The running assessment and management plan for improved performance, injury prevention and rehabilitation.
RunFit is an in-depth, gold-standard running assessment designed to help you make the most of your training and achieve your running goals faster and without injury. We’re running experts, with lots of experience assessing and treating runners.
Who are RunFit appointments for?
Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just getting started, our Bodyset RunFit service will help you minimise your risk of injuries and improve your performance so that you can reach your running goals faster. And if you’ve signed up to any marathons, half marathons or 5k races, our service is a great way to ensure that you’re ready to meet the demands of your training.
Why is RunFit so important?
Running is now the most popular sport in the UK with over 6.5 million runners nationwide. It’s not surprising, as it’s an accessible and sociable way to exercise with many benefits for both our physical and mental health. However, as many as 79% of runners sustain a running-related injury each year. We want to provide you with the tools to stay injury free and running for longer. We want to you to be able to run further and faster with less effort.
What can I expect from my RunFit assessment?
After a RunFit assessment you’ll have a stronger understanding of your running technique, more knowledge on how to avoid injuries, and a detailed plan on how you can run better, and faster, for longer.
During your RunFit session, we will:
- Carry out a video gait analysis of your running style.
- Take a history of your running activities and any injuries you’ve had.
- Give instant advice on what you can change and work on to improve.
- Develop a personalised running management plan, including exercise therapy and improvements to your running gait.
- Recommend follow-up physiotherapy sessions, were we look at your mobility, strength and weaknesses, tailoring a plan to help you improve your running performance.
- Follow-up sessions would also include soft tissue work as needed.
What are the forms I need to fill out prior to my assessment?
When you book your session, we’ll send you a running assessment form to fill out and send back. The running assessment form helps us understand more about your running history, saving time during the session so we can make the most of the time you spend with us.
What should I bring and wear to my appointment?
Wear something comfortable. Preferably shorts and a tight-fitting shirt, so we can better assess how you move. Bring the running shoes you run most often in or want to be assessed in. Bring any extra software information you want to share (eg Garmin, FitBit, Strava etc).
