Running is a great way to stay fit, improve cardiovascular health, and clear your mind. Whether you are training for your first half marathon, ironman, or simply starting out with a couch to 5k program, it is important to understand the fundamentals of running to prevent injuries and achieve your goals. This is where running assessments come in.

Running assessments are an extremely powerful tool in injury prevention, especially for new runners.

They can help you identify potential areas of weakness or imbalances in your body, and develop a customised training plan to address them. That’s why Rachael, a professional physiotherapist and a runner herself, emphasises the importance of running assessments in her practice.

According to Rachael, we were all born to run, but modern life has made us forget the skills required for running stability and strength. By helping clients with training plans, loading volumes, and injury prevention through specific mobility and strength work for running, Rachael ensures that they understand their body and its needs, which is key to their success.

If you’re experiencing niggles while running or want to prevent injuries in the future, booking a running assessment with Rachael is the first step. She has a deep understanding of what it means to be a runner and the importance of injury prevention for long-term success.

In conclusion, running assessments are a vital component of injury prevention, especially for new runners. With the right guidance and customised training plan, you can address potential weaknesses in your body and achieve your running goals. Remember, understanding your body and its needs is the key to success.
