TEACHING TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS

Are you a physical education teacher or cross-country running coach for Junior High/High school students and want to teach your students how to run with the most efficient and safest form possible? Natural Running Coaching now offers Teaching Tools for Schools to help you do just that.

Children learn to walk and run instinctively based on our inherent human biomechanics. Our natural locomotive gaits we learn as children can change as we get older, into our teens, as well as a result of the long-time wear of shoes that change our biomechanics with extra cushioning and a raised heel. Natural Running Coaching has created a series of videos to help us reteach our bodies how to get back to a form of running based on our own unique human physiology and biomechanics that is both maximally efficient and minimally injurious.

For a one-year subscription of $250 or a two-year subscription of $400, you are given unlimited access to all the Natural Running Coaching videos for your school. Educational videos are included for both students and staff to learn about human biomechanics and injuries that can occur with less optimal gait patterns. Teaching videos are included for staff to learn how to analyze and identify gait patterns as well as provide tools to teach biomechanically optimal forms of both walking and running.

Studies have shown that, in adults, up to 80% of runners get injured every year. The goal of Natural Running Coaching’s Teaching Tools for Schools is to teach kids the most efficient and least injurious form of running while they’re young so they can enjoy a healthy walking and running lifestyle throughout their lives.

For additional information or to subscribe, simply email us your name, school, and school address to info [at] naturalrunningcoaching.com.
