The Runner’s Package
The ultimate package for running guidance
You’re getting into running and you need guidance. Maybe you’re a beginner and don’t know where to start. Or you’ve been running for a while and are looking to improve or target a specific event.
Increasing running volume does come with an increased injury risk. Here at the Running Science clinic, we specialise in reducing the risk of overload injury. Our approach is informed and practical, based on years of clinical experience. Do you have questions like these?
- How much should I run?
- Is my technique ok?
- Is heel striking bad?
- What shoes should I wear?
- What about shin pain?
- Should I do strength work?
Whether you’re new to running or just keen to increase your base, the runner’s package can help you. Having some one-on-one guidance can dramatically reduce injury risk and help with performance. This package contains four key sessions to get you off on the right foot
Whats included in our runner’s package?
Session 1: Initial consultation and biomechanical assessment
Expect a thorough analysis of your body, identifying key areas of tightness, weakness or concern. Any injuries can be assessed here if they’re present and we’ll prescribe running footwear in this session too.
Session 2: Running technique session
This is our signature service. Get advice and analysis on foot strike, leg swing, posture, cadence and more. Your running technique may be tweaked to reduced stress on your body or to improve performance. Expect video footage and visual feedback during this session.
Session 3: Runners strength session
Our practitioners will design a realistic strength program to help with your physical performance. This will fit in with your busy schedule and existing exercise regime (if any). You don’t need any weights to get started on strength – our programs are designed to use resources you already have.
Session 4: Running program
Perhaps the most important session in the package, the running program will focus on running volume.
Running overload is the main risk of running injuries and our practitioners have firsthand experience here. Returning from a major injury? Training for your next ultra marathon? We begin with where you’re at, with your short-term and long-term goals in mind to get you going. This is a verbal session and we’ll analyse your running history. Please bring in any relevant history (eg. Strava) for this session.
Our runner’s package is priced at $590. You can include a gift voucher to the value of $100 for an extra $60, which can ben redeemed for running shoes (with a shoeFIT of course!) or other clinical services.
