Run Faster! Run Easier! Run Injury Free! What is Good Form Running (GFR)? GFR is a running technique curriculum based on the idea that running is a skill to be learned. Rooted in simplicity, GFR focuses on four elements of technique (see sidebar) that will help prevent injury and increase eﬃciency in runners.
GFR Classes at Big Peach Running Co. (BPRC) BPRC oﬀers GFR classes on a monthly basis. Each class consists of (F) hours of instrucGon (over two sessions) and is taught by a cerGﬁed GFR coach. Class siIe is limited to JK parGcipants to ensure an inGmate coaching environment. Class fee is LMN for the enGre four hours of instrucGon.
What can I expect at a GFR Class? Each studentOs goals, injuries and backgrounds are idenGﬁed at the outset. Video footage of each student is frequently gathered to understand baseline form and to idenGfy improvement and areas that need addiGonal focus (all video ﬁles are also emailed to students). Students receive thorough instrucGon on drills to hone each element of GFR and receive individualiIed instrucGon based on video analysis. SddiGonal topics such as equipment, stretching, core strength and other consideraGons relaGve to GFR are discussed throughout the curriculum.
How do I sign up for a Class? Visit www.bigpeachrunningco.com and click on “Good Form Running” on the home page. From there, scroll to “Class Schedule” and select the store convenient to you. You will then be directed to the sign up page. We hope to see you soon!
