Here’s How to Start Running So You Fall in Love With the Sport Step 1. Starting a new habit is hard, especially when it’s one you might kind of dread. But here’s the trick: Don’t go Step 2. For newbies and seasoned runners alike, it’s crucial to set goals. Giving workouts a.

So you want to start running? Well you have come to the right place, and taken the first step. Now there are many types of people who want to start running and I have been many of those people. At different times maybe, but you’re not alone. I have been the.

Beginning runners, he says, should run for 5 to 10 seconds out of every minute, walking the rest of each minute. Gradually, the walk/run ratio will shift as your muscles strengthen and your joints. It is totally free and you’ll just need to download the podcasts from their site directly on to your your phone and embrace your first run.

There are many apps as an alternative where you can listen to your own music, but I prefer the NHS random music and NHS Laura guiding you through with running tips, like she’s holding my hand. You can reap fitness rewards with just 30 minutes a day, three to five times per week. When you start running, don’t plan to go too far or too fast right away—doing so is the number-one cause of injury among runners. Start by running for. Running is a physical activity, there’s no doubt about that but your mental attitude plays a large part in your success.

When you are doing something that makes you feel uncomfortable, your natural reaction is to stop. When you want to run however, you have to push through that. Your mind needs training as much as your legs do.

Here’s how you do one: Start out jogging, increase your pace until you reach about 95% of your max speed, and then gradually slow to a stop. Rest for 45 seconds to 90 seconds between each stride. Making a commitment, following a plan, and being consistent with your training is a great place to start. Make sure to check with your doctor before you start a running program, especially if you. So you want to start running? Running allows you to see areas you may have missed on your vacations.

Maybe you see someone out running every day in your neighborhood and you think, “I could do that”. Or you see your friends posting about that race they did over the weekend and it.

  • Most people think that being an entrepreneur is a cake walk and you will have a ton of free time traveling to Bali while someone else runs your business as you come and go as you please. This however is not the case. Being an entrepreneur you have to work even harder. Now that I retired early I have found that one of the best things to do is try to do something that creates at $3,000 a month in residual income and live a simple life. Then you will have the freedom to do whatever you want be that mma, bjj, computer programming etc.., Running a business is fun and I think everyone should try to do it at least once (I did), but having the freedom to do what you want when you want is a better option in my opinion.

  • Wow. Very commendable video. The fact that you were able to teach us how to do it and run the whole way through is admirable. Kudos to you sir.

  • Minute 2:34 his dog is taking a big ol shit I’m the gop right hand corner of the screen. lol he just kept running without picking up his dogs shit ���� good video and advice though!

  • Oh, Brian, I wish you could hear the passion in my voice right now. Your words are INCREDIBLY inspirational to me dude. Although I don’t really have the ambition to open up my own gym, this video inspired me pursue other things related to my profession. GOD, you’re just so REMARKABLE! If I’m ever in the Northeastern U.S, I will stop by your gym, just so I can get a handshake from you. It would be such an honor. Thanks, man!

  • Great video, Brian! I love how you market your gym! When you collab with Alan could you talk about how raised the capital to start? Thanks man!

  • hey Brian, I already own a gym but its a traditional fitness style one (treadmills and machines, one squat rack, 3 bench presses, some dumbells kind); I’ve been training that way(bodybuilding style) for a loong ass time, became really disfunctional; found Alan Thralls chanel, then yours and so on, started training this way, the results are there for sure, cant thank you guys enough for what you do; my question is how can I get my gym more into a real ass gym without losing to many clients?; cauze most people don’t come to the gym to accually train, they come do some treadmill walking, do some machines and theyr out, they like it easy; so whats your advice man, cause I gotta pay the rent too, brother; and I already dont make enough money the way it is; thanks for the video! this is from Romania by the way, go figure:)

  • Hey Brian thank you for the awesome videos. How long does one of your classes take and do you charge a monthly membership or charge for x amount of classes?thanks again and keep up the good work!

  • DUDE!!!! I was running yesterday and i tought i was gonna die after running about 1.5 km…. today i watched this video and got pumped up and went running, i ran 3 km no problem, didnt get tired much, exept, my ancle hurts a little bit and my legs are killing me… Im lazy and i never go outside… best tutorial ever lol

  • Thanks for sharing. I love Alans approach and I just discovered your channel and really like yours. I train at great Strongman facility here in Indy but I am left to my own demise. Might apply some of this logic in my training.

  • Strong and positive spirit.
    I would absolutely love to workout in a place like yours, with this team spirit you talk about. Here in France there ain’t much gyms where you can train for strength seriously. It’s a shame ahah! (because trying to replicate yoke walks with heavy loaded barbells feels kinda risky)

  • Ever thought of having “open hours” during slow times or on slow days? I used to go to a gym very similar to yours that had classes in the early morning and evening with open hours during the day for folks who couldn’t make it to classes but still wanted to squeeze in a workout.

  • The track will always haunt me and remind me of those times I almost died and my coach didn’t let me walk because I would have to start over ��

  • Any chance you wanna relocate to Kentucky? The only time I’ve seen an atmosphere like you’re talking about is when I was heavily involved in martial arts. Feeding off others’ energy and positivity makes for unbelievable training sessions. I’m glad you went this route with the video. It’ll set up the following vids nicely.

  • My trick for breathing while running is this: breathing in in one gulp not rushed, but when breathing out I breath out in 3 parts on every step I take and this gives me a nice rythm and I red somewhere that exhailing on making the steps when your body tenses up is preventing cramps

  • MAN I would like nothing more than to come work out at your gym, puke in the grass, and build that comradery with a team of like-minded lifters. Unfortunately I live in Utah. Love the content though!

  • it’s amazing how nowadays, we can all benefit from expriences and knowledge from people like you. I follow a few different channels regularly, but most of my lifting knowledge derives from your deadlift, ohp, squat and bench videos, as well as one other source alike. where I’m from strongman isn’t part of the market yet, though I can’t wait to get my hands on at least a 100 lb one, so I keep catching up on your content to be some steps ahead

  • Man, I wasn’t a fan of the idea of classes instead of open gym until I heard your explanation. That actually sounds pretty great, I’d love to have that kind of “team” support going on.

  • You are one the most motivating speakers I’ve ever heard. Your linear program is working wonders for me! Thank you for all of your videos and hard work….

  • I run a gym in a small town and take the opposite approach. I set up an office at the back of the gym and work on other businesses during the day and run the gym in a very passive way. I think it can be a great investment and also find it very rewarding. Not to mention you can buy the equipment and set the rules so you can lift the way you want.

  • I don’t get light headed or dizzy, to me it just feels like my throat collapses and I can’t actually suck in the air, then my mouth gets super dry and I feel super dehydrated.

  • Awesome video. Super positive. I try to keep the same vibe going with people i workout with. Quick question. Do you have music in the back while you train or is it all just “YOU CAN DO IT!!!!” or “JUST ONE MORE!!!!”

  • man, your gym sounds like heaven! you’ve got the hardcore lifting mentality mixed with a good team and social spirit. when can i come?

  • It reallly help that he was running and showing off how the breaths must be executed at the same time. Great video, thanks for the tips

  • I don’t even want to own a gym but I’ll probably watch whatever you put on frankly. But you’re a sleepless hulk… I’d be a zombie:)

  • I play football and jog daily to keep fit. But as soon as the match starts and I run for within a minute I’m out of breathe… I’m sure somethings not right here

  • I agree with this, you recruit with character. I’m still looking for my ideal client base as a trainer and for me it’s a mental thing. People that are open minded, and willing to work.

  • Brian, seriously, one of the best videos on this subject. Fantastic man. Thank you for being so candid. Wishing you well with your recovery too.

  • Omg that was too funny! The dog stopped for a poo, and then just as it was running up behind him there was the sound of a jet! Almost like a sound effect for the dog ��

  • I agree with you 100%
    I started my own MMA gym alone 3 yrs ago. Now i have my own team, we achieved alot together.
    As you said, some exp. Fighters and my former team mates came to me and started you should do this you should do that, and when they started to train with my team they just left after few days or weeks, they couldnt sacrifice starting with a new team…etc.

    Hope your gym is doing ok, and all the best for you & your family.

  • Powerful video Brian! just starting up a facility myself..looking to open the doors on Jan 30 2017.. love the comment on attracting the right people to the gym and keeping your OWN goals and aspirations for how you want the facility to be in the future as your key driving focus, not worrying about what other gyms in the area are doing… In saying that, being a new sub to your channel… I’m getting the strongman bug (moving from a bodybuilding background) so much so that I have just purchased a whole bunch of strongman equipment for the facility:) you have been a big inspiration for this mate, just want to say thank you and your most recent video about taking action has resonated with me… don’t be surprised if you get an email from me shortly for online coaching and some possible business tips hahah.. keep doing what your doing man!

  • I would definitely love to train at your gym you made it sound so supportive. I train by myself and I never even thought of going to one of these types of gyms, but it would be super cool to meet like-minded people and form new friendships

  • I have the sort of the same vision.. when I first got into working out I used to go to my local YMCA and I had friends there that I’d meet up with twice (which turned into like five days) a week for an abs/core class. It turned into basically what you mentioned here.. a team effort and if you went MIA trust me, people noticed. I hope my vision comes true, I love to teach people and I’m very patient.. I had some minor success in the Navy training my friends on crew with me and I knew I could probably do it in the civilian world too. I could make a trip to Maryland to train at Neversate, I’d be so down for that! Thanks for the videos, Brian, you’re doing great things here.

  • Couldn’t be more accurate brother! I can relate to all of these pointers. Especially about all the sheep who say they will join and never do, or will join under certain conditions (treadmills etc..) I can’t wait to train at your spot and see what it’s all about! Thank you.

  • You said you do it because you love it (thats awesome), im guessing you dont make much of your income off of this, where does it come from if I may ask?

    Also man do like 3 parts or something this was AWESOME!

  • Its not a question of whether your gym will be successful. Its quite obvious that it will. People follow strong, passionate leaders and you are a great example of that. Seriously man… I dont want to come across weird of whatever but Im about ready to pack my backs to get into your gym hahaha

  • How does he run with his dog…my labradoodle first of all has no coordination or sense of direction����‍♀️then I think he’s bow legged so he runs funny…its hard to run and laugh at the same time. Third he just books it down the street no sense of control and me running after him holding the leash trying not to fall and buss my face because of how strong he is, because he has no control and goes at full speed he gets tired quick and trys to just lay down wherever. I’ve had to drag his lazy butt out of the street because apparently thats a good resting spot. I almost trust him enough to run beside me w/o a leash but he has a thing for red cars and orange flowers…if he sees them it’s no stopping him. So yeah long story short I gave up on running with him…he acts like a 4 year old whenever I try to do something productive��

  • would love to join a gym like this. got a bench, squat rack in my conservatory and some tires etc in my garden. I always work out alone. Maybe I should try to be more social

  • You have no idea how much I wish you were based in San Diego. Your gym sounds exactly like the kind of place I would love to be. The mentality of your gym reminds me a lot of a martial arts gym.

  • Do you have like one time visitor’s? Just curious if I could go on a little road trip to lift / talk with people that enjoy strongman.

  • just idea but maybe a video series of following one of your new guys. short videos but show his progress not a new person but new to strongman maybe. you’ll get views of people who interested in starting strongman but also just a fan of urs

  • What i see in my gym (it s cheap, and right under the office and open 24/7, so i can t complain much). 99% of the members are not athletes, and go there to do always the same 3×8 of everything. Zero etiquette (reading novels and texting on the bench press), sociopaths (always on headphones, can t disturb them, can t give or ask any help), never re rack plates or dumbells. BUT, I would take all of that in a heartbeat and love it if there could only be a bit of team spirit. A bit of peer pressure, camraderie, and all of that. Your gym sounds awesome, wishing you YEARS of roaring success there!

  • To hear you talk so passionately about your members and your job gives me shivers it’s so easy to spot that you really are committed to changing people. The world needs more people like you!

  • Am I missing something here?
    While I got a great deal out of your video, I noticed is that you were near always out of breath; incongruous, to say the least…
    Was this because you were talking while running? Or was it because you were carrying the camera as you were running?
    I think a good idea would be for you to teach coach Nora how to hold the camera – problem solved!

  • I’ve ran on and off for years and started back again this year (before lockdown). Being asthmatic, slightly overweight and unfit has been hard to get going.. but most of all my breathing i end up gasping but over the past two days i’ve been trying the in nose and out through the mouth and it is difficult but I feel it relaxes me so much more and when I find it lapsing I switch down my pace and correct the breathing and try and relax again… thank you so much love the videos!! (Scotland Runner!)

  • Holyshit. His dog running and the car sound passing by in sync made me think like his dog straight up fostered the energy from Norse Gods.

  • Amazing video Brian. I hope I’ll be able to open my gym in the next five years! I have so much road ahead of me, but I’m not scared:)

  • Ever thought about reaching out to local high schools? Many high schools have weight training and fitness courses that could probably easily incorporate a little bit of strongman into their curriculum. What’s more is it would expose many young people who are interested in athletics to a sport that they likely have never tried. Some of those people may decide they love it and start coming to your classes regularly. Also, since school runs during the day you could have the schools come in during times that no one else would be in the gym.

  • Very inspiring, brother. Honestly, I’ve been doing mental jiujitsu for a few years about starting a business. What/when was the moment you decided to go for it?

  • Great breathing tips to help me with one of the big issues I am having with running. One out of topic question, please: what microphone are you using? It is excellent and I can clearly hear your breathing examples. I want one for my vlogs.

  • Brian this is brilliant mate. I’ve wanted to make training team based for a long time and I love your ideas. Your content is so helpful man, thanks a lot! We don’t have this sort of team based training in the UK. Not even in our sports teams in secondary school/university. Only in elite level sport. I think it will do really well here. I wish you every success. Happy new year man!

  • Damnnn I feel the passion in every word on your video! More power to you Brian. I subscribed immediately after watching your first video last week. I could tell you were sincere and knowledgeable.

  • Just wanted to say thanks. I am working my way to owning my own gym and this group class training is how I want to run my gym. Myself and my gym bro are working the kinks out of your free program. It’s definitely a transition from our normal tempo. can’t wait to see gains! Thanks again for what you do

  • hehehe odds own gym are better then a restaurant lol restaurants normally with a year or two. gr8 vid on running ur own business�� p.s. ball and chain was priceless lmfao

  • Am I the only one who noticed Brians forearms are the size his biceps/triceps… almost the real life popeye! Also great video man, I was wondering..as a trainer who doesn’t have a title in strongman or other strength sports how would you build clientele with out these accomplishments?

  • If I lived in your area I would definitely be going to your gym. It sounds like you have a great group of people that you have helped develop into better/strong versions of themselves. I really enjoy the fact that your a genuine and honest person that doesn’t sugar coat the bad. I really appreciate that! Keep up the great work and the good lord with bless you in the long run.
