Ubershape Run Squad
What is Run Squad?
Our run squad is the best on the Gold Coast and includes all fitness levels with a session designed for walk/runners through to elite. No matter what your running level, you can’t help but get addicted to the energy of this class.
Run Squad is held at Pizzey Park, Miami, for both FitKIDS & Adults and includes a variety of sessions utilizing the natural environment, parks & paths.
Run Squad aims to teach people the correct technique of running and to ignite a passion for getting outdoors and living a healthy lifestyle. Being in the gym and getting strong is fantastic for your mind and body, but being outdoors is amazing, both physically and emotionally.
It also encourages people to get outdoors and into community events. Community events like the Gold Coast Marathon are so much fun, and the bonus is that the whole family can get involved together.
There is so much to learn from running, aside from just becoming cardiovascular fit. You will learn how to believe in yourself, to make goals, to quieten your mind (when it tells you that you can’t keep going) and it is a great stress reliever after a long day.
We include all levels of runner; you start at your own level.
Ofter people are worried that they will hold up the group. That doesn't happen because we have designed all sessions to start and stop to suit all levels. e.g. faster people might run an 800m loop while slower runners may run a 400 m loop.
We have three levels for each class and is open to both adults and FitKIDS.

Each session starts with a roll-up of active stretches to prepare and warm up the body to run. Active, also known as Dynamic Stretches work to prep the muscles we are going to be using. It not only increases blood flow but also a range of motion throughout the body. Hip flexors and Hamstring flexibility is the main area of focus to prevent running injuries.
If you aren’t a runner, you would be surprised by how much technique there is. When proper technique is implement, running not only will feel better but distance can be increased and it will reduce injury.
Interval running is an important part of increasing fitness and ability to successfully run a long distance. It involves running a short and intense effort, followed with an equal or slightly longer recovery time.
Done in a group setting this style of running is very enjoyable.
Running for a new distance is a passion for Coach Jodie and her clients, no matter the distance. If you have a goal make sure you tell Jodie so she can set up the session to make sure you are meeting the needs of your goals. Running for distance requires many different aspects of training.
