CINCINNATI (WKRC) – If you are planning to run in the Flying Pig this weekend or just starting a new fitness program, a running coach can set you up for success.
The team at OrthoCincy in West Chester says a running coach can help reduce the future risk for injury by designing an individualized program. That’s whether a person is a beginner or an advanced runner or just wants to shape up after a year of sitting during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jackie Sanders, an OrthoCincy physical therapy supervisor, does this in several ways, but especially for runners with the help of what’s called gait evaluation.
“It’s when we videotape the runner on a treadmill and we’re able to slow that footage down to about one-eighth speed on my iPad and my computer program. And we draw angles and look at different cycles of the gait itself,” said Jackie.
In addition to this, a person can benefit from mixing it up. Cross-training with this can make a big difference in maintaining good health.
“Having some more maintenance things to do to help me kind of stay healthier and know how to get myself back to running quicker has certainly been helpful,” said Brett Sanders, a runner and Jackie’s husband.
Every person is unique, so you can find out more if you
