As a biomechanist who specializes in running, I believe that runners can change their gait (the way they run) in order to improve performance and prevent running-related injuries. As an athlete and coach, I understand first-hand the limitations of injury on performance. The key is to train smarter, not necessarily harder.
I have gained experience analyzing competitive athletes as well as the every day runner and have worked on their gait correction through various strategies. I am not only a biomechanist, but am also a Certified Exercise Physiologist (CSEP-CEP), which gives me a well-rounded approach to training and coaching.
