Ilford Athletic Club (IAC)
Welcome to Ilford Athletic Club! Here at IAC, we offer and promote recreational and competitive forms of physical activity. Whether you are looking for somewhere for your kids to take classes, looking for a convenient fitness facility, or simply want to keep up on news surrounding local athletics, then we should have something to offer you.
At IAC, we have seen the profound influences that sport can have on a community, and as such, we feel that this is something we can further facilitate. One of the ways we do this is by welcoming people of all ages, backgrounds, and athletic ability. Whether you are making a lifestyle change for health reasons, or are looking to build upon a current fitness regime, we are happy to help you achieve your goals.
Our competitive teams focus primarily on track sports, particularly middle to long distance running, cross country running, etc. Although it is one of the most difficult sports to commit to, it’s one that has a huge impact on level of fitness, and therefore health status. Furthermore, it’s reasonably affordable, as you don’t need any fancy equipment other than a good pair of running shoes and comfortable workout clothes.
We will also try to focus a lot on news, especially as it relates to amateur athletes or upcoming local events, and sometimes even major high profile athletic events that we are excited about and would like to inform people about.
One thing people often have trouble with is motivating themselves to make a lifestyle change or stick with a particular training regime. Often times the sole reason for this is that they aren’t doing what they enjoy. Therefore, at IAC, we try our best to promote fair play and fun attitudes as we participate in sports. This not only has the benefit of giving someone a better chance to stick with a program, but in our opinion, it also allows for an overall better mood!
