Runner Bean Improves
Improvers Running and Nutrition Programme
You can run continuously for 30 minutes but would like to improve your performance, whether it's speed, distance or endurance.
Well, our Runner Bean Improvers could be for you.
Combining running and nutrition, Runner Bean Improvers will help you develop your speed, stamina, distance and pace, as well as giving you a variety of nutrition tips for enhancing your performance and helping your recovery.
Sarah Baryga, our fully qualified personal trainer and sub 3 hour marathon runner, has completed this very journey herself and can guide you with a multitude of techniques and ideas, including:
- Interval training
- Hill work
- Increasing distance
- Resistance exercises to enhance performance
- Dynamic warm-up and cool down techniques to prevent injury
Log your current time now and after the 4 weeks, we'll run the Shanaganagh Park Run where you can clock your improvements.
In addition to our guided running programme, Helen Cassidy, owner of foodhugs, qualified nutritional therapist, and lecturer with the Irish Institute of Nutrition and Health, will teach you how to maximise your energy with nutrition tips, tricks and tasters.
Over the 4 weeks, you will learn what pre- and post workout snacks and meals should look like, how to stay hydrated, what foods to choose for muscle recovery as well as receiving lots of healthy eating tips and recipes for all the family to enjoy.
After training, you will also enjoy a nutritious post workout snack and a cup of something hot (or cold) to rehydrate.

- 4 guided runs with Sarah including warm up/variety of training techniques/cool down (45 mins)

Read some of the testimonials below from previous participants:
"I enjoyed lots of great recipes, fitness tips and the social side. It changed my family’s eating habits and I got great advice on staying fit and healthy. As a result, I feel really motivated to exercise."
"Loved the warm up, cool down and discovering that it is possible to chat and run. I loved all the delicious healthy treats as well as the easy recipes and brand suggestions. The nutrition treats were so welcome after the run and I was so much more motivated to try recipes after having tried them. "
"I learnt so much from this and wanted to come every week (unlike my non-used gym membership). I’ve done other ‘transformation’ packages in the past where the diet has been too restrictive and unsustainable. This was practical and I appreciated all the running and nutrition tips."
