VIVOBAREFOOT Training Clinic site launch!

 The VIVOBAREFOOT Training website has launched!  Now you have a dedicated site to learn more about mastering the skill of barefoot running.
On the main page is your link to download  Lee Saxby's eBook,  Proprioception: Making sense of barefoot running as well as links to find a certified coach in your area.

   I was invited by Terra Plana VIVOBAREFOOT to attend the coaching class back in May.  I do not sell their shoes, although I like them, and am not paid to choose this coaching system over any other. I like it because it makes sense in that it blends biomechanics with the intuative movement part of the brain to change running form.  Through testing it out myself I get how it works and am a better runner for it. 

   It has been hard work to pass the testing to be certified yet each time I coach I learn more about running and really think that I am making a difference in others running experience.  It has been very rewarding.

  I have been asked many questions about my experience with VIVOBAREFOOT and my answers have always been positive whether it has been testing their shoes out or the coaching program.

  During the coaching program they gave us the tools to analyze running form and the knowledge of how to change it through functional drills and movements all of which are done barefoot.  This is a shoe company that gets that running is best learned through barefoot running and when shoes are needed they offer shoes that promote barefoot form as much as a shoe can and work to perfect that quality. 

Want to become a coach?  There is a list of upcoming dates coming up in the UK!

Go check out the new site and don't forget to follow on facebook and Twitter to keep up to date on the happenings at VIVOBAREFOOT.
