We were taught how to dribble a soccer ball, how to dance gracefully and how to serve in tennis, but nobody taught us how to move in the most natural way possible – nobody taught us how to run.

Run180 has a scientifically proven message helping you to run with more joy and with less injury, whether you want to improve your current performance, are new to running or injured due to poor running technique.

RUN180 RUN TO THE RHYTHM

BOOK AN ASSESSMENT OR WORKSHOP

The Run180 method teaches you how to optimise your running technique through the use of a specific rhythm or cadence. Cadence or rhythm is one of the key ingredients for your perfect run. Think quick, light steps.

By increasing your cadence/rhythm towards an average of 180 steps per minute (SPM/BPM) you run with greater efficiency and ease and with less likelihood of injury.

GREATER EFFICIENCY MEANS THAT YOU RUN LIGHTER, EASIER AND FASTER

FASTER

Trying to improve your personal best or increase your mileage? Let’s make sure your program is working for you so that you can continue to hit the track, treadmill or trail.

NEW

Many people say that running is not for them because it’s either too hard or it hurts. That’s understandable if you’re not doing it properly. Run180 will show you how.

INJURED

Humans are born to run. Like most mammals, it is how we have survived. Running is never the problem, but how we are doing it may be. Run180 will get you back on track.

AT RUN180, OUR AIM IS TO HELP YOU RUN PROPERLY SO YOU CAN ENJOY IT

When you run at an optimal cadence/rhythm, which is close to an average of 180 BPM, your body:

> lands on the fore or mid foot, which is where our natural spring mechanisms are;

> minimises compression in all weight-bearing joints; and

> decreases unwanted muscle tension;

When we compare the overall impact on our bodies of high versus low cadence/rhythm, it is clear that running at a higher cadence/rhythm is optimal.

HIGH (average 180 BPM)

Spring Activation + Optimal Muscle Firing + Lightness = Efficiency and less injury.

LOW (average 160 BPM)

Compression + Tension + Braking = Inefficiencies and injury.
