    Thank you kindly Calum and the team from IWF…
    I recently completed your online running course and found it to be excellent and packed full of the the right information…I have been a runner for the last 15 years, a late starter in some peoples eyes, and I have naturally always had a mid to forefoot technique and high cadence. When I started out people used to try and change my technique and I was left with endless knee complaints and back issues.
    Having researched and read various publications on running technique and coaching I was surprised to find very few courses available for PT’s, that support my technique and style and provide actual resources to further knowledge and practical application after the course is completed…this course by yourself and IWF certainly filled that gap.
    Once again, Thanks!

    I have done two online courses with Institute of Fitness, Running for Success and Pregnancy and Beyond and both have been informative, clear to understand and I learnt heaps! There were lots of links to video’s on both!
    Both of these courses are a must for personal trainers who offer strength and cardio programs and I loved them both and feel a lot more knowledgeable and able to help my clients more which is what we are in the business of!
