In CrossFit we always talk about the benefits of functional movements (exercises that mimic what we do in real life) and arguably the most functional of all is running, which is why it will always be a part of our programme. It is arguably unparalleled in it's ability to improve your aerobic capacity and to help to train your body to clear lactate
We have organised for Shane Benzie of Running Reborn to take a 4-hour running workshop on Saturday 12th November from 12pm to 4pm. Shane Benzie is the founder of Running Reborn, a running technique coach and movement specialist. He has many years experience in outdoor fitness having completed many endurance-running events including the Marathon Des Sables.
During his career Shane has focussed on coaching and spent time in the US and the UK studying and qualifying as a running technique coach and movement specialist. He works with clients teaching a running form that concentrates on energy efficiency and reducing the effects of impact on the runner’s body. This running form can be utilised by all runners from elite to complete beginners.
He brings with him a unique approach to coaching running technique, concentrating on natural movement and in particular the fascial system which is responsible for posture, proprioception of the foot, elastic recoil and the production of elastic energy in the body. This natural approach is backed up with technology that is also unique to technique analysis, allowing laboratory quality analysis to take place in the natural environment.
The session will incorporate 360 degree video analysis of every participant followed by a detailed analysis of technique and form with drills and progressions to improve followed by a further video analysis session at the end to see what progress you have made.
The cost of the session will be £40 with spaces strictly limited to 12 so that everyone receives enough individual attention during the session. This is amazing value for money considering individual running coaching with video analysis can often set you back hundreds of pounds! This workshop is a must for anyone who runs in addition to our programme but also for those who simply want to improve their movement efficiency and running technique.
Please bring your £40 to the office to reserve your space!
