What is it?
This pioneering training programme will provide you with training and authorization to practice as a Certified Running Technique Specialist®. It is designed to enhance your professional knowledge and coaching expertise and add to your existing job, business or skill set.
You will learn the in-demand skill of analysing running biomechanics and, more importantly, the unique training methods to changing running technique, increasing efficiency and reducing risk of injury. Knowing the techniques behind coaching movement is one thing but being able to change people’s running technique and apply this coaching knowledge is another. By taking part in this programme, you will become an expert at both.
Programme Features & Benefits
When you have completed your education and practical training, you will have the confidence and skills to analyse, re-educate and refine running technique and help athletes with performance training. You will also gain the knowledge and practical experience to offer group sessions and coaching.
You will receive a comprehensive training manual with both theory and practical session plans. You will also receive a library of videos and images of exercises. More importantly, you will gain the expertise to be able to design your own sessions according to the needs and goals of your clients.
