Running Form Analysis: What Does it Matter?
As a runner or triathlete, you spend hours logging in miles and training to be your absolute best. No matter what your current training level may be, if you do it with poor or inefficient form it will reinforce bad habits and this can limit your potential. Do you know if you’re working as efficiently as you can be?
Your running form can optimize your training time and help you to get more out of your workouts. We can improve your running form and consequently, your time and endurance. This means you can effectively, safely, and professionally take your training to the next level.
You do not have to be an elite athlete to take advantage of this. No matter what your current level is, everyone can improve their running with our Running Form Analysis.
Here’s How It Works:
First, we capture video footage of you running at various speeds. After a short warm up, we have you run at a variety of paces as we record your process. Our goal here is to see what you look like as you run so we do ask you to be comfortable and try not to self-correct.
Second, we review footage of efficient running and identify common traits of efficient runners. We then transition into your video footage and together we will identify areas of strength and weakness in your own running form.
Third, we head back out on the road for some specialized and professional correction. We work on the areas that need attention and you practice running while implementing the new changes. This helps us ensure that you’re changing your form effectively and safely. We also introduce key running drills and forms for you to utilize in your workouts.
Finally, we capture additional footage and then we will once again look at the before and after video to see how you’ve improved and what you can do to move further ahead.
