Spin and Brick starting from this Wednesday 23rd May

Now that we have long daylight hours we are now doing run brick during the final 30mins of the Wednesday spin sessions. 

Please bring your run shoes as well as your usual spin gear from tomorrow. 

Those who are unable to run the spinner studio will still be available - however this won’t be coached, at your own risk and you still pay for the 90min session. 

Looking forward to it. See you tomorrow.

One place remaining on run course and S&C

Hi all

This week is the final week of strength and conditioning at the Castle, but that’s because it’s moving to its summer home of Brockwell Park from next Wednesday. Over the summer it’s body weight based so that it won’t get in the way of any races you have coming up (and so coaches don’t have to lug weights up to the top of the hill!) and is a perfect way to keep your body balanced and stable and hopefully prevent injury.

Sessions will be 7am on Wednesdays…

Run Course - Battersea AM Confirmed. Still time to vote for Tooting PM

Hi all, 

We are running the run course again! This 6 week course will get your running technique in top form, learning the fundamentals of good running technique and trying to begin to undo some of the results of modern life (poor posture, inactive glutes etc) that hold us back from being able to run as our bodies intended.

The course cost includes a 5 week run plan with run sessions for you to do each week, in addition to the course, plus some simple strength and conditioning…

Windrush ‘official’ WhatsApp chat
