On getting started with The Running School...

"I was a retail manager for a sports brand. It sounds very corny but I love helping people, and being coach you can do that. I’ve always been really passionate about sports.

"I found that the more I got into the sports industry, the more I was enjoying the business side and the marketing side, and The Running School has been a perfect fit for me. Mike Antoniades, the founder of The Running School, is so passionate about what he does; he’s great to work for."

On what The Running School do...

"The company as a whole, we look at people’s biomechanics, we look at their movement patterns and then we teach them to move better, to run better and to run faster if that’s something they want to achieve. But everything is based on an individual’s objectives.

"The first session involves us looking at an individual’s movement. We have a look at their movement skills on our dynamic movement skills mats. 

"We also look at their functional biomechanics and their running technique. From there, we look at their strengths and their weaknesses.

"We improve people’s movements and get them running better based on what they want to achieve."
