Dear Passionate Runner,
I’m Nigel Crompton, the head coach and creator of the RunTrue system that has helped hundreds of runners to improve their performance and prevent injuries. As a lifelong runner and coach, I’ve seen firsthand the challenges that runners face, from persistent injuries to plateaued performance, and I’ve dedicated my life to finding solutions.
Today, I’m thrilled to invite you to a unique, free 2-part video series, designed specifically to address these challenges. You see, the traditional approach to running – which often involves restrictive shoes and even more restricted movement – only holds us back, leading to injuries and preventing us from realising our true potential.
In Video 1 of this transformative series, we dive into the fascinating world of foot function. The function of the foot is so often poorly understood, yet it holds the key to improving our running technique and reducing the risk of injury. When your foot is locked into a static position by orthotics or restrictive shoes, it doesn’t just affect your foot – it can impact your entire kinetic chain, causing compensation patterns that often lead to injury.
Video 2 expands on these concepts and explores the power of rotation through the pelvis and the torso – just like a boxer, the true power comes from the body moving freely and as an integrated unit.
I believe in the power of natural, functional running and I’ve seen the difference it can make in my students’ lives. I’m so excited for you to join us in this video series and start your journey towards improved running performance and injury prevention. Let’s unlock your running potential together.
