I cannot say enough about your program. If I can learn to run, anyone can... thanks to Robyn and Sarah
The "couch to 5kms" at Heart Strong Fitness was everything I hoped for and more! This program is set up for success and is for true running beginners! Throughout this program we received education from a dietician, a kinesiologist, a physiotherapist, a long distant runner to name a few - along with a tonne of useful info about strength training geared towards runners, recovery and stretching. Thanks to Robyn and Sarah for all the coaching and training - these two are some of the most positive and supportive people I know.
