As a child you ran naturally* and without inhibition.
Rediscover your natural* running form. Learn to run more efficiently, putting less stress on your body and enjoy your running again.
Natural* running form is the process of reproducing an efficient running style that allows a runner to perform to their highest possible standard whilst reducing the risk of injury. Natural* running form concentrates on encouraging a forefoot/midfoot strike, landing with a vertical shank, developing a land/load/lever/lift technique, and running with a more efficient cadence of around 180 steps + per minute.
After a warm-up activity, you are filmed from a number of angles, and at a variety of running speeds. Initial observations are noted, and you are shown some basic natural running form drills to teach awareness.
After further analysis and feedback, additional drills and exercises are taught to improve both your form and function. You will receive a written report with guidance and videos to support your ongoing development. The guidance will ease you through the three stages of improving your running form, focussing on developing the appropriate FUNCTION including mobility and flexibility; followed by instilling good movement patterns associated with running FORM; before embarking on a new regime to support the development of running FITNESS.
£99 (3 hours contact time, 1 hour analysis). Includes written report, guidance on drills and videos taken on the day.
Group workshops at reduced costs can be arranged on request.
*The word natural is used with its current cultural definition. All will be explained at the workshop.
