  • Cutting edge video analysis software 
  • 60 minute detailed assessment of YOUR running style
  • 3 x Follow up sessions to consolidate improvement and make you Run faster Perform better

Whether you’re a recreational runner or have completed a number of marathons, our running package helps tune your body to be more efficient and reduce your chance of injury.

We understand the frustration and disappointment you feel when you suffer pain, experience a one-off injury or endure a recurring problem. Unfortunately, this stuff’s pretty much par for any runner’s course, but we can help you now so you keep running in the long-term. Even if you’re lucky enough to be pain-free right now, it may be that you’re training for an event or simply want to improve your performance? Either way, we understand and you’re now in the right place.

Kaylan O’Meara and Luca Piazza are our specialist running physios. Using specialist video running analysis software they will do an in-depth assessment of both your body and style and then give you practical and simple steps to improve your performance (currently only available at our Edinburgh clinic).

What we cover with you:

  • Video your running from 3 different views and discuss our findings with you on video playback
  • Highlight your current body alignment, foot position when landing and cadence
  • Work through practical steps to make instant changes to your running
  • Provide your new ‘Warm Up’ and how to do this correctly
  • Be guided through a progressive home/gym based strength programme that will compliment your running training
  • Advice on running loads and frequency building up towards your event
  • Get given a video file of your running technique (before and after)

We believe in making a lasting positive change. To help make this happen, our running package includes:

  • 2 x Follow up appointments for re-assessment, running technique tweaks and  exercise progressions to ensure your new running technique has been consolidated.
  • A complimentary post event follow up session. 

All inclusive package price - £125
