A second set of eyes is always a good thing. whether you’re polishing up a work project or wondering if your living room should actually be painted orange.

Your running form is no exception. In fact, except for race pictures, you rarely see yourself running. While you can feel balanced and strong on the run, your body’s subtle movements, which a seasoned coach can see, may be telling a different story.

If your right hip drops with every step, or your posture is too upright, or your arms are spaghetti-like, you may be setting yourself up for an inefficient run (at best) or a serious injury (at worst).

QUESTIONS + ANSWERS

Truthfully, nearly every runner can benefit from an expert coach watching her form and offering feedback; the coach may uncover an injury-in-waiting or an easy way to increase efficiency.

○ Are regularly injured;
○ Are coming back from pregnancy, when alignment has shifted;
○ Want to increase speed;

When you register for Form Analysis, you’ll receive a detailed email that includes a short questionnaire and instructions on how to film your running video. (Any smartphone can be used to shoot the video.) Once you get these items completed, you send it to the specified email address.

After you purchase Form Analysis, you have two weeks to get your video to the coaches.

After you email your video and short questionnaire, you receive a response that allows you to book a call with Coach Liz or Jen at a time that works with your schedule. You discuss your running and form on a 30-minute call.

You’ll receive an email with up to five recommendations for drills and form focus points. You’ll spend about five weeks integrating them, then film another video. You’ll email that second video to the coaches, and they’ll respond with a final email with feedback on your improvements.

You can absolutely register for another round of Form Analysis and repeat the process.

Absolutely! Because of your training load, you’ll be primed to absorb the recommendations. Just be sure to schedule your Form Analysis towards the beginning of your training cycle, so you have plenty of time before race day to integrate changes.

Ideally, you’re able to run at least three times a week with the recommendations.

We totally get that life happens. After your call, you have up to eight weeks to send your follow-up video.

No. We’re confident that if you diligently integrate the recommendations, your running will benefit. We are unable to offer refunds after you begin the process.
