If you are looking to improve your running technique, run faster, run more efficiently and stay injury free, then a running gait analysis is a great place to start. Our running assessment combines our standard gait analysis with a critical look at your running technique.
Our running assessment is designed to have a look at how efficiently you run. The assessment consists of a full exercise & injury profile, followed by video analysis of your current run technique taken from different angles using Dartfish video analysis software.
What we are looking at in a running assessment
- How your feet strike the ground
- The amount of strides per minute you take (cadence)
- How long your stride is
- What position your body position is in
- How much upper body involvement is occurring
- How effective your footwear is
With the outcomes of the assessment we will be able to get a full profile of your running ability (technical) and then suggest a suitable course of action to progress you.
Natural Running is the way the human body was meant to run in its purest form – namely barefoot – across a solid surface. That means running with efficient mechanics centered around landing lightly on the mid-foot to forefoot (ball of the foot, but not on the toes) and quickly sensing then, lifting your foot off the ground instead of pushing off with excessive muscular force. Practicing good running form can be simple, but it may take time to unlearn old habits and learn proper technique. Ultimately, good running can help make a runner stronger, more efficient and less prone to overuse injuries.
You can use this assessment as a one off, or incorporate it within a course of sessions from our running school that will really help you evolve and project your running to a new level. For more information look at our Running School packages.
