The Movement & Running School® Network is expanding across Europe, Asia & the UAE.

The Movement & Running School, founded by Mike Antoniades, started out as Sport Dimensions in 1994. Mike realised that rehabilitation after injury was the biggest requirement that athletes needed and the company became very successful in getting athletes back from injury, not only in less time, but faster and stronger. It established a reputation across the UK as the place to go to if you have been injured or want to get faster.
Over the years, Mike developed many protocols and methodologies to change people’s movement for both rehabilitation and performance. He wanted to offer recreational athletes and runners the same support system that he was offering elite and professional athletes, so in 1999, he set up the very first Movement & Running School® centre the first dedicated Speed and Rehabilitation Centre in the UK. This was a vehicle to teach people how to run and to teach them how to run faster – with amazing success. Because of the successful results, other health professionals wanted to learn The Movement & Running School® Method. So, a franchise operation and education division for The Running School® was set up to share the information and protocols with others.

We offer much more than just running, we provide the link between rehabilitation and performance.  We help others to move better whatever their goal whether it is for rehabilitation after injury, movement development for kids or as a fall’s prevention programme. The overriding methodology behind our success is the “Movement Re-Patterning Method”, which is an extremely effective method in changing movement patterns for everyday movement, rehabilitation, running and speed.

Our Vision

We aim to develop our partner network to allow as many people as possible to gain access to the quality of resources that are usually reserved for elite athletes.

We now have Accredited centres in the UK, Germany, Norway, Spain, Malta, Austria, Japan, USA .

Who do we work with?

We have trained and introduced our Methodology into several Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Performance and Rehabilitation centres around the world who are using our Performance & Rehabilitation methods.



Our partners come from a variety of backgrounds and the methodology is being used in Sporting, Education and Medical organisations, like Physiotherapy, Sports Therapy, Osteopathy clinics as well as professional football clubs and performance centres. They have the option of being an Accredited Certified Movement & Running School Centre.

You have 3 different training options:

Become an Accredited Centre:

  • Accredited Running School
  • Accredited Movement School
  • Accredited Movement & Running School


We offer ongoing support, new modules and programmes and further training on an annual basis.


Training Overview

In depth theory and practical on how you can help your patients & athletes to determine the biomechanical cause of their inefficiencies, injury and prevent future injury. Learn how to analyse walking & running movement patterns both dynamically (while running) and through functional low-level movement.

Training Overview

In depth theory and practical sessions to enhance your coaching skills and learn how you can help your clients to run more efficiently and reduce their risk of injury.  This training will teach you how to coach individuals and groups on how to improve their running technique or return to running after injury.

The running technique and movement re-patterning protocol is based on a functional biomechanical model, developed by The Running School®, which is broken down into simple steps to help runners—from beginner to elite—to change running technique.

Training Overview

No matter what your starting point you can always get faster!

Speed and quickness are skills that can be taught and not just something you were born with. By using a number of specialised acceleration training techniques and multi-directional speed protocols, which stimulate both the muscular and the nervous system, athletes can improve their speed, agility, acceleration and power.

Derived from years of developing speed and working with professional football clubs and Track and field athletes in the UK and Europe but also the knowledge and experience brought from other multi-directional sports like American Football, Rugby and Handball. These techniques have been used with academy and professional athletes in the UK and Europe with great success in injury prevention and multi-directional speed development. The techniques apply to other multi-directional sports like Hockey, Netball, Lacrosse and Basketball

Training Overview

Dynamic Movement Skills™ (DMS) is a rehabilitation and performance training methodology. Dynamic Movement Skills stimulates the nervous system and the proprioceptive system and helps to refine and develop neuromuscular efficiency and motor patterns.

This helps to improve gross motor skills, balance, rhythm, coordination speed and agility. These skills ultimately help to increase movement competence and confidence in functional movement during rehabilitation, running and sport.

We use protocols to stimulate and enhance the proprioceptive system and to improve the interaction with the ground. We also use the same methodology as part of our rehabilitation process.

Running & Movement Training for Kids

Training Overview

Based on 30 years of research and coaching experience, this training covers both the theoretical and practical application of what to observe, what to change and how to teach movement. Teaching children to become physically competent, get better body control in walking, running and dynamic movement skills improves self-confidence and enhances learning and social skills.

Movement Re-Patterning and Rehabilitation

  • Movement Re-patterning after Injury, Surgery or Neurological issues
  • Movement Re-education
  • Falls Prevention

Training Overview

This education will take you through a unique and functional approach from Walking Movement and Biomechanical Analysis to rehabilitation and will focus on re-educating movement patterns interrupted after injury, surgery or inactivity. You will learn a series of functional techniques that you can immediately use in your practice.
This movement re-patterning methodology has been developed to educate the neuromuscular and proprioceptive systems, not only on how to move, but how fast to move thereby enhancing movement efficiency, movement performance and injury prevention.

Rehabilitation Protocols

We use the Movement Re-Patterning methodology and protocols to deliver functional and effective recovery and return to sport.

  • We have developed Protocols including exercise Libraries and video instructions for several protocols including Rehabilitation after Injury or Surgery for:
      • Knees
      • Foot/Ankle
      • Muscle Strains
      • Hips
      • Back and upper thoracic
      • Shoulder
      • Hamstrings
      • Neurological Rehabilitation


  • Return to Play Protocols for Running and Multidirectional Sport
  • Movement for Kids with Dysfunction & Neurodivergence

Movement Training and Falls Prevention for Seniors

Exercise advice and guidance to prevent falls in older adults. Best practice recommendations based on experiential practice and updated research.

Exercise is the Primary Intervention that can prevent and reduce falls in those individuals who are at risk of falling as well as the general population.

Our experience in working with Movement Re-education Programmes that include Mobility, Balance Training, Walking and Cross Lateral exercises that challenge the proprioceptive system have the utmost effect on regaining balance and preventing falls.
