RUN with Turia is a running program specifically designed for mothers, and has been reviewed by women’s health physiotherapists, and includes pelvic floor advice.

In an interview with Body+Soul’s Healthy-ish podcast this month, Turia said: ‘I use running as a mood-balancer, I guess, is how I’d describe it.’

The athlete-turned-motivational speaker joked that having children has made her ‘more efficient’ with her exercise time, adding: ‘when I get a 40-minute window, I’m getting out the door.’

On Instagram, she shared: ‘I know that if I get out the door for a run, I’ll come back with more capacity to give to my kids, partner, team and work.’

Turia added that her program is not designed for mothers with children under the age 12-months, and more geared to mothers of toddlers or teenagers. 

‘We start running on Feb 15. Pop your name on the waitlist and I’ll let you know when you can enrol!’ she said, adding there was a link in her bio with more info.
