Not ready? Kieser specialises in tailored strength training to improve physical performance and reduce pain.

In one month, thousands of runners will embark on the Melbourne Marathon. Whether it’s training to complete your first half or full marathon, or you’re looking to set a new PB on our fast, flat course, we’re here to help you get ready for race day.

At Kieser we offer a strengthening and running program to see you reduce your chance of injury, increase speed and enhance recovery time.

Running puts a major load on the knees, feet and hips; especially when running on hard surfaces. Ankles in particular however require superb strength for any runner; especially when they’ll carry you around Melbourne for 42.2km. Our ankles have to support more than just our body weights; walking alone increases this load by sevenfold. We want to see you with stronger lower legs muscles to increase ankle stability, improved sense of balance and recovery aid in event of an injury. The strength and conditioning programs at Kieser strengthen these muscles, reduce the risk of injury and improve overall running economy.

The 2017 #melbmara will be held on Sunday October 15th. Registrations are now open at http://melbournemarathon.com.au/
