combining strength and coordination for maximum transfer to your running performance.


Hi, I’m Kara Landells,

Strength & Conditioning & Triathlon coach.

One of my biggest passions is helping people improve the way they move, feel and perform, to enhance their running experience.

The missing piece of the puzzle for traditional evidence based Strength & Conditioning programs has been the direct transfer of absolute strength to running biomechanics and neuromuscular efficiency in real world running.

I help to overcome this by building stronger athletes through a coordination, movement and biomechanics approach.

This is achieved through the latest scientific methods of
strength and conditioning for endurance athletes.

I have developed a number of coaching packages to meet the needs of different types of athletes which can be seen below.

I look forward to working with you! 🙂

see my different training programs & packages below



4 week strength & conditioning program for runners
  • Develop neuromuscular efficiency to improve the
    body’s ability to absorb and transmit forces when your foot hits the ground.
  • Enhance the elastic properties of your muscles in order to create greater force output with each stride
  • Learn how to develop pre-tension within the body
    and reduce muscle ‘slack’ in order to better synchronise your running gait cycle
  • This is key to understanding the foundations of running
    and moving well. This will not only reduce a runners injury risk but ALSO improve your running performance.
  • We need to access many different movements within every footstep and every run. We focus on giving you access to these key positions and movements in each of the exercises in the program, in order to bring about fluidity, rhythm and efficiency of your running gait cycle.
  • During this program, through a combination of whole body strength and coordination training, you will learn to incorporate the key principles listed above into your training routine & plan.
  • Building the foundations to become a Resilient Runner, thus improving performance and your enjoyment of running.

what's included

  • 4 Week progressive program delivered via the Kara Landells Coaching app, focused on building coordinative strength and movement that will transfer to improved running performance
  • 2 strength workouts of approx 45 minutes
  • 1 Recovery and Mobility workout of approx 20 minutes
  • Video tutorials for all exercises
  • Private facebook group for you to post videos for technique feedback and questions for Kara

this is not your standard running strength program – we develop a comprehensive toolbox of running movement progressions that will enable real transfer to stronger running

All one on one programs commence with a 3 month commitment in order to complete the initial 3 phases of rehab. After the first 3 months, participants can choose to continue month to month or change to a different program suited to their needs. This program is ideal for any runner who is looking to work closely with a coach on an ongoing basis, to maximise the effect of their training to achieve new levels of performance.

I was in quite a bad state when I first contacted Kara for help.

Hammy issues, adductor pain and weakness in parts of my body.

In six months I’m now running pain-free. Kara’s phases have helped targeted those areas which are stronger and firing when running.

Throw in mobility, running mechanics, breathing practices and I’m at a stage where I understand the importance of strength and conditioning and

will continue to maintain for life. Kara, your programs and coaching giving me

the confidence to not only compete ultras again but to run better and stronger.

So thank you.
