Get Back to Running Faster

Helping runners train smarter to avoid injury and chase down massive PR’s without having to dedicate every minute of their life to training.

Better Training NOT
More Training

Between family, work, and life obligations, it can be challenging to fit in training. We found that faster and injury free running doesn’t come from consuming your life with running, but rather by achieving two specific objectives:

1

Stronger Running

It’s frustrating watching all your friends run while you sit on the sidelines. What we discovered as Physical Therapists’ is that preventing injury comes down to better run form and strength.

With as little as 30-minutes per week, our runners have stayed on the road and out of the doc’s office through our targeted exercises and drills.

2

Smarter Training

It’s unfortunate to tell a patient that they miss their race due to a faulty cookie-cutter training plan. Most online plans position a runner to be over-trained and injured, or under-trained resulting in slower finish times.

There’s a better way to train and it doesn’t involve expensive coaches. It’s the same system that guided Steve Gonser to chop 75-minutes off his marathon and six straight Boston Qualifiers.

A Better Way to Train

We have helped thousands of runners realize that there’s a better way to train, allowing them to beat injury and show up on race day rested and ready to PR.

Custom Training Plans

Too often runners are left under or over prepared on race day. Dated and cookie-cutter training plans foster injury and often lead to unintentional walk breaks on race day. Our training plans are completely customized to your goal, allowing you to reel in runners as they fade throughout the race.

Thank you Steve! I PR'D by 7 minutes! 2:19:40!!!

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.

Jim Pustinger

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!
