Running Coaching In Bristol
- We can help you stay injury free

- We can increase your speed whatever your sport
At the heart of what we do is functional movement. The ability of the body to move efficiently is central to being able to perform at your best and stay injury free. Running is a skill and most people have not been taught how to run. Through our unique coaching methodology we have developed the ability to help individuals of all levels and from all sports.
Based on your objectives and what you are trying to achieve, we use our coaching methodology, step-by-step coaching, guidance and motivation (and your hard work!) to help you achieve your goals. Another key function of The Running School is helping people get back to full fitness after injury or surgery.
Whether you are a beginner or someone who is returning from injury it is likely that you are not moving as well as you need to be. So one of the first things that we need to do is do a detailed biomechanical and movement analysis. Through this we identify your weaknesses and movement issues. We believe that if you are not moving efficiently that you will not be able to run efficiently.
Where we start regardless of your level, is by teaching you efficient running technique and changing your movement patterns. We do this through our unique coaching methodology and and training methods. This will help you to achieve your goals.
Once we have improved your technique and movement efficiency then we can work on improving your speed. This is based on your objectives and event and, of course, is dependant on the time and committment that you have to training, strength and recovery. We have developed a number of different speed protocols which we have used successfully with both amateur and professional athletes.
