Protons Running team has arrived
The initial branch of parent company, Protons Sports and Fitness Private Ltd, the Protons Running team have brought out their experience and wisdom from learning and living their passion and knowledge. We have created a one stop platform for all your running needs through a partner network creating a holistic platform for premium results.It is our vision to take running to all localities and cities of India. We aim at turning running and fitness into a lifestyle for our members and not just an event-based activity.
How? This begins by making it easy for you to access. We bring the run to you instead of having you to go out and put in effort in traveling and creating a network of runners to run with. At the moment have launched at 5 locations in Bangalore. Over time, we will be adding more localities so that you can find one closer to your home. We also provide our members with the benefit of flexibility to change their locations at anytime as per their convenience by informing us.
The TCS 10K? The trainers are on track for their upcoming event and have been training for it post the Mega-event that was SCMM. This is the most prestigious mid-distance endurance race in the country and it is on home-grounds for us. We are looking forward to having a whole new wave of Personal Bests from the trainers. We also have three contenders for the magical sub-40 digits. As for our members, about 80% have signed up for their first-ever 10K and will be looking at cruising through to the finish line in epic style. This is their first introduction to the world of running and the idea for them is to enjoy the celebration and festivity that is the TCS10K. Just soaking in the feeling of running with around 25,000 participants is something else
About the team? Founded by Dharmendra Kumar, Ankush Sharma and myself, our Core team includes 2 Ambassadors and 10 Trainers. In its first month of operations, the first batch in May 2014 has introduced a total of 50 members across all five locations. We are now open for memberships for the month of June 2014.
Why are Protons so special? What I would like to specify here is that as a Running group, we aim at training right through the year and not only when there is a race looming at the horizon. We advise running as an activity to be part of your lifestyle not just a specific event. We provide very high levels of motivation and filter through the “can do” attitude to each of our members. We believe that there is an athlete in each one of us and as trainers, it is our job to help you uncover this athlete in you. We make running fun! Add to that, we tweak the training programmes closer to the event date to optimise race day performance. Moreover, we create a sense of cameraderie and healthy competition amongst our members. We start our training programme with a Workshop to help members get their fundamentals right. And, as a delight factor, we also provide our members with an environment which makes their membership with us a one-stop shop for all their running needs – physiotherapy, nutrition, apparel – you name it, we got it!
