When you walk, you land on your heels. When you sprint, you land on your toes. An optimal running gait falls somewhere in-between. Efficient running is about landing on your sweet spot. Not your heel, not your toes.
Run barefoot to discover your optimal running form. You’ll discover immediately that when you run barefoot, you’re not landing on your heels. Instead you are landing on your midfoot/forefoot. Unfortunately, in today’s world, there are many unnatural surfaces that make it impractical to run barefoot on a regular basis. The Newton Natural Running program teaches you how to run with that same barefoot form while wearing shoes.
While Newton shoes are specifically designed to maximize your ability to run with natural running form, you can do this in many different brands of shoes. Here at B.A.S.E. Training, we are about teaching you to run with efficient natural running form whether you run in Newtons or not. Some shoes do hinder your ability to run with Natural Running form though, so we can help you steer clear of those and point you toward models that will facilitate a Natural Running form.
Landing on your midfoot/forefoot is the most natural way to run. It is also the fastest and most efficient way to run. So come take a clinic or some one-on-one running lessons with certified Newton Natural Running Coach, Ryan Chapman. You will find yourself running injury free, with less energy expenditure, and further and faster than ever before.
