Personalised Training program

NEP is built upon personalised training for runners of varying abilities and ambitions. We pride ourselves on giving training plans and training sessions  that work with people's schedules and what are specific to your goals. Our training plans are based heavily on science and knowledge acquired from leading research and knowledge built through our own experiences as elite runners.

What does a personalised Training Plan involve?

"There are champions everywhere. Every street's got them. All we need to do is train them properly" - Aurthur Lydiard

  1. Training plans are delivered on an app you can carry around on your phone.

  2. 1-1's, small focused groups and larger training groups are factored into your plan based on your needs.

  3. Zoom strength & conditioning and yoga sessions delivered LIVE and recorded to our training app.

  4. Personalised paces, training zones, and specific sessions are built into your plan.

  5. Direct communication to your coach. NEP is built on personalisation and we are on your journey with you.

What ability do you need to be to join NEP?

We coach all abilities and pride ourselves on being fully inclusive to all. You will also get a tremendous amount of support from the wider NEP community.

How are we different from the rest of the North East running community?

 

Head Coaches Kieran and Ben were dissatisfied with the direction the North East running community was heading and wanted to create a club that was specific to the individual and one free of politics and traditional cliques. Modernisation and a professional approach to coaching are of the highest priority in Team NEP.

What does a typical training week look like with NEP?

Your week is personalised to you but key themes involve easy running to build your aerobic house, strength and conditioning to build your foundations, and key sessions aimed at target paces to get you closer to your goal. Every NEP athlete has their own personalised training plan on an app, we also meet up to deliver your key sessions with you in person either as part of a 1-1 session or in a group environment.

How much does it cost to train with NEP?

Our training plans and sessions combined are between £30 to £60 per month depending on the amount of contact time with your coach. You may cancel at any time if you feel the program isn't working for you.

What does the first training session involve?

Your first session with your coach will involve a baseline measurement of current running fitness and a chat on developing your personalised plan around your goals. It's a big step forward in your running journey and we are here to help guide you to the next level.

When you joined NEP (Month, Year): October 2018

How you joined NEP:  Recommended by friends 

Why you joined NEP:  To improve my stamina and lose weight 

What does NEP offer differently compared to other running communities? A friendly community that allows for all abilities to improve their running ability and overall fitness with science behind all training methods.

 

How much have you improved: Having not ran at all before joining NEP and going from running 2 days a week with the group to now running up to 60 miles a week. Also, I have managed to bring my 5K pb down by nearly 10 minutes with the help of team NEP. It was around 28 minutes when I joined and is now 18:49 as of two weeks ago which was also achieved in an NEP event.

Finally, why others should join NEP:  

I would encourage anyone looking to improve their overall fitness level or running ability to join NEP. The coaches are extremely supportive and knowledgeable about the sport with plenty of experience themselves and a genuine passion for running. Additionally, the athletes involved in NEP are a very supportive and fun group to train with who respect everyone’s running ability and only encourage those who join.
