“I have always struggled with running since I was diagnosed with arthritis at the age of 17.
However I try to keep myself fit, through gym and cycling. After having a couple of sessions aqua jogging with Kiri I have found get benefits to both my fitness and my joint pain.
Kiri was an awesome teacher and has given me the confidence to continue with my new found passion independently. Aqua jogging has helped me strengthen my muscles, improve my joint range of movement, increase my fitness, and reduce the swelling on my knees.
I can not recommend Kiri enough for anyone with joint pain, or if you are returning from injury, you will not regret having some sessions with her.”
“I loved the classes! Found them so beneficial and Kiri was an excellent task master, great instructions and encouragement. I would differently do another camp, especially during the day which works best for me.”
“Following back surgery (that is still unresolved and will require fusion in the future) I have persevered with my desire to run by taking up triathlon as each discipline enables me to do the next and also strengthens my back. With the help of Hope Mead (Hobsonville Physiotherapy) and Kelly Sheerin (AUT Millennium) biomechanics & run clinic assessments, I was able to continue training throughout 2014 and 2015, but realised the continual land running was causing more problems as my body went from compensating to adaptation over and over again. I was then referred to Kiri Price to compliment my land runs with deep water running to reduce the impact on my body. Kiri’s sessions provided the equivalent run workouts both interval and endurance training sessions that has allowed me to complete my first quarter ironman and restart longer land run sessions. If like me you are plagued with injuries and enjoy running, I can highly recommend deep water running at AUT Millennium with Coach Kiri Price.”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed every session of Kiri’s Boot camp, she is a wealth of information, motivational and very professional.”
“The bootcamp was brilliant although I did not attend all of them due to other commitments I would certainly do another round. Kiri keeps the sessions interesting and is very helpful and very personable am very impressed.”
I am an amputee who sustained fractures while trying to run on a blade leg. Kiri introduced me to deep water running – I didn’t mention that I was very apprehensive and had pictures of going round and round in circles and tipping sideways. I found her to be VERY patient with my lack of limb/co ordination and confidence and found the experience very beneficial and have continued doing the exercise
At first I was a little nervous about deep water running. I had lower back pains, my knees would ache after my other exercise commitments, but deep water running helped me tremendously.
The positive and friendly group makes getting in the pool a joy, not only am I working out, I am making friends. The continuous change of activities make for challenging sessions, and playful ones.
I recommend deep water running to anybody who wants a little extra help with injury recovery, or somebody who wants an exercise change. 10/10 each and every time!
I became injured during my build up for the Chicago marathon, incredibly frustrated I turned to deep water running in an effort to maintain my fitness and to keep up my training for the 5 weeks prior to the marathon.
Given that this was going to be my main activity in this period I decided that I should take a lesson with Kiri to ensure that I was doing it properly. Over that 5 week period I swapped out all of my long runs for the same amount of time in the pool doing deep water running and applying the techniques and routines that Kiri had taught me.
Having never done this before I wasn’t sure how it would translate on the day – I was both surprised and delighted with the result on race day! I actually managed my best marathon time since 2012!
I have continued to include deep water running as part of my training – reducing the mileage on the road and thereby reducing the risk of injury
I would recommend it to anyone looking to supplement their mileage or maintain fitness while recovering from an injury – it worked for me!
