Rebecca B W

13 minute marathon PR! I had to fight to hang on for my first sub-4 finish. Loved using Base six in my training and looking forward to more...after I recover.

Ramona M

Ran my B race, Hershey Half Marathon, today at the Sweetest Place on Earth. PR by 6.5 minutes!

This is my second review of RunSmart Online. I can't speak highly enough of this site and Steve. I became a patient at Steve's PT practice in February 2013. Since then, Steve has helped me fight through several running injuries. I am now feeling better than ever, and running as fast as I was 3 years ago. By following Steve's expert advice, I have been able to run not 1, but 3 PRs in 2014 at various distances (including a new marathon PR by over 16 minutes). I am a tried and true believer in RS Online!!

Plantar fasciitis can seriously take the fun out of running! I've struggled with this injury for over a year, getting only temporary relief from ice, specialty socks, cortisone, active release treatments, and rest. That excruciating first step of the day was becoming a way of life until I started the Base 6 workouts. The functional strength and balance exercises (workouts day 4, 7 and 8) have effectively eliminated this nagging problem, even while ramping up mileage for my next marathon. And yes I'm getting faster too, posting times I haven't seen in 3 years.

I have been a subscriber to RunSmart's unlimited access of their training videos for just a few weeks. What do I think so far? As a competitive runner, I think it's great source of 'run specific' training information, workouts and exercises. As a new user, my immediate RunSmart goal is to cycle through the RunSmart BaseSix boot camp videos at least three or four times over the next few months. I am certain this training will improve my running strength, balance and form.

Great website with great information that is helping me get stronger and to become a better more well-rounded runner.

Tanya Buchko

I caught Steve's talk at the Buffalo Marathon Expo and what he said about balance made a lot of sense to me. I've had incredibly good luck with injuries over the years but I don't want to take my good health for granted so I figured I'd give his 12 videos bootcamp series a try. After getting six days in I can already feel the results and not just by it making me stronger but I also feel faster too.

Christopher Loughlin

RunSmart and Steve Gonser are simply the best way to train! 3 years older than my last marathon- but 20 minutes faster - and heading back to Boston! (Huge thanks, Steve!)The workouts on RunSmart are brilliant and they work. I'm a fan of Day 3, Day 7, Day 12 and Buttcamp. Keep 'em coming!

Jenni P

So happy about my new PR this morning for 5k. Thank you, Steve for your program! It helped a lot! Also, first time I won 1st place for my age group! Photo with the princesses during the award ceremony.

Build the plan, follow the plan, trust the plan. Weeks of running in the cold and the dark, balancing on one leg, shaking through yoga and muttering rude words at my foam roller. The result?....5 minutes off my pb and my first ever sub 4 in some of the worst conditions I've run in! Yeah. RunSmart is worth it!
