Who should join:

  • Anyone wishing to learn how to run SAFELY, EFFICIENTLY & POWERFULLY via the Squat/Scoot method of mid-foot running (as developed by coach Stapleton)
  • Anyone who has been frustrated with on-going soft tissue injuries from running (IT-Band, Runner’s knee, plantar fascitis, Achilles tendonitis etc.) whilst running in thick, traditional running shoes
  • Anyone who has tried to shift from traditional running shoes to ‘minimalist’ footwear or barefoot without success
  • Anyone interested in learning how to move quietly with less effort on any running surface in gradually LESS footwear
  • Coach Stapleton is NOT approaching this as a “run barefoot or don’t join us” clinic. He, on the contrary, will show you how to move in the squat/scoot style no matter what you have or DO NOT have on your feet. As part of the process, you can CHOOSE to go barefoot outdoors as you progress through the off-road drills designed to:
  • Strengthen your feet, calves, quads, hams, gluts, abdomen
  • Improve your balance & centering
  • Initiate the power push-off the the ‘flicking’ technique
  • Coordinate the arm action with the breathing rhythm with the foot turnover

This is a unique opportunity for you to be trained by 2 of the VERY best in the business.

The environment will be uplifting, fulfilling, challenging & ‘over the top!
