In the two months since training with Keith I have run two personal best times over10km and also completed a personal best City to Surf. I have also found that after long runs I am less fatigued due to a more efficient stride. I recommend any runner who is serious about improving their technique book a session with Keith.

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.

While I had been dabbling around the edges of the 'natural running movement' for a few years (reading, exploring etc...), spending just one hour with Keith, was more powerful and effective than so many hours spent prior. Keith is a committed expert who knows exactly what he's talking about. Experiencing the shift of approach and technique under his watchful and caring eyes makes a huge difference. I'm looking forward to injury free and faster miles ahead.

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.
