What Beatrice has to say:I have specifically liked running on a regular basis with Staci and getting to know more about the South African running community, getting to know running routes, getting to know simple techniques for how to run easier for a longer period of time. I would recommend Fitter Faster 5 to 10 because Staci helps you reach your goals in running while having a great time. This was a great running experience for me!!
What Michelle has to say:With Fitter Faster 5 to 10, I manage to get off the couch and onto the road instead of just daydreaming about it, with the support of a caring, knowledgeable and compassionate coach. Knowing that there was someone out there who was expecting me to show up, and who was expecting me to put the work in, meant that I had to commit to sticking to the programme.
What Jacqui has to say:I found that I wasn't as slow as I thought, but could improve on my overhaul fitness. Also that you didn't need to run flat out from the start of a run. A gradual build up would get you over the finish line – quicker and feeling that the run was FUN. Which makes you want to come back for MORE.The expert advice and motivation from Staci is priceless.
What Marian has to say:Commitment and fear for something that I was not sure I could manage to fulfil almost prevented me from joining Fitter Faster 5 to 10. The motivation and encouragement is a wonderful way to keep going! Specifically having a program to follow and an Incentive to do a goal race. It has been really great fun and it’s so good to have a new challenge.
What Andy has to say:As a result of joining Fitter Faster 5 to 10 I have more motivation to run. It has been such a bad year for me but now I am entering races again and am so happy to be on the road again. I loved the tips that seem so insignificant but have made such a difference, 4 minute running and 1 minute walking and counting up the hills specifically.
What Lorien has to say:My time has improved; I have managed to do a 10k and I now understand a whole lot more about how to run and why to run. I'm feeling healthier, stronger, fitter and happier. I have no hesitation in recommending this training program, it has been a motivating and inspiring experience and I have also learned a few tricks of the trade.
What Annette has to say:I started on my running programme with Staci in August - one of the best investments in time and money I have ever made! From the first gentle run with Staci in Rivonia I felt that I was with someone highly professional, organised and also warm and always encouraging but also realistic as to my abilities and potential.
What Ciske has to say:It's helped me get into a stricter routine with my running, because I felt accountable to the programme. I've also learnt about breathing, posture when running, nutrition, the role of stretching etc. - all things I wondered about before but never had the time to seek answers to. The result is that at the end of the program I feel fitter, more confident and motivated to continue - slowly and steadily - because I've seen the result of doing so over 8 weeks.
What Niki has to say:Signed up so no obstacles That starting the “running process” is not as difficult as I thought it was going to be and that I am fitter than I thought I was. The way in which I was guided from day 1 though to a 10km. Questions were answered and tips given, especially regarding downhill running and hills It’s not THAT tough to get going early in the morning. You don’t have to be athletic to run. Women are great women motivators. It’s an easy and comfortable way of easing into an exercise program that is foreign to start with. I thoroughly enjoyed the runs and advice – just sorry that the missed days are not able to be added on at the end.
