When you’ve already completed the swim and cycle it’s vital that the you run with maximum efficiency without losing the dynamic movement that will create the speed you require.

Triathletes are becoming increasingly aware that the race can be won or lost on the run and are now taking the detailed approach associated with the swim and cycle.

Using the unique ViMove technology I am able to analyse your running dynamics including,

ground reaction force, acceleration during stride, ground contact time, cadence, vertical displacement and stability of the knee.

This information is given per leg so it’s possible to get a clear understanding of your symmetry and balance of movement as you run, this will maximise your efficiency and reduce your chances of injury during training and competition.

Used in conjunction with 360 degree video analysis of the whole of the body I am able to

understand the changes in technique needed maximise your performance.

The reports I produce on your gait analysis are a perfect way to include your sports therapist in your training, recovery and rehabilitation if you are injured.

I specialise in working with therapists and clients, creating a team approach, if you are going to get that PB it’s vital you have the best team around you possible and good information communication is vital.

Coaching Philosophy

My Coaching philosophy is based on producing competitors who, not only learn a running technique that is natural and safer, but also educates them to how and why we use the techniques, enabling the runner to make educated decisions about their technique as they run, using a self-diagnosis method that covers the whole body. This approach ensures you maximise efficiency and dynamic movement and dramatically reduce your chances of injury, enabling you to train harder and start your race with perfect preparation

Technique Coaching

The technique coaching specifically works on running technique, we will cover all aspects of your run stage, concentrating on foot contact, posture, cadence and the use of the fascial system, responsible for propreoception, elastic recoil and the creation of elastic energy. We will also include subjects such as postural changes as you run during transitions from the swim to cycle and cycle to run and we look at aspects such as the potential synergy between running and cycling cadence. This thought process will increase performance.

Working with your therapist

The information gained from the technique analysis is vital in shaping the coaching process, allowing me to work on specific areas that need improvement, the analysis reports that you receive are also invaluable to your sports therapist, helping them to understand your balance and symmetry as you move and where potential interventions can be made to address injuries, aid recovery and rehabilitation. A good working relationship between the runner, therapist and coach is essential in ensuring you attain your maximum potential.

Callum Hughes

2014 National Off road Champion

After having a great season of racing triathlons in 2014 including 11th at Ironman UK and 23rd at 70.3 Championships. All of these despite a fractured tibia at the beginning of the year.

After my season I set about trying to find someone who could prevent me becoming injured again. Thankfully I met Shane and all hope was restored, he is a fantastic guy with an abundance of enthusiasm much like myself.

We started working on different paces to see where my form changed, Shane was quick to pick up on all my flaws. He then gave me guidance on how to eliminate these of by changing small things in the way I run.

The result do far is that I’m four months uninjured. I would have been happy with that as the result but I’m also faster as a consequence of becoming more efficient. Working with Shane has certainly opened my eyes to how much more I can achieve.

Shane was recommended to me by my physiotherapist following a series of injuries during running training. I compete at GB age group level 70:3 triathlon so preventing injury and running fast are both important elements to me.  As a swimmer by background and a strong cyclist, my running has always let me down in races and in training has led to a number of injuries including a stress fracture last year to my second metatarsal.

As a physiotherapist by profession I was impressed by the amount of knowledge, passion and eye for perfection that Shane demonstrated. He is a man who clearly knows and understands the art of running and not only that, works hard to learn through field research from those that do run efficiently and most of all love running because of this.

Shane has not only taught me to love running in a faster and more efficient way but to understand my body and the way it moves in day to day life, which has effectively improved both my swim and bike too. I would highly recommend Shane to anyone that wants to improve their running speed or purely learn to love and enjoy running better.

Shane’s coaching has literally transformed my running! I was stuck in bit of a rut, feeling like a very poor runner and being rather confused as to why quite so many people were passing me when I came off the bike!

Shane’s explanation of how our bodies work and how we can harness natural processes and structures within them to run much more efficiently has been almost magical.

I really didn’t think I was capable of running a marathon, but Shane gave me the confidence to try an Ironman and I loved literally every step of the marathon, despite a very patchy training programme! I was also really thrilled and surprised to win my age group at the British Sprint Triathlon Championships, taking over 2 minutes off my last season’s 5km time – a win I definitely would not have achieved without this improvement in my running, which can all be credited to Shane as I didn’t significantly change my training volume or intensity. The very best thing that you could possibly do for your running would be to be coached by Shane – he is extraordinary!

GB Triathlete

I have been working with Shane for a few months now and as an older athlete who has raced for many years. Physiologically I have little left to improve. So in order to keep improving I have to look towards economy of movement. This is where Shane excels in quickly identifying potential areas where I can improve my efficiency.

As a Long course triathlete small changes can produce significant gains in race times. Shane has given me some key focus points that are starting to show some improvements in my running style, and I can use these to hold my running form when the going gets tough. The use of video analysis and analysis of my running dynamics has also helped me to understand how I move and how to improve.

We could not have been more grateful to Shane for his incredible work with our school triathlon team! Three of our pupils and one teacher were selected to race for the GB Age Group Triathlon team at the World Championships in Chicago and we are delighted to report that Shane’s coaching contributed MASSIVELY to two of the pupils taking 3 minutes off their 5km time from last season and the teacher improving by two minutes, leading to a British Age Group Championship win! Furthermore, the teacher went on to complete her first Ironman, something she thought wouldn’t be possible because of recurring injuries!

Shane’s technical expertise and ability to deliver his knowledge in an way that is really clear to understand, as well as making changes to our techniques that are easy to implement and maintain is truly exceptional. Not only has he made us faster, but he has also substanitally reduced our injury risk, by making us more in tune with our bodies and how we were designed to run!

I could not recommend Shane more highly: if you want to make significant improvements to your running, you MUST ask Shane to coach you!

As an athlete I am always looking to improve my performance, although running is not the main aspect of my sport I was keen to understand whether I was maximising my potential.

Working with Shane has helped me to understand how my body loads as I run and more importantly how carrying my bike during competition effects my balance and efficiency of movement. The use of the ViMove analysis has enabled me to see and understand information that effects my performance, it’s not all about data,

Shane has also changed the way I think about running and moving my body. I would certainly recommend him and look forward to working with him in the future.

GB Triathlete, Physiotherapist

Shane was recommended to me by both physiotherapist and chiropractor to analyse my running early into the triathlon season. His approach is great; his understanding and passion for running shows in his coaching and his explanation as to ‘how’ to achieve and ‘why’ we would want to achieve each element of the running technique was well explained. Being able to work alongside Shane and the ViMove analysis makes for an exciting season and I am certainly hopeful that his input will massively improve my running form and ultimately, speed!

I’d been trying to figure out over the last 12 months why my running hadn’t improved to my aspired level, and had even resorted to buying a £400 Garmin Triathlon watch that collected a range of technical data relating to stride length, ground contact time and cadence via the heart rate monitor. So I now had some data; but the issue with this is that the data is only useful if you know how to use it! Whilst I could see that my ground contact time was way too long the rest of the numbers gave me little clue as to what to change to deliver any level of marked improvements. After todays session my only regret is that it took me 18 months to realise that enlisting professional help would have me enlightened me far more quickly (and at much less expense) than the route I took trying to resolve my own issues.
I would recommend Shane to anyone that would like to understand efficient movement and how to perfect it.

The inaugural Running Reborn and TriSwimCoaching.com running video analysis Clinic was an out and out success. From the start, there was a huge range of ability and experience in the group, ranging from ultramarathoners to Ironmen, 800m track specialists to club level triathletes and everybody in between. The beauty of the concept of Running Reborn is that it applies to everyone, no matter what your level of experience or expertise. Shane’s thorough understanding of dynamic movement and the basic essentials of running is inspiring and leads to fascinating group discussions. This really is about free speed.
