Run Lab is for the masses. Not for the elite. A simple assessment for the beginner runner. Running gait analysis. Running strengthening exercises. Running plans.

Sheffield’s running community is one of the largest in the UK, and its getting bigger!

65-80% of recreational runners get injured each year. Pain during running and pain after running are very common complaints for the beginner runner. Usually this comes down to simple faults in 1 or more of the 3 elements we look at during our 1 hour assessment. Nothing too technical or complicated. Just doing the simple things well can make a significant difference to your running.
