Running Technique Coaching
Whether you are returning to running after a break, trying to achieve a new PB or dealing with reoccurring injuries, we have the answer. Running is a highly technical sport that needs constant input. You need to ensure that your training and technique is efficient to enable you to maximise your performance without increasing your risk of injury.
We can help turn your technical flaws into strengths that will change the way you view running - forever.
Injury can prevent you from achieving your goals. However, if you know the potential reasons for these injuries before they happen, or maybe you have been struggling with a recurrent injury, then the first step you need to take is to email us and book a free running analysis.
You will be amazed at the simple steps you can take to improve your running, making you more efficient and less likely to pick up an injury.
Free running analysis
This is a 30 minute session which is based around analysing aspects of your technique. The good, the bad and the ugly!
A video will be taken from behind and from the side so that we can show you what we are assessing and explain the reasoning behind it. Subsequently we can use it to compare this to your video after your technique coaching sessions.
Initial technique sessions
The first block of six sessions will significantly reduce your risk of injury. It will focus on teaching you this technique in the most efficient way. We adapt this technique so that it is unique to every person as there are certain aspects of the technique which will need to be tailored to each individual. At the end of this block you will understand what:
- Good technique is,
- Aspect of the technique you find the hardest to maintain when fatigued,
- You need to work on to progress further.
Remember this is a skill that we are teaching you. Like other skills it needs focus and repetition to master it.
The the next block of six sessions will help you perfect your technique and achieve your PB's.
The sessions will become harder and be geared towards maximising training effects. Further analysis will be required to:
- Establish SMART goals,
- Analyse your dynamic strength program,
- Assess your movement patterns,
- And training load.
Your technique will need small adaptations and we will want to work you into a fatigued state to test your ability to maintain technique quality in a more challenging environment.
