As someone who has incorporated running into my weekly fitness regime since I was a teenager, I figured it would be good to have my technique professionally assessed. Over the course of three sessions with Ash, my movement, speed, balance, flexibility and mental state were assessed, deconstructed and then rebuilt in such a way that I don't know how I managed to run the way I had been all these years. At each session Ash took the time to examine every aspect of my approach to running, identified issues, discussed them and then built strategies for me to improve outcomes. As a result I have made conscious changes to my technique and personal strategies which have improved my speed, reduced my injury rate and increased my recovery time noticeably. What is more, the aftercare following the assessment has been fantastic. Ash is available at any stage for me to seek guidance and support. All his work with me was documented in an informative and comprehensive report that I can refer to at any time. Additionally, Ash and my performance coach, Dave regularly liaise regarding my overall training plan and fitness progress to ensure the strategies they have both put in place for me align and support my own personal fitness goals. I can't recommend the running assessment more highly for those who run, regardless of the frequency or intensity of your training.
I have just completed the Absolute Health & Performance Running Assessment Package.
The assessment was a really thorough review of my mobility, stability, balance, strength and control. As someone who trains with weights regularly, I was amazed how different the two sides of my body were in terms of mobility and stability. Clearly exercising for strength and running are different things. The videoing of my running before and after some activation exercises highlighted issues with my running style, and how it could be improved with some simple exercises.
Initially, I thought three sessions seemed a lot of time; but in hindsight it really provided the opportunity to do a thorough assessment when I was fresh and fatigued, and to review and address my running technique.
I now have a comprehensive musculoskeletal and running assessment with objective data, an exercise plan to address the weaknesses, and a running plan to get me back on the track and stay there!
I cannot recommend this package highly enough!
I recently had a running assessment with the physio at Absolute Health & Performance. I was unaware of how poor my running technique was and how this had likely correlated with several injuries over the years, including 2 knee surgeries. My running assessment package with the physio included slow motion filming of my technique, a range of exercises to address strength and movement, along with a structured and easy to follow plan moving forward.
We have now come up with a strategy to address my technique and strength issues, with these changes being relatively easy to implement. In the past month since making these small changes I have recorded my best 2km time trial time, and feel confident leading into this football season that I will remain injury free. I would strongly recommend the running assessment package at Absolute Health & Performance for not just runners, but people in team sports that involve high amounts of running
