Run more efficiently, with better posture and more relaxed form
IF YOU HAVE 5 RUNNERS AND A DATE WE WILL DO A CLINIC FOR YOU
COST $140- INCLUDES HST
LONDON – Location 78 GREENBRIER CRES
This 5-6 hour clinic will teach you how to run more efficiently and with less effort, with correct posture and alignment, and with more focus. This is for ALL levels of runners from beginner to sub 3 hour marathoners.
The principles of any endurance event are based on energy efficiency and injury prevention. By aligning your body in a forward direction, engaging a strong core, leaning and then relaxing, it is amazing how easy running can be.
We spend hours repeating drills in the pool or practicing a golf swing yet very few people focus on their running technique. Running is a weight bearing discipline that creates the most wear and tear on the body, so it makes sense that we find the most efficient way to enjoy our runs without pain and discomfort. Muscle weakness and imbalances are the major cause of injuries and unless these chronic issues are addressed, it is likely that running will be a constant struggle. Typical injuries are plantar fascitis, shin splints, piriformis and sciatic pain, tight ITB, knee and knee pain
We have now taught hundreds of runners to become more aware of proper posture and technique.
These fundamentals are understood and accepted as being universal for any distance and speed of running as well as any sport, age group and gender
posture, head to toe
running efficiently and relaxed
I just can’t thank you & Janice enough for the course yesterday. On the way to work today it started pouring so I ducked under an overhang at Westmount Mall. I noticed there was an area in between the doors with a short carpet. I used the time to run back & forth & practice what I had learned. The reflection in the doors shocked me. For the first time in my running career I really looked like a runner! I had my head up my arms next to my side & it was fun!! I know this is only a start. I will be working on my upper body strength, posture & the left foot issue for a long time. But all I can say is “What a difference a day makes”
Thanks again, Mary

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the clinic on Saturday! I considered myself knowledgeable in bio-mechanics but I had never really applied it to myself. My wife has a below the knee amputation and I have sat through endless sessions watching her walk. I have NO clue why I never thought about how I walk. I am truly excited about applying the running skills (basics) you showed us. I have been such an upright runner for so long, I just always assumed I was slow, but it is clear I can be MUCH faster with just a simple movement change.Looking at myself yesterday, I realize that I am a bio-mechanical mess and I need a lot of work. Your discussion explained literally everything that I have experiencing over the past several years and especially in this past 6 months with the injuries and pain. I have just been telling myself that because I am big and fat that there is going to be lots of pain until I get the weight off. Clearly getting the weight off will help but if I am a walking injury that clearly is not a good thing. I have a new appreciation for how good of a plan my nutritionist put together for me, she gave me basically all the same stretches you talked about for a mobility workout but clearly I have not been doing the plan justice.
