Most would not consider running or walking a skill when in fact it is. As with all skills, educating yourself and practicing will make you more efficient. Running and walking properly can reduce impact, improve efficiency, and eliminate pain. It all starts with a self-assessment of your feet and ankle flexibility. From there, you can identify the steps necessary to improve. We will cover all of this and more in our gait analysis workshop.
When doing cardiovascular activity, the flexibility of your muscles can play a major role in your performance. Having tight muscles can affect your stride length, lead to discomfort in your run, or even cause injury. One way to help combat tight muscles is through stretching. There are different types and ways to stretch. Knowing when and how to use these stretches can improve your flexibility and your run.
Join us in these virtual workshops to learn stretching techniques to prep your body for maximal performance.
