Running on treadmills is an acquired taste so when I was invited to try out the Precision Run treadmill class at Equinox, I was apprehensive.
You’ve probably already heard of Equinox. Really nice chain of gyms with locations in various cities around the world. I actually spent a few weeks training over at the Kensington branch a few years ago and it’s played a big part in my love of fitness classes.
I tried the Precision Run class out when it was in its infancy about 6 years ago. I don’t remember much about it (and I’d just done the Madrid Marathon two days before), so I was quite interested to give it a go.
What is Precision Run?
Now the Precision Run group class is a big deal, not only can you find it in all of the Equinox gyms but they also have a standalone studio over in New York – pretty annoyed I didn’t get a go when I was doing the marathon last year.
There are now a vast range of different running workouts based on your training goals. Each workout uses the treadmill to deliver a scientific and motivating way to use treadmills. Which, for someone like me, is worth testing out.
Myself and Mike were invited down to try out the class in our training for the London Landmarks Half coming up in March. Here’s the video overview of the session.
