Why is Training Important for Running?

Proper mechanics are essential for running smoothly without pain. Running efficiently can lead to faster times, injury-free training, and improved running performance. As mileage creeps up, parts of the body become too tight while others become too weak. Don’t let these inefficiencies lead to injury or poor performance. Several programs offered are designed to help discover limitations in running form through video analysis, training, and exercise.

Please call 630-264-8440 for pricing and available dates.

Video Gait Analysis (VGA)

Each and every runner deserves individual attention to focus on all the factors that make each runner unique. Runners are evaluated and then filmed running during a one-hour session to determine muscle imbalances that can lead to inefficiencies and potential injury. A follow-up visit is included to review video footage, and instruct on home exercises and drills specific to each runner’s needs.
2 sessions, 60 minutes each
