StrideUK - It's not just what your feet are doing!
If you believe you've had your running technique analysed before other than at StrideUK, think again. Unlike 99% of all other running stores in the uk offering video gait analysis service, StrideUK stand proud to be one of the very few video gait analysis companies that analyse the whole body instead of just your feet.
As much as running shoes are important...we show you how to run better!
|Since launch in August 2008, StrideUKs clientele has grown so quickly due to being one of the very few Video Gait Analysis companies that pay strict attention as to how the entire body performs during the process of running. Without promoting one particular running style for all, StrideUK fine tune each and every ones running technique... individually.
INTRODUCING SALLY BALDWIN!
The following analysis is that of Sally Baldwin, representing GB in the world championships next year. This is a 4 part recording to demonstrate the depth of information we provide if visiting to have your running technique analysed. To see more of her analysis click here...
The question is... how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go!
Buckle your seat belt as things are getting even more interesting at StrideUK. As times are changing, new approaches as to how running performance should be interpreted are dramatically changing, often conflicting to past and present information that many therapists are still perscribing. Old fashioned approaches tend to deliver old fashioned results. Here at StrideUK, we're massive advocates to covering the pure basics of good simple running, but the question is, with the power packed clout of data we can provide you... how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?
(Be warned, the information we can provide you could seriously effect the way you approach running performance and injury prevention)
What sort of runner are you?
A new runner?

An injured runner?
Tired of persistent injuries or training plateaus? Visit us for a complete understanding as to why you get injured despite weeks of unsuccessful physio treatments and forced rest. Running technique analysis proves the greatest test of time – ‘seeing is believing!’
A competitive runner?
The edge comes from fine tuning running technique, uncovering imbalances that create performance fatigue during the chronicity of running. It’s about reducing the negatives to increase the positives!

Our doors are always open (unless you ask us to close them!)
Privacy is an important part of your running technique analysis at StrideUK as it's always important that you feel comfortable using our facilities. Following our investment of a fully glazed running gait lab enclosure, running in your smalls, tri suit or speedos can now be restricted to just yourself and the performance analyst (unless public display is your stuff). Our freshly refurbed running technique lab includes a state of the art 'ortho gait' treadmill simulating as close to natural running as you're going to get, 3CCD digital cameras to film you 360 degrees, calibration boards to identify the slightest of biomechanical weaknesses and a bespoke high speed lighting system to capture every movement in best clarity possible (plus an endless jar of Wine gums that we pull out for the good ones!)

By clicking on the image will allow you to see an example of the feedback reports we provide our clients visiting to have their running technique analysed. This is one of many reports we provide based on the technical depth you wish to work at. Even though Biomechanics can be a complex, multi faceted brain strain (often for even the white coats at Loughborough), we pride ourselves on delivering visually rich, easy to follow reports including exercise drills and homework! Never underestimate the power of simplicity!

This month we review - Mudstacle!
This year in the UK, some 450,000 people will pay to crawl through mud, scale over walls, swing across monkey bars, swim through icy water, over a course of 5-20km. ‘Mud-related’ obstacle course races (OCRs) are now everywhere, which is quite amazing given that 5 years ago there were only a small handful of them in the UK. At StrideUK, we have seen this change and have noticed an ever increasing number of people coming to see us for video gait analysis to help them prepare for muddy obstacle courses. Having received a personal invite from Mudstacle themselves to compete at one of their events, we sent our biomechanics running guru Matt Phillips to get down and dirty at 'Judgment Day' Read more...
Review - Peter Barnes, marathon runner and physics lecturer!
I'm 56 and have been running 6 years.I ache in lots of places, my stretching is ineffective and I want a sub 4H marathon time.StrideUK addressed my issues and goals, gave me an excellent analysis of my current state and showed me how to avoid future injury, improve my running efficiency and hopefully, my overall speed.
As a Science teacher and a Physics lecturer, I was keen to know details and I was impressed with the way in which information was presented.Easy for a lay person to follow but sufficiently detailed to satisfy the most demanding questions. I strongly recommend visiting StrideUK
