Running Form Analysis


Have you ever marveled at the effortless grace of a professional runner striding out sub-five-minute miles, as if they were out for an easy jog in the park? Contrast this to the general masses seen pounding out miles struggling to stay in shape.  We are all born with a certain running style and degree of efficiency.However, proper run mechanics can be developed and proper training techniques can be established to make running easier and make you faster.  Through Outdoor Running Analysis, pacing and form inefficiencies can be identified and changes can be made to help improve overall running economy and prevent injury.  Learning how to run smother, faster and stay healthy can be easier than you think. Having an analysis done on you can get the direct in-person feedback you need to improve and perform at your best.

Outdoor Running Analysis

An outdoor running analysis is conducted at a local outdoor 400 meter track by a certified running coach.A pre-determined distance is set and a runner will be timed on that distance – an all-out effort. The distance is usually between 1 – 3 miles in length.The professional coach will analyze your running technique (pacing, efficiency and form over time) to determine appropriate drills and training techniques to help you improve.

How long does it take?

An Outdoor Running Analysis takes about 30 minutes to complete, along with an additional 30-45 minute individual one-on-one session with the coach to review results and go over suggested drills/workouts.

What is included in the analysis?

Feedback is given in the following areas;

·Video result review

·Projected race performance

·Tips on increasing cardiac performance

·Pacing & form technique tips

·Drill explanations and demonstrations

·Suggested workouts

·Core/weight training exercise suggestions
