How to improve your running technique
Running … anyone can do it! But “can” is a flexible term. If you watch the participants in a running event, you soon realise that some runners do not have an optimal running economy. Learning the proper running form is beneficial for your health and has many advantages.

Why should you improve your running form?
Running is never just about speed, but always about health and fitness. The correct running technique protects joints and tendons and trains the muscles, and you’ll get faster too.

Four reasons for more effective running:

  • Save energy: The right forward movement reduces energy consumption and increases endurance.
  • Minimise risk of injury: Shock and cushioning movements are optimised by the right running style, thereby reducing injuries.
  • Get faster: If you want to run faster, you need more body tension and this is trained during running and jumping training.
  • Run lighter: A good running technique makes powerful cushioning systems obsolete, keyword natural running shoes. You save weight and train your foot muscles and tendons at the same time.
