RunRight is great for runners of all abilities.
A detailed video assessment of your running technique combined with a functional movement screen (FMS) to assess weaknesses and asymmetries in your body. We then take you through a program of specific running drills and corrective exercises to achieve a more efficient running style, boost your performance and reduce your risk of injury.
