what you'll walk away with

The focus of these Wednesday Run Sessions is to get you running easier and faster. An introduction to our Run Technique workshop, I will give you tips to focus on as you do your speed effort workout.


We all know we try harder and run faster in a group, so all levels are welcome as we adjust distance, repetitions and time to suit where you're at with your running.


Discover your next gear - I've heard so many people laugh when I talk about running faster efforts to improve their overall speed as they believe they only have ONE pace (aka plodding). If you give me your last event time, I can give you the corresponding speeds you should be able to run, 1km, 5km, 10km and even longer.

These session are for you if:

  • if you believe you only have one pace

  • if you want to beat a 2-hour half marathon time

  • you used to be fast and like me have had to put your running on hold due to having kids and now want to regain some of that pace

  • if you want that extra push and know you train harder with others. 

No matter whether your goal is to run 5km or a half marathon, our combination of technique drills, mobility and speed work will help you become a fitter, faster, stronger runner without interference from injury.

hi, i'm anna

I struggled for years to get the running results I was after and knew there must be a better way to run train. After 6 years of experience and research as a certified personal trainer & run coach, I've found the perfect balance.

Fitness is Fun is a bootcamp style programme based in Hamilton tailored to suit those interested in run training. It combines strength and speed training with stretching and mobility to prevent injury.  It's a fun and social way of training that helps people to become fitter, faster, stronger runners.

"When my knee was killing me in the last 10km of running, I started using your running style and instantly my knee pain disappeared. I could NOT believe it! Where had this been all my running life?! I used to have the worst hamstring cramps and knee pain. You are a lifesaver! Not just to practise it so that it becomes natural."

“I love the atmosphere and I know I get more from group training than I would going to the gym by myself. I put in more effort and although there are a few people, the trainers all understand our capabilities and if we try to be slack, they push us to run further or lift heavier weights. I love the variety, sometimes we run, sometimes we do weights, sometimes we do both. I love being outdoors and we train rain, hail or shine."
