In just 11 weeks you'll be running 5Km because...

Most people hate running because they make one or more common mistakes.  It just feels awful.  Our friendly, supportive coaches will share all the tricks to make running feel more comfortable.

You'll improve your technique

We’ll teach you stride rate, foot strike and posture so you’re running better with less effort.  We’ll help you achieve your goal without risk of injury or overtraining.

You'll train with people just like you

All participants are complete beginners.  A gradual, impeccably planned program designed so you don’t need to keep up and no one will wait for anyone else.  No pressure!

Whenever you join a new fitness group/activity, you’re so anxious that you’ll be terrible and embarrassingly uncoordinated and/or unfit and it’s quite a daunting experience normally. But I think whats so special about Healthy Balance Fitness is that you have a real philosophy of building on people’s strengths rather than focussing on deficits, and encourage us to just go at our own pace and celebrate our own milestones rather than worry about being slowest/weakest in the class… I think what makes you guys so amazing and unique to other groups out there.

What makes you guys amazing and unique

On Sunday I completed the 4km run leg of the AustralianSuper corporate triathlon, my goal for starting the running training.  I definitely would not have been able to complete a 4km run, and in only 28:02, without Jill and Brenda’s excellent coaching and persistence with me.  THANK YOU!

Thanks for a great program. I cannot believe that I was able to complete 25 minutes of straight jogging on Saturday evening!  Never thought it was something I could do!  It wasn’t easy at all…but I did it!!

When I started boot camp I couldn’t run the 2 blocks to the tram without hyperventilating, and now I’ve competed in two 10k races and on a recent road trip I got up early every morning to jog along the beach. It really has been a complete lifestyle overhaul.

I’m loving running way more than I ever expected to, and am really looking forward to completing an event. Thanks for running such an open and welcoming program where even complete novices feel part of the team! I think you’ve earned a long-term convert to the running cause.

I joined the beginner group to help ease myself back into running. The group is a great pace and everyone works to their own ability and feels part of the group throughout. The trainers are great and I have made some friends along the way. I never thought I would look forward to going for a run after work.
