Book an Online Movement Workshop

An online video analysis workshop gives you a clear picture of your running gait outside in the natural environment.

Seeing how you move and understanding the thought process behind it is an incredibly powerful way of learning.

Your movement is heavily influenced by your perception of your movement.

The online video analysis workshops are very simple to create – see how HERE

You may feel that you have no perception and that you just run.  We all have a perception, even if it’s subliminal and it’s generally one that’s based on the traditional view of biomechanics. I believe we are far more elastic, synergistic, fluid and connected that could ever imagine.  Alongside video and data analysis, remote coaching focuses on changing this perception.

When it comes to running at different speeds and on different terrains, every runner has a sweet spot of efficiency and performance that is unique to them.  Running dynamics such as stride length, vertical oscillation, ground contact time and cadence can help you to crack that code.  The headline figures from these dynamics should be used with your running intelligence and not generic software that does not appreciate what you are aiming to achieve.  The remote coaching workshops work with you to crack this code allowing you to research and coach your own progression.

Coaching Philosophy

My coaching philosophy leads me to take a anthropological view of a runner. If we move like a human is designed to move that will make us a good athlete. To maximise our potential we must take that human movement and turn it into human performance.

My coaching is designed to create an intelligent runner that has the correct perception of their movement. It encourages them to see changes in gait as a software change rather than teaching the physical body new tricks.

My belief is that if you treat running as a movement skill you start a journey that will challenge both the mind and body which will maximise your chances of reaching your potential.

 

Human Movement

As humans evolved we gave up a muscular approach to movement and went for a more efficient approach involving the ingenious foot that we have today and standing tall to create an elastic approach to propulsion. Present day human would lose an arm wrestle with a chimpanzee but definitely be victorious in a park run! It’s fascinating that todays human insists on attempting to use muscle to move dynamically instead of the evolutionary gift of elasticity. This has been the focus for my coaching and research with athletes, tribes and indigenous people across 6 continents. If we move the way we evolved, our fascial system will create strength, elastic recoil and the correct sea of tension to support our skeleton.

To maximise our potential we must take human movement and turn it into human performance.

Unique Technology

My organic approach to coaching and natural movement is supported by the latest technology, which provides us with a clear picture of your movement. This enables me to measure progress and set coaching and performance goals. I’m the first running technique coach in the UK to use the ViMove technology.  I use it because it allows me to coach and analyse natural movement in a natural environment. Producing reports on your running dynamics will help you work with your sports therapist on injuries and rehabilitation.
