A fully personalised coaching programme, is developed around your goals, your current paces and built using our scientific models to achieve faster and faster times. These are the exact same methods elite athlete’s use to succeed. This means no wasted training time!


The key to running further ISN’T about running slightly longer each run. Personalised training sessions aim to develop your aerobic fitness and improve your anaerobic ceiling. This way, not only will your body handle the more miles you want to travel but you’ll be a faster and more efficient runner too!


The most common reason to give up running is injury and it’s usually due to following a generic programme. A personalised approach ensures a training programme built on phases and incorporates strength and conditioning to bulletproof your body, help you return from injury and even prevent future injuries!


Running is a great way to get fit and can be part of a weight-loss programme. There’s a lot to ensure you don’t become reliant on exercise to maintain your weight, personalised programmes build everything to help you achieve that, from exercise to nutrition, to mindset and flexible eating strategies that will lead to long-lasting change!


Running gives us time to think, time to escape, to focus on breathing and the natural environment rather than the screens we look at all day. Personalised coaching can support your well-being by providing running coaching complimented by exercise, breathing and mindset strategies to succeed in your week. We do the planning, so you don’t have to do any thinking.

Don't settle for second best, it'll only take longer and cost you more.

Time and time again I hear it. I wish I invested in a coach sooner, think how far I’d have come by now. I’ve even had one person say, I wish I’d found you first rather than wasting my money elsewhere.

Having an expert coach provides you with so much that a ‘cookie cutter’ programme can’t.

My athlete’s say it takes the headache of planning runs, away from them and gives them confidence in knowing there is a process leading towards the next race.

My client’s say it gives them confidence to know someone is there to guide them, to listen to them when they need help and provide them with the right training that their body needs but fits around their work and home life!


We write running training plan’s for all distances, races and abilities.


To get you started we can write a beginner’s running plan or maybe you need something more specific like a half marathon training plan or a marathon training program. 


These two distances are without a doubt the most popular event’s we coach and usually along the way, we’ll help you achieve some personal bests along the shorter distances like the 5k and 10k races.

Online running coaching is all about finding a running program to suit YOU!
Through the use of our consultation, I will develop the most effective way for you to achieve your goal, within the limitations of your lifestyle and job, it’s about flexibility, so let’s make it work!

"Within 6 months of working with Arj at performance physique I qualified for both British and English nationals, medalling in the 800metre freestyle. Along side this I achieved best times across all my events.

Arj is driven, dedicated and passionate about seeing his clients succeed. He goes above and beyond anything I could have expected from a coach. Willing to put him self out and always on hand to offer his expertise. No problem is too small, even if he doesn’t know the answer Arj will happily do the research  to find out.

Everything Arj does is focused and tailored to get the most out of each individual. "
