Run Lab

Following current events a lot of the UK population has developed an urgent need for simple but effective physical exercise and a mental release. Therefore, the already hundreds of runners we have seen over the years is quickly growing.

A simple assessment for the beginner runner.

Run Lab is aimed at the masses and not the elite. It includes firstly, running gait analysis. Secondly, running strengthening exercises. Thirdly, running plan prescriptions.

For instance, 65-80% of recreational runners get injured each year. Pain during running and pain after running are very common complaints for the beginner runner. Usually this comes down to simple faults in 1 or more of the 3 elements we look at during our 1 hour assessment. In conclusion, it is nothing too technical or complicated but just doing the simple things well can make a significant difference to your running.
