Improve Your Technique

What is the Pose Method?  

The Pose Method of Running is one of the original models of good running technique.  It has been researched and endorsed by the Olympic Training Centers and is taught around the world.  It focuses on utilizing gravity to assist forward movement and to have a softer, quieter landing.  It often decreases a propensity to heel-strike and helps to decrease the forces going through the joints, thereby reducing the risk of injury associated with running.  Learn more at PoseTech.com.

Studies point to the fact that 85% of recreational runners are injured each year.  Our Goals at Peak Performance are to help you decrease running injuries, improve your performance, and help you enjoy running more!

Are you running with good technique?

Many runners are interested in “barefoot running” and running in a more minimalist shoe, but may not be utilizing good running technique. This can potentially lead to injury! Our half-day seminar is presented by certified Pose Running Coaches Melinda Couch, PT and John Hayes, PT, DPT and consists of: august-pose-clinic-006

  • Presentation of the Pose Method, which encompasses landing softly with the foot underneath the hip in proper alignment (promotes better efficiency and shock absorption), learning to utilize gravity to assist in forward movement which increases speed, and more.
  • Video analysis before and after.
  • Drills to help reinforce the new techniques into your nervous system.
  • Discussion and implementation of proper dynamic warm-up vs. static stretching.
  • Discussion of types of footwear.

This seminar was great! It was really helpful to be videod. The active stretching and warm-up was very instructional too!      – L. Metke

  1. Hi Chris – we are considering offering a Pose Seminar on Saturday June 11th (probably from 9:00am-1:00pm). We will be posting it on the website in the next few weeks once we have made our decision about the date.
    Thank you for your interest in the Pose Method!

  2. Hi Rob, thank you for your inquiry! We have not scheduled any Pose seminars for 2018. We will most likely conduct one in April or May and will post it on our website at least two months prior to the seminar date. We also post notifications for seminars on our Peak Performance Physical Therapy Facebook page.

  3. Hello Ana,
    We haven’t set any 2019 seminars as of yet. This past year there seemed to be less interest, but if we get enough people interested then we definitely will have one. If you know of any other runners interested then let us know! We like to have at least 6 participants to hold a class.
    I will message you back if we set a date.
