'Love to Run'
Assessment, Video Analysis & Technique

Are you keen to run further, faster and with more joy?
Do you want to start running but not sure how?

Whatever your running goals we can assist you in achieving them.
Through observation and instant video feedback we assess your current abilities through the basic movement milestones of walking, squatting, jumping and running. We look at your "hardware" (structural stability of your foot & ankle) and your "software" (postural strength and stability i.e. ability to jump and balance on one leg). We start basic whatever your level, providing sound education and advice whilst at all times abiding by the mantra of Posture, Rhyme & Relaxation!

We offer a thorough running assessment paired with a comprehensive follow up plan - to ensure you reach your goals. In the follow up sessions we will review technique, progress exercises and make you run faster, harder, stronger. The Running Assessment + will give you the insights, tools and knowledge to achieve your true potential - fast.


To get the most out of your running assessment we have structured the assessment as one initial appointment and 3 follow up appointments.

Senior Sports Physiotherapist, Born To Run Coach

Originally hailing from the UK ​I had the great honor to train with the world-renowned running expert Lee Saxby. As a Born to Run certified coach I'm passionate about coaching the skill of running and I do this through the movement mantra of Posture, Rhythm & Relaxation. Running is very much a skill, one that can be broken down into its constituent parts and improved upon in order to create a more biomechanically sound & efficient runner. There is nothing more pleasing to me than seeing someone develop into a skilled runner, it looks and feels like art in motion!

Trail running is where you'll find me most weekends, getting muddy in a forest or exploring parks and tracks in my own back yard urban jungle. My background is actually in gymnastics and Triathlon but more recent years I found it's the freedom of running that really keeps me buzzing.

Through my own running journey I've experienced set backs and injury (even Physio's aren't immune!), however I have learnt some valuable lessons and hope to impart my knowledge to anyone with an open mind and willingness to have their own thoughts and bodies challenged.
