What's different about Foundation Run?

We are firm believers that the effectiveness of run coaching is hugely enhanced with strength and conditioning and the right nutrition alongside.

Not only will you run stronger, you will also reduce your injury risk.

Where are you based?

The Foundation Clinic and The Athlete Factory is based in Tauranga and Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. 

How does each week work?

You'll have access to an online run planning calendar detailing your planned runs for the upcoming days or weeks, where we'll also monitor your progress.

You can book in your weekly strength session at either the EFX classes at The Foundation Clinic, or AF sessions at The Athlete Factory.
