Momentum Sports: The Running and Athletics Website
Coronavirus - Update
We're here to help you with your running / athletics, both current and new athletes. Safety is our top priority, we're following all the covid-19 rules, which currently means we are back in lockdown again. Obviously this is deeply frustrating.
We sincerely hope that we'll be back to our track for training from the 2nd December, but in the meantime we can do all our normal online activities (online coaching, offer advice, online consulations with our coaches and sports therapist etc). We can still do 1-2-1 personal training sessions as well with adults (we are awaiting confirmation on whether this is allowed for U18s as a parent / guardian would also need to be present).
Please contact us with any queries you might have and we'll do all we can to assist you.
This site is about everything to do with running and athletics. From free training advice to online coaching from qualified professional coaches set specifically for you. From sprinters to marathon runners, improve your fitness and speed with targeted running sessions, circuits, weights, plyometrics, stretching, nutrition and psychology.

One of many reviews from our athletes throughout the site -
"Momentum Sports' online coaching facility has helped me over many years, even though I am an experienced athlete, as I am now in my fifties and have suffered many injuries in the past. Richard's support and guidance have been vital especially when dealing with niggles or injuries. The objective advice has helped me to target the right intensity in training and ensure that I take enough rest. The ability to message Richard when necessary, in addition to the online training plan, keeps the service personal and it is excellent value for money."
Here is an example video to demonstrate how we can help runners of all abilities. This one looks at some very simple technique for making your running technique better.
