After years of wondering why I was still being injured and spending $$$ on shoes and not getting anywhere, reading Keith's book and having the coaching I am grateful for his advice and guidance.

I'm 60 and apart from a bit of sport when I was younger I've never ran. Recently I decided to get fit and started running-lost 30kgs in 18 months. Decided that if I was going to run a bit may as well do it properly so I booked to see Keith Bateman. Man, what a mind-blowing first session yesterday. The guy is just so knowledgable and so helpful. I thought I was doing reasonably well, but Keith has opened some new and exciting possibilities that will take me on a different journey that I know I will enjoy. Thank you Keith, in my assessment you are indeed a master of your craft.

With only two short sessions with Keith I have learnt so much! Keith is a fountain of running knowledge and experience and his advice has helped me knock 29 minutes off my C2S time! I never thought I'd qualify for the green group let along get under 80 minutes! Thank you for sharing your wisdom and I can't wait to learn more and hopefully continue to improve further.
