We specialize in helping runners stay injury free and reach their personal best!

We can make the mistake of assuming running comes naturally, without thinking too much about it.  Until our bodies break down and we are in pain; that gets our attention!

Running pain-free is a high level skill and a product of a solid physical foundation. 

Running well is part art and part science; a balance of intuition and logic.  Listening to your body becomes a form of meditation and mindfulness skills are developed in the process. 

Our running analysis begins with understanding of you as a person; your running history and your goals and expectations. 

The running assessment uses slow motion video analysis to carefully evaluate your running form.  We use a checklist to identify the most common biomechanical errors. 

Some of the things we look for are:

  • alignment and posture

  • foot landing position

  • cadence

  • vertical efficiency

  • step length

  • pelvic and core control

  • lower limb flexibility

  • single leg stance control

  • overall efficiency

  • core strength

  • functional movement testing

Once we have figured out what is going on with your running, we will give you a written plan - full of advice, education and exercises to help you become an efficient, strong and injury-free runner.  We don't try and dramatically change your running technique, but instead focus on building your foundation and improve efficiency.  If you are new to running, check out our blog for tips on how to go from couch to 10k.
