Performance Community

Take the guesswork out of your training with membership to the Running with Jake Performance Community. Monthly training plans & coaching tailored to you and YOUR body.

As runners we are always looking for ways to improve. We want to run faster, run further, find it easier, or be injured less! But so often we find ourselves confused with the overwhelming amount of running advice available, and unsure which is the best approach to take.

That’s where the Running with Jake Performance Community comes in. We take the guesswork out of your training and bridge the gap between being underprepared and overtrained (or injured!).

What’s included?

Is the performance community for me?

If you have a running goal, then the Performance Community can help you reach that goal. Our training plans are tailored to you and and our coaching methods guide you through them. Our weekly check-ins hold you accountable and help you to stay consistent with your running.

The Performance Community is for EVERYONE. We have members of all abilities – from seasoned marathon runners who are chasing a personal best, to people who are putting on a pair of running shoes for the very first time.

Training tailored to YOU and YOUR BODY, regardless of it's size, shape or ability.

Very often runners are stuck in a single gear, running at the same intensity for the majority of their sessions. Our coaching is designed to break you out of that by focusing training around your personal training zones - heart rate, pace, or RPE (rate of perceived exertion).
Zone 1 Used for warming up and cooling down, and to help you recover from more intense sessions
Zone 2 Improves endurance and teaches the body to utilise fat as a fuel source
Zone 3 Builds aerobic endurance and efficiency
, and improves marathon pace
Zone 4 Often referred to as lactate threshold, which improves your ability to run faster for longer
Zone 5 Used for high intensity interval training to develop speed and aerobic power

Get tested by the professionals

You have the option to bolt-on a blood lactate assessment at one of the approved RWJ test centres.

This involves a little run on a treadmill while being closely monitored (and kept safe) by a dedicated team of Physiologists and Exercise Scientists, who will periodically take measurements of your performance.

We can then use these test results to accurately determine your heart rate training zones, which will enable us to help you develop your running even further.

Check out the video above for more information on what’s involved in the blood lactate assessment.
