In 2012 I was involved in a near fatal crash, the following complications which included spinal problems and a heart condition meant I spent the next few years not being able to exercise and my health deteriorated. So, in 2016, I took up running to improve my health. I began the, all too common, cycle of run, injury, rest and run again that many new and some experienced runners go through. It didn’t take me too long to realise that there must be a better way to train, to work with my body instead of against it and to dig deeper into how I moved, not just running but in every way. So, learning from coaches who were leaders in their fields, movement specialists, running coaches and other athletes, I completely rewired the way I ran and took minutes off my 5k time while also running more efficiently and most importantly injury free. Then, in 2019 I qualified in my age group for Team GB in Sprint Duathlon and represented GB at the European Championships 2020 and again at the World Championships in 2021, placing 36th in the world in my age group.
With the knowledge and the relevant qualifications I have gained, I began to develop my own program to improve running technique in others. I noticed that the typical “runners strength training” programs were very generic and did not take into account the way the individual moves. Now, using my experience and the knowledge I have gained from the best coaches in their field, I can help others to reach their full potential.
