The rise in popularity of barefoot and minimalist running has sparked a number of people to hit the road in barefoot-style shoes. However, a prevalence of inexperience has led to a growing number of unnecessary injuries. In an effort to increase awareness about running technique, ACE partnered with VIVOBAREFOOT™ on a new 1-day workshop that utilizes the knowledge of internationally renowned running expert Lee Saxby. Join the tribe of skillful runners by learning what it takes to not only practice but teach the benefits of correct running form through improved movement, function and technique. Suitable for personal trainers, instructors, sports therapists and coaches, the workshop provides practical and cutting-edge knowledge and skills to help analyze and improve running technique.
You will learn:
- Running-specific drills to improve function, flexibility and elasticity
- How to perform before-after video analysis of running technique
- Principles of evolutionary biology and how they relate to running biomechanics
- How to apply a unique coaching template for improving running technique
Note: Upon registration, an online component and quiz will be delivered to your My ACE Account. ACE recommends all attendees review those elements before attending the workshop.
