How Julie got back to running

Just wanted to share with you a really great story from one of our patients. Julie is in her late 40’s and came to see me wanting to get back into running after 15 years of a sedentary lifestyle. She had a history of chronic back pain. Over 6 weeks she had 8 sessions running on our AlterG treadmill starting at 60% body weight and gradually increasing to 90% body weight. She then progressed to 2-3 runs per week outdoors with no pain. She recently completed the Mother’s Day classic with no pain at all!

Getting back to running a little later in life can be hard. Our Alter G Treadmill allows you to run at reduced gravity loads which reduces the impact of running. This lets you concentrate on technique over a longer period before fatigue sets in and results and less soreness the following day.

With the time to start training for the City to Bay nearing, we are offering a gap free come and try session. This will help you get back up and running confidently before you start pounding the pavement.

So if you are new to running or returning from injury gives us a call on 08 82322268 and lets us help you get moving again.
