A running technique analysis will provide you with an in depth video analysis of your run, and can answer your questions. A plan of options that can be taken will be provided during the consultation.

Kids running and movement analysis

Have you noticed that your child struggles to move, or cannot control their legs and/or hands during running? Has a coach or a physio commented on your child’s movement or running pattern? Is your child very ‘injury prone’ despite a young age?
We can analyse your child’s movement pattern as well as running technique, through our innovative movement screen and/or video analysis. We will provide feedback on the options that can be undertaken within the clinic.

VO2 max testing
Are you always struggling to find your correct heart rate training zones and just training ‘blindly’? Are you interested in learning your VO2 max?
We undertake a VO2 max test (cycling or running), and monitor oxygen uptake and carbon dioxide production, whilst monitoring your heart rate. An accurate breakdown of the different heart rate training zones will be provided, along with information on how to optimise your training.

Compression boots for recovery
Are you undertaking intense training and wish your legs to be fully recovered for the next training session? Do you need to recover after a hard competition? Compression boots help to massage out the legs through flushing out the toxins from the muscles and stimulate muscle repair, enabling you to return to training with fresher legs.
We make use of high level Normatec compression recovery boots, which has various programmes, to be tailor made to your specific needs.

Movement rehabilitation for pain
Struggling with pain in your body? Neck, shoulder, back, hip, knee ankle problems? When we move incorrectly, we strain the body incorrectly, causing pain. Are you struggling to move again after a surgical procedure? We can teach you to move better and remove your pain, through an innovative movement re-patterning system, as is undertaken by ‘The Movement and Running School’ of London.
