Running does not have to be a solitary sport! The Pulse running squad is a happy, social bunch of people who enjoy a cuppa (or sometimes a bevvy!) after a training session. During fun runs and races, they'll be the familiar faces out there with you and cheering you on. Pulse runners know just how far a little support can go.
The Pulse running squad meets in Rozelle two days a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Morning and evening sessions are available for those needing to fit their fitness in before and after work. The morning group trains from 5:45am and is one of the largest running groups in the area, with up to 40 people. The group is capped at 45 people to make sure we can maintain quality individual coaching. The evening group trains at 6:45pm and currently has about 30 people (this number tends to grow during the warmer months and daylight savings time).
Varied and tailored sessions
Pulse Performance is more than a running group. Sessions involve a variety of exercises and training sets to build fitness, strength and confidence (and to keep it interesting!) Sprints, time trials, hill reps, core exercises, boxing, kettle bells and weights all find their way into the mix. Time is also spent before and after each session properly warming up, cooling down and stretching. Coach Dani tailors each session for the different levels of fitness and goals of the people in the squad, so beginners and more advanced runners, triathletes, trail runners and multi sports athletes are able to train together while still being challenged.
Pick the brain of a High Performance Coach and elite runner
With more than 25 years experience coaching and running at an elite level, Dani also loves to share his knowledge on correct running technique, preventing and treating injuries, race preparation and recovery, hydration and nutrition. Dani also has a great team of sports physiotherapists, chiropractors and massage therapists if required.
