See what our fans are saying about the Rejoov Running Group.


Cathy Liu: "I began running with Rejoov in October 2017 as I was keen to try track running after only focussing on road running for the last 4 years. I was feeling quite nervous and intimidated at the thought of track racing but Greta was always such a calming, cheery and encouraging influence. The track training sessions were the perfect preparation both physically and mentally. Greta makes sure the environment is fun, relaxed and encouraging, while still pushing us to work hard and give our best. The other Rejoov runners were a joy to train with as everyone is so supportive of each other. These sessions quickly became the highlight of my training week. Following the track season, I began following training programs prescribed by Greta to work towards new road racing goals. These programs are great as they are tailored to my circumstances, including my goals, injuries (both previous and current), any injury-prone areas and schedule. Greta is a very attentive and personable coach, checks in every week without fail and adjusts the program as needed. She is also always open to discussing any ideas or thoughts I have (no matter how crazy they were!). During my time under Greta's tutelage, I always felt the belief she had in my ability to reach my goals (which was often more than the belief I had in myself) and I was always encouraged and cheered on every time we hit a hurdle. It's no surprise that in the few months that I've been coached by Greta, I got a 5k PB (18.15) and, ultimately, a 38 second 10k PB (37.39) despite a preparation that was hampered by a hip injury. In short, I can't thank Greta and Rejoov enough for the new running experiences I've gained, all that I've learnt and all the friends I've made in the last 8 months".

Running and the friendships I’ve made through Rejoov make me happy. I am thrilled with a 38.05 Sydney 10k pb & a 55.28 C2S pb.

"Greta, can't thank you and the Rejoov family enough for helping me smash my half PB by 2mins40secs in the Gold Coast Half Marathon!! All your fantastic coaching, advice and awesome and never ending support, has been such a help over the last few months training. It's great to be part of such a fab running group that continually inspire each other. Now to get back in training for the Melbourne marathon and let's hope another PB!"                                               - Lisa Kent Sherman 2017

We have found Rejoov fun and very family friendly. The group caters for all levels of fitness and all age groups (Sam is 8 and Callum 6). We love that we can get exercise with our kids; we have had some amazing mornings where our whole family has joined in on a training session. Rachel, Carl, Sam and Callum

I have been running with Greta and Chris for the past [2 yrs+]. Before that time I was an occasional runner who “jogged” a bit to help with my general fitness but never really enjoyed the running experience.
I first met Greta and Chris through my husband Warren who had trained and ran with them for several years. Warren had encouraged me to join their group for a few good reasons:
• Firstly because the group training situation would add a new level of interest in running through the encouragement of the other runners in the group.
• Following a set training program would allow for not only improved fitness and running ability but also take away the monotony of just going out on my own for a run.
• It would help me to set goals.
• A well planned running program is the best way to improve physical fitness and help control weight.
• The social aspect of group training would help to make what I had always found difficult something that was enjoyable.
My personal experience with Rejoov has proven all of the above to be true and has led me to achieve something that I would have never thought possible. This achievement is outlined in the story that follows (see Client Achievements). I hope you enjoy reading it.

"I have been running with Rejoov for 2 years now. Greta & Chris have created a fantastic running squad that caters for all runners. It has a fantastic vibe that is all about encouragement no matter what level you are at. The best runners support those slower than them and the slower team members always give a shout out to the fast guys. In 2017 Greta has helped me really knuckle down and improve my times from 5k to half marathon. I have set 7 pbs across these distances taking 1 minute 30 off my 10k PB and 5 full minutes of my half marathon time which is now at 82.15. I could not have done this without the enthusiasm and support of Greta and the Rejoov team. Anyone that wants to run with a relaxed squad that can help achieve your goals and have heaps of fun at the same time should contact Greta. Go Rejoov!"               - Matt Wacher 

Best start to the day.

Rejoov gets me out of bed when it’s dark and cold..I love the positive feeling among the group. Everyone pushes each other to train harder and faster whilst not taking ourselves too seriously.
