FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is running technique?
Running Technique is an individual style of running. There are many different styles, however, some are more efficient than others. The style I teach is the Pose Method of Running and this reduces impact on the body and increases the efficiency of your run.
How are your sessions priced?
How many sessions will I need?
Most people show considerable improvement in 3 – 4 sessions. How many sessions you have depends on how proficient you want to become. Once you get there, you will know.
For those who want to continue running without face to face sessions, We also write online programs for athletes and customise programs to include technique sessions.
Where do you conduct sessions?
As we only need a small space we can run a session in a car park or park convenient to you. I am located in the Windsor/ Prahran area but feel free to call and we can organise a location close to your work or home.
I'm new to running. What should I expect?
Hey, welcome to running! The technique sessions I run are different to most training sessions. These will be one on one and involve a lot of two way discussion and short (10-20m) runs. My aim is to get you familiar with the movements needed to run properly so you can avoid injury.
This is not a fitness session so it doesn’t matter how fit you are. This is a fun, educational session where you can try different movements to help you learn the skill of running.
Is running dangerous?
Reading some of the statistics floating around at the moment, it sounds like it is very dangerous! But it doesn’t need to be. There are suggestions that 80% of runners will be injured each year. That’s crazy! That’s part of the reason I started Enfer Running. Learning proper technique will reduce unnecessary impact on muscles and joints and reduce the likelihood of an injury.
Good technique mixed with an ongoing mobility practice and some strength and conditioning will help you run strong for the rest of your life and I am here to help you do that.
How do I know if my technique is already ok?
Compare yourself to a 4 year old running! Kids run with great form! But even if you already run well we can still work on the intricacies of great technique. Remember, even the pros have coaches…
I am currently injured, can I still sign up?
If you can walk without pain we can get started. These technique classes are simplified movements with no load, therefore, anyone can do them. If you do have any injuries, please let me know before we start so that we can adjust movements if necessary.
Technique adjustment should be part of all rehabilitation for runners. In many cases it is poor technique which causes the injury so while you work with your practitioner to heal your injury, technique improvement will ensure that it never comes back.
