This is a fantastic app that we recommend to our patients when returning to running following a break due to injury.

It’s an 8-week course, providing a guided, interval-style (walk/run) training program to gradually ramp up your running load to 5K.

Combined with one of our strength programs, ‘Couch to 5K Runner’, is an excellent tool that can be used to stimulate recovery, and avoid re-injury.





Headspace is one of our favourite apps for guided meditations.

Meditation is a wonderful tool to aid daily anxiety and stress, sleep, focus, and overall well-being.

It is useful for all – from beginners, to experienced and they are very realistic exercises to slot into a busy schedule.





Another highly recommended meditation app. Calm has the largest range of sleep sounds to listen to, and huge array of celebrity sleep stories – an extremely relaxing experience to help you nod off into a dream state.
