Race training & monthly programmes
If you are training for a specific event or simply want a regular monthly programme to improve form and fitness, I design programmes that integrate Chi Running focusses into sessions including long slow distance, race pace, intervals, hills, fartlek (speed play), negative splits and recovery. The emphasis throughout is on technique and gradual process – developing form then distance and finally speed. Ensuring you are physically, mentally and emotionally prepared.
Sessions are arranged outdoors or in the studio/gym. Studio-base training sessions are held at Premier Fitness Club, Finsbury Park, London N4 3JP (no gym membership required).
Oxygen Advantage Breathing Programme
The Oxygen Advantage Breathing Programme has been developed by Patrick McKeown who has worked as a Buteyko breathing practitioner for over 15 years. The technique highlights the fact that learning to breathe through the nose and reducing, rather than increasing the amount of breath you take can have a positive effect on so many areas of your life.
This programme is also suited to 1-2-1 Visual PT sessions.

- delay the onset of fatigue and lactic acid
