The missing link in modern running programs, injury prevention and performance

Is running really all that difficult? After all, you’re only putting one foot in front of the other, right? Many coaches, therapists and athletes still think this way. 

However, there is certainly much more involved than just putting one foot in front of the other.

In running, the rate of injury is significant. Each year between a quarter and half of runners will sustain an injury that is severe enough to cause a reduction in training or performance.

Why is this so?


The details of how you move and handle your body from one stride to the next is extremely important if you want to reduce your chances of injury, improve performance and continue to enjoy running.  

This course is designed to cover those details, the ones that will prove beneficial to helping you to get the most out of your running for years to come.

Yes, Strength and mobility is important and a key element of what makes good running performance, but in my opinion many runners that I see with chronic injuries have enough strength and mobility already. The problem for them is not being able to express that strength in a well coordinated way throughout their running gait. Therefore it is crucial to develop strength AND coordination at the same time.

This course will cover:

  • Understanding in depth the biomechanics of running and how it relates to injury prevention and improving performance

  • How to identify key principles of what efficient running form looks like

  • Learn the Key running ‘Attractors’ that enable stable joint positions and movement patterns

  • Target the key areas of your running form through a weekly step-by-step program with easy to implement drills and exercises

  • Common errors that many runners make within their stride, and exactly how you can work to correct them.
