Our Running Lab will suit Runners of all abilities in Great Dunmow and surrounding areas. Should you be a seasoned runner or just starting out we can provide you with an in-depth assessment to ensure you avoid or recover from injury

We offer two different packages that include assessment of your flexibility and strength, training programme, running gait as well as specific tests that suits your needs over the course of 3 sessions. It also includes manual therapy to help reduce pain and/or increase flexibility to get you back on your feet. Should you feel the need for more sessions you can upgrade to our Gold package which includes an additional 3 treatment sessions. On completing your package, a review will take place approximately 6 weeks later to ensure the right gains are being made.

Below you can see a brief outline of what we include in each session. To book your running lab sessions, simply contact us today.
