Strip away the distractions

DO NOT run naked. For a start it is usually illegal and it is not going to be kind to various parts of your body. It would also be a mistake to assume spectators would enjoy the show.

Instead head to Currumbin's Ecovillage this weekend for Chris van Hoof from Chisel Fitness's Naked Running Workshops.

Mr Hoof said the two workshops would share tips on how to run injury-free, further, faster and with less effort.

"Everyone wants to run with ease and efficiency and the great thing is that everyone has the body to do it.

"However, in our busy lives it can often be difficult to find the time and help to focus on developing our natural ability to run."

"Our Naked Running workshops are the perfect opportunity to ditch the distractions of everyday life so that you can not only improve your performance, but maintain motivation as you run toward optimal health."

The workshops will guide participants to discover the keys to enjoying their running experience.

"Workshop one, Stripping it Back, will help you understand the principles of stripping back running to its natural form and the importance this has on your performance," Mr Hoof said.

"During workshop 2, Exploring On Your Feet, you'll create an efficient system by exploring and feeling a new approach to your running performance.

The day will provide the tools and support needed to discover the joy running can offer, Mr Hoof said.

Ecovillage managing director Chris Walton said the community was well associated with exercise and the running and biking movements.

"The Ecovillage has a great relationship with Chris from Chisel Fitness who has made good use of our natural attributes," Mr Walton said.

A free Newton running pack valued at $45 will be offered to those who enrol in both workshops.
