With Carl Borg
This seminar is for beginning and advanced runners alike. Participants will receive two days of run instruction on the POSE Method and mechanics of running. Each individual will receive feedback on their run technique via video analysis (before and after) during the seminar and six weeks of homework to be completed in the weeks following. During the seminar individuals will be put through drills to transform and improve their running style to a more efficient and effective method, while improving race times and decreasing the chance for injury. A portion of the seminar will also be spent on injury prevention for runners and any other questions participants may have. Each participant will receive a Tempo Trainer to aid in training. Only 18 spots are available so act fast to bring your running to the next level!
What is the POSE Method?
The POSE Method is a system for teaching human movement developed by 2-time Olympic Coach Dr. Nicholas Romanov. The name of the method comes from the word “pose,” or “body position.” During movement, the body passes through an infinite number of positions. Most of the positions (or poses) are transitional movements and are the result, not the cause, of proper positioning. The ability of certain poses to integrate the whole chain of preceding and subsequent movements into one whole, wasting no energy on inconsequential movement laid the foundation of the POSE Method.
What can it do for you?
The POSE Method can be applied to any human movement. In sports, application of the POSE Method can dramatically improve training and racing performance, help prevent injuries and give a competitive edge. The first POSE Technique was made available to the general public, published for the first time in Russia in 1981, in 1997 and was the first official and complete running technique on the market. With a number of running styles available today, the Pose Method of Running is currently the only method for teaching running technique and the only running technique in the world scientifically proven to reduce impact on the knees by 50 percent.
