Run Form Analysis
Questions and Answers
How do I upload my videos, and what are the requirements?
You can find information about recording your video by clicking here. Uploading instructions can be found here. The entire process can be completed quickly. Be sure to capture the best video possible, as it allows our physical therapists to provide the best running form analysis.
Do I have to upload right away?
No. From the date of purchase, you can upload any time in the next year (365 days). That means you can upload at the best time for you. Here are a few scenarios:
1. Injury: Our analysis is a great way to identify the cause of an injury. However, if you’re currently injured and unable to run, we recommend that you upload your video once you’re able to run a minimum of 10 minutes without pain.
2. Upcoming Race: We recommend not changing your run form drastically before your next race. The best time to upload a video and work on your running form is either after a race or if you have a minimum of eight weeks before a race.
What can switching to a proper running form do?
Bad form can lead to injury, especially for beginners. Common pitfalls like low hip strength and a bad running foot strike can put you at risk. Conversely, when you improve your posture and foot strike, you can completely revolutionize your distance running game and reach new PRs. That’s our goal: to give you the drills and tips you need to run better and faster, all while staying injury-free. Even intermediate and advanced runners who have a good running form can still find new areas to work on.
