Most runners know (or want to know) how far they have run and how fast they have run. But do you know how to run? This is not a trick question. Understanding how to run, that is, the technique of running, as well as having a kinesthetic awareness (being aware of your body in motion) is equally important, to knowing how far and how fast you run.
The Running Form Analysis Includes:
1) Consultation before the test to discuss your running and fitness history and your goals
2) Full-body running form analysis at an outdoor track or park, or on a treadmill that is supplied by you
3) Runditioning™ exercises to strengthen and correct weak areas
4) Video of form
5) Results and recommendations report sent one week after the session
6) All of the above is conducted by Coach Mindy
Note: Total time for the session is about 90 minutes.
