Back to Basics

Aligned – Grounded – Centered – Relaxed – the fundamentals of good running form.

A one-on-one session is an hour of supervised individually tailored form-work on these four fundamentals (including video taping) as well as specific pacing guidelines so you understand exactly how to use the techniques effectively during your daily workouts and why they’re important.

As coaches go, Art is one of the best at listening to your individual experience, studying the limits of  your movement patterns closely and giving you accurate feedback and encouragement. You’ll work with all the form fundamentals using attention-demanding challenges that build on what you already do well. Plus learn how to make spontaneous alterations in your stride pattern, change paces and terrain, and play with rhythms and ground contact time – all running skills that give you a mechanical advantage and reduce your risk of overuse injury by breaking up the repetition of the same automatic motions. The new awareness and adaptability you gain from one-on-one work will help you have better runs immediately and enjoy your training process more than ever.

What to be ready for – I ask that you save your daily workout for the session, wear your running clothes, including warm-ups and bring writing materials in case you want to jot down any specifics that resonate with you. These are low stress -low exertion sessions where the focus is more on body learning and mental training. If it goes well, I have plenty of other activities for your physical conditioning.

Locations – Ideally, we meet privately once every three weeks at a conducive road, track or trailhead here in Boulder County, agreed upon in advance. I love to teach in beautiful places! As we progress, be ready to the explore a new open space, mountain park or another scenic running venue.

Through One-on-one work you get detailed instructions and answers to all your questions:

  • How much training is enough?
  • How long is long enough, how fast is fast enough?
  • What are the best times to do each workout?
  • Who are the most important people to work with?
  • What are the most important things to do at all times?

One on One Running Coaching

Get Physical

“Natural running form is not some good feeling or some particular state of flow. The state of flow exists when you run in the right posture. — In this posture there’s less need to dwell on any one fine point of perfect running form. You already have it. The most important thing is to own your physical body. If you slump, you will lose yourself. Your mind will be wandering about somewhere else; you will not be in your body.”  read more
