Gymbia’s running clinic supports the running community of Hackney Wick, Victoria park & surrounding areas.
We work with a wide range of people from those looking to run their first 10k pain free all the way up to ultramarathon runners looking to cross the finish line strong.
We specialise in biomechanical assessment & bespoke program design to create focused & efficient results in short spaces of time in running injury rehabilitation & performance.
The human body is perfectly evolved to run for long distances – we often find that desktop sitting creates postural issues that, combined with a faulty gait technique, can lead to pain & quick tiring while running.
With the right coaching & instruction pain, slow run times & sluggish cardio can be a thing of the past!

We will go through a detailed assessment which will help us understand the factors that may be limiting your performance, any postural issues or injuries or any muscle imbalances that need addressing.
