Running Lab

Have you wanted to be a better runner? Or just begin running? Have you wished that you’d love running?

You don’t have to just “want” or “dream” – Now you can BE a better runner with our Running Lab Program.

Research has shown that beginning runners who have a relatively pleasant first experience are much more likely to still be running 6 months later, rather than beginners who are miserable in their first workout. So it’s important to do whatever it takes to make running as enjoyable as you can make it when you’re just starting out.

Enjoy Running

Get to know your strengths and weaknesses, so you can maximize your results and enjoyment of running with fewer injuries.

Stride Efficiently

Discover your ideal stride length determined by your functional flexibility and strength to support a steady, powerful pelvis and hips, which increases your running distance in fewer steps.

Be Faster

Create a schedule of training and recovery that enhances efficiency for your whole body, so that your movement becomes most efficient and economical.

Protect Your Feet
