Training groups



Athletics knows many disciplines. At Vitalis, they can all be practiced, except for race walking. To make this possible, there are four different training groups:

**BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS, REGISTRATION FOR TRAINING SESSIONS IS OBLIGATED. HOW TO REGISTER IS EXPLAINED PER TRAINING GROUP. IF YOU ARE NOT ENROLLED IN THE RIGHT WHATSAPPGROUP YET OR DO NOT RECEIVE THE GOOGLE FORM, PLEASE CONTACT ANOUK (sport@vitalis.org)**

Road group (Registration in advance not needed yet, please register at the trainer at the begin of the training session)
Led by Bart Slijper and Jascha Norder
The road group mostly runs on the road or in the park for distances longer than 5 kilometers. The group is less performance-oriented than the other training groups and there is a lot of difference in level, which is always taken into account by the trainers. Before a training, we always gather at the beginning of the grandstand nearby the running track.

Training times
Tuesday 18:45
Thursday 18:45
Sunday 14:00 - 16:00 at the track

Technical running training (Registration via weekly Google Form)
Led by Dirk Dijkstra
Do you want to run large distances, but do you also want to focus more on your running technique and improve this technique. Then come to the technical running training especially for MLA and road group athletes. The training approaches running from the coordinative side. This means that the training is in circuit form in which several exercises are done to specifically train the large muscle groups, combined with running in between to recover. The weight of the exercises can be adjusted for each athlete. The perfect combination between technique and running for all MLA and running group away athletes of any level.

Training times
Monday 18:45 - 20:15
MLD group - Dirk (Registration via weekly Google Form)
Led by Dirk Dijkstra
The middel-long distance group (MLD) is intended for runners focused on 800m to 5000m on the track and longer distances on the road. The training session on Monday is focused on running technique (see above), and on Tuesday and Thursday there are track training sessions. Saturday morning is often an endurance run on the road or in the park. The training session on Saturday is also suitable for Vitalis members from other groups.
