restricted flexibility is one of the common causes of poor technique and performance. Poor flexibility can also hinder running speed and endurance as muscles have to work harder to overcome the resistance to efficient stride length.

Coordination - the ability to carry out a complicated movement involving more that one sequence or body part at the same time. Coordination is one of the elements of 'physical literacy' and is generally developed in child hood. However for adults taking up running for the first time without a background in another sport or returning to running these basic skills may be dormant or not developed. Coordination exercises and drills remain important as they maintain the balance against imbalances causes by very specific training.

The different components of fitness rarely operate in isolation and in practice there is no such thing as 'pure' strength or 'pure' coordination exercises. The Strength, Flexibility and Coordination Class will work with your endurance and speed to improve your overall physical fitness.
