After being an elite swimmer and having an entire team correcting my technique it was a must that I find a coach for my running, a sport I am new too. I had recurring foot injuries over longer distances and really needed someone to tell me what I was doing wrong, and right! WOW! Keith Bateman is truly amazing! A wonderful communicator, patient coach who provides and inspiring and enjoyable session, knowledge and skills I would of never of known to finesse. My partner and I walked away inspired and feeling on top of the world! Thanks Keith

As a Sports Physiotherapist, I see a large variety of running injuries present at our Clinic. Whilst you may injure a joint, muscle, ligament or tendon running - initially you need to address the local site of pain, weakness, inflexibility, poor control, etc - ultimately you need to look at the complete kinetic chain & running gait that overloaded your injured running body part in the first place! Keith has not only been an invaluable part of returning my injured runners back to health, but also contributing to runners' education, gait efficiency & PBs. Thanks Keith!

Keith has improved my technique remarkably. I used to be a very heavy heel-striker. I can now say I am not only a mid-foot runner, but I am running faster, and am far less injury prone. Keith is an amazing technician, and a very impressive runner and motivator. Thanks Keith!

Coaching

Friendly; relaxed; encouraging; informative

With 25 years ski teaching, much at the highest level, 12 years training with one of Australia's best running squads, a keen interest in technique and a remarkable progression in Masters running, I have a great deal of experience and expertise I would like to pass on to other runners.

Together with the expert podiatry knowledge of my wife, Heidi Jones this experience has been published for all to see in our book Older yet faster which is based on these technique-change sessions and her foot- and leg-strengthening program.

Get the most out of your session

I thoroughly recommend that all customers get a copy of the book before coming for a session as it is very helpful in understanding the principles and getting an idea of the methods we use. It is a chance to get a head start on foot strengthening with Heidi's exercises and videos, and to have a reference for after the session.



Newcomers and regular runners ...

I look forward to helping you run easier, smoother, faster

My sessions are conducted at the level of my clients and, since sessions are generally technique-orientated, no more than a good warm-up is normally required. Whether you have been running for some time or are just starting out, I would love the opportunity to help you run better.

Typically I will assess your running technique and discuss with you the most important corrections I think you should make. Relevant drills and exercises will help you feel and remember the changes you need to make.

Other topics are diet, training schedules, suitable races, tactics, equipment etc - generally anything to help you enjoy your running and to become as good as you can be!

I am a great fan of using a measured amount of barefoot running in training and moving toward lighter, less supportive footwear where this is safe for my clients.
