Excellent first session, I look forward to practicing my bare foot running & alignment technique so I can smash my time in home-work run, more effortlessly! I highly recommend.

After many years of trying to improve run technique and dealing with recurring running injuries and getting nowhere I found out about Keith's run technique sessions and booked in. It was the best thing I have ever done for my running. The session was enlightening and Keith is an inspiring and exceptional teacher. He has a unique ability to break down the running stride and explain what you are doing, the effect it has on the body and how to transform it to run with natural good form. After just a few weeks of practicing the new technique I am already seeing big improvements in speed with the same effort and feeling much more comfortable running. Keith also recommended Heidi Jones -The runner's podiatrist. With a combination of Keith's expertise in run coaching and Heidi's specialist advice on running specific strengthening exercises, the ongoing ankle problems that I have had for years have disappeared in a few weeks and I am running faster than I ever have and it is only the beginning. Excited about what lies ahead. Thank you Keith and Heidi

I saw Keith 6 months ago and I raced in the half marathon and beat my PB by 4 1/2 minutes ran a 1.51 I have gone from very much a heal runner to now more forefoot I did some 60 km weeks in training and have not had one injury and I also ran my fastest 5 km run last week at 23.15 which I could never do Looking forward to another catch up with Keith this weekend
