Improving Running Form
Janet’s specialty is helping people to improve their running form. One of the simplest ways you can improve your speed and efficiency while lessening your risk of injury is by improving your running form. Unless you’re a natural, running form is one of the most overlooked aspects in the development of a runner.
Janet has combined a system for working with form developed out of Eastern modalities as well as studying literally thousands of runners and their mechanics. Her methods utilize the laws and principles of biomechanics along with specialized neuromuscular techniques to:
minimize energy expenditure
reduce unnecessary impact stress on the joints and muscles
overcome susceptibility to injury
Janet employs a range of creative techniques, skills and focuses in which you will be able to respond to and master changes in your structure, movement, and form.
Individualized Coaching Program
Your coaching program will be tailored to your individual needs. There is no one way of running. Everyone has a different style and different strengths, but there are basic principles that underlie all movement that will enhance the positive and eliminate the negative. Janet finds the keys to unlock each person’s form so that they can be a much freer runner and person in their movement.
Janet’s Coaching Includes:
- Running form improvement
- Injury rehab and prevention
- Training program development
- Race goals
- Mental Strength and Relaxation
- Diet, Lifestyle, and Scheduling
As she works with your form, Janet may temporarily change your running program in order to give you workouts that support and help you integrate these form changes. Integrating the work with your form into your training schedule is an art that is key for improvement. Speedwork, building distance, tempo running, and terrain adjustments all need to be balanced with your form work to build a strong foundation that will take your running to the next level.
