Aileen, Dublin

A very special running group, great atmosphere, supportive teachers, sociable & fun. Running and training outdoors on the beach all year in all weathers is an amazing experience - 10 stars!” 

Class Descriptions

Beginners

Helping you start running (or return from a long break) in a safe, gradual and motivating way. We build each week with run/walk breaks taking you from 1 minute runs to a 30 minute run by end of term. 

Is it for me? 

If you want to be a runner but never seem to be able to do it alone, this is for you. Or if you are returning after a long break and want to build back sensibly.

Fun Run

Helping you to get out the door, feel stronger and better running. In 1 hour we will combine running (at your pace) with all complementary stuff we know you don’t do at home! Strength, mobility, breathwork and lovely stretching.

Is it for me?

If you can run a minimum of 10-15 minutes VERY slowly you will be fine in this class. You can walk/run as you need to as you build back up your fitness.

Strength & Speed

Helping you to get faster, stronger and avoid injury. In 1 hour we will combine speed intervals (different each week) with strength, technique, mobility and breathwork and some fun of course while on the move.

Is it for me?

If you are running 5k (or longer) comfortable and regularly and want to get stronger and faster this is for you

Run by the ever-positive inspirational legend that is Mary Jennings together with her fabulous motivating coaches - Forget The Gym is a very special group. Over many years I've seen how it just attracts great, really nice people all ready to encourage each other , enjoy the chats & the craic. Years after joining the gang I still love my running and I'm still learning loads.” 

Your Coaches

Mary and Aoife will support and guide you all the way through the term

Mary Jennings Running Coach

Mary Jennings

Mary is the author of the book Get Running published in 2019 by Gill Books. She is a regular columnist with The Irish Times and a frequent voice on radio, television and print. She has plenty practise on the roads herself having completed over 45 marathons and ultramarathons. As well as working with individual and groups, Mary has presented at many wellness events and coaches corporate groups.

Mary founded ForgetTheGym 15 years ago when she left her proper job to follow her passion for moving outdoors. A relative late comer to fitness, Mary understands what it’s like not to feel ‘sporty’ and loves building confidence in new runners and helping people reach their running goals. 

Aoife Slater

Just like Mary, Aoife discovered running as an adult and has seen it transform not only her appearance but also her lifestyle. From being a self-confessed overweight and unfit couch potato, things changed in 2009 when she built up slowly from walking to running 10k and hasn’t looked back. She truly caught the running bug, qualified as a personal trainer in 2011 and has since replaced the 9-5 office job with running shoes.

From parkruns to marathons, Aoife has seen running change her body and her mindset and today coaches our runners who need support, motivation and a gentle nudge in the right direction.

If you want to keep moving this winter but fear you might hibernate instead, we are just what you need. 

 

Our aim is to make your running feel easier, more enjoyable and as a result help keep you moving right through the winter!

 

We show you how to feel great running, building in strength, mobility, breathwork and FUN to make you run better and avoid injury.

 

Most importantly, we want you to feel welcome and relaxed at class. You can run/walk at your own pace and take breaks.

 

There is no focus on competition with others in our classes - you are only in competition with yourself.

 

Imagine how good you would feel by Christmas if you kept moving for the next 7 weeks. 

 

Don't wait til January.
