Book a Movement Workshop
The combination of 360 degree video analysis of the whole body and data collected on your running dynamics from my ViMove system, creates a very powerful learning environment; one in which you interact throughout the process, enabling you to understand how it looks and feels to move your body correctly.
All coaching takes place in the natural environment, away from the treadmill. Research shows us that running on a treadmill creates significantly contrasting bio mechanics from those produced running in a natural environment.
Coaching outside ensures that the correct techniques are coached; we run outside so we should learn and practice outside.
My coaching is designed to produce intelligent runners, enabling them to take the knowledge gained from their coaching sessions and develop their technique as they practice. This is achieved by coaching visualisation and a thought process as well as technical information; we move in the way we perceive we move. If we feel our movement is mechanical then that’s the way we will move. If we understand that we are very fluid, connected and synergistic in our movement, then we will move accordingly. This creates efficiency and significantly reduces the chances of injury.
All Movement Workshops are facilitated by myself, which means places are limited. For more information or to register your interest contact me.
My Coaching philosophy is based on producing intelligent runners who, not only learn a running technique that is natural and safer, but also educates them on how and why we use the techniques. Thus enabling the runner to make educated decisions about their technique as they run, using a self-diagnosis method that covers the whole body. This approach ensures you maximise your efficiency, dramatically reduce chances of injury, allowing you to train better and enhance your enjoyment of running.
I am passionate in my belief that running is totally natural to our bodies. My coaching and gait analysis research in Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and the Sahara with the University of Kent and James Earls of Anatomy Trains, is based on this. My coaching pays particular attention to posture and the fascial system which is responsible for our propreoception and the creation of elastic recoil and elastic energy in the body. I use the fascial system to create a thought process when running that maximises the synergy and fluidity in our body.
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.
